how this all started......


on a rainy, cool friday, we strolled into the strand bookstore in new york city not knowing what was awaiting us. besides the fact that there are 18 miles of books in this store, inspiration is all over the place on the second floor....the art books!!!!! we climbed the stairs and started perusing the shelves and tables filled with all sorts of eye candy....little did we know that a book...the garden of eye candy would catch both us off guard.....elise started looking at it first and i also became enamored with the book full of illustrations.......we BOTH decided that we HAD to have this book.......we then...still standing in the bookstore came up with the idea of doing a dual blog and creating art...inspired by or from the book in our own style or of that of the artist...we even thought that we could do a show of the works once we were done....we are both VERY excited about the idea........so we had a plan....now all we had to do was execute it and get to work...and that is now where we are today......we are not limiting ourselves to the medium we work in....the approach etc ....it is all our call....the only thing we have to live up to is the deadline that we set......our goal is not only to show the finished work.....but to show the inspiration piece or pieces by the artist, the process, and then maybe even chat a bit about what we had in mind while working on the project.....so not only will you get to see the finished work but you will also "get in our heads" a bit....scary i know!!!!!........so get ready world....we are now entering the garden of eye candy....in 3.....2.....1.......
