These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Egg creams for all.

Box o glass.

The box full of Altoids tins contains all my mosaic glass. Altoids tins make convenient receptacles-- granted they don't have clear tops, but they hold a bag of mosaic glass quite well, so each tin in the box contains a different colour. The nippers with the yellow handles arent mine though- my red handled spring-loaded nippers are still hiding someplace. I will use the borrowed yellow ones instead, if I can finally come up with a colour scheme I like. I haven't looked in this box in ages.

It's a bit dusty.

slow going.

In the bottom part of the top picture, all the stuff in red has already been put into this elevation.The stuff in yellow still needs to be done. The problem has been these chairs(as seen in the second photo). There are three versions here, but there are five in total. Thetime it's taken me to draw these up in elevation can be measured at a rate
of about 2.5 hours *each*. They're really detailed drawings(I'm not close enough in in either of these shots to get all the details).I really should be working on finishing the last of those bathroom layouts
and then redesigning hotel suites but I really want to get this elevation
drawn up so I don't have to think about it anymore.

Unfortunately I'm so tired right now I don't know if I *can* finish that
last chair drawing (though this is the hardest view) right now. I don't
have much left to do on it-- but it's four really complex leg sections,
where the legs alll overlap.I am supposed to be going to lunch with a friend today but I think I may cancel. I *truly* don't have the time to leave the house anymore unless it's a necessity. :(
