What a trip!

I've got to share some highlights of my trip to LA last week. When I was asked to submit artwork for the iam8bit show, my husband and I decided to make a trip out of it. As soon as the opening date was confirmed, we booked our hotel reservations, bought plane tickets, and secured spots at a taping of Conan!

Here's a quick video of me being interviewed by Aaron Bleyaert for the Team Coco Fan Friday! Everyone at Conan was SO NICE. That's what stuck with us. Here you go...




Instead of boring everyone with a play by play, I'll just share some photos of the trip. 

Alice has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So there.

This is something I had to see in LA. It's a wall that Elliott Smith took a photo in front of for the album "Figure 8". I stood there and cried like a baby! All the lyrics people had written up there...it was touching.

Here's a photo of me and "Billy Wins", one of my pieces in the SUPER iam8bit show featuring Billy Mitchell on a DK skin rug.

I'm playing Galaga, projected onto a giant screen at the SUPER iam8bit show! The high score won the actual game, and I was just a *little* short!

"Dust of Hyrule", my other piece in the SUPER iam8bit show. It played ocarina music from the very first 8bit Legend of Zelda NES game.

My Andy and Conan dolls were hoping to meet Team Coco!

Paul and I on the set of Conan!

Look! Aaron Bleyaert (Bley) and I after he interviewed me for Team Coco's Fan Friday!

Oh yeah! Those smiles started to hurt after a while and lasted for hours!


This is just a random RED VELVET PANCAKES shot. The Griddle Cafe in LA: you must go.

Do you know how long I had to wait to take this picture? OK,  two minutes, but it seemed like a while.
It was an amazing trip! I loved LA. Coming from Austin, where the high was 107 all last week, the weather was absolutely spectacular and all of the places we went were beautiful. I'll go back anytime!

  3. Randomly stumbled on your blog this morning, while trying to figure out a new project for the day, and I was shocked to realize that you were one of the contributors to the iam8bit art show! I was just there last weekend, and I really admired your pieces, especially Link! I guess yarn was on my mind, because your work kept catching my attention that day. Apparently I was inspired, because I picked up crocheting this weekend, and since Saturday, I've finished three pieces. Thank You for sharing your stuff at that show!
