These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

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.

Saturday's egg, part 5: I can't believe I just did this.

This is entirely my fault. I was just finished painting the tortoiseshell,
and was pushing down on the lids of the paint pots to seal them shut. I was
reading something at the same time and pushed down on the top of the egg

Will be back later with round two.

This was really dumb.

Oh no. Moments like that really make you shake your head. I've had more than a fair share of them.

Still, a pisser.

The paint job looks incredible, though. I know you SAID it would be tortishell but I wasn't sure how you were going to manage that. But it looks just like her fur!

I've actually done *significantly* better torties than this one. I will see if I can get Rich to scan a couple photos to show you later.

It's okay. The replacement is out of thebleach and touched up. Im getting ready to dye it now.

seeing the crushed egg pictures makes me cringe. Glad that the replacement is going along already!

bronxelf says:

Oh yes. The replacement is already carved up, touched up and dyed. It just needs painting next, but I'm letting it dry out for several hours.
