The tag line on the new book from Herve Tullet should read: […]

Pinkalicious Comes to Nintendo DS

The best-selling, color-coordinated series of books by Victoria Kann makes it’s entrance into video game land this month with Pinkalicious: It’s Party Time.

The Alphabet City Word Art

I make a modest living organizing letters – using a variety of fonts – into words and phrases.  Some are poignant, most are just silly.  I sell these textual word art designs on a variety of products – tees, mugs, iPhone cases, buttons, etc. But of the thousands of designs […]

iPhone App for Kids Review: Faces iMake

Collage art is pretty darn cool, but maybe you don’t have what amounts to a flea market full of odds & ends to make such art.  And, even if you do, maybe you don’t want your kids playing with THAT much glue. No worries.  The Faces iMake iPhone App allows […]
