Hold the phone, my friday just got a whole lot more interesting!
At 8:40 Kelly Ripa, and Josh Grobin, eat the oscar cookies I draw for Eleni's Bakery. Specifically, George Clooney and Rooney Mara-- before they throw the rest into the crowd. But in a happy way!
Edit: oops this is the clip from last year! duh. I'll post the new one, from today, when it's up!
YAY! Happy Oscars everyone!
Unless you went early, today is the day to get out and vote. You can check here to find out where to go, and to get information about the various races going on. And if you're looking for something to whet your whistle afterwards, perhaps a cookie or cupcake would do the trick?
They're from the wonderful Eleni's bakery in New York and are illustrated by me!
The Oscars are tomorrow-- do you have your cookies yet? I do the Best Actor and Actress illustrations every year for Elenis Bakery in New York and its really fun. This year they have cupcakes as well!
In unrelated news, I'm busy updating my website/portfolio and will have a bunch of new work in the coming months. Hence the lack of posts here...
I probably should have posted about these before the conventions...But...I didn't. Never-the-less: the drawings I did of the Presidential Candidates for Eleni's bakery in New York, are now on sale as cookies!
For the last six Oscar seasons, I've done drawings of the Best Actor/Actress nominees for their "Conversation Series" cookies. This is one of my favorite jobs to do every year, so it was really fun to get to do these as well!
I always send my grandmother a box of them, and I think she was excited to have these for the convention. The cookies themselves, besides their obvious novelty factor, are quite tasty--perfect little sugar cookies, with the images printed on sugar paper, which melts in your mouth...
So head on over and pick out your favorite candidate, or maybe his rival?-- Then you can really bite into them! Yum!
