WHERE HAVE I BEEN!
Greetings from Brooklyn, Today was a sunny 60 degree day and boy am I happy to be alive. Winters are hard on a sunshine gal like me. I need to either stay uber distracted, embark on a new endeavor or leave the cold for a while. Generally when it's so cold that one has to make sure they have 2 pairs of wool socks on I get depressed and don't feel like dealing with anyone or going anywhere. I know you're probably thinking 'boo hoo', 'poor you', 'suck it up' or even 'why the hell do you live in New York?' Well I live in New York because it's amazing...duh and encourages me to get my act together and make it so that in Feb 2010 I'm writing this post from somewhere tropical drinking enough coconut water to give a paraplegic the runs. And despite my overall disdain for temperatures below 45 degrees I've managed to give my site a face-lift, get my portfolio together, research and visit local manufacturing facilities, contact over 120 stores regarding wholesale and eat off less than $40 a week, how's that for productive! I came to two conclusions over the shitty holiday season and January. #1 Being broke and cold suck (it seems I have to learn this one every few years) #2 Complaining about being broke and cold sucks even more. So I've got my act together and I'm going to slow down on the making of clothing and accessories because right now, in this economy that's a tedious labor of love. Don't worry I'll still be making clothing and accessories but at a slower pace. Right now I'm focused on freelance work and gallery exhibitions. With that being said, let me tell you about my 2 for 1. My portfolio is currently floating around Publicis NY (only one of the largest ad agencies world wide, cross your fingers) and I'll be doing an in-office installation at Publicis (tentatively) next week! Yay, two birds one stone.I'll keep ya'll posted, In the mean time a gal's gotta eat, so I'm offering recession pricing for all you indie makers and artists on web design and graphic design services.
