Flower Pot Cupcakes

These are the flower pot cupcakes that someone ordered for a golden birthday. They came out OK. I'm still not pleased with the way the gold frosting came out. I think I need to take some baking classes...


These are some pictures from my mom's 50th birthday party.

I baked this cake for her. The flowers took forever to make.
My the stencil! It will save you so much time!

I also made these flower pot cupcakes. They turned out really great!
I even was commissioned to make them for a party.

My aunt and I being goofy.
Everything was purple because its my mom's favorite color!

The cupcake recipes I got from my favorite cupcake book: Crazy About Cupcakes

This is just a bunch of work I've done in the past couple weeks for the internship I'm doing this semester.

This is the logo for the International Celebration. The shape is the logo of the Niles Public Library (where I'm working). It says 'library' in a ton of different languages.

These are posters for programs they're having at the Library

They're having a huge "Beatles Month" this month and I did all the graphic displays. These are hanging parallel to each other behind the circulation desk.

Esteban Cortazar Illustration

This was a practice get used to Adobe Illustrator again. We had to create one figure and do three different looks. I used Esteban Cortazar's Fall/Winter 2010/2011 line.

Illustrator tends to be too graphic a style for my usual look, but thats how it goes I guess.

Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging

This is a super cute movie from Gurinder Chadha, the director of 'Bend It Like Beckham' (which is also a fabulous movie!). Its based on 'Confessions of Georgia Nicolson' a series by Louise Rennison. I haven't read the books yet, but I've got them on hold at the library so we'll see how they go!

Starring Liam Hess, Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Georgia Groome, Eleanor Tomlinson (Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland)  and Alan Davies

The boys in this movie are absolutely fabulous...or as Georgia would say "Sex Gods". Haha I love it. If you have a hard time with British slang you might not get some parts, but its definitely worth it to watch.

Tokio Hotel~Audi Photoshoot

So I know I haven't posted any Tokio Hotel craziness..... but these pictures I just had to. They're just so hot :)

Oddly enough I chose cars as a concept for my shoe collection I have to illustrate for one of my classes and the Audi R8 V10 was one of my inspirations. How interesting :P I'll be posting my rough sketches soonish...when I have time!
