What's New Pussycat?

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted and I've been busy. Since school has ended, I've done a bunch of fun things!

1) I got a grant through FIGMENT to build a mini golf hole on Governor's Island with the help of Michael Oshins,

where it will be up and FREE to play all summer long. We were vastly underprepared for what we were
getting ourselves into, but it was a great

learning experience. Here's some pictures of the finished hole. The theme was Bugs and Features this year, and Mike and I decided to make our hole a "feature". It's titled, The Golf Channel. (In real-life 3D!)

2) I acted in a feature film called The Adventures of Paul and Marian, as Teen Girl 1, alongside my good friend and roommate Minoo Allen (teen girl 2). The Adventures of Paul and Marian is a comedic independent musical directed by Jay Stern. To read more about it, you can go to . The cast and crew were great and the whole thing was anawesome experience. When I wasn't acting, I was helping production designer Sarah Edkins set dress and build. The entire shoot was done on a green screen, so every foreground piece and prop had to be constructed and assembled each day. It was a lot of work , but it was so much fun!

3) Currently, I'm home in Buffalo, NY gearing up for a month long summer program in Purchase, NY that I will be helping to teach alongside comic book extraordinaire Carl Potts.

4) And on top of all that, I've been using the website to make customized cards for people. (thanks to Deena Newell who introduced me to the site!) Then I started thinking, hey, I could make cards for people! I mean, I am an amazing artist and love to draw (wink wink)!

Here are two examples of cards I have made. I'd love to hear feedback on this new idea of starting a little business out of making custom cards. And if anyone is interested- shoot me an email!
