A painting completed for the upcoming CCM X SF joint exhibition opening on July 11, 2014 at both the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn, NY and the Stranger Factory Gallery in Albuquerque, NM.  A neat idea - all participating artists are making different paintings for both galleries for openings happening on the same night.

German candy company Katjes has joined forces with organic confection entrepreneur Melissa Snover to create a “The Magic Candy Factory”, a 3D printer that creates custom gummy candy. In addition to having an awesome name, the device enables users to design the gummy candy of their dreams using an intuitive iPad-based interface. The candy is heated during the printing process and then hardens as each layer cools to retain the 3D design.

“While the ingredients are confidential, Snover confirms the candies are lactose, gluten and gelatin-free, and entirely vegan. Delicious designs can be printed from seven different colors and 10 different flavors including mango, apple, blackberry, and extra sour flavors.”

Wow! Hello to all the new people following this blog.

I was gob-smacked when I opened up my Tumblr last night after getting home to find over 2000 likes on my last photo and a ton of messages due to the fact that I was featured on Radar yesterday here. I am still a little speechless.

I will eventually answer all of the messages. In the meantime though, thank you all for the kind messages and love. And thank you Tumblr for featuring my photo and blog!
