Repost from 2 Modern Design Talk! I don’t follow cycling and to be honest I don’t know much about Lance Armstrong. But this past Winter (I can finally say past because it’s Spring!) when I attended the press opening for the Shepard Fairey exhibit at the ICA Boston, something caught my eye. There in a […]

January 20th, 2009 · 5 Comments

Isabel Toledo! The Cuba-born American designer, who was impressed to see Michelle chose one of her designs for a fundraiser in Manhattan this past Fall, designed Michelle Obama’s lovely chartreuse/yellow dress and overcoat.

Hone your digital design skills now Bostonians, because as of January 23, 2009, you will have missed the opportunity to enter the 2009 Cut&Paste Tournament, where hundreds of artists create live (gulp!) on stage while a rowdy crowd stands by critically judging their talent. Ultimately it’s up to the panel of judges to decide your […]

homecoming partee!

November 17th, 2008 · Comments Off on homecoming partee!

The aftermath. We had our engagement/housewarming party this weekend, and it was a huge success. A great party requires a killer theme, spiked punch, balloons, a pinata, and of course plenty of great friends! Our theme? Homecoming! We served pigs in a blanket, popcorn, peanuts, and soft pretzels — foods most likely to be found […]
