Team Tracy & Team Olivia

Everyone who knows me knows I LOVE, love, LOVEEE Jerseylicious!! If you did not know I made my own little design to portray Tracy and Olivia's "Teams." I wanted to get them made into T-shirt but unfortunately I could not afford it. So the cheaper alternative, was to get them made into pins!

And guess what I got in the mail today?

Each pin is about 2 inches in diameter with a glossy finish and a metal pin backing.




Keep in mind these are FAN MADE MERCHANDISE, and no way am I claiming rights to the TV Show Jerseylicious. There is no real way I can sell them so I am giving them away! :D

I have 4 Team Tracy and 4 Team Olivia and I just posted them on the Jerseylicious Fan Page. If you are interested in snagging one please comment on this blog (or the Jerseylicious fanpage) telling me whose YOUR favorite. I will pick 8 lucky people and post them off to you.

*Be sure to add a way to contact you, (e-mail) so I can get your address.

Toy Story 3 and Contact Page Update

Today was a great day. Me and my dad went to see Toy Story 3. It was a late Father's Day gift, I have been so busy working I did not get to go until today. The movie was great, but it had some real sad parts, joyfully sad and just sad sad.

It was great seeing some of the new characters though, I really liked Bonnie and the Ken doll was hilarious.

I do not really have a lot of my toys from my childhood. Not that I had many toys to begin with growing up. And a lot of my favorite books were destroyed when our ceiling leaked. I guess that is why I like art. All the things I imagine and all the things I ever want I can create for myself.

I also got around to putting up a contact form on the Contact page of my website. Now it is easier than ever to get a hold of me for projects, general questions and anything within reason! Not a lot of people have e-mail addresses they use all the time, so I have a box for your phone number as well. I tested it out, it works wonderfully!

Robots and Crystal Castles

So far I accomplished a lot today. I got tickets to see Crystal Castles this summer at the Electric Factory. I love the Electric Factory, it's such a great venue. I have been a fan of Crystal Castles since they first started getting their name tossed around in blogs around 2005. I found them through a great site called SitelPop UK and now look at that, they are playing right here in Philly!!

As soon as I got home I spent a lot of time on my freelance job at the East Hanover Studio. I've made great progress and will wrap my project up soon.

I also wanted to let everyone know that EveryoneLovesRobots, one of my most adored client's released a new Youtube video that has a shout out to me in it!! Be sure to check that out and subscribe by clicking here!

One last thing is in my "free" time I am going to try to complete a three print series of some robots. I completely the first print eons ago and neglected to post it here. But here it is:

I started a pink girl robot as well and will probably use them as covers for my journals in my Etsy shop or just sell the prints together.

Hope everyone has a great day today, will post again soon!

Me and Dad in New Jersey

Hey everyone I'm not doing a very great job of blog updating lately which is sad because I was going to try to beat last month's epic 11 post marathon, the most posts I've made for a month SO FAR.

I have been legitimately busy though. Today I went to New Jersey to a party at the Gatsby Salon, home of the Style Network's show "Jerseylicious" that we all know and love!! My dad was kind enough to take me when I heard about the party and we drove three hours to get there!!

You had to sign in at the abandoned mattress store (the one they filmed the commercial takes in, remember?!?!) and get your picture taken in case you were filmed. They had free food, healthy snacks, soda and water, but you had to pay for ice cream which was :( They were also filming!!

But the best part is I got to deliver Tracy her pictures!! I squeezed my way through a couple people and she recognized me so we hugged and she signed the prints I tried to deliver eons ago in the post! I also got to take my picture with her.

We had left shortly after though since it would be a long long drive. Me and Dad then stopped at WaWa to see if they had pints of Gadzooks! an ice cream made by the radio show near us that we are both big fans of, WMMR.

I am really glad that dad took me to New Jersey!! What a great day!

Beetlejuice and Upcoming Piece

I am pleased to hear that nicky finally received my piece for the Tour Crush Art Trade Board. I am still waiting on hers, but I know it will be arriving soon because I also ordered some TourCrush silicone bands from here as well that shipped out yesterday.

I did not really have any restrictions as to what to create since she was not picky but I knew she liked the movie Beetlejuice so I wanted to create something that featured Beetlejuice and Ice Cream trucks.

But this is the piece I created for her:

And this what she had to say:

If you don't know what TourCrush is, it's an awesome lovechild of awesomeness created by Chantal from Morning Wood and her husband Jimmy from Mindless Self Indulgence. To learn more about that, be sure to head to

Since I finished that I started a new trade with ryan. So far I've been really inspired by this picture:

So stayed tuned to see what I come up with next :D

Youtube Layout, Zazzle, and more JERSEYLICIOUS!

Well I finally finished creating the "Youtube Layout" for the EveryoneLovesRobot's channel. Making a youtube layout is something I have never done before. Not sure if I mentioned this already though but I slaved over this epic masterpiece only to find out that the customization options I wanted were for Youtube Partner's only. Live and learn!!

But we managed to tweek the background around enough so that it still looks awesome with what little options that were available. Here is a screenshot of the layout:

(click it to see the larger version)

To view the full thing, check out the channel Don't forget to subscribe.

Also the logo I created is now available on merch such as shirts, pins, and hoodies at the Zazzle Store:

The best thing about Zazzle is you don't have to have your shirt white, or your hat black, you can pick nearly ANY color you want with no extra cost. I ordered two of the small pins and cannot wait for them to arrive.

ALSO I cannot wait for my Artrade with the awesome Nicky to arrive either. I re-sent out the envelope containing mine and hopefully it arrives VERY soon. I will take a picture and finally reveal the secret print I created for her.

Third thing, Tracy DiMarco from Jerseylicious on the Style Network has requested I create her a new avatar!! She's gone much darker with her hair right now. She informed me she FINALLY got the prints I sent her, signed them, and shipped them off to me!! Yippee!

One more thing worth mentioning, tonight I decided to do some photoshopping:

That is it for today!!
