Than's most recently finished project is up on the Starter homepage. He did all the lighting for the CG clothing that get torn off Tony Romo's sweaty, football body. He's so impressive!

Participated in a little Black Friday Sidewalk Sale with the ladies at Hands on 3rd. Some of my re-purposed VHS boxes-turned-blank journals. I also made little notepads with the leftover scraps.

Hair Portrait #1
Megan Burchett

All these pieces were collaged together to make a large cross with fresh carnations surrounding them all. It was really beautiful and made for a great focal point in the room.

Love You

pulp painting on homemade paper

The mask is being held up by a cast of Megan's hand, propped on a salvaged piece of vintage housing. It's impossible to see here, but over the eyes is a rope impression spelling out "Love You".

The dog masks hang in front of the ladies, enabling you to lift them up to reveal the face underneath. Unfortunately, I failed to take a picture without the mask and apparently the pictures I did take were not in focus, so hopefully this can be rectified and new pictures will be up shortly!Stay tuned...

British fashion designer Luella Bartley announced Tuesday Luella has stopped trading after its global licensee withdrew its investments in the label. Even the successful designers have no kind of foothold in the fashion industry and Luella has been around for 10 years. I will be sad to see her go if it comes to that; right now she's selling all her stuff at 50% off in an attempt to stay afloat. I looked through's archives to find some of my favorite Luella looks over the past few years. "One day you're in, and the next, you're out."

Pictures from the art show my best friend Megan Burchett and I put together last month. We had so much fun and enjoyed a little discipline and deadline in our art, being that it's already been a year and a half since we graduated! It was a Halloween-themed show which was befitting of both of our styles and topics of work.

Megan is in the middle, I'm so sad I didn't get a better picture of the hot pink hair she donned for the night!

Megan collaged together a group of prints and other small pieces of hers into this great centerpiece, flanked by fresh carnations. We totally got into a day-of-the-dead, vigil kind of mood and had lots of candles going. I will be posting pictures of the individual art in the next few days!

Ran across the coolest store yesterday while walking around on 3rd Street in Beverly Hills. Named after the artist, KRISLYN, is this gallery/retail space showcasing the most beautiful home decor. Everything looked like manipulated nature with these kinds of plants and shells that were so quirky and unusual. I've never wanted a specimen box as bad as her's with the craziest kind of life in them.

Saw this at a great store in Los Feliz, LA.
I love what they're about.

Reminds me of the fabulous corsets on Jean Paul Gautier's Fall 08 Couture show. I'm gonna try and forget the overalls, though.

I was so entertained yesterday when I went to drive Than to work and found that he's been making bacon in this completely graffiti-ed brick box! Little things like this building are what can make LA a totally exciting place to live. Not to mention being around so many professional artists who make work look fun, literally!
