Happy Birthday girl! I had a great time, small intimate dinner.  One shot was enough for me.  I’m trying to lay low now. I don’t even want to tell you how I’ve been PMSing for two weeks; you know the symptoms crying, pouting, frowning (just too much on the plate with the documentary stuff, book, website…I’m doing too much and not relaxing so I can have a clear head).  I have to learn to delegate better…lol…so to make up for it last night, I snuck in my fridge around 2am and saw…..drum roll…the red velvet cake from your birthday party…why did my greedy self grab a spoon and walk the cake to the bed…hopped back in the sheets and guess what….why did I wake up with whip cream and red crumbs on my face….AND the spoon and the plate of cake I didn’t eat.  I fell asleep with the cake….LOLOL….aw man…gotta love me…sometimes I brighten up my own damn day with the things I do…LOVE you…from Boston to NY!!! I got ya mama…

Now for my next birthday you have to surprise me…since I’ve never had a surprise anything.  I organize things…so I never get to reap the treasures of being in the passenger side of the whip.

I love love, so you know I love how all the beautiful ladies were in the building to celebrate for you…that makes me feel happy! Thanks for holding me down too…

By the way, more of The Alchemist talk later…and your boyfriends advice made it absolutely worstttttt!!!! Silence. ARRGGHHH…:(

Bet ya didn’t know that Kay Konnect was an illustrator too.  I went to school for ART before all of this…Bee in Chicago, I know you are proud to see these pieces from Chamberlayne School of Design…I should have stuck with it I guess…my entire portfolio is in Boston in my mothers basement…:(

Thats all original hand drawings with stories behind them.  The pigments for the eyes are MAC eyeshadow powders, not crayon.  I took them from predesigned MAC textured eye palette sheets. The other images I utilized acrylic pigment, stencils, and crayons…peep the details of the lashes.  That requires a steady hand and ease with the strokes.

Don’t even ask about the complexity of the dual upside faces.  That’s a story in itself.
