Rack Card: Petit Philippe / Twenty Degrees Chocolates

I am pleased to work with artists and artisans of many mediums, including candy.  Cordon Bleu-trained Casey Hickey is a chocolatier and her husband is a wine guy -- together they are rocking a small but beautiful space in Myers Park's Tranquil Court shopping center.

We are working on menus and packaging, but here is the rack card produced for their participation in Charlotte's recent Democratic National Convention.

Rack Card: Petit Philippe / Twenty Degrees Chocolates

Just ordered these rack cards for client Petit Philippe and Twenty Degrees Chocolates. This husband-wife team runs a beautiful specialty wine and sweet shop in Myers Park and needed a card to share with visitors to their booth at next week's DNC CarolinaFest2012.

Yard Art Day: Sept 3, 2012

Creative force (and amazing photographer) Deborah Triplett launched Yard Art Day as a way to celebrate the artist in everyone, a chance for those of us who don't normally make or exhibit art to create and display our work in the most public of our intimate spaces -- our front yards.

With the support of the Quasimodo Project, the Yard Art Day project will have the attention of DNC visitors and locals alike on Monday, September 3, 2012 - Labor Day and the first day of Charlotte's Democratic National Convention.

Over 200 households and business have put themselves on the map with the promise of displaying art great and small.  Interest on the Yard Art Day facebook page promises those numbers could grow.  We are looking foward to a fun day of touring the city's new public art!

Our contribution to the effort?

We wove a rainbow from pvc pipe, chicken wire and over 300 yards of ribbon that was shamefully cluttering our studio, remnants of old projects.  The design and fabrication was a family affair, led by 10-year-old Gabe. The structure, should it survive 2 weeks in the elements, will later be incorporated into our backyard play area.

Even if it doesn't survive, the excercise and the short-lived product gave us a beautiful opportunity to create.  Thanks, Deborah!
