on display: vintage vaction windows

It had been a while since I'd done up a display, so I had fun climbing around in the windows of Artifaktori's Davis Square store this week.

portrait: lindo&linda

portrait of the happy couple (which thankfully they loved! there are already plans in the works for framing and hanging...phew!)  created with pencil, highlighter, marker, glitter, ribbon, tissue paper, sparkly stars and a whole lotta love
This past weekend I was very honored to be a part of a specially curated exhibit in celebration of one of my favorite couples, my good friends, Amanda and Phil.  They tied the knot this weekend with a tear-jerkingly beautiful bilingual ceremony in the park and a truly outstanding reception at their favorite gallery space in Cambridge, MA.  My work was hung along side that of their multi-skilled friend base for an evening of visual decadence, dancing and live music - the perfect concoction to celebrate this talented couple!  It was certainly an event to remember.  Congratulations Amanda and Phil!  All my love to you both xo

ad design: cabana kids


yow!  I have been drowning in work lately, but thats never so bad, right?  This is the publicity piece I created for Artifaktori last week, inked up, scanned and finished off in good ol' photoshop.  With most of my looming deadlines out of the way for now, I think I need to find my way to that cabana....

concepts property of Home Goods
Apologies for the cheesy title, I just couldnt help myself.  Remember how I said I often work on holiday goods off season?  Well, during this super sweaty week, I am being transported back to spring as I develop an Easter dinnerware collection for Home Goods.  Up next...bunnies!

fresh finds: vintage textiles...

I picked up items from the 1940's-1960's...some of my very favorite decades!
...in the form of dresses and other fun things I can wear!  I had a blast with my pals yesterday at the Brimfield Fashion and Textile Show.  Three days a year isnt nearly enough time for all of the good stuff that fills up this show.  I wish I could go back every day...inspiration overload!
happy clams :)  Me and my friend, who is also named Amanda.  Photo of me(on left) by our other friend, who is...get this...ALSO NAMED AMANDA.  what are the chances?  I have never known so many Amandas in my life!  We are thinking we should start a band.  Obviously.

summer ad sketch up

scribbling up ideas for Artifaktori's next ad in the Weekly Dig in a vintage newsprint notebook, no less (...my dad likes to give me his old art school supplies from the 60's...I say yes to the pads of paper and NO to the paints) ...stay tuned :)

home holiday

Per usual, Im a bit late with my holiday wishes, but to be fair, I was distracted by burgers, beer and beach days, which took up a large portion of my home vacation (sometimes the best kind).  Hope everyone had a happy holiday!
