its the most wonderful time of the year

Despite it being one of my very favorite holidays, I am almost always horribly unprepared for Halloween.  I usually end up raiding my closet the night that I am supposed to be heading out to a big costume party, and putting something together based on which crazy pieces I have been yearning to wear.  However, this year, I have had to take action a few days early, as Im heading down to New York City to celebrate the season (and a birthday!) with one of my very best friends.  So, being in a glittery sort of mood, I loaded up my suitcase with a 70's embroidered kaftan, silver shoes, and loads of sparkly vintage jewelry.  I am planning on being a starry night.  Hope you all enjoy the one weekend a year with the best excuse to wear whatever you damn well please.  Happy, happy, happy halloween!

Oona's typography: Just because the world is a mess, doesnt mean you have to look like one

When the Harvard Square vintage staple, Oona's Experienced Clothing, changed ownership in 2010 after 38 years, I was happy to work with the new owner, Ellie Mueller, on her logo redesign(hand lettered!) and signage.  This fall, I had the chance to work with Ms. Mueller again on some advertising.  She colored up some vintage photographs, and I added the dada-inspired fonts she requested for her sassy catchphrases.  Any regular reader of the Improper Bostonian, the Boston Phoenix, the Weekly Dig, or the Harvard Crimson, may have spotted our collaborations in the pages of recent issues(not to mention a few to come!).

my fair lady

Been spending a lot of time with this lady lately while working on one of my new favorite projects.  I will be sure to introduce her soon :)

flying high

Many moons ago, I inked up these little guys after a request from TJX for hand drawn vintage planes.  It was so long ago, I cant even remember what exactly they were for, but I have to imagine it was something kid related.  Recently, the vintage planes soared back into my life when my friend Anni (the delightful designer in charge of kids bedding at TJX) found she needed an aeronautical inspired sheet print to go with the quilt she was designing.  She thought back to my planes and gave me a ring.  A few hours later, I vectorized these babies and gave 'em a whole new color blocked look.  Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?  What do you think?
