While in Savannah, I had a chance to finally meet the talented Emily McCarthy of Twist Paper- a fellow brand of the Whitney English Company-- as well as fellow redhead.
On time to work the next morning. Last week we honored one of our own with an after work celebration of Korean Fried Chicken (because we are ALWAYS hungry here at Tiffany's). Holy mackerel, it was scrumptious. Additionally, the little eatery in herald square served beer in clear, lit up mini kegs. I secretly wanted to make a run for it with one of them in tow.
A few weeks ago I headed, for the first time, down to Savannah to visit Katie J and Lee. Talk about a much needed break from the wintery awfulness of this year's January. I immediately fell in love with EVERYTHING there... so much character and personality in one small town. By the end of my stay, I had decided that godhelpme, I'm going to buy a home there. From listening to Diana sing her heart out on the piano at Vics to spicy bloody marys at mansion (an old funeral parlor transformed into a boutique hotel ), I was, and am, sold. Not to mention, two of the greatest people ever reside there, and one delicious little nugget of a pup, Nora Jean.
I've been chosen to once again help the Perlman Foundation with their invitations- working with them is a true delight. Above is one out of many options for their upcoming Spring gala. I used in this design option more of a graphic take on new york in the spring. I adore seeing those first pink buds in the city when things start to warm up just a touch and new yorkers become a little less cantankerous, and a lot more affable.
Commissioned by the lovely ladies at IVillage to create Valentine illustrations for a children's coloring book. Here are a few of my favorite so far.
I love this clip in which artist, Olek, knits a huge one-z for the wallstreet bull (located just blocks from my apartment) right before Christmas. In her words:
I started it with a bike and ended up with the Charging Bull as a Christmas gift to NYC and a tribute to the sculptor of the bull, Arturo di Modica, who in another guerrilla act, placed the bull on Wall Street in Christmas of 1987 as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people" following the 1987 Stock Market crash.Unfortunately the knitted gift was taken down almost immediately, but in light of the upcoming snowstorm (part deux) headed our way, I sort of wish he still had his bull-snuggie to see him through it.
First time to the city.... and a long overdue trip to visit my ladybird Katie. Can not wait for a southern weekend of delicious food and beautiful surroundings. Fingers crossed my flight makes it out during the current snowstorm we're once again experiencing
Little Ester and I are currently drafting up our resolutions as we speak.... and then promptly going to the bar for spicy bloodys upon completion... Here's to a great year, and a great NYE spent with friends and much prosecco and laughter
