I took my kids to the playground and decided to draw this... Then a song came into my head...

A good friend is thinking of opening a coffee house that offers indigenous products like chocolate. I did these sketches for her logo... If you can't tell, a pile of coffee beans and a cacao pod...

A friend who owns a wine shop just turned 45. His name starts with a B... Now he has his very own wine! Might not be the most original idea but at least it's not a bottle of pink champagne...

It's been a looooooong time! So sorry. But much has happened. I am closing my store of 4.5 years and ready to get a real job.

I've decided to simply post a slew of sketches I've done without official blog posts. I hope you enjoy... Oh, and if you hear of any jobs let me know. :)

I suck!!! Seriously... My boyfriend and I went to a 40th birthday party at Brooklyn Bowl last weekend (I bet you thought this was headed in an entirely different direction). We showed up fashionably late (well maybe a little more than fashionably) and had to make up for lost time so we had to bowl about 6 sets in a row. Well I didn't hit one pin!!! I had more success with the sketch I drew at the kids birthday party I was at earlier that day (also at Brooklyn Bowl)... That's right... Two parties at the same place, on the same day with very different vibes...

After the bowling embarrassment we hung around and watched the burlesque show that was happening... It was...okay... At least it was more fun than a Real Estate seminar... But the real fun started when we visited my cousin at the bagel shop she works at. We hung out till 4am and ended the night laughing with a mouth full of poppy seeds! It was a perfect night in Brooklyn...

I need someone to scream this at me sometimes. My ex-husband used to say that I have 2 speeds; fast and sleeping. Of all the crap he said, he was right on about that one and damn it, I need to SIT MY ASS DOWN. The subway is as good a place as any...

I was sitting at the Tea Lounge in Park Slope one day, like a good yuppie, and noticed how nicely the bad lighting hides all the grossness of that place. I'm not saying the food is bad or that the coffee sucks, but it sure isn't the cleanest place. It does, however, have some cool lamps like this one. It was nice to sketch, which made my stay on the stained couch easier to deal with.

forest fire

So I was walking around Prospect Park this summer and stumbled upon this fire hydrant (or johnny pump as we say in old school bklyn). It was along one of the trails. Of course the first thing to come to my mind was the Dead Kennedys song Forest Fire. So Here is a little clip of the song just for your enjoyment. Don't get any ideas though...

I never drank coffee until I had kids and now I don't know how I would handle life without it. Actually I've recently become addicted to chai, the super sweet kind in a box. How comforting it is when I feel my heart rate go up a few notches and I start to talk super fast. Actually right now I am typing this like a speed demon because I just had a big ole' cup of it. Will I ever be able to end my addiction? Will I ever be able to function without it? Should I care?

drink me

My family is the ultimate in reusing things. This jug was brought to my aunt's house about 10 years ago from my father. He said he loved this apple juice and wanted everyone to try it. Not only that, check out the bottle it comes in? My dad was really in love with the Martinelli apple juice bottles and now his sister was falling for them too. Well she fell hard because she kept the damn bottle for 10 years! I have to admit, I love them too. They are simple and really do make you think of an apple with the leaves at the top. The lemon/lime-aid my aunt made was pretty damn good too. My father, a true granola wanna-be hippie, would have loved the reuse this bottle has gotten and the would have enjoyed the sweet juice that had a few sprigs of mint to spice it up. You go Aunt Joy!

More Smallwood fun! Can you tell I like the Catskills? Although this looks more like the Hamptons with the madras pattern on the word lake...
