BR Cuties

Funny fact: I used to be an Art Director for Gap Inc., which includes Banana Republic, Gap, etc. I am still pretty plugged-in to the brand(s) via friends who still are there, so imagine my delight when this video was sent my way: the new Trina Turk summer collection at BR featuring dogs from the SPCA. Who wouldn't want to adopt these guys n gals? Hello There Cuties!!!   xxxo

Golden Gate Park Cuties

Am back from Chicago Cuties... didja miss me? While I was gone, the Golden Gate Bridge had it's 75th(!) anniversary party and these coyotes pups were born in Golden Gate Park. Although I can walk over to the GGBridge to give it a big congrats, there have been warnings posted to avoid the coyote pups for their own safety... guess we'll have to let a photo say this to them instead: Hello There Cuties!!!   xxxo

Chicago Cutie-Time

I'm off to Chicago today for a family wedding (congrats Lou and Kristin!), check out a museum or two and watch my beloved Cubs win a game (eternal optimist). Emme has her uncle's checking in on her, and I have a feeling that upon my return I will find a very fat and happy bunny from eating far too many treats.

Have a wonderful long weekend Cuties and before I take-off a question: think my plane ride will be like the one Hello Kitty is taking?   xxxo

Presidio Heights Cutie

Outside my office window for the past week or so have been two birds that look similar to this guy above. Mr. and Mrs. Sparrow appear to be building a nest very close to my apt., and keep hopping up on the fence looking into the room where I am. They truly are out of Snow White with their movements and adorable-ness. Hello There Cuties!!!   xxxo

52Aces Week Cutie: Day 5

I gotta confess I'm a bit sad that 52Aces Week is ending today on Hello There Cutie, so chose this broken hearted illustration. Done by Andreas Trenker out of Italy, his work is influenced by a passion for street art, politics and experimental techniques. Andreas usually illustrates topics with a social background and cultural progress.... and based upon this guy, darn adorable! Hello There Cutie!!!   xxxo

52Aces Cutie Week: Day 1

This week is all about 52Aces on Hello There Cutie. 52Aces is a deck consisting of 52 extremely different cards with each designed by an international designer or illustrator in their distinct style. The set is being sold in a limited edition of 999 here, and a great idea for my 08/08 birthday gift (subtle hint). Now here's our first card...

Dr. Alderete is an illustrator and designer who works and lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. You might recognise his style from one of the over 80 cd covers he has designed for music. All I know is this birdman and his lady friend are very Hello There Cutie!!!   xxxo

Pikachu is a Real Cutie

I recently spied this on Devient Art and got a big smile: Pikachu (tha adorable character from Pokeman) imagined as a real cat. This illustrator totally "got" the curiousity, cuteness and all of Pikachu and I'm rather impressed... how about you? Hello There Cutie!   xxxo

Nicopanda Cutie

And who are these cuties you might be asking? It's Nicopanda, the mascot of NY designer Nicola Formichetti who will be hitting Hong Kong this week for a pop-up shop at Lane Crawford. Shoppers can ogle at Lady Gaga costumes on display, and purchase an array of products—dolls, notebooks, umbrellas, prints—built around the Nicopanda character. This wide-eyed bear is already so popular in China a huge crowd clutching Nicopanda's greeted Formichetti at the airport... watch out Hello Kitty & a big Hello There Cutie to this guy!!!   xxxo

Sponge Cuties

The other evening I had some friends over for supper and to my delight, one offered to do dishes while I fixed dessert. As there is no dishwasher in my place (except me!) I was thrilled but also pondered this: if I had Hello There Cutie worthy sponges on hand, would more guests volunteer to do my dishes? Hmmm, might need to go to the store to pick some up in the name of science!!!   xxxo

May Day Cuties

Happy May Day!!! I found this on Etsy, which as we know is a treasure trove for things I didn't know I needed! From the Depression era, this poster was made by the US government and I am pondering what they are telling us: to feed a child? Get a vaccination? Or something else? Well whatever the message, a big Hello There Cutie to a brilliant illustation very much of that era!
