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.

Stunning. Such a rich finish, and I really like the carving on this one.

Thank you. The photos aren't really showing how much gold is in the finish, but it's one of those things that shows up best in person.

It looks like a marbling finish; is that tough to get?

bronxelf says:

No, marbling would be easy to get. This is actually a gold lustre, which is embedded into the clear coat on multiple levels. Actually the paint work is always fairly easy for me- I did that kind of work professionally for nine years. It's the carving and dyeing that's the bitch.

Thanks. :) Interestingly this one is the only one that hasn't sold. Not sure why. I should have another one coming out late tonight (tomorrow morning your time), tomorrow afternoon/early evening latest.
