Rumi in graphite

It's been a while since I held a pencil in my hand for more than just a basic pre-paint sketch. So, I decided to put down the watercolors, temporarily, and heavily work the graphite and charcoals in a new, currently untitled series... at least until those pretty colors start beckoning again. Inspired by Rumi Neely of fashiontoast and a photo by Colin Sokol, I sent this to her week...hopefully she likes it even more than the last.

Prints, iPhone skins, throw pillows and more available here

Brooklyn cinder block

I want to tell you about Max Steiner, one of my favorite new designers whose visionary buoyancy sheds new light on his innate talent to see outside the box. When I was first contacted by Max, about a week ago, I did what anyone would do. I browsed his website. And as an artist, was instantly drawn to the various elements of his inspiring collections. Conceptualizing the simplicity of paper folding, Max tells me, "Folding paper since I was five years old has led to my ORIGAMI collection, one of my most popular. Working in an industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn has led to the development of the CINDER BLOCK collection." And the results are flawlessly executed. Not only does he incorporate an organic wearability through his architectural jewelry, but the fact that he does so with such an influential voice of his everyday surroundings, adds an extraordinary amount of intimacy that's hard to come by. Thank you, Max for my rad new cinder block necklace. I sorta refuse to tak…

DIY: Malian Mud Cloth Bench

Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!

Love falling into you...

Waiting for cool autumn nights, corset lacing, a whimsy of gossamer textures, innovative shoulder pads and puff sleeves, midnight cappuccinos, muted palettes, delicate ruffle detailing, and biker boots.
