Lots of exciting things going on over here in New Orleans – including a brief visit from a couple of my favorite ladies from back home. I’m in the process of getting a bunch of awesome baby products together for a mommy tradeshow in May. I’m super excited to have the cards below for sale at ZukaBaby on Magazine Street very soon!
The cards will be available in a couple of different color schemes – for boys and girls, and also gender neutral.
I also just recently finished a new logo for Let It Be Midwifery on the North Shore, here in the New Orleans area. I loved the owner’s idea of tying beauty and water and birth all together for this piece with a little New Orleans fleur de lis to tie it all together.
Outside of working on some exciting projects, I’ve been online-stalking a large-scale light show that is finally up and running. You may have heard of it, but if not, The Bay Lights installation on the East Bay Bridge (between San Francisco and Oakland) went live on March 5. This light installation was created by artist Leo Villareal and will be on view at night for several hours at a time for two years. I hope to make it out west to see for myself!
I had a great excuse to hit up the Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel downtown this past weekend and fell in love with the murals in the dimly-lit vintage bar. My friend Melissa poses in front of one mural below:
In other exciting art news, I’m planning to head down to the Angela King Gallery on Royal Street to check out the Peter Max pieces on view this month. I’ll report back after I’ve been! Peter Max is a personal favorite for his incredibly unique and detailed music posters in the 1960s (think Yellow Submarine).
I’ll leave you with an image I love that I snapped after a dinner party recently. I think, by now, you all know I love deviant art and beautiful textures.
