Dublin-based film critic, John Maguire, sums up this amazing show best by saying, “Taming Light is a group exhibition of new painting, photography and illustration paying tribute to one of the pre-eminent filmmakers of the 20th Century, Stanley Kubrick.” Showing at the Light House Cinema in Dublin from October 1st-31st, the exhibition is organized on a not-for-profit basis and admission is free.
I am really excited about this show (my piece HERE), I wish I could jet to Dublin right now to see it in person! Stop by if you’re lucky enough to live in the area, or view all the art on the brand new site HERE. Below is my favorite piece from the show, by the incredibly talented painter, Fransis Matthews. It makes my eyes pop and my brain buzz:

Editorial rejected sketches.
Your daily dose of rejected sketches.
I have a large stack of various drawings and sketches that I have saved throughout the years (I have a small problem with collecting things).. Occasionally they’ll be made into finished paintings, but some never see the light of day.
For the next couple of weeks I’ll be stuck indoors working on a painting, so I thought it might be a good time to post a few of these little guys.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: I had an AMAZING time at Coach during Fashion’s Night Out last Thursday! It was also fun to see & meet some of my favorite fashion bloggers (Keiko Lynn, Clothes Horse, Coquette, nitro:licious, etc), who were also guests of Coach for the night.
Read the long version of my night HERE.
Below are a few pictures from the event, then a few of the 10 min bags I worked on, and finally the bag I did for Coach’s archive.

A huge thank you! for everyone who came out to see me at Coach and supporting Fashion’s Night Out Thursday night. I had so much fun!
More pics coming soon, but until then have a great weekend!
As part of New York Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out, I’m very excited to announce that I will be a special guest of Coach at their Madison Avenue flagship store TONIGHT!
Along with the amazingly talented graffiti artist Pesu, I will be in store creating completely customized artwork on Coach’s limited edition canvas totes from 7pm-10pm. If you will be in the NY area, please join us for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres to help celebrate fashion, art and the spirit of New York!
