It's definitely fall, one of the best times for designers to showcase pieces they have been working on. I had the great pleasure of attending my friend Amy's Appus Design fall show. Let me tell you so much gorgeousness for my eyes to feast upon and I took some pictures to share with you. :) appusdesign.blogspot.com or appusdesign.com

I haven't been thinking about art for myself that isn't dessert or breakfast related besides my stuff for my printmaking class but that was mostly dessert too. I'm working on a little thing right now about cake batter... and my neopolitan scarf is coming along nicely.
I can't wait to use color on this... it should be exciting... I can't seem to figure out what to send my art pen pal yet... I think I will send him sketches.

So I've been inspired but also feeling a little poor. I wanted to order all this Dessert Food Jewelry online but I don't have the money to throw out. Designing with my friend Amy, we came up with some cute creations. I made a Ribbon Holic inspired charm for a necklace, a cupcake charm, and a cupcake ring.
I'm also working on some painting but with little luck. I really need to put a sketchbook in my purse to save all the drawings i do instead of putting them on random pieces of paper.
I'm working on my first mostly successful knitted work. A extra wide scarf. It's very plain right now but I'm adding embellishments.
Life is so crazy. I'm nervous about all the things that are approaching but I need to move with my art.

This is a hat I made recently.
One of the skirts I made to wear to an anime convention.
The other skirt and one of the bows I made for the convention.
One of the skirts I'm working on.
So much work to be done. I'm looking to do some printing on t-shirts in the next couple weeks... Hopefully to sell but also looking to barter for the things I covet most like food jewelry.... and evening gowns.. well I can make my own evening gowns....

My book that I was writing and illustrating is finished and I did some small things to make the time go somewhat. I don't want to feel like I'm slacking with my work. I should make a summer sketchbook.

My brother performed last night with his friends but I was too excited to take any pictures... I was so proud of him... This has me ready to design a series specifically for b-boys. It made me sad a little bit that some of the footwork they were doing wasn't as appreciated as I feel it should have been because usually the crowd is looking for freezes and just breakin' not the dancing. Sigh. But they were so awesome. Groove CREW!
This is from the Appus Design Home Show!!
This is the traditional Korean Fan Dancing from last night.

(Work in Progress, Diva)
So I love hip-hop. There is no clear definition of what hip-hop means to me but I might be able to try and explain it with this new series I'm working on,... I think I want some realism in it too. Animated but also real. Seeing my brother and his friends breaking and bboying/bgirling clinched the idea. I used be really into learning graf writing so I want to incorporate some of that... Also, since my dad used to dj, it would be nice to put that in too. This is going to be fun. So much to plan and sketch out,... maybe I'll make some garments to compliment the paintings.
I was so glad to be this close to the roots... I learned the hard way that my phone sucks for taking pictures at night... lol... But at least I was like 1-2 people away from the stage.. But I missed my brother dancing during performance... meh. He was dancing during Immortal Technique's performance, which I did get to see. I think I want to use the move he did in a painting. It was a spin on his elbow, a move I had not previously seen him do before. So going to the show and seeing that was even better than being in front for The Roots.
I went to some clubs this weekend when Dj Soulstar was spinning.. It was definitely good times. I had not seen digital turntables before then. Yesterday, I saw the original kind of turntables and it was a completely different feel besides the fact that the other dj who I think is BBoy Sean John was playing older styles of music. Sean John was playing a strictly bboy style, I'm pretty sure I heard some stuff playing in the Battle of the Year listings though... hmmm...
