Gallery Mondays: Stephen Andrade’s “Erotic Zombie Friend Fiction”

I’ve been saving this one for Halloween.

Last month, I visited the Bob’s Burgers exhibit at Spoke Art NYC. It was too cool.

My favorite character from the show is Tina Belcher, so of course all of the art featuring her caught my eye.

I especially loved this one called “Erotic Zombie Friend Fiction” by Stephen Andrade. She looks like such a teenager with that mini skirt! And check out that pose!

White Zom-Brie Burger, anyone? Check out more of Andrade’s work at www.sandradeillustration.com/home.html.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

Fan Art Fridays: Mirror Mirror

On the way to work this morning, I saw a guy dressed as the Big Bad Wolf in Grandma’s nightgown and I could not stop laughing to myself about it.

It got me thinking of my favorite fairy tales. One of my faves as a kid was Snow White, and I especially loved Mirror Mirror as an adult, starring Lily Collins and Julia Roberts.

I found this enchanting fan art by daekazu of the evil Queen Clementianna and Snow White from the 2012 film over on Deviant Art. Lily Collins’ eyebrows are quite accurate (I’ve always been super jealous of how nice her eyebrows are).

Anyone dressing up as a character from a fairy tale for Halloween this year?

I’m still a bit sick but I’m not letting it get in the way of Wardrobe Wednesdays.

Fan Art Fridays: Victoria Beckham

Word out on the streets is that Victoria Beckham is coming out with a new collection for Target in 2017.

You don’t understand the amount of excited I am for this!

If Victoria’s personal style is any indication of what’s in store for the collection, I’ll have to control myself when I see the clothing. Like, DO NOT LET ME BUY MORE THAN 1 OR 2 PIECES.

In celebration of this news, I’ve decided to feature this amazing fan art of Victoria Beckham by Davii Honorato. I can’t get over how sassy her hair looks in the sketch. And wowza, those are some gorgeous cheekbones!

Gallery Mondays: Tara

Last week, I visited the Rubin Museum downtown with Niketa during K2 Lounge Fridays. It was too cool!

I waited for Niketa in the museum’s gift shop, where I ended up acquiring some new post cards for my walls. When she arrived she bought a bracelet and fragrant soap.

After our little shopping spree, we sat down at K2 Lounge and decided to order spicy lamb meatballs and two glasses of Riesling wine. I’d never had lamb before but I actually really liked it.

Meanwhile, DJ Shishi was at the turn table spinning what one visitor claimed to be “remixes of popular Indian music.” He also played some Darius and AlunaGeorge.

In the galleries we discovered these amazing copper sculptures of Buddhist deities. No matter which floor we wound up on, I was drawn to each depiction of Tara in the exhibits. There was just something about her.

The photo of Tara above was made of gilt copper alloy in Nepal. She’s got amazing posture, doesn’t she?

I totally recommend you go see Tara at the Rubin Museum on K2 Lounge Fridays. Admission is free!

It’s that time of the year again when the leaves start to dry up and fall off the trees, leaving your favorite parks covered in crunchy yet colorful landscapes.

For those of you that enjoy long autumn walks, here’s a little playlist to keep you company.

1. Manipulator, MADEIRA. Let’s manipulate the weather so it’ll be warm enough to take a nice walk in the park.

2. Crystals, ARDENCY feat. Icelandia. Some synth vibes from ARDENCY and Icelandia to guide you along.

3. Dekire, Charles Murdoch feat. Oscar Key Sung. These soft vocals from Oscar Key Sung are just the thing you need this fall.

4. Riptide, NTEIBINT. In the spirit of Halloween…

5. Bite, Troye Sivan. “Don’t you wanna see a man up close?”

6. Let It Happen, Tame Impala. This one is sure to put a pep in your step.

7. People, Kye Kye. A little serenade by Olga from Kye Kye.

8. Standard, Empress Of. If you start to “see a man who isn’t there,” I’d run back home immediately.

9. Pray to God, Calvin Harris, feat. HAIM. Let’s just hope you don’t run into any Wiccans in the woods.

10. Dead End Thrills, Cubicolor. The only moment when reaching a dead end in the woods seems thrilling.

11. Details, Andrew Belle. “You think the devil is gonna let on that you’re in the details?”

12. Touch Me, Superhumanoids. For the victory walk home.

Have an amazing autumn season!

Fan Art Fridays: Kevin Hart

Congrats to Kevin Hart for getting his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week!

The comedian had a very big week with the release of his film What Now? hitting the theaters today. The last movie I saw Kevin Hart in was Get Hard, and it was even more hilarious than it normally would have been because I caught it on HBO Latino.

Yeah. Imagine Kevin Hart dubbed oven in Spanish.

In honor of Kevin Hart’s new star and film, today’s Fan Art Fridays is a color pencil drawing of the comedian by @vfj87_artist on Instagram. It’s so Kevin Hart of him to hold the microphone upside down like that.

Kevin Hart proves that the best things come in fun-sized packages.

Carving (& Drilling) Pumpkins with Karina

1006161948_hdr

I wanted an excuse to see Karina’s schnauzer Lou Lou last week so I bought two medium sized pumpkins at Lowe’s in Chelsea and hauled them all the way to Queens.

I already knew I wanted to carve an emoji on my pumpkin, but Karina was undecided. She saw a few cool patterned carvings online but realized she wouldn’t have the patience to carve that many holes into the pumpkin to create her design.

So we cranked some Roosevelt tunes while she took a drill to it.

I had a bit of trouble getting the pumpkin guts out of mine, but Karina had no problem stepping in to rake them out with a fork.

It was fairly easy to draw the emoji on my pumpkin to carve out the shapes. After we put the small tealights into the pumpkins, Karina realized she needed to puncture her holes deeper in order to see the lights.

Overall they turned out pretty well! Mine is molding now because I wasn’t aware that I had to bleach the pumpkin to preserve it. Karina had the right idea by not making the holes too big because if her’s molds you won’t notice. I’m hoping it’ll make it to Halloween anyway.

And there you have it: The heart face emoji falls in love with the disco ball.
