Step into My Studio

Welcome #1 – to my thought process…
When I was barely green and fresh out of college I was lucky enough to work on an intimate five person design team for the first season of Pinky Dinky Doo.
I rarely pull out this old portfolio, but thought I’d show you a bit about what I’m talking about.
Here’s BeckyBot – a babysitter robot of course!
If you look closely you can see what she’s made out of, well other than hard work and a teenage dedication to the watching of young children.

Her head is a trashcan that I cut and modified and colored to fit just so. Her wrist cuffs are the seal on a light bulb. Her legs are from a fire place mantle and her body’s a salad bowl.

Did I mention that I freaking loved this gig? because did I ever!
If my dust bunnies were this cute, I wouldn’t ever sweep.(Let’s be honest, they aren’t and I don’t.)

Welcome #2 – to my newest project

I’m at the beginning of concepts for a new childrens book I’ll be doing in an evolved style that has it’s roots in this idea of photo collage.

The front door of this house is a huge and important factor for this new book, luckily I live in the most picturesque bit of Brooklyn a girl could hope to habitat.

Welcome #3 – to my neighborhood
These were all taken within a three block radius from my bit of brownstone.
Which do you think is most welcoming?

P.S. One of these doors is mine! – 3 points to anyone who can guess which.

  1. I love brownstone doors they are so beautiful! How lucky are you to be in a neighborhood with so many. My favorite is the bright red door(16th), my guess for your door is 6th.

  2. Is yours the red door then? They are all SO awesome. What a cool neighborhood. I am amazed at your creativity with the robot girl. So clever! And the bunnies are oh-SO-cute!!! You are very talented. And thank you so very, very much for your kind comments on my blog last week! You are so great!!

#summerchores This one goes out to @jenmorello 😘 
#onlyinnyc Reuniting my husband with this one million year-old pup was a highlight on our banner blink-and-you'll miss it trip home. Brooklyn, we'll miss you forever. Thanks @kymberella281 & @peckelmann you made this guy's weekend. Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy.
