I put some of my handmade books in my Etsy Shop, and I really just wanna keep filling and filling it up! I remembered that my dad had this little mini tripod, and that my mom has an excellent cannon digital camera. So I took those two things, set up a little makeshift photo studio with the sun pouring through my window and took some yummy pictures. Heres how some of them came out :
My new Etsy shop, Handmade Yummies, is up and running. There is a limited amount of stuff in my shop at the moment, but that will change in the coming days. I am really excited about this little online venture, and I hope you will check it out! I will have everything from weavings and yarn to prints and handmade books going in there. BUY MY SHIT. thanks.
The mindlessness of internet channel surfing is awesome in its own right, and now that my stumble upon button knows me so well it always sends me to some fascinating artist I have never heard of before. This time it was Hennie Haworth’s site . She is an ilustrator working out of London who has done work for a number of real big name clients. Check out her site for all the yummies. I really just love the way she draws, especially just the simple little objects. Theres great detail in the way she draws people. Check out the plaid on one of the girls skirts. it just looks cooool.
So I am going back home tomorrow for realzzz. I’m excited to get back to my little bedroom studio and get some work done! But it’s always sad to leave Savannah. I’ll have a lot more to write about when i get home and start getting my hands on things! So I’ll be on the 8:20 am train back to Penn Station!
Walked again from uptown to midtown. This time I took a different route. Walked down Bull St., and when I came to the Desoto Row area, I remembered a lot of the great graffiti art that pops up in this tiny spot called the Starland District. Sadly, a lot of what I remember being there a few years ago when I was in college has been painted over boring white. But heres some snapshots of what I did find. I should also point out that my cell phone has been a savior on this trip as far as documentation goes, considering my lack of digital camera. Still, I don’t think the photos come out half bad.
I am officially re-obsessed with this show, and have to point out that Angela and Rayanne were SO ahead of their time style-wise. Urban Outfitters should personally thank Patrick R. Norris, who did the costume design for the show.
I should also point out that my new fashion mission is to be more like Rayanne Graff, I’m talking blonde streak and all. I want it. I will do it. Consider it done.
stumbled upon the website of Alyssa Nassner and fell in love. She is a super talented illustrator and pattern designer, and I found myself getting lost in her body of work. Its cute and clean lined, and pleasing on the eyeballs. I loved these craft inspired illustrations..
As I said earlier, she is also an extremely talented pattern designer, and there are a lot of great images on her site, but i fell in love with these stationary/paper good designs. The row of houses reminds me of Brooklyn, and the colors she uses in general are pure eye candy.
As a born and raised New Yorker, walking (fast preferably) has always been something I am used to. And before moving down south for college, I hadn’t even really thought of any other way to get around, not even by bicycle. As soon as I got to Savannah bicycle is what I did, that is, until I got in a series of debilitating bicycle accidents that have probably scared me away from the two wheeled machines forever. That began my serious walking, which luckily was easy in a city as small as Savannah, and I could always get anywhere in the city within 45 minutes on my feet. After moving back to New York, I realized how much the subway actually takes away from the walking exercise I felt like I was getting down in the dirty dirty.
SO. Now, on my little visit down here I find myself walking again, especially when Herbie is away at work, and I am too scared to get on his fancy hipster fixed gear. My walk today took me from Ardsley Park to The Sentient Bean, about 30 minutes, and heres some snappies I took along the way.
