Bits of inspiration

Every artist needs to take a field trip now and then. I love to go to Japanese stores like Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ. So much fun packaging design! I find myself wanting to buy things that I would likely never use-purely for the cuteness factor!


While staying at a friend's beach house in Asbury Park, I also fell in love with these ABSOLUTELY gorgeous floor tiles! Who couldn't love bunnies in blue and white?!? And yes, those are my (very) tanned tootsies in the shot. (broken pinky toe included). I will have to look at this in the dead of winter when I am as pale as a lump of dough. :)
