SF to LA

After two great days in San Fran I'm off to LA in the morning.  It's going to be a long drive down the coast but I have planned a few stops along the way.  Photos to follow in the next week for so!  Will be sure to keep you posted along the way :-)

West coast road trip

Not much going on in NY and I had the opportunity to come out to Vegas to shoot some pictures and hang out with some great people.  Of course since I'm already out on the west coast I thought I'd make a nice long trip out of it. 

Follow me as I travel from Vegas to San Fran to LA to San Diego to Phoenix and then back to NY.  By the time I get back to the big apple the trees will be lovely warm shades of orange and red I hope. 

On the agenda for the week... work, sun and helicopters!

It's raining, it's pouring...

I got inspired when I found myself randomly looking at bridesmaids dresses.  I love a good color palate!

Check this out!  So many fun wedding ideas these days!  And some of the best design inspirations too :)

Giving a new meaning to the term expressionism.

A lot of the time people tell me they love that I use so much color in my paintings.  This past week it was my roommate's birthday and she's been telling me for years (7 to be exact) that she wants me to paint something she can hang in her room to brighten it up.

This is semi-inspired by a photo I saw in a blog... and mostly it was just the colors that inspired me.

Thinking I may make this into a series of paintings.

Just Le-go

Feeling a little fun and playful today despite the gloomy skies.

A cheerful May 17th!

Turning over a new leaf

A little spring cleaning and a new inspiration!

It's sad but I've been trying to get more of a concentration for my blog since the new year.  I read a post somewhere about how designers need to practice everyday, even if it's only for 15 minutes a day.  So I told myself I was going to design something new everyday... that hasn't happened; mostly due to the fact that I can never think of something to design out of thin air.  Today it came to me though... It's been raining in NY for awhile now and it's going to be raining all week.  Looks like those April showers have continued well in May now.

I've decided to 'design for the dates'.  Each date is going to have it's very own design.  Whether its is typography, pictorial or a mix of the two; I finally have found a theme.  Now my challenge is sticking to you.

Sell sell sell

While I sit here and search site after site for jobs, I thought why not sell myself... and by myself I mean my artwork.

This has been a really tough decision for me.  I have always wanted to but letting things go has never been easy for me; let alone letting a piece of myself go.  But here I am at a crossroads while I look to market myself more and get my name out there this just seems like the next step in the process.  Also hopefully it will make me paint and create a lot more often.

So here's to moving on and letting go!

Check out my work, everything is available in prints as well as the originals.  All prints are giclee artist enhanced.

Check out my work on artbreak

Have been traveling a ton as well. Will update with more 

photos soon but for now, I leave you with Venice, CA

Tuning up the engine

13% power left on my laptop so think is going to be short and sweet.  Social media has all of the sudden taken over my life.

First, portfolio site is up and running.  Still in the midst of tweaking various things but take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.

Now that the site is up I had to update my Linked In page.

And once I updated LinkedIn it became this spiraling downward fall into the depths of social media.  I joined Twitter, something I never thought I would do but how easy is Twitter?!  Better than Facebook if you're going to post inspiration and artsy fartsy thoughts all day, most of my friends don't care where I get my inspiration from they just like the final product.

Tweet Me | Twitter

4% left.

And now because of Twitter I have taken on a new challenge (3% left)


365 new designs.  That's right, Smash Mag has challenged all designers to design something new everyday, just 15 minutes.  Now all I need is a theme.

Closing the laptop and putting the thinking cap on.
