Hey, everyone!

My apologies for not writing in so long. I’ve been working on new projects and have been neglecting this website. Boo to me! The new projects are quite exciting, though. I am proud to announce I will be blogging for myplasticheart, a gallery and boutique in NYC. I’ll be keeping you up to date with toy exclusives from them as well as art shows they’ll be presenting and a smattering of other goodies, like artist interviews and toy adventures around their neighborhood. I am also working with EVOKER on our website, Studio Miners, where we document our trips to artists’ studios as well as cool spaces. On a day to day basis, I am working at One Way Gallery in Providence, RI.  So forgive me if I am neglectful of this space and thank you for your continued support!

I’ve come up with the majority of my good ideas in the shower. Whether it be a new song, a solution to a work problem or an awesome gift idea, the shower is where it’s at. So, when I saw the AquaNotes, I went crazy with excitement. No more will I have to steal my niece’s bathtub crayons to fulfill my shower note-taking.

What kind of ideas have you crazy kids come up with in the shower?

Happy Everything

I found this video on Bits n’ Pieces, a blog featuring lovely tidbits procured from the internet. The band is Donora, based out of Pittsburgh and brimming with musical delights. The hooper is Lauren, a wicked hoop dancer.

Come Home Mr. Ill

Tommy Ill is one of my favorite (favourite!) New Zealand musicians. His songs are ridiculously catchy and his humor (humour!) is always spot on. He’s played at a couple of Makeshift shows in the past and always delivered a great performance along with his right hand man, Buck Beauchamp. Matchsticks, his last release was met with rave reviews across NZ and the single “Letters to the Editor” received heaps of airtime. “Come Home Mr. Ill” is a new video produced by Brian Hainsworth who Tommy also worked with for the “Letters to the Editor” video. Mr. Hainsworth describes the video process: “We wanted to make a video on a tiny budget that looked like we had a huge budget but were trying to pretend our big budget video was low budget, but actually we had no budget.” Precisely.

Check out the video and enjoy it until your eyes fall out. Then wait a little while until his new EP drops and BUY IT!

Hello, Picture Book

Posted by: team sweet

September 15th, 2009 >> Uncategorized

Before I left New Zealand, my lovely friend Mel and I spent some time perusing a book store in search of gifts. There’s nothing like being surrounded with endless possibilities, and that’s the feeling I get when looking up at the shelves upon shelves of books waiting to be plucked and ingested. One book in particular caught my eye - The Great Paper Caper. Right away I was attracted to the illustration style. The characters in the book are tiny-eyed and stick-legged, making for a very charming group. The text is sparse but witty and charming, with the forest dwellers looking to solve the mystery of disappearing trees from their home. The author and illustrator is Oliver Jeffers, an Irish artist, designer and writer now living in NYC. He’s no stranger to the children’s picture book, with five already under his belt. I’m so in love with the illustrations, I’m thinking about meticulously cutting out the pages and framing them to put up in my next apartment. is it wrong to cut up a book?!

Until next time…. frosted love to you!

Mythical Mondays

Forgive the shoddy craftsmanship of the above banner for today but all I have  to work with at the moment is an old scanner, a hamster wheel and some chewing gum. Once I am settled, better images promised. But I digress – Behold Mythical Mondays! This is a new feature I’m trying out  in which I ask my niece to either create a new mythical creature or to draw an existing one. Today she chose to create her own. And so we have…

Today’s creature:

puttrfly, indeed.

Putrfly (animus buttputterus)

My niece says: “A putrfly has two heads – one at each end of it’s long body. It eats from the top end and drinks from the bottom end… it’s bum… but there’s a head!… at this end.”

She just keeps learning everyday, aww. Enjoy your day, whether you are reading this on a Monday or not!
