Its haunted house time, I made a giant mouth for the kids at ps41 to walk through (I'm glad its off the living room floor) They walked into an asophagus, through a long animated spiral
I was asked to art direct a fun project for Prestone Press to showcase this new printing technique that uses 3D raised transparent inkjets. It was a commercial project and well, it just won a SAPPI award for Prestone Press! The Sappi award is regarded as the worlds most respected accolade of excellence and innovation in printed communications. Prestone Press and Rob Adler are the most innovative in their field and I'm proud to have been part of this creative project! http://www.prestoneprinting.com/sappi2015/

Designing fun new prints for Madame Butterfly at the Met... based on and inspired by traditional Japanese woodblock designs. For long skinny scarves...
I fell in love with Jelly making these Jelly shots for my friend Laurie Olinder's show. They're filled with delicious rum and Curacao and inspired by Laurie's beautiful hanging paintings called ‘Paper Falls' on show now at the Phatory gallery 618 East 9th street. Fun and yum! I think I'll be making more jelly shots in all shapes, flavors and styles!
I'm hoping to print up these shimmering silk scroll designs into satin wearable oblongs. They come from watercolors I did for the Met Opera a couple of months ago and were put aside as too expensive but they've been beckoning me back. The inspiration comes from a mix of Belle Époque Paris and Raoul Dufy meet in Maxim's. I'm working out some more bright and saturated color combinations. Fingers crossed they go to print. They’d look great on cotton too.
I just painted this fabulous garden wheel barrow bench for an auction to raise funds for the Sylvia Center Foundation. Just adding the final touches before its varnished. I can imagine silk screening these painted butterflies, if anyone's interested in one (or some wallpaper! - I can make another! The Sylvia Center http://sylviacenter.org was founded by the awesome Liz Neumark in memory of her daughter Sylvia and inspires children to eat well by providing hands-on experiences with growing and cooking healthy food on their farm and in the kitchen.
