Find Momo – THE BOOK!

Monday, February 24, 2014 2 Permalink 0

You know when you meet someone and you just know they are incredibly talented and you hope others will see that one day? This isn't the first time I have mentioned the work of Andrew Knapp and his loyal bud Momo. And I am excited to get to share with my readers a special sneak peek of his PUBLISHED work! You can see all the amazing things he is up to on his website here but today I am just sharing his new Find Momo book. On March 14th, 2014 Find Momo will be available for y'all to enjoy from Quirk Books. An amazingly simple premise. A dog loves to play, hide and be thrown sticks. Owner realizes dog will 'stay' until stick is thrown. Momo stays. Hides. Andrew snaps pic. People go wild for pic. It's "Where's Waldo" but for insane dog lovers like myself.  I died laughing when I opened up the ...

Blog Awards – Tags and Other Things

I really love blogging. It offers a totally different outlet to talk about things I like with a bunch of relative strangers. And for that same reason, I tend to shy away from sharing too much personal information. Don't get me wrong - I want readers to learn a little about me and my life...

Long gone are the days that you could put something online (think mIRC & early day 1990's websites) and it doesn't exist anymore (thank God!). Technology and blogging has come a million miles since then... I love reading personal blogs that others write and really enjoy some ...

Does everyone have a time period in their teenager years where they thought to themselves that they would love to become an artist of some sort like I did? Or maybe that was just me and some sort of odd fantasy I had! Well when I was younger I loved the idea of creating assemblage pieces - fusing history with visually appealing objects... Alas, you might be surprised to know it never quite worked out for me..... But becoming a professional artist did work out for Julia Hepburn, a full time artist who creates dioramas (miniature models). I met Julia years ago through her now husband, Hayden, an old friend of mine. On several different occasions I got to check out her pieces in person and I can tell you right now that no photograph will ever do her work justice. They are breathtaking, incredibly fascinating and truly, you need to see them in ...
