Honey Boo Boo Junk Portrait by Jason Mecier!!!

My dear old friend and world renowned portrait collage artist – Jason Mecier – has a Honey Boo Boo obsession! So do a lot of people I know! Anyhoo, he has just done a wonderful portrait of her out of junk. Jason has shown his work all over the world and has immortalized Snoop Dog from Marijuana, Michael Jackson from pills, Tammy Faye from Nails and Nail Polish; and even me in beans & noodles!

Check out this great video he did on the making of Honey Boo Boo Portrait. And go to his site to see more of his wonderful creations! I heart him! You will too! oxo gd

Merc is Retro time to get busy!

Mercury is Retrograde until April 4th, but I’m quite enjoying this one! The main thing with merc retro, is it’s a good time to stay in & work, and that’s what I’m doing! After the success of the opening, and the month leading up to it, I had a little crash. It’s hard to work maniacally for a month plus, and then – nothing. I always take a few days or so to regroup after a big job, but have a hard time adjusting, cos I’m not used to leisure pursuits, and if Im not creatively busy, I get depressed… But luckily, after my 3 day Judge Judy marathon session, I’m back to work on my shoe collab with Terry de Havilland, and I am LOVING it! I’m starting to get to a point where instead of counting sheep, kaleidoscope images twirl around in my head over and over until I fall asleep. That always happens when I do visual things, they plague my brain, but in a good way! I’m starting to look at loads of things and think “Hmm that would look nice on shoes!” Ha Ha! Almost done with pair number 2, even starting to work on number 3 today!! This is a dream job! Life is good! more soon! oxo gd

I am woman hear me Roar!

Today is International Womans Day! Of course I’ll be celebrating my womanliness at my debut art show – Grande Dame Presents – Electric Crazyland – Private View Reception! I’m so excited for tonight (esp because I’ll be wearing my new shoes – eek!). Again it’s from 6 – 8 at Ketchum Pleon 31 – 45 Folgate street, right by Liverpool St Station & Spitalfields. Best time to show up is after 7, as it will be darker and the animated projections and lights will be at a much higher visibility! Hope to see you all there! I will be the blond in the black dress, with upswept hair and totally amazing shoes!! Can’t wait! oxo gd
