Two-sided coin...

Hello Lovelies!

So, I'm a little late with the post this week because I went to New York to see the Tim Burton retrospective at MoMA. Wow. I was not disappointed. For a fan like myself, to see all those sketches and notes and original movie props was pretty amazing. Well worth the trip if you're close. They had this really cute balloon outside the exhibit so I took a pic:


I also stumbled across the neatest restaurant quite by accident while there. The Jekyll & Hyde Club apparently opened in 1931 and it's full of old artifacts and neat quirky decor. I didn't eat there (and I'm kicking myself), but I did take a few pictures. I will go back... And I will be adding some neat NY pics to the shop shortly.


And speaking of Jekyll & Hyde, my large painting is finally complete! I of course added my final touches of glitter and metallic paint to give it a three dimensional quality (and because I can't seem to stop falling in love with glitter). Here are some shots:


I posted sketches for my new product stickers awhile back and they are finally done and ordered! Take a look. These will be on your order if you place one. I think they're pretty cute.


I have found yet another great design firm with some clean, modern work. Oh, and I looove their logo. Ketchup & Mustard does a little bit of everything; illustration, type design, regular old design and it's all a lot cool. Take a gander at those coasters! I want one of each if I have to fly to the Czech Republic to get them... seriously.


That is all for now my Lovelies...

Until next time: unpleasant dreams.

I want to visit that Jekyll and Hyde restaurant. Like the painting...not sure how I'd feel about the glitter tho....i'm not usually a glitter person but love your work so maybe, in this instance, it belongs. The stickers and very cute.....you could do lots of variations on that design...lovin the lines in it...

that Tim Burton show looks really awesome!!! So lucky you got to go!!

I am also intrigued by the Jekyll and Hyde restaurant.. I wonder if some of the food is really really yummy, and the other half is horrible? ;)
