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.

Total carving time=4.5 hours.
No problems with this one. It's drying now and when it's thoroughly dry I'll
hit it with some sealer before I move on to the next step.

let's put this in perspective. My place is only 866 square feet. There's always cats somewhere nearby. However, none are currently threatening to get on my desk.

Mandy- once this one is sealed, I'll be painting the exterior red... for prep on the next step.

Oh also you're right about the white balance, you can see the problem in the second photo.
