Some updates from the weekend…
A layout I did tonight for fun. I’m working on others thanks to some fantastic kits I got during Digital Scrapbooking Day/weekend. :-D
A new business card I designed for Geek Bliss! I just love using retro pinup art, and I’m going to be doing more things for GB with pinups.
I also did more photos for Geek Bliss, and listed a couple more items…
This is a new photo for Acid Burn cinnamon lip balm, named for the character “Acid Burn” played by Angelina Jolie in the movie Hackers (pic in the pic). My second-fav heroine of all time (the first is Trinity from The Matrix). For anyone reading who knows the movie, I also have a Crash Override lip balm (root beer flavor), and will soon offer a “Crash & Burn” set. ;-)
New photo for Nothing But the Rain unflavored lip balm, named after a line from the new Battlestar Galactica. Yep, that’s my BSG flightsuit being used as a prop, lol! My costuming hobby comes in handy in between cons. :-D
New balm to the store, Hot Geek, which is strawberry flavor. This is that yummy strawberry from way back when…the days of Maybelline lip glosses. This flavor really does take me back.
Dodge This chocomint lip balm…mmm this is possibly my favorite of them all. Just so darn good. It’s named after one of Trinity’s best lines in the first Matrix movie. And yep, that’s a pair of Trinity sunglasses and a long latex glove as props…my costuming habit coming in handy again!
Red Pill cinnamint lip balm…another Matrix-inspired balm.
Besides making lip balms, photographing them, and making art, I actually got out this weekend…
Friday night my roommate and I went to see Vains of Jenna play, an awesome rock band out of L.A. (originally from Sweden) that’s in the same style as L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Motley Crue, etc. I’m still a total rocker at heart and I was SUPER excited that VoJ were playing nearby! They sounded amazing even though sadly the club was not crowded. Le sigh. People just don’t know what they’re missing…hahaha! This pic is of me and the singer, Lizzy DeVine. He’s older than he looks—I will say that they all looked younger than I expected, which means they must not be living TOO much of a rocker lifestyle…LOL!! All the hair bands of the 80s looked decades older than they were when I saw them back in the day.
Vains of Jenna doing their thing.
I ended up having a productive AND fun weekend. Love it! I’m now off to do another layout and then watch The Ugly Truth. Tomorrow, more NaNo!
