Studio Visit: (Brown) Claire Warden

December 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

Claire finished printing for her show at eyelounge in February. I sat and asked dumb questions. Here’s to spending hours in the lab at Matthews Hall and receiving threatening notes from the parking attendants.

The Villevieilles Take a Christmas Vacation

December 28, 2011 § 1 Comment

In what turned out to be a week long ode to the Griswald’s, we packed our bags and headed out to Les Arcs for a ski vacation. Joined by my cousins, “the Incredibles” and Sarah-Jane, we enjoyed a week of cookies, grogs, snow, electricity failures, birthdays, the occasional jager, more snow, cheese and, oh yeah, still more snow.

Pony Paradise has opened down the street. Replete with images of Monument Valley, confederate flags and cowboy clichés… it feels just like home.

Airport Love

I’ve always had a thing for airports, and my layover in Paris CDG’s newest wing yesterday reminded me why. Great architecture, open space, smoothies with beanies and 10 euro side salads to boot. Sign me up, Paris!
