Get some holiday shopping done early at Winter Fest at the Brooklyn Friends School this Saturday Dec 6th! 10:30A-5P at 375 Pearl St. in Brooklyn. They'll have local artisan venders, a bouncy castle, plant sale, book fair and karaoke. Plus food vendors like Hill Country BBQ, One Girl Cookie, and many others will keep you coming back for more!
It's fun to exhibit at and go to craft shows like this because there's so much variety! Get a custom sketch or mini comic from me, character prints (FROZEN!) and cupcakes from Nadia Burgess ("ToughSpirit Creations"), and prepare to get cozy with one-of-a-kind quilts, hats, and tights. You can even buy poinsettias there! I'm sure there will be lots of interesting tchotchkes too. Check out the facebook event and see you there!
As always, I'm late at seeing movies by at least a year. But this Thanksgiving my room mate and I finally watched FROZEN! It was pretty good! I like how it emphasized sisterly love over the love of a man. It was structured very differently than other Disney movies because there was no clear villain until the end. Most of the time the "villain" was their situation. Stylistically, it's cool how the snow was rainbow colored reflecting the light and not just white.
But my favorite Disney movie is STILL "The Little Mermaid." Frozen is great, but you can't compare it to the pizazz of the "Under the Sea" animation and song (God, how many animators DID THAT TAKE?).
