We finally closed on our apartment this week!!!! YES!!!! It's such a relief for both of us as we are practically at the end of our tether both mentally and physically.
The movers come on Sunday, so we can relax tomorrow and prep for the move. I really can’t believe it’s finally here, also on the celebratory note Matthew’s green card was approved so BIG-UP and congrats to Matthew. I can’t wait to see them both next week in SF, we are taking some time off to celebrate the move and the good old 4th of July!
Have a groooOOOOovy weekend.

Thanks to Jenny & Elle at Checkinit (http://www.checkinit.com/) I got a head start on my new Spring '07 group. The girls put together some wicked tearsheets and trends which we pulled together into a rough mood board...
I'm pretty confident this will be a fun group, and I'm looking forward to seeing the print I bought as a lining with some cool plastic chain details.
Have a groovy evening!

unfortunately we did not close today, I don't have much to say about that it's the same old story...
I thought I would try and think of sunnier days at the beach, like last sunday for instance...B' eautiful!!!
Have a good evening and try to avoid the rain...

What a day, we had a new intern start today and our lawyers have been keeping us busy with requests and emails regarding the closing of our apartment on Thursday. I hardly have the energy to say, YES!!! It's been such a long road to closing but I'm sure by the weekend it will be all worth it.
Good news yesterday was I received our actual green cards in the post, so it's now 100% official no more visas, we're full time permanent residents of the USA!!!
I received these two fabulous shots of Byron's new ride(s) Va, Va, Va VOOM!!!
Have a great evening!

Lot's going on today with work and with the imminent closure on our apartment. I did my best to remain calm, if that's the word...
I worked up a fun print for our Eco-bags group and started work on a mysterious half-octopus half woman design I need to work in the extra legs/arms but I like how it's shaping up...
Have a relaxing evening!

Big-UP the Checkinit girls Jenny & Elle, they sent me this example of their latest work for a Japanese magazine. I'm looking forward to seeing more and working with them on a Fall'07 project for Loop & Parcel.
I love how the illustration interacts with the photo shoot in the foreground...really wicked!
Have a spectacular evening!

My little brother took part in a 24-Mountain bike race over the weekend (http://www.twenty4sports.com/twenty4/index.cfm?fuseaction=dspHome&advertisingType=B85D3500-1090-4B0E-8FF5-99F4AF692026). He managed to make it through the grueling 24hrs with a little help from his friends. Here's a shot of him, pre-race nerves must have been kicking in...
Have a jolly nice evening!

I hope you all had a great weekend? I started working on a little personal project today, it will be an illustrative exercise to get me into my own private world of project work. I would like it be be almost like a comic/blog of life in the city that I could use as a starting point for my illustration folio.
Anyway it's early days, this is the rough I'm working on for the front cover...
Have a good evening, I'm off to check out this exhibit tonight, (http://www.coolhunting.com/archives/2007/06/location.php)

Sorry I missed yesterdays blog, I couldn't let the sunshine go to waste and headed uptown to meet Bethzaira in Central park after work.
I have been working on some additional prints for my Eco-Bag group per the big bosses request. So here's what I have so far, I've tried to do something for everyone...

A sign of the times since yesterdays blast from the past, here's a fantastic shot of the latest edition to the lads.
Mike one of my good mates and one of the original lads from back the day recently became the first of us to multiply, well done Mike and Claire! We managed to visit the Dunne's on our recent trip to the UK, they have a beautiful home in North West London with a spectacular garden as you can see...
Have a beauti' ful evening!

I received this "blast from the past", ahhh dayz gone by...in a parcel today from Lou. Thanks for keeping this little diamond on the rough!!!
It made my day, it was taken just outside Pub on the corner of Camden Road Circa 1993, we were on our way to skate Cantelowes skatepark on a Sunday when we were approached by some fashionista looking Italiano's. Not sure why Dave got the luxurious women's Chanel jacket?!! It was published in Italian Vogue a month later...FIERCE!!!

We meet our broker this morning at our new apartment for a walk through to check off any construction issues that should be amended by the final walk through before closing.
It was really nice to refresh the memory and see our new home to be again! It feels like we have a blank canvas ready to decorate and model into our perfect (1st) home...So exciting!!!
Have a jolly nice weekend!
LOVE to ALL,
