Interview with Fashion Illustrator: Dominic Gomez

Fashion Illustration Good morning friends, I am excited to share this interview with you! Dominic is a very talented artist and fashion illustrator.  He volunteers much of his time to advancing the fashion industry here in Seattle.  I  met him at Seattle Fashion Week last year, and have become a huge fan of his work.  He is on the board of directors for this amazing fashion extravaganza, and does a great job marketing the show.  I am really excited for this year's event. It's coming up March 10-12: if you are in the area- get your tickets now, they go fast! Now grab your coffee, sit back and learn about a day in the life of a fashion illustrator!

The Seattle Meowtropolitan: Cats and a Cuppa Jo

Photography: Valerie Hansen Catpuccino anyone?  If you are a lover of coffee and cats, then  "Meowtropolitan"  cafe is a must see destination! The Wallingford area of Seattle is home to this new coffee shop and cattery. Cat cafes are quite popular in Europe, and are starting to gain popularity here in the states. I've loved cats all my life. I think I was born with the cat lover gene, if there is such a thing! My fondest childhood memory of my dad, was him carting his cat along with him everywhere he went. When I heard the Meowtropolitan was coming to town, I knew I had to get there asap!
