Lyric cins: Lita Ford series

 Rock legend, Lita Ford, lead guitarist for The Runaways, came to work today for a Meet and Greet. I made some lyric sheets in anticipation.
 This might be a new design exercise for me. Mixing music and design is just logical.

Good Knight...

 The Merry Karnowsky gallery held Craola's solo show, "Good Knight" May 17th, 2014.
 He steps it up every single time.
 I cannot stop staring at all the details and hidden imagery, especially when the size of a lot of the new paintings are enormous.
 "The Hunting Party" was one of my favorite pieces that night.

Merry Bird...

3D Printing machines are mesmerizing.
I've been staring at these earrings from Soon Salon for practically a year. I'm pretty sure I would never wear them, but I still can't stop imagining the process in creating them.

Ribbon Lei...

 It's graduation season, and both my sister and my cousinish have officially earned the title of Doctor this past week. Honestly, the graduation ceremonies snuck up on me, and I had to scramble to request time off and make this lei for Cousinish T.
She sent me this link to with the DIY instruction. The project is not complicated, but it is time consuming, and well worth it in the end.

Congratulations to all 2014 graduates!

Dragon Hoodie...

I want this.
I will wear it to work.
I will wear it to go shopping and to eat at fancy restaurants too.
If you buy me this, I owe you 200 batches of cupcakes, and a lifetime of coffee dates.

50 Shades of Black...

What's stopping me from going to an art show in the middle of the week? I'm so tempted.

Every Oscar Dress...

Despite the Academy Awards shutting down all the streets around my block this weekend, I love the event, and always have. This info graphic reminds me of when I used to watch the show with a sketchbook in front of me frantically scribbling gestures of the dresses that appeared on screen for all of 2 minutes.

Sochi Olympic logo...

I'm not in love with the new Olympic logo, but I do appreciate this article that debates its merits.

Branded arts walls...

 These walls are covered up and gone now, but a few weeks ago a new friend took me to the buildings to explore.
 I was ecstatic to see Yoskay Yamamoto's mural...
 and Ekundayo's...
 and Hush's
 and Shark Toof's
and two Dabs and Myla's!
