Catching up the last summer sunshine

Beginning of Highline at 41st Street

Mid-way Highline got the coffee/light sandwhich/ice cream
Now that I realize, after I have experienced that Highline is the great way & fastest way walking down to SOHO, I use this route alot these days! It has great view, cool breeze, no signals. just great.

It was beautiful weather on August.20.2011
Cool breeze blowing on Highline made even more perfect for enjoying the outdoor activity.
So, I took lot of photographs wherever I went, which turned out great :D

Rain + Sunrays

Rainbow over Manhattan-

I didn't have a camera with me, so I couldn't take it,
but these pictures are from Youtube.

Double Rainbow in NYC 2011

On my way home, it took twice as much as normally it takes.
The road was very congested.
By the time when the bus was getting through Lincoln tunnel
(took about 15-20minutes),
there was beautiful triple rainbow over Manhattan.
It was bright and very vivid all the way to the top.

Then, I remembered Lord's promise to Noah by showing a rainbow that
there will be no more of flooding ever it was.

Then, it triggered my mind, how big that rainbow could be...
Would it be the biggest rainbow ever on Earth?
I don't know, but it would have been the perfect and clearest rainbow ever
since there would have been ZERO pollution.

Human is a Lovable being

I always wanted to do this project for my sake.
When I was at RISD, there was a half-Korean fabric business owner on Thayer, Providence.
They re-located to other city in Rhode Island, but she made a T-shirt 
written in Korean, "Human" and "Love" almost seeing as two ways.

(In Korean, human and love are written with a slight change of alphabet.) 

I see people living with lack of true love, and it makes me sad because
we tend to fill up trash or filthy thoughts when we feel lack of something.
Every human being has selfishness as a foundation in each person's character,
but once you feel loved, that love flows to the person you want to share love
and it continues so on and on.

I am not completely done with this design, but designed several different ways
to see which one addresses more effectively and less wordy.

Human is a lovable being.

"It is love, not reason, that is stronger than death."
"It is sad not to be loved, but it is much sadder not to be able to love."
--Thomas Mann

Isaac Mizrahi Runway Show FALL 2011

All the fun were conjoined with smart concept of walking with real poodles and
patterns on cakes. Absolutely stunning!

I work as print and pattern for Isaac Mizrahi Live, QVC.
But, Isaac Mizrahi Collection definitely was fresh.
You can see his amazing previous works

Snow pattern

long time no posting...
But here we go again :)

It snowed A LOT this winter!
According to the weather cast, 
it snowed about 60 inch during this whole winter of 2010.

But, winter is winter, gotta enjoy what's given :)

This is the most honest pattern created by the nature.
 So pure and honest.
