I’ve been profiled… plus a few notes.

Integrated Memoirs (http://integratedmemoirs.wordpress.com) is a blog that chronicles interracial/intercultural relationships. I’ve been following for a while, and I rather enjoy it, considering that my family is multi-culti. Eliss, the blog writer and couple curator extraordinaire, recently interviewed me for her blog.

*I am gearing up for some summer shows/festivals. I recently did PopShop Cincinnati, which was a huge success. I really enjoyed the setup, the ambience and the music, and of course the sales. Great Job! I plan on attending as long they keep having these. Go here to see more photos of the event.

The weather is warm, time for some fun new colors!

Fun new materials I'm experimenting with
