Pun-Filled Desserts

Monday, December 31, 2007 at 4:22 PM

I'm such a dork that I design my cakes in Adobe Illustrator before I make them. My roomates and I are having a crazy par-tay to ring in the new year, so I decided to make a delicious cake riddled with design.

I really wanted to make a CMYKake (thats the pun, see?) but I don't have the appropriate food coloring. And I really want to make that special. MMM, Printer based cakes.

Cake tommorow! (If it looks good) Have a happy new year everyone!

Fool's Photoshop

(click for a closer look)

This is a poster for the upcoming crap fest movie Fool's Gold starring Matthew McConaugay and one of the Anorexic Twins from the Insider. I mean Kate Hudson. What the fuck is going on with her legs? Did they hold a high school photoshop contest? It looks like they used Dakota Fanning's body for this. Gross.

Why arent their more portraits of me, I always say.

This girl I know did a painting of me in high school. It's pretty awesome, huh?
Once I remember her name (It was Sarah something) I'll link to her website, if it exists.

PS: Merry Christmas Eve All!

Crazy Weekend of Gift Making

Sunday, December 23, 2007 at 11:45 AM

So I have approximately 13 gifts to give. And this year, for some god forsaken reason, I told myself I wasn't going to buy anything, and that I was going to make everything. I have presents to make for (and I'm thinking out loud here):
  1. My mother
  2. My father,
  3. My sister
  4. My brother
  5. My
  6. four
  7. (count 'em
  8. four) roommates
  9. My friends Carly
  10. Lizzy
  11. and Laura...
...as well as handmade cards for them and 4 more people. That brings our grand total of things to 26 items. Did I mention I have a cold? Did I also mention I haven't finished anything? Its going to be like college all over again. Yum.

PS. This means at least 11 posts next week with the results. Stay tuned!

What the fuck HAVE you done?

Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 1:07 PM
I was looking at FFFFound today and this amazingly nice picture asked me a question:

It's a question I ask myself all the time. I'm hoping I can answer that with something that isn't so bad at some point. I can say that I have done art that still is currently technically in the White House. I can say that my designs are in the Pentagon (they really, are, isn't that cool as hell?) all I have left to design for is the Capitol Building and I have all the buildings where important people are.

But still, people don't know my name. I yearn for Joe Lamour brand recognition. And in the coming months, I hope to work towards that goal. "How the fuck do you plan to do that?" Well, I'll tell you, and stop cursing, it's unbecoming of a lady. I'm relaunching my website, and you'll see my website design sketches, artwork for coming shows, and lots of other cool shiiite. Yeah, I just used the term shiiite. I'm not apologizing.

Visual AIDS - A Postcard

Tuesday, December 18, 2007 at 2:06 PM
Rain, 2007, Mixed Media
(Pastel, Charcoal, Brass, Colored Pencil, Collage)

About a month ago I participated in Visual AIDS's Postcards from the Edge.

"Famous in the art world as the most exciting and affordable way to build a collection of work by internationally renowned artists, as well as young and emerging artists, all works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists signatures are a secret till after the purchase.

Visual AIDS strives to increase public awareness of AIDS through the visual arts, creating programs of exhibitions, events and publications, and working in partnership with artists, galleries, museums and AIDS organizations.

By mobilizing the visual arts communities, Visual AIDS raises money to provide direct services to artists living with HIV/AIDS."

Postcards by Kiki Smith, Yoko Ono, (and me! as well as my beautiful and talented friend Carin Johnson) were in the show at James Cohan Gallery in NYC.

I'm only showing you now, because it was a secret previously, on the off off off off hand chance someone saw this before it was (hopefully) purchased. I like it. I love the dimensionality of a drawing in a diorama format. Its a good thing.

The Prodigal Poster

Thursday, December 6, 2007 at 3:58 PM
My apologies, guys, as I haven't posted anything "in a minute" which means in a long time now... or so the kids say. My coworker found this picture in our gallery show photos folder....
The guy in the bottom left freaks me the hell out.

Any ideas as to who the hell these people are?
