update

has it really been 2 months since I last posted? time flies when you're planning an adventure. I'll likely be abandoning to blush for a short time, while I travel SE Asia. keep updated on the panda adventure here.

mexilove


the Riviera Maya is a magical place. too much to see and far too many smiles to catch in one day. the richly tanned natives of Mexico are just lovely beings.

my sister and I had a delicious time soaking up the sun, sight seeing, snorkeling and dancing.
happy birthday sweet sister!

paint the roses red

since wonderland is the theme of this weekend, I thought I should share another little hand drawn diddy that I did for work. McRobbie Optamedia is this years wine sponsor for the ACE in wonderland event, so 'drink me' tags were certainly in order.

below are some images I captured during the intense process.

dreams.



been really into hand type. I'm trying my own hand at calligraphy. I'd like to have more tattoos with a little 'ting touch,' so I've drawn one up above. I've had many people comment on where it should go... and the strangest, yet most brilliant one was along my thigh... up and down. naturally, I mocked it up and it looks so sick! if I get it done, it'll be by far my favorite tattoo! now... just need to find the perfect artist.

as an aside, I saw the second image on a pia ulin's site. when I dream, I dream in this place. it was like a deja vu moment minus the balloons. I love you white room. xo.

miss wonderland

she reminds me of alice.

I think so. thank you to lisa who made me go back in the morning with $15 cash to pick these pups up.

inspired


is there such a thing as being typobsessed? yes. I do believe there is and I have become a whole hearted type addict, not that I wasn't before... but I was more of a computer generated typoholic. I'm now retreating back to the uni years where professors wouldn't give us access to computers until hand rendered sketches were produced and paint brushes were taken away (yes, this did actually happen to me in an oil class, thank goodness for palette knives).


give me a piece of paper, a torn piece of canvas, a notepad, a magazine... and I WILL doodle, scratch, sketch, and mark it with anything that's on my mind.

be inspired by type.


apologies for the lack of light, we don't have lightbulbs... art by candlelight, it's the new pink.
