Miami Oink

This has nothing to do with trending, except that the tattoo thing is hotter than ever, but it is so strangely fascinating to me I had to post this. I guess beginning tattoo artist's have to start somewhere..........

Back in February I became aware of this website called 'Sleeveface.' Sleeveface is where one or more persons obscure or augment any part of their body or bodies with a record sleeve causing an illusion. It started in Wales, but the trend can be viewed on YouTube, Facebook and Flickr. I found it completely intriguing. I printed some pics and brought them into my trend meeting as a possible fad or trend to watch. Well, within a couple of weeks PEOPLE Magazine (March 24, 2008) featured a story called Covered Up. They called sleevefacing a "hot web trend" and "the latest DIY Internet fad." Now thousands of music fans are taking pictures of themselves with their favorite album covers.
What to do with such a trend? Jump on it! That's exactly what Duncan is doing - incorporating a cool Internet trend while making a fashion art statement.

Long Live Rock (and Dean)

Yesterday I get to work and start going through my emails, without even having any morning coffee (imagine that!) and one of my emails is from my big boss, Valerie, requesting that we all dress as 'rockers' because the next day (today) it is Dean's birthday. Dean is a cool guy I work with who just happens to be a rocker by night, with his own band, HAT-TRICK. By day, he is 'Dippin' Dean', knowledgeable about all things ceramic.
Anyway, because we all love Dean and are all 'a little bit rock 'n' roll, some of us actually donned our rocker clothes and came to work. Poor Valerie is traveling and missed out on all the black clothing, band tee shirts, heavy make-up and Guitar Hero guitars. Believe me, V would have jumped right in and rocked with us!
Dean was very surprised when he arrived for work to see many of the marketing team paying homage to him. Allee went as far as to make a jacket with Dean's band's name on the back. That's what's awesome about working for a creative company. When the work day wrapped, we gathered with Dean around his truck and took a picture. Front row (l to r) is Nicole, Alyson, Allee and Alexis. Back row is David, me and Dean. Happy birthday, Dean!
