the sarah project: hardly working

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

For this week’s edition of The Sarah Project I was transformed into a construction worker complete with a paper bag toolbelt, hard hat and beer gut (no offense intended for you fit construction workers). Not much of a story here, just a silly outfit.


world cup weekend

Monday, June 14th, 2010

My weekend was stuffed with World Cup festivities. On Saturday I was decked out in USA gear from head to toe including my red, white and blue fingernails. I headed to Dupont Circle for an outdoor showing of the USA vs. England game which ended up being complete chaos and I couldn’t even see the screen. So mid-game I had to change locations, but was still able to catch the USA goal. It was amazing being amongst so many soccer/USA fans—great energy. I’m looking forward to the rest of the tournament. Go U-S-A!

Be sure to check out some great artwork created for the World Cup by W+K for ESPN and Nike.

the sarah project: indiana hanks

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

I’m officially declaring Wednesday “The Sarah Project” day, well at least here on fancy seeing you here. Each week I’ll share my latest and greatest shoots and any other stories that go along with them. This week’s feature is Indiana Hanks where I come across a saber tooth tiger that attacks me, but in the end we become best friends.

p.s. Be sure to check out ZonaFoto‘s beautiful Jersey Shore polaroid series here.

free people bicycles

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

The summer display at the Free People store in Tysons Corner features about six custom bicycles hanging on the walls. All of the bikes are completely unique featuring different materials, colors & styles all very fun and whimsical. I’d love to ride around Bethesda on this green one—how cool are those flower wheels? I was only able to snap the picture above before I was told that I wasn’t allowed to take pictures. I found the two pictures below on the Free People blog and I am pretty sure there were in the store as well. If you get a chance to visit the store it always has a great display, very inspiring.

custom vans

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

This weekend I saw a great display of custom vans in the Vans store featuring artist Tony Price. I had ordered a custom pair of lucha vans (shown above) from Tony a little over a year ago. It was a simple process; I gave him the lucha concept and some image references and let him run from there. My favorite part of the final product is the eyes on the back side of the shoes. AND let me just say that the person that I gifted these rad shoes to was in love with them. Tony has a great illustration style and was a real pleasure to work with.

Check out more of Tony’s custom shoe work here and order your very own pair here.

Other custom shoe artists featured: Kyozo Kicks, timrobot & TKDeal

little artist

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Yep that’s little me. Having my first art sale at 4 years old. Story goes that a Picasso painting sold for $4 million and I immediately decided that I wanted and could make money from my artwork. So low and behold I immediately set up a little stand in front of my house. I must say I was quite resourceful for a 4 yr old. To this day I’m still selling my artwork. So I guess I am saying that I was made for this. Art is my life. Period. End of story.

p.s. Thanks for all the fabulous suggestions for The Sarah Project. I’ll be posting new images real soon.

the sarah project

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

This is a small selection of images from a silly project i’ve been doing at work; The Sarah Project. Every day at around 3 i have a mini photoshoot at my desk using props and stuff that i’ve gathered from around the office. I’m hoping to keep this up for a year and maybe even start a website for it. It’s actually quite amusing and fun, although some might think I’m a total nut. I think one of my favorite and most innovative uses of a prop is the poster tube turned into a peg arm for my pirate series. FYI, I’m taking character requests if you have any suggestions.

Views of the Bungalow Hotel which is the latest design project by 9 by design. It has some of their signature touches; commissioned pieces by Ann Carrington and those beautiful type light boxes. I love the way everything came together! View more pictures here.
