Another Year Over, And A New Ones Just Begun

Holy Smokes, Happy Twenty-Ten!!

It's hard to believe another year has passed, and what a year it was! I started this blog a little over a year ago (Dec. 1, '08 was my first post) and that's just seems crazy to me!



I filled another sketch book with ideas - some good, some bad, some ugly! It takes about a year for each to be completely saturated with my scribbles and scraps, and looking through really takes me back to those certain times. 2009 was a good year...





I had my solo show at Thinkspace Gallery in April...



I had my silly face plastered on a wall with some gorgeous Hurley folks at the beach where I live...





Projects with fantastic companies like Planet Illogica, Hurley, Gelaskins, IMP Clothing, 686 Snowboards, Baby Tattoo Books, Clandestine Clothing...

Features in Hi Fructose Magazine, My Name Is Magazine, Baby Boss Magazine, Edgy Cute for Mark Batty Publishing & Harry Saylor, and much more to come...





Giveaways here at "Sweet by Brandi Milne" to show my appreciation of all y'all that come visit and play with me...











A few creations that kept me sane...















Some of the lovely people I'm so stoked to connect with in this world...



Hawaii...



And finished with a WONDERFUL Christmas...





Kicking off the new year with some more secrets and projects. I have a few things in the works and a few more in mind....



Ima dive in to my next written/illustrated projects - crazy nuts ridiculousness...



Because why shouldn't I?



There mine...



they're inside me...



they make me happy.





CAN'T WAIT for my solo show in June at Corey Helford Gallery, it's gonna be my latest and GREATEST show of all time...it's bursting outta my ribs as we speak!!

My ambitions are tingling and making me insane on this very first day of the next decade. Imunna get my work out to every corner of the world, London, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Mexico, Japan, New Zealand - everywhere. I'm gonna work like there's no tomorrow, I'm gonna take every chance there is to take, every idea - and push it to the limit. I'm gonna be free in my own world, I'm gonna pull out all the stops and challenge myself til I'm exhausted to the bone. Why not? Why wouldn't we all?

Here's to you, 2010, and all the people along for the ride!!!
