Thursday, October 20, 2011 did I put my glasses?

It's not often that I would ever invite anyone into my studio without profusely apologizing for the mess. Actually, it's not often that I would invite anyone into my studio, period! As a creative sort, it's an easy excuse to fall back on. "I'm in the middle of a gazillion projects...I don't have TIME to clean up!". Fact is, I am in the middle of a gazillion projects and I am oh-so-cramped for space. My bedroom studio is extremely "cozy" (isn't that how real estate agents describe small houses?!) Well, lucky me... my real estate holdings are about to expand!

My youngest son is happily working and having a life 2 hours away, in an apartment of his own and I have finally cleared out his room. It's the top floor of the house and it's PERFECT! Skylights, space, seclusion... I've hit the trifecta! I'm posting 2 pictures...the old space and the soon-to-be new space. If anyone sees my glasses in the "creative squalor", will you let me know?

Moving LA (without seismic tremors...)

Last year's LA Times Food and Wine Expo promotion. Andrew Wahlquist did an excellent job of animating my work! On my to-do list...learn how to do this myself!

MOAK 2012 Promotion

Long time, no blog! I've been busy...! I want to share a recent piece I did for MOAK ( ) Italian coffee for their 2012 promotion. The MOAK espresso cup is, well, not just a beautifully designed cup. It also exudes good luck. So great coffee aside, drinking from this little vessel will insure lots of good things in your life! (I have GOT to get myself one of those!)

You'll see that Adam (of Eden fame) has gotten one of these delightful little talismans and, much to Eve's chagrin, prefers it to her apple...

This was a really enjoyable piece to work on. The only sketch change I received was to ensure that Eve's locks were strategically placed so as not to require 2 additional fig leaves... c'mon! It's Europe!
