It’s been one of those kind of lazy weeks.
Dealing with roof leaks & postal mix-ups.
Sheeting should be here early next week, so I can finally start working again.

Finishing this client piece today. I like how it looks…what can I say, it’s fun to destroy something, break it down, then rebuild it. We shall call it CLOTHINGCYBORG. (Yes, it has matching pants.)

Corwin shot my lookbook (basically a portfolio of boring, on white background pics of all my pieces) on the lovely Sophie Nova…they will be posted on my upcoming website by the end of the month. Thankfully he managed to also take a couple awesome shots like this one so he didn’t die of boredom:

What this also means for you is that ALL MY OLDER PIECES ARE NOW FOR SALE. They are prototypes, so they have some minor flaws, but they are fun nonetheless. If you want anything you’ve seen on here, please email me at vaunt

Mosh posted this cute & creepy pic on her blog of her wearing the bunny hood. So excited to see pictures.

Depressing point: the glue that I was attempting to mix together to make my own formula failed miserably. Thankfully I only used it on some decorative pieces since I had a feeling it wouldn’t work, but now I’m back to square one. Sigh. Another endless quest.

And lastly, some personal visual inspiration:

Inka Essenhigh has been one of my favorite artists for a long time. Everything she paints looks like it’s being pulled apart but never breaking, stretching but filled with some inhuman viscous substance that never pops. The organic shapes look like natural themes but distorted like fingers in a river. I’d love to take inspiration from them and do a huge liquid latex & applique on a transparent latex piece.
Ok, enough art babble, ha.

Picture by Barry Goyette…my favorite of the work he’s posted. Lovely texture in both the water and the shirt, combining. And I have a thing for floral upholstery type print, as you well know.

Saw this on deviantArt last summer- the illustrator is Laura Bifano. Looks like a song somehow, or a dream.

The Mosh bunny ears are absolutely to die for, naturally.
Do I have the pleasure of seeing you next week? I fucking hope so.
