Somehow (tip from skateboarding boyfriend) , ended up trying get hired at Enjoi (skateboard company). I like skateboards, I like illustration, and I like screen printing. Okay. Just for the thrill I sent a link to my portfolio site and a cover letter. To my fashion school background having surprise, I heard back. Did some test graphics. Eventually got a “thank you” email. Lightly bummed out, but mostly glad that Skateboard people saw something in my work. Let me just say, I have been bit by some sort of bug because…I’m now obsessed with pursuing skateboard graphics. This was one of the boards I did. P.S. Enjoi, please don’t sue me for this post. Maybe I should have put a little black box over your Logo? Maybe a smiley face? Snake Girl, hiss hiss hiss

"Favorite Jacket" A trend I truly adore right now is looking as if your not wearing pants. Extra long tops and itty bitty shorts. However, I got to thinking about how trends always get super extreme towards the end of their run. Feeling inspired by that thought, was when I drew this lady (sans bottoms). Are we on our way to actually not wearing pants at all? Probably not, but if we were… (notice the fine detailed pencil work on the lady parts, haha!)

    Working at a bookstore has it’s perks, working at L.A.s only Art and design bookstore (which also happens to be independently run) is more than perky. It basically gives me a lady boner. Hennessey + Ingalls allows me to order gems like this and take pictures of it. “Design Behind Desire” is a collection of High End goodies that make us put our O faces on. Sex toys that resemble fine Chinese ceramics, phallic platforms, this book has it all. All rolled into a contemporary and esthetically pleasing coffee table book. If you’ve got $95 in your wallet, in your account, under your mattress…do it.
