September 16th 2009

I borrowed a book from the library the other day called "Deep, Dark Chocolate". It was full of some of the most beautiful photos of chocolate goodies I've ever seen, including this one. Best looking birthday cake ever? Yes, I believe it is. Possible wedding cake idea? Perhaps.

It is less than 24 hours until we're in New York, and I'm starting to get excited! Before I can get too excited, however, I have one more illustration to finish up. I'm nearly there, and I'm quite happy with it, but I'm having a bit of a hard time concentrating on it.

I will be on a very short hiatus while we're away, but will write a report when we get back into town. I'm sure there will be lots of pictures, (most of which I'll probably post on Flickr), and stories to regale you with.

Until then!

    Is NYC a little personal vacay? ooh have fun!

  2. Hey Celine, No, this trip to New York is actually for a Team Macho show at Giant Robot. We'll be there for a few days, but I'm sure they'll be setting up for a couple of them. I'm going to be looking at galleries down there, and maaaaaybe get a little shopping in as well! haha
