Now, this is one of those pop-up things that we can advocate. The Pop-up Skate bowl.  Quicksilver got together with Autumn and Openhouse Gallery to put this on from August 22nd to the 31st.  I’m sure there’ll be nightly events too.  Stop by at 201 Mulberry Street in Manhattan.

Available at a random point in time today.  This is like printing money for a charity, as all proceeds from this print will go to Rush Arts.

$50, Signed and Numbered Edition of 450

“I chose to illustrate this image of two girls knitting (in a Rush Arts program) because I think it really captures the idea that learning art in schools is about more than crayon drawings, it’s about creativity, something that transcends all class and race boundaries. I think the joy of making something is universal, and it’s an opportunity that every kid should have.”

Mini Marshmallow lamb Cupcakes

marshmallow_lamb_cupcakes

Not normally one for cupcakes but, you could win your way into a chubby girls heart with these.  The texture of the cupcakes got me thinking randomly, has anyone ever seen a cupcake with painkillers on it?  Or even chewable vitamins?  I think they’d be huge internet hit. Anyway, here’s the recipe for the chubby cupcakes.
