Pastry Divas Logo - Commission Piece

I recently reconnected with a childhood friend by the name of Tiffany that contacted me about designing a logo for her after she came across my work online. It just so happens that she runs her own pastry company by the name of "Pastry Divas", which worked perfectly with a lot of the sweet inspired work I've been doing recently. When she explained what she wanted I instantly had an idea of where I wanted to go with this piece. Above is one of three logos that I completed for her, the other two being a full color and black and white version. Tell me what you think.

"Little Miss Foo Foo" - Personal Piece

For the closing event for "Rocket To Venus" I really wanted to present a new piece. Not only for those that have already seen the show, but also as a way to celebrate the occasion and keep up the productivity. The idea was to go for something playful yet unsettling, with a light touch of couture design. I've been really inspired by 80's fashion editorials lately, I guess that would explain the big hair.

I'm Not Dead... I Promise.

I know, I know. It's been far too long since my last post, but it's with good reason. I was fortunate enough to land my first solo art exhibition with Naked Chocolate Cafe. So yes ladies and gentlemen, I was not off somewhere eating potato chips and watching classic reruns of The Golden Girls, even though that actually sounds pretty nice right now.

Maleka "Lady M" Diggs was sweet enough to offer me such a great opportunity, so I decided to mix together some of my new ideas along with some of the recent work I've been posting on here. More then anything else, I wanted this show to be fun and feminine of course.

Entitled "Rocket To Venus", the exhibit ran from July 19th to August 31st. Simple put, this was such a blessing. I honestly could not have asked for a better experience. Everyone was so wonderful, and I was even given both an opening and closing date. Because I wanted the show to have a fresh quality, I decided to wait until after the closing to post all of the new pieces. So here they are and please make sure to tell me what you guys think.

"Any Excuse For A Party"

"Doggie Style"


"On Wednesday We Wear Pink"

"Artificial Sweetener"

"Rocket To Venus"

"There's No "I" In Team"

"Make It All Better"

"She's Got The Look"

Thanks to everyone who supported, inspired, encouraged, listened, modeled, and celebrated such an amazing moment in my life. I will forever be grateful.
