Just for kicks.

sneak peak from the new

ready for launch, SOMEDAY! probably not that soon. but, YAY!


here's another something or other for the site or not.

MONA at the Doghaus...

The studio where I work, MONA, has a room in a designer show house. The DogHaus benefits the Pennsylvania SPCA and has rooms designed by twenty-plus artists. I was fortunate enough to be the studio's in-house photographer on this project. I was able to photograph the individual pieces and the finished room. I was also able to procure a ticket to the opening event. This was one of the strangest nights of my life. It basically consisted of gin and tonics, excellent finger foods and a bunch of people who can afford to pay $175 to go to a party for three hours.


The MONA room was designed and constructed by the likes of Robert Aiosa(.com), Emily Burch(soon to be of thimbleknock), Kevin Derrick(blogmaster for DesignPhiladelphia and member of BahdeeBahdu) and others I do not feel like tracking down at this moment.

07. Oh no!

I left my external hard drive in Sayre! What a doo-doo head.

I won't get it back for 4 weeks, so I quess I'm actually going to have to do new things to post on here.

Waverly Opera House. I watched my mother in Harvey this weekend.

A birthday present from my parents. BEST EVER! My shoe for scale.

06. Oops!

So I fell behind. It was not totally my fault. I had to travel a few hundred miles and blah blah excuses. I watched Firefly (or Firefly)all day and when I finished the last episode I watched Serenity. Pure bliss.

Here is No. 2 on my list of ladies I am in love with.

Her name is River Tam.
She is a fictional character.
She can kill you without breaking a sweat.
She knows what I'm thinking.

I'm hooked.

05. The most beautiful girl...

I would like to introduce you to my favorite roommate, my best friend and the most beautiful girl in my life.

Her name is Milos. Well, to be proper, her name is Madame Milos Milos Ganoush.

She runs.
She jumps.
She howls like an angel.
And she loves my morning breathe.

I am under her spell.

03. Trees and thank you...

Day 03, day 03, day 03.

Today seemed like a very long day.

I think tomorrow will be another long day.

I made this a couple months back for my intermediate drawing class. It's a portrait of my budding birch bonsai tree. Today this tree looks quite a bit different.

Much more branchy.

And leafy.
