I feel like most designers are always searching for the same things... The perfect mark (logo) to embody their work, the raddest-most original design for a personal tattoo and the perfect-size sketch book with fine toothy paper to house wild and wondrous ideas. Well, I might've just found myself the last... Sleek, black, simple, easy enough to tote around and dotted grid paper! I'm too thrilled, really :)

I'm very saddened to hear of the passing of Amy Winehouse. Her "Back to Black" album came to me at a time when I most needed a powerful female voice. I can remember vividly putting those tracks on repeat. I had just moved into my first solo apartment after having just broken up with a longtime (royal Ahole) of a boyfriend. Lots of new found freedom and a "my terms" attitude. It was a really freakin' fun and somewhat self-destructive time and I wouldn't take back one minute. I feel I can dodge bullshit like Neo because of it. Below are some pics from Virgin Festival, Summer 2007. After wearing her album out, I was beyond thrilled to see her live with Lil Miss Taco Tuesday. An epic festival day.
Below are 2 wine label designs for my wine club. One of our members came up with the "Que Syrah, Syrah" line based on one of my favorite tunes and our type of grape. We're finally bottling our homemade brew next month, looking forward to finishing the process and tasting the fruits of my labor.
Cool off with this hydrating cocktail this steamy weekend.
First off... Aren't these fabulous?

So... my camera died this weekend... bummer. Although, it does look like it's been through some sort of war, so prob due time for an upgrade. The following pics are thru my cell phone. Hopefully they capture the spectacular lil vaca I had in the South Jersey shore.
A new temporary tattoo alternative brought to you by Swiss Miss. No rainbows and unicorns here... think design nerd/hipster graphics. Kinda cute, especially since I really want one (a real one) and can't bring myself (yet) to mark my body for like... ever. Purchase on the Tattly site.

No not that... Well... maybe that too... But look below!
Way cheaper (in most cases) than any Vicky's items, so I'm happy about that. Although... I've never really been a hat person. I've always wanted to be! I just don't think I've found the hat for me. Lately, any time I pass one I've been trying it on, but just getting frustrated because I can't tell if it's "me" or not. While at the mall the other day, I tried some on with Sweet Lips and he gave me the thumbs up or thumbs down and basically dragged me to the register with my purchase. He was damn near giddy at the sight of me wearing a hat. It was pretty funny. So, I settled on a simple straw hat with black ribbon trim... nothing too flappy or big, but a nice size/wide brim option. I'll take some pics this weekend while I rock it on the beach!

All I can think of is the ocean spray, the seafood smorgasbords, the retro rides, sand, sun & Sweet Lips... I can't wait to escape to the shore this weekend! Here are some easy/breezy summertime images of where my head is at.

This is a recipe I saw that I'm salivating to try... and looking at the ingredients, it's bound to be delish.

If this exist, I'm totally screwed since my car has taken 2 squirrel lives in the past 2 weeks. It's honestly a sickening feeling... the sound of crunching/cracking lil harmless squirrel limbs. All he (or she) was trying to do was get a nut... aren't we all in some way or another??? This print by Andreas Krapf made me chuckle.
Check out a couple more of his fun pieces...
