trying out a little video

testing out posting a little video today. follow me on Instagram for more regular video and
fun stuff

I was on press today with a split fountain job for my client Ashkahn. A split fountain is when you use two inks and let them blend on press to create a gradation of color.

Split fountain, when doing it for production purposes, takes a lot of patience and clean ups in the middle of the run. It's a labor intensive process. The result though, is a nice little piece of art. Each one of his cards is slightly different because the ink is never stable.

you can purchase here.

All a girl needs

I saw this on pinterest some time ago and wanted it so bad but could not trace it through the link. Thankfully, I just saw a clip from NYFW and Betsy Johnson wore it on the runway bow. Nice, soft tee by the way.

Have I told you how bad I want to letterpress this on a card? I'm so sad I didn't think of it.

Le Chop

This is what it feels like to chop all of your hair off. It's seriously fun. 

I can relate fully to the agonizing decision to do it which you should read here. It took me a few weeks to fully love it. In the second month I remembered a product from the 80's that has saved my life. Sebastian Molding Mud. If you've used it, I know you can smell it just thinking about it. And so here is my special mixture to taming the cotton frizz ball into something chic and fun:

1. Aveda humectant - they tell you just to use a little bit - I dig in with a blob.

2. Sebastian Molding Mud - same, a giant wad (make sure to press out all the little clumps in your hands so you don't end up with hair boogers)

3. After all that's in and I diffuse in various ways I dig into my husband's super pomade Layrite. He has to purchase it for me because it's in one of those "gentlemen only barber shops" I can't decide if that's totally cool or they're complete assholes but I like their stuff.

add a few bobbypins and hope for the best!

Garance, if you don't know her, is the bomb go check her out.

A good portrait

There is something so timeless, romantic, hopeful about a good portrait - to capture a moment in someone's life. Have you ever thought about that? That it lives that moment forever? It's silly, but I think it's amazing.

Michelle Williams is my only color photo here but I love this one. My husband told me I look like her with dark hair. I think it might be the nose - we've got that little turned up thing in common... I'll take it though she's a cutie.
