its been a while...

things have been crazy busy since moving to nyc. i work pretty much non stop and when not at the office or sleeping i try to catch up with my friends, usually by drinking too much... i'm ready for 2008 to be over and to get a fresh start in 2009. i want to start concentrating on my personal projects and illustrations again, and to build up my freelance base again. freelance has def been slacking since i moved here and its starting to pick up, i'm just horrible with time management... so here's to the end of 2008 and a better 2009!!!

oh, and santa came early this year. im typing this on my new mackbook pro!! and i got cs4, which is pretty awesome since all i ever get lately are bootleg versions... woot woot!!!! so i have no excuse anymore to not be productive.

i'm moving to nyc this weekend - finally!- so i decided to make a fun nyc outfit on polyvore. if you haven't checked out yet u really need to head over there, especially if you love to shop but don't always have the money. but be careful, it's addicting! i can spend forever on it trying to put together the perfect ensamble, as well as looking at all the other great sets other members have made. ciao ciao!

midwest travels

leaving early tomorrow morning with mom to go to my grandparent's house in ohio. i'll be back sometime sunday i guess, just a short trip. it'll be good to get out for a bit. i'm even more of a hermit here than i was in florida it's crazy. but work keeps me busy, i have a constant flow of freelance, i just wish the money was more constant... and i need to find an apt in nyc by summer. ciao ciao!

Friday, May 02, 2008



so i'm hanging out in VA right now at my parents house. i packed up and moved up here for about a month before heading off to nyc. hopefully will have saved up enough and find an apt by the beginning of june. things are getting busy with the company i've been doing contract work for - art zulu- so i figured now's the time to head up there. i'm going to continue doing other freelance too and will hopefully find more work once i'm up there. haven't had much time to miss florida, at least it's warm up here, plus the day before i drove up here my mom called to say they had to put my cat to sleep, meling.

its sad being here and expecting her grumpy self to be here. the month before i moved we had been talking about how funny it will be when she meets my other cat, elliot, cuz they're both fat, scaredy cats. it was just so sudden since she wasn't even that old. my eyes tear up every time i see her toys laying around still or go into the room she always slept in. it sucks so bad.

on a lighter night i'm trying to make more time for doing side and personal projects. i get so caught up in doing work for other people i never get to do anything for myself. so while i'm here and with nothing really to do i wanna start spending time each day working on some personal pieces.... guess that's all for now!

new stuff!!!!

hi! i've been super busy lately. i guess i should say first that i am no longer a full time employee for david & goliath. it was a tough decision but after all that i have been through with the surgery and stuff i don't think it's best for me to go back there full time. i'll still hopefully do contract and freelance work for them tho. i have been concentrating on freelancing full time now and i've been getting a lot of work. i've been working steadily for a company called art zulu out of nyc for the past few months and it's been great. i've been doing everything from logos and label designs to sleepwear and more recently a high end couture line for a client i probably cant mention but it's pretty exciting! i also hope to move to nyc in the next few months if all goes least there it won't be as big a deal not being able to drive...

i've also been working on a children's book for a lady out of LA and have jsut been offered 3 more books! once again i have to keep the details vague but here are a few sneak peaks!: (it's a very diva/glam children's book)

other than that things are going great, just a lil stir crazy from staying home every day... any one wanna get a drink?!?

tote bags!!!

i was out and about in st. pete yesterday (walking of course, still not aloud to drive and i am supposed to go for a walk everyday...i usually don't) and i went into one of my favorite lil boutiques and low and behold they had some tote bags i designed! i snapped a few (blurry) photos with my phone and wanted to share!

they're cute! u can purchase them (i think) on david & goliath's website- ugh, still the ugliest web site ever but i've given up complaining about it. it looks like a big lots flier half the time... ah well. enjoy!

new work!!!!

Hi!!! since i have some time off recovering from my surgery (which went well by the way, i just have a narly scar now that's pretty sore as well as half my face still not having much feeling other than hurting from time to time...) so i decided to work on some personal projects lil by lil to keep the creative juices flowing. i've been doing patterns for hazlenut studios a lot so i posted some of the valentine's ones i have done. i'm also trying to work on getting some stuff up into my etsy store. i'm going to make some cute lil valentine cards and prints for people to buy and share with their special someone ;) hopefully it will all go well! i can only work about an hour at a time for right now till i get more energy back and stop with the constant headaches that never go away.... hope everyone is well!!!!
