Timothy Sue

Today I visited the studio of Colette Clark, the owner, designer, marketer, the everything that makes up Timothy Sue, a removable wallpaper company she began and named in memory of her father and grandmother who were both fine artists. It was an inspiring experience, to say the least. We also worked something out where I'll be helping her create new patterns and colorways for her line! I feel that this will be valuable for me since I see myself going into wallpaper in the future. It will be good to see how the industry works and to expand my knowledge of what wallpaper studios exist. Also, I love her work, and am super excited to be able to contribute creatively to her company. Here are a couple of my favorite pieces:

Hearts Apart



Some interesting information about Timothy Sue Wallpaper: it's removable! Meaning it is like a fancy, giant sticker that you can remove and reapply time and time again. I got to test out some of the stuff at the studio and it's amazing! Super easy to peal off and yet never loses it's stick-factor. Great idea for people renting who want patterns in their interior lives. Check out her website here: Timothy Sue

Labor Day

Well, here goes nothing! Post a day.

So, today:

I ate amazing, seriously, THE MOST amazing brisket I have ever had. Falling apart, so much juicy fat. Ugh, so good.

I also watched Breaking Bad, the last 3 episodes of season 3. All I have to say is, damn. I watched the first season and wasn't so keen on it. I think because I related more to the main character, Walter White, than you do in later seasons as he becomes more and more removed from his emotions. Season 1 is so raw, bleak, and bloody and makes you squirm. What I saw of season 3, while still incredibly bleak, doesn't have that same raw discomfort of the first season because Walter is so immersed in the drug trade. He has become sharp, cold, and conniving. He still lives by a type of moral code, but he has the guts and the quick wit to survive. Who we see in season 1 isn't a survivor but a man backed into a corner trying to decide if the only way to save himself is to take another person's life. Now he does what needs to get done, because he knows what he has to do to survive. While watching I couldn't help but think 'this is what Weeds wanted to be but then they went all slut and humour on us'.

Well, that's all for now. Gonna stay up workin' on the ol' portfolio!!! 'night ya'll!
