The way I communicate can make a freakin eunuch mate.

New show! New mailers! Printing in the studio today:

As a present for the glorious coworkers of orange glory, I made orange ornaments!!!! Cheesy!

For scale... orange eyes.

And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings

It's the last day of 2010... a year that has treated me very well. This is where I get all sappy and reminisce over the blessings this year has brought to me. It was a year of firsts. These are just 15 of the many.

1. First trip to SXSW, for winning an art contest. A chance to see a lot of amazing bands, meet a lot of amazing people, and add some serious street cred to my resume.

2. First bike week in Rochester. So much fun!
3. First major bike crash since two summers ago. Skinned knees and bent wheels.
4. First tattoo (thanks Greg).

5. First time seeing a Langhorne Slim show since SUNY Purchase days. A lot of amazing concerts this year.
6. First live painting with a band.
7. First time falling in the Erie Canal (yeah, it's been a clumsy year as well).
8. First out of house studio since college, where I'm blogging from RIGHT NOW.
9. First full week catering job at Chapin Mills in Batavia. Zen.

10. First Five Boro Bike tour. It won't be my last!

11. First time organizing an event... the first annual Rochester tweed run!

12. First bike ride out to Marge's... a bar on the BEACH. One of many Rochester hidden gems discovered this year.
13. First Rochester Indiefest.

14. First time biking around NYC in traffic... so much fun, as long as you have someone with you who knows the ropes.
15. First time having an old professor at an art opening, I was so honored!

Here's a toast *clink* to 2011 being even better!

Zuzu's petals aren't there either, George Bailey.

This Friday I had the distinct honor of being invited to a prop-making party for a film. We made inventions to go in a crazy inventor's room. I made the prototype for a shark submarine, which would be very helpful in case of a tsunami.

Close up on the SHARK SUBMARINE.

Final poster for show, with type!

Yesterday was a wonderful day for skiing. I tackled my favorite trail... and the sun shone. Today was not as fortunate, I went out and broke my glasses on a hard spill.

We'll rock this house.

Progress on the poster. Type is coming!

Here I go, giving in again

The holidays are upon me, and I have lapsed in my blogging. Apologies all around! I've been working this week diligently on a poster on a show coming up in January (at the Bug Jar for all of your ROCHESTERIANS). I've been looking at a lot of Dan Danger work for inspiration, and this is but one layer of the final piece that will be coming your way :)

Thank you to all who came out for our first ever FIRST FRIDAY in our studio! We had a lot of fun meeting everyone, and getting to know our neighbors! What a blessing it is to have a studio in such a creative space. Below, a blurry part of my wall display.

More blurry pictures! From the Langhorne Slim show last weekend! What a fun time, I visited with some good old friends in Ithaca, and ended up at Castaways, a seriously fun venue. Thanks for the fabulous day and show, friends!
