I’m very excited for the 2012 Pantone color of the year; Tangerine Tango, a spirited energetic reddish orange. It’s much better than last year’s color honeysuckle. And if you’re a fan of Tangerine Tango be sure to check out the Pantone fashion color report for Spring 2012 which includes the fiery orange amongst complementary bright and neutral colors (shown in the second image.) I’m really digging the neutrals in the report, especially Margarita, Cockatoo and Driftwood.
Last night I made a run over to Mullen HQ to meet up with my friend Chris Brady. Chris, along with his helpful family, is the creator of The Lobstar. Each Lobstar comes with a personally screen printed box and certificate. I’m happy to say that I’m the proud owner of #93/200. As you can see from the photos below…the Lobstar looks fantastic. I love it.

Beautiful hand lettering from Mary Kate McDevitt.
The newest addition to the Gee Whiskers series—a cat-a-lope holiday card. It’s the puurrrrfect way to say happy holidays. These cards are screenprinted with three colors on Paper Source Eco White paper and blank on the inside. (Includes a French Paper kraft envelope.) Available for purchase in my shop individually or in a 5 pack.
Yesterday I took a trip to Baltimore to check out the type truck at Baltimore Print Studios. The type truck is completely adorable and frankly I’m a little jealous of Kyle. She gets to travel and print—a perfect combination if you ask me. First step was screenprinting a minty layer inside Baltimore Print Studios. Once that dried I letterpressed the hot pink type inside the type truck. See the final product in the second picture below. A beautiful print to remember the experience, mine’s already hanging on the fridge.
Saturday night consisted of going to the Fillmore in Silver Spring to see Chromeo and Mayer Hawthorne. I had been looking forward to the show for quite some time and I kept going back and forth on whether I should dress up for the concert. At the last minute I decided that I’d be sad if I didn’t. So I spent Saturday putting this twiggy costume together. It wasn’t that complicated. Luckily I found a dress that felt 60s in pattern and cut and I found an awesome photo guide of twiggy doing her eye makeup (shown below). The show was awesome, both Chromeo and Mayer Hawthorne were amazing and I got a few people that recognized my costume! Happy Halloween everyone!
