The Grey's Dear Whoever,


Letter to the universe and by universe I mean anyone willing to support a starving artist: I'm not generally this nerdy but all the Grey's Anatomy watching and common phrase redundancies ("007" "Seriously.") is starting to influence the need to be, among other things, you know, hardcore, like Cristina Yang. Oooh or Calli Torres. Wait, Miranda Bailey. Wow, I think I just reached the point when everything needs a cursory Mc in front of it. Besides, does anyone really read these posts? Digress. 

 Below I've diligently inventoried a few current favorites (ahem), so I'll skip the unabashed begging and superfluous commentary and just make a point. Can you, I mean, would you mind bringing me these gorgeous things on my eternal wish list like before I die. I'm an artist for Pete's sake... do you know how expensive art supplies are these days (falls out of chair)? I mean, seriously.Seriously. Do you know how difficult it is to even sell art? Bottom-line, I want cute things too, okay. 

Do you think I should I write a letter to Proenza Schouler? My congressman? Barney's? At this point, I'm totally not opposed to contacting the president if you think it'd help, and by president I mean Net-a-porter. obviously. Never actually heard back from Jeffrey Campbell. I wonder if Bergdorf's is hiring.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
