SpAcE CAse !

17 Jul

I’m currently working on the TV show “Eastbound & Down” ! I was asked by my supervisors to make an insulated case to protect the magazines from the heat of the sun .

This is what I call a space blanket !

This is a film magazine . It holds 1,000 feet of 35 millimeter film !

We had to measure the magazine with Alisha’s phone charger because we didn’t have a soft measuring tape . (in one week we will have a house with all of our supplies ! and a read studio ! )

Making a pattern .

Alisha and her fancy gold shoes .

Sewing time . . .

This is the final product ! yeah !

Ta da ! Our new house will be ready next week so our Kickstarter loves will be getting fresh packages real soon !

Ahhhhh things are super crazy around here. Kicking out kickstarter goodies, working at new fun jobs and house hunting. (If anyone knows of a 3 bedroom in Wilmington, please let us know!!)

I’m back in sunny Wilmington! (yay) I’m currently crashing at the lovely  I LIKE IT HERE CLUB studio.

Here is an example of one of the many nutritious and delicious breakfasts served at  I LIKE IT HERE CLUB  .

I like it here club and rubyassata joined forces for a friend’s birthday surprise.

We made her leather earrings!

Things are moving fast around here. SoooooooOOOOO much to come in the next couple months. Did I mention how much I love North Carolina and how happy I am to be back? Well, I am.

7.5.11 grilled TUNA spinach sallad
Lots of amazing dinners and a little kickstarter screen printing.

All of this went into . . .

7. 3. 11- poor kids SARDINE pasta.

Along, with sardines the pasta was arranged with all the goodies from the above picture.

This was my first idea for the kickstarter canvas print. I did it a while back.

6. 30. 11 slappy white’s two bean CHILI

The corn, tomatoes, peppers and onions were roasted on the grill before turning into magic chili.

Ohhh look at that new monogramed NORTH CAROLINA field notes!!! Get your own here.

This is the the start of the the KS print on canvas. I don’t think it’s quite finished yet. . .

Tomatoes from the farmers market.

7. 7. 11 hedley lamarr VEGETABLE wrap

Green beans count as protein, right? Regardless, it was stupid good.

Sooooo. . . still not satisfied with where my other KS prints were going, I decided to do another print.

I had to used student grade emulsion for the new print which is good and bad.

The new print is yet another cityscape but with clothes lines. I’m liking the way things are looking.

I promise ALL kickstarter rewards will be done before summer ends!!!!!

I’m finally REALLY headed back to Wilmington today to be reunited with Courtney and my old life.

Updates to follow. . .

 

PiZZa RAMpage!!!

1 Jul

Yesterday morning I was lucky enough to catch an episode of Good Eats with Alton Brown making his own grilled pizza on a BBQ grill. I felt inspired.

Our pizza had mozzarella, sweet taylor pears, prosciutto, onions, and arugula(not pictured.)

You can find the original recipe here.

I even made the dough.

Things got a little messy.

While the bread was rising, we took a brake to draw beer bottles in the left handed sketchbook.

Then, things were looking up.

Alton used a gas grill. All we had was a charcoal grill.

First crust was a litte abstract.

well. . .

Finished product not so great looking. . . BUT the flavors were amazing. The dough maybe should have cooked longer?

The next pizza was cooked in the oven. The safer choice.

I’m still haven’t completely made it back to Wilmington. I did set up new sewing machine in wilmington (thanks kickstarter!)!!!!!

I can’t wait to finish all the kickstarter rewards and sew for the trunk show- oh, and see Courtney everyday!

P.S.- New life goal is to have a chalkboard refrigerator.
