Jungian or marbles in my mouth?
Part of a selection of story boards I created for a new print technique, the only one on the East coast and it's at Prestone Printing. The printer will pick out certain aspects and print them in shiny 3-D? trippy
The first cookbook ever written was by this man, Taillevent. He wrote down oral traditions, which had been passed down from chef to chef during the Middle Ages in Paris. In it he has recipes for peacock, stork, eagle, heron and violet and sage wine. I'm making the sage wine for tonight to have with duck (Lily's favorite). He suggests sprinkling some gold leaf in the drinks... This is part of my Paris story that's consuming me and my kitchen at the moment.
I had so much fun creating this kaleidoscopic design out of fruits, nuts and spices- Can you see it as a table cloth? hmmm
I've been working on a wonderful book collaboration with my nephew, Lollies from Heaven!
From New York to the streets of London where Ice KItchen is born! It comes out in London on July 4th! Its a tasty subject but we can't say much more
New blustery scarf designs for the Met Opera...
I'll be printing them on silk for the opening night of La Boheme at the Met in New York in Jan 2014
I hope you'll keep warm with these and wrap them around you this winter (I'm taking orders in December and totally immersed in chill till then! A wonderful suprise I'm working on with my nephew Cesar!
A romantic new scarf in the making
I've been away all summer and blogless... A wonderful holiday in Italy and London and lots of exciting news... I'm working on a fun new book (an icy one) to be published in Spring... I made a little animation for my friend Elena Lappin's new Book Trailer Trash venture (I'll post it) and created some delicious new pop recipes with my nephew for the sought-after Ice Kitchen carts in London. I'm designing a scarf for the Metropolitan Opera's upcoming production of La Boheme and another scarf to be decided, for the Royal Opera house in London! Here's a thumb nail sketch which I hope to develop into a scarf, full of Paris romance - 1830's style - with the classic story intertwined. I'll let you know when its finished... Lily a constant inspiration and taste tester for the new book.
A sneak peek into my new book. Very excited to be working on this over the summer.
A lesson in trying to paint in front of a tough audience!
I'm at the Metropolitan Museum of Art...
