Welcome to the Hippodrome

I was on my daily #BMORE walk when I came across this cool looking theater sign with an even cooler sounding name. Apparently it was a former vaudeville theater built in the early 1900’s. Fun fact: Frank Sinatra first performed with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra right here at the Hippodrome. I had Public Enemy’s “Welcome to the Terrordome” stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

Smell the Magnolias

Freelancers: Take Time to Smell the Magnolias

As a freelancer, I love the fact that I can walk outside my front door and take time to smell the magnolias every once in a while. I think its important for people untether themselves from their computer and smart-phones now and again to simply stop and enjoy and appreciate the beauty of life. For myself, it really helps to re-charge the creative batteries. I caught a lady bug doing the same thing this morning.

Anthony Ryan’s Fall Collection Preview

I was able to get a sneak peak at Anthony Ryan’s Fall 2014 Collection at the “The Art of Fashion” preview party last night. Some of Anthony’s Project Runway colleagues and plenty of models were in attendance. The place was just dripping with fabulousness and beautiful people.

I was most interested in his inspiration boards and sketches…I had no idea that he was a fellow graphic designer (and a Baton Rouge LSU graduate). #ProjectRunway #RunwayOnDisplay
