One final

One of my final projects for the end of the first quarter of my textile design classes was to design a group of high end rugs based on three sections of the painting "Mural" by Julie Mehretu. Multi media work of gouache and computer renderings. Allover and half drop prints.

Border (3)

Remember my border design? I took my hand drawing to Adobe Illustrator and created a vector file. The top image is a part of the whole border, the bottom is a companion piece that works with the original design, there are endless designs you can create.

Sunday lunch

My very personal chef made us a very unique Sunday lunch. Tuna tartar, seared tuna, sweep potato chips, mango chutney and some grilled green figs. All the goodies made at home by Uri.

Ekaterina Koroleva

Amazing artist Ekaterina Koroleva. I've found her work while looking for an illustrator for a graphic design job I was working on.

Paper and color

Playing with paper and water colors. My original attempt was with tissue paper, I loaded too much color and they all ripped when I unfolded them. I used regular copy paper, they don't absorb the colors very well, but if you're persistent it works. Pretty addictive.


Top two collages by Rosemarie Auberson and the rest by Alison Worman.

I wish

How I wish I could just fly to NY and join this class, maybe next time.

Border (2)

Border repeat, hand painted with water colors and coordinating fabric design. Same colors and feel, same family. It's amazing how comfortable I am with the computer, I literally think computer. I envision and see it better on the computer, changes, additions, play and so on.

Border (1)

Second attempt to paint with water colors, it's a little better than the first time, but still not there. I used what I've found on my walk and tried to capture it's beauty. This will be a repeat of the border design for my textile design class, I envision it as an embroidery rather than print.

Thank you

Last project

My last project for one of my textile design classes is designing borders. I don't have a clue of what to create, when I went on my daily walk today I decided to pick up some flowers and leaves and use their shapes and colors to create my project.

The Renegade Craft Fair (RCF) is a curated indie-craft marketplace showcasing the brightest talents in contemporary craft and design. The Los Angeles fair was this weekend at the Los Angeles State Historic Park and had more than 250 makers of jewelry, custom clothing, pottery, perfume, textiles, original artwork and more. It was interesting to see them all and how many talented makers there are out there.
