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

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

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

- Less Than Jake: Is This Thing On?

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

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

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.

Which makes them even more amazing - that you saw them and found such a cool way to incorporate them into your design. :-) I'm really looking forward to seeing the completed package, I have been a fan since the copper electronics. Plus, the DC kitchen, which I actually got to see live and in color.

bronxelf says:

Not for nothing, but the DC kitchen rocks, still. Even IM amazed at the difference and I designed the thing.

They are really nice. They come from a Dutch firm. They're called "Dandelion" lamps.

wow, the rendering is just impeccable, gorgeous design.

Thanks, honey. It's getting there. This one *should* be all set except for people tonight. I may ask a friend of mine who is good with creating people if she wants to try to add a few for fun, or else I will just put them in in photoshop. The bar one should be done by morning and then the Rubber Room should start up. Basically it's a rendering a day and a half til Im done now. I am designing just ahead of the renderings.
