What is lexapro 0

I was very excited to work with a very inspiring group of 12 years olds who are attending the Russell Byers Charter School. Powerful Voices is a Media Literacy summer camp offered to the students. I worked with 7 kids on the ‘Gold Team’ for a 5 hour session. Dave Moore, the instructor, and a […]

First time out with the cameras 0

We did an image scavenger hunt today with still cameras. I think it was a successful activity. They seemed excited to get out of the classroom. The scavenger hunt was a mixture of finding shots (cu of a circular object; wide shot of something in motion) and more conceptual ideas (love, work, danger). The flip […]

Meldonium 0

I finished the first of 6 weeks with the Seamaac summer camp. Phally and Luce have been my faithful comrades up against a wily group of 8-15 year olds who, if given the chance would be happy playing icebreaker games instead of talking about making movies… The set up is 20 or so kids Tues […]

JoMar is the undiscovered gem of South Philly 3

Yesterday I took an inspired trip to Fabric Row, where I fell in love with thick orange fuzzy fabric at Kinkus- the $30/yd price was not going to hold me back…. Until…. I discovered the much talked about JoMar in South Philly, not to be confused with JoBo fabrics in Pensauken, NJ. JoMar is a […]

How do you say Smurf in your language? 0

Well, after yesterday, I had the energy to keep going. I tested out this sprayer which seemed intimidating at first, then simple, then too much work for what it was worth… so I went back to Home Depot and called my dad from the roller aisle. We settled on a 1/4inch nap, and a pack […]

Work day- July 4th 2

First collective Work Day was a big success. Thank you Lindsey, Doro, Lisa Marie and Aggie for your impeccable taping, sanding, peeling, painting, cutting job… we can all happily add these new skills to our resume. We installed some salvage carpet, a bit of a patchwork job, but very cozy. Don’t cut carpet against the […]

Day 2 0

Day 2. We decided to pull up the floor covering. Seemingly innocuous rubber on top. Thinner and paint-soaked layers of insulation-like cotton candy below. Now the kids don’t have to breathe in paint fumes. We finished pealing off the decal letters and sanded all the exterior walls in preparation for painting! Next task: remove pesky […]

It’s here! 0

The Van arrived today. Excitement and a little anxiety. What did I get myself in to? We start by removing some of the interior shelves and digging our nails into the side decals to remove them. Parkway Painting is my dad’s business. The Van was with him for over 10 years and now it will […]

2 days until landing 0

The Van arrives on Wed morning. Once it’s parked outside my house, there will be no way to avoid diving in and getting dirty. I received the first round of artwork from Bassem who is creating characters and micro scenes for the exterior of the van. Here is a sneak  peak mock up of the […]

logo development 4

I think we are getting close to deciding on the logo/graphic design for the title… this has been quite an interesting process to go through. Michelle and Quizayra my trusty design team from UARTS have been working with me to get this just right. What do you think? first try:
