I brought in three new paintings to Sis and Moon’s Gallery today. I look forward to seeing you in the shop.
I don’t know if you know but sometimes Alex Feliciano, John Tindel, and Michi Mecho get together and paint. Three pieces you can come and touch.

On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉
by Alex Feliciano. a series of masks, faces, bears, rabbits, dogs, and monsters. They have sold out. Second collection coming early 2014.

Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge!
Their Mission? to inspire the making of awesome handmade cardboard costumes.
They have decided that this year they wanted to adopt a non-commercial, non-competitive approach (less contest, more spirit tunnel) AND to make the event more kid-centered(it’s such a valuable design opportunity for kids.) also wanted encourage adults, who maybe don’t own a sewing machine, or don’t think of themselves as “creative” to branch out and try dabbling in cardboard. more at… http://thecardboardcollective.com/

Hola, So I have been advising clients away from skeuomorphism in thier designs. You may ask, “Why would you do that, skeuomorphism is dope.” and your right it is cool, but when we go to production the tangental aspect is quickly overshadowed by business needs and dynamic integration quickly blows up budgets. It looks great in the comp, but many times ends up getting scrapped in production.
I love design for design sake, (it’s called art) and in time skeuomorphism design will settle into a nice place so will “flat”. “Flat” for now, will be the new rounded corner. It will be used in places it’s not needed and everything will look like a 50’s ad campaign. This “flat” idea will spin itself out as a new style emerges and replaces “flat”. Maybe a representative monochromatic style (super flat), or using only CSS3 (code flat), or pure line work (anti flat). The great thing is good design will persist..
I would love to talk about the Save button next….
