So You Say You Were A 1980’s Indie Kid?

Have I mentioned lately that you should purchase the novel "Wivenhoe Park"? Because you really should. Just look at all the reviews! You don't need to take my word for it just because I did the cover and he's my husband. But, also, if you want to try a crack at winning on of three copies,… Continue reading So You Say You Were A 1980’s Indie Kid?

Sex, Drugs, and Cassette Tapes

My husband's novel is out! So go buy it here. Kindle edition is available on there, but since I did the artwork you probably want the real deal, don't you? Have fun guessing which character is based on me, and I can give you a hint: I'm not the goth. Sure I'm a grown-up goth… Continue reading Sex, Drugs, and Cassette Tapes

Books on Deck: Beauty, Art, and an Aristocrat

More books on deck of wealthy, stylish people and crazy actresses of Hollywood's golden age. Are you surprised? This book coming out is like Christmas and my birthday combined. I had always wished for Karl to have a newsletter, and this is as close as it gets. No photos, sadly, but still has fun quotes.… Continue reading Books on Deck: Beauty, Art, and an Aristocrat

And, you wouldn't believe how… Continue reading Chic, and Somewhat Literate

Summertime Snaps

In a summer funk, but still trying to do something... Space girl in a cup dress of sorts. My fashion illustration students were totally weirded out... Also! Framed and Unframed… Continue reading Summertime Snaps

My Book Design for Ben Vendetta

Welp, the book cover I designed for my husband, Ben Vendetta, has been chosen. It takes place in 1985 and has a lot of music references throughout during that period. He wanted something that looked a bit post-punk, and I included some hints to Spacemen 3 and Essex University in the design... It is being… Continue reading My Book Design for Ben Vendetta

Shoes*Socialites*Patrons*Gluttony: My Book List

Here are a list of some books I've enjoyed over the past year (there were plenty I didn't care for) and thought they'd make good gifts for anyone interested in culture, art, vapid socialites, decor, history, and so forth. The Louboutin monograph. Jesus! It's huge, and covers all of his collections. It has a photo… Continue reading Shoes*Socialites*Patrons*Gluttony: My Book List
