Alice and the Angels

These pieces were done in a collab with photographer River Clark, some of my fav collab pieces ever! I've gotta do some more soon, I haven't had a time to do just some fun art pieces in a while because I've been doing so much corporate work lately. Hope you guys like them :D

I hope all of you are having a safe holiday out there. I had a ton of work to do today so I spent the majority of it listening to college football and working on a project for a client. I was just watching the USC/Oregon game and the SC defense was dressing me so I thought I'd do some musing when suddenly I came across this beautiful piece by my lovely photog friend Laretta Houston and the equally lovely Vanessa Marie. This just makes me feel like I could just fly away..LOL. I love how ethereal and yet goth it is, stunning work ladies <3 u both!!!

Christian Siriano's S/S10 runway show

Celestial Seasonings Perfectly Pear White Tea

This morning I had this delicious tea by Celestial Seasonings and I just had to share, since I've been gushing to my friends all day about how much I loved it. This morning while I was sipping my cup of Perfectly Pear goodness I also had the chance to do some musing on the net where I came across Christian Siriano's latest pieces from his S/S 10 line and I must say these looks have me ready for a tea party..LOL

Treasure Hunt

most of my accessories consist of my grandmother's jewelry, i love wearing it, always reminds me of her ;)

vintage top, mom's belt, F21 jeans and sweater , random bracelets

This weekend was my first time venturing out and going to some second hand shops in town and I must say I was very happy with what I found. I have two other jackets and two other shirts that I got so I'll post those as I wear them. I think when I go back I'll look for some dresses, brooches, clutches (for Christmas gifts I'm working on), bracelets, and rings...Oh my! :D

Painting the Past

Hey guys, so I'm trying to get better at blogging every week so bear with This week was pretty busy with letterhead and business card designs and a poster design for Savannah State University's Liberal Arts department. I really enjoyed working on that and got to have a lot of fun with the direction of it.

I'm also about to start two watercolor paintings for my parents' Christmas presents. My mom will be receiving a portrait of herself as a baby with her mother and my father will be receiving a portrait of his father. I'll be posting more progress shots over the weekend but here are my reference photos for the paintings. Good thing my parents don't read my
