The Wine Questionnaire

I recently worked on over 40 illustrations/hand lettering for  this wine book for the beautiful publishing company, Assouline. I’m a fan of their books including my gorgeous Botanicals art book. The below quote from Marie Claire perfectly describes the contents of the book. Wouldn’t it be a great host/hostess gift? I plan to give one to my friend Joanna who loves cheese and wine.

Last night I attended a celebration for the launch of the Jason Wu for Target collection with my bestie Violet. There were some adorable pieces. Violet got the blush blouse above. Fyi, these snapshots were take with my iphone so don’t expect any Garance quality here. The best part of the whole evening (aside from the cloths + company) was the Laduree counter. Oh my gosh do I love macarons.

Rainbow doodle cake

scribble cake
Wow! This is a memorable cake. I am so not a baker. My mom is amazing and has been trying to get my to learn for years. Instead of me laboring with the rolling-pin I usually ask her to make cupcakes for occasions like Henry’s birthday. Still, this rainbow scribble cake seems too fun not to try. Perhaps I’ll learn how to make it and then collaborate with Henry on the scribble part.

Hope you had a cheerful weekend.
