I have been in the cave all day working on an invitation to a huge, highly anticipated annual summer party and I think I’m going to need a few hours of swim time tomorrow to bring me back to real life. A few weeks ago, Moonpie and I went to Emma Long Park in northwest Austin and it was a dream. I took a crappy photo with my phone but it disappeared into the nether regions of my memory card so here’s someone else’s photo for your viewing pleasure:
you totes need to go swim here. emma long park, austin, texas.
Anyway, here’s a preview of the invitation i’m working on, I’ll release the whole image after the party:
Speaking of invitations, I am totally available to put together an invitation|save the date card|thank you card for your next shindig. Below is an invitation I put together for the newly minted married couple Adrienne and Kenneth (of Black Bone Child). They are some of the sweetest people to grace the planet and I couldn’t be happier for them. Give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why, yes, I also design wedding invitations!

first and foremost i’d like to wish barbarella video dance club a very happy 1 year anniversary. in such a short span of time, they have become a premiere place to see, be seen, enjoy a volume of music new and old, and get your dance on. they’ve also moved into the much-larger space next door for the ever-growing nightly crowd of revelers.
barbarella’s birthday bash, which takes place this sunday, will be the debut of their new shirts – designed by yours truly! it’s a revamp of jane fonda’s barbarella and you can see it’s pop art incarnation below:
i have to admit, i indulged in a little self-gifting this holiday season with an adorable new diana mini lomography camera. i can’t wait till it gets here! i’m already planning to take photos for leatherbag, mike and the moonpies and frank smith with it. so while my digital nikon is getting the lens repaired, i’ll only have my glorious little film cameras with me.
and as a result of the influx of cameras in my collection, i have made a new year’s resolution to post more personal photos on here so you lovely readers can get a glimpse into my hectic little world.
one last thing is the finalized tshirt design for dallas based pop band spookeasy. some of you may remember album artwork i did for them a few months ago. now they have a fun zorro-lion shirt to add to their merch.
