a petite twosome
the month of july arrived along with my renegade counterpart & dear friend genevieve, owner & crafter of le petit elefant. this feisty girl has incredible & intrinsic talent, & the expanse of her skill has always amazed me (see her portfolio). genevieve & i have been friends since the start of high school (ours were the best science fair boards, though the experiments weren’t quite so scientific..), & through our attendance at usc (she for communication & animation, & i for architecture). over the last few years since then, genevieve started translating her artwork into plush form, & i began to pursue my intense inclinations towards paper. i don’t think this is where we had imagined we would be now, but i do think this is nice.
a charette, of sorts
the beginning of the month started a bit lightly — as i awaited the delivery of my printed goods, there were world cup viewings, birthdays, booth planning, & satchel sewing going on in the meanwhile. soon, genevieve started coming over to bellevue on a daily basis, plush took over the living room, & once the printed goods arrived (infinity thanks to paperdad), the dining table was sequestered next. i was very lucky to have friends on hand to help assemble & score & fold & glue & stamp & cut & stuff & package for an afternoon & for following evenings & the night before. it was magical.
