    This past Friday, I went with my best friend Adrienne to New York City’s flower district. I don’t know how it took me a full 9 years of living in the city before experiencing the morning flower rush. We got there bright and early, around 8:45 am, but still later than their 5 am open time for the trade. It […]

    It’s been 2.5 months since we returned from our Japan trip. It’s about time I wrote about this rich cultural experience! One thing that I really wanted to take advantage of while I was there, was to meet up with Japanese illustrators/artists that I admire. I reached out to a few illustrators before we left New York. To my surprise, […]

    Before I left for Japan,  I completed a quick-turn-around job illustrating a sign for a wedding. Sam, the bride, was a previous co-worker of mine at American Eagle. I was so humbled when she asked me to illustrate something for her big day! Sam was looking for an illustrated sign that would sit on the favor table and would tie […]

    Although my last name says otherwise, I am definitely Irish.  I loathe the public drunkeness that seems to go hand-in-hand with St. Patrick’s day, but I look forward to this day every year! Everyone is in a good mood (whether alcohol induced or not), and the sun seems to always be shining. So, in honor of this great day, I […]

    Last Tuesday, I went to the day-judging of the Westminster Kennel Club at Piers 92 and 94. I made the journey from Williamsburg to midtown west and arrived to the piers around 10 am. The judging had already started at 8:30am, so these dogs, groomers, and handlers had  already been up for several hours! The working, sporting, and terrier breeds […]
