Seymour Magazine: Play by Play

Jan Barack is a hooping ninja. Delightfully, one that writes about it. Here is a post by Seymour Magazine with Jan's writing and my illustrations about getting tangled up in the twirling motion.
I hope you enjoy.

More about Jan here.

More sketches for the piece.

Fall Settling In

Fall has been my favorite season since I can remember. But this year as fall settles down I am yearning for more sun, more rainy hot summer days and warm walks on the Williamsburg bridge. The ice cream runs have not stopped....yet.

Brooklyn Betrothed Anniverary Party: Lemons and Lace

Hello and Happy Winter Solstice!
Here is a summery post to warm up the chill in the air. This past July the Brooklyn Betrothed ladies and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at The Green Building in Carol Gardens. Delicious catering by Dish Food and Events, signature cocktails served by Smith and Vine and By Brooklyn. Lu Lu’s Confections and Haute So Sweet created sugary treats, and Whisk kept the dance party hydrated all night with fashionable, flavored water drinks. The rustic space was transformed by Rebecca Shepherd into a summer garden, Patina Rentals furnished the space with vintage nooks (and a croquette set) and Blackbird Theatrical Services added to the atmosphere with up-lighting and I created the paper details, invitations and hand painted sign work to complete the look. To add to the glamor, Anni Bruno did an amazing job assembling, styling and staffing a beauty bar in the speak easy lounge. Cheers and enjoy!

Thank you to everyone that came out, and cheers to my Brooklyn Betrothed co-founders, a group of amazingly talented ladies. This first year was amazing, I look forward to the next one!

Brooklyn Betrothed Feature in Brooklyn Magazine

Recently, Brooklyn Betrothed was asked to create a wedding feature for Brooklyn Magazine based on what our ideal wedding would be, a total thrill! We choose the Brooklyn Grange for the setting, a beautiful roof top farm in the Nary Yard. The Skyline view was staggering. I will be posting more details about our shoot and the different groups we worked with including, Patina Rentals, and Parker Red, as well as sprinkle in some of Kristina Hill‘s images of behind the scenes. Enjoy!

Guess in Greenpoint

Lately I have teamed up with Aimee Hunter of Guess in Greenpoint and Erica Schwartz to create custom paper designs to complement Aimee's scrumptious underground dinner parties. These parties are everything I love, a night of relaxed dinning with amazing food, wine, mingling and satiating conversations. You can follow Aimee's dinner parties here or like on facebook to see what she has in store for the next one. I hope to see you there!

Enjoy some images from the Autumn Feast, Warming from Within.
