Allora with Beatrice Tosti di Valminuta

I am very grateful to my dear friends Julio & Beatrice of Il Bagatto/Il Posto Accanto who support my balls and shower me constantly with love in form of yummy food at either their restaurants or our Monday night family dinners. Here is a video of Beatrice making my favorite brunch dish Uova in Trippa.

Showed up to my friend Bill's party and did not realize my cake balls were going to be the "birthday cake!"  So Bill's lovely lady Yuki, art director extraordinaire,  did some amazing last minute foil sculpting ;)

My Balls Love Amy Sedaris (Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People)

I did a mini-collaboration with the lovely Amy Sedaris for her new book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People in a section called "Out of this World: Space Balls and Blast Offs."  Our friends Tony Longoria, Todd Oldham (tin foil bracelet), Adam Selman (costumes), and Zaldy (wheelchair backpack) also contributed arts & crafts pieces as well. It is HIGH-LARIOUS!

Here are some photos of the book:

Naughty Librarian Art: Brian Dettmer's Book Autopsies

The thought of tearing a book apart would make most librarians cringe, maybe even scream, but Brian Dettmer's art of "Book Qutopsies" is breathtaking.

Below are some cute vintage ads from the 1950s and 1960s on ice cream that caught my eye"
