Have your shoes and eat them too!

We have been doing a lot of Girls nights lately.  Dancing, dinners out, and Dream board making.

On the heels (pun intended!) of our successful dream necklace craft night, we all got together again and under the supervision of our super creative friend K.R. we made chocolate shoes.  It was a great night.  About 7 of us sat around painting chocolate patterns into our plastic molds. We laughed, we chatted, and of course we ate a lot of chocolate.  The end results were so great, I don't know if I can ever bring myself to eat mine.  

Let me also take this moment to plug the organizer of this night, K.R.   Why have a blog if you can't rave about how great all your friends are. By day she works on visual effects for film.  By night, she has been taking cake decorating classes and practicing her pastry chef fantasies on us (lucky us!) Here is a look at some of her amazing creations.  You can see more on her website. And if you live in the L.A. area, you should talk to her about ordering your own custom, edible, delight for your special event.

Sneaking my art on set

I still haven't made any real prints yet. But the designs are separated and already to go. I have paper and ink print outs of everything and of course the samples I started with.  So when I was asked to make a "Cool Kids Room, that has blue accents and paper airplanes" for an upcoming Adidas shoot , how could I not take advantage of free publicity and use some of my own art.  

They wanted everything sort of haphazard and messy, with bold graphic elements.  Not necessarily my aesthetic.  I usually like things a little more orderly.  The client loved it, and that's all that matters.  Can't wait to see what the ads look like (keep an eye out for them in stores this fall!)
