Justina and I had another solid seminar last weekend for The Creative Residency. This time, it took place at Nuclear Family's creative space in the Arts District of Los Angeles. It's a great space for workshops, events or creative collaborations. So hit them up if you need a space!

Our next seminar, Intro To Getting A Book Deal is October 12th in Los Angeles and it'll be taught by Justina. She has lots of experience with getting book deals. I mean, she's got a book coming out next spring that's being published by Abrams.

And now, meet our fantastic fellows below!

Snapping portraits can be tricky because most people aren't comfortable in front of the lens, myself included. So to break the ice and set them at ease, I like to create fun scenarios while I snap. Like...

The meet-the-parents-and-I-baked-my-special-peach-crumble-pie-look!

The I-had-two-too-many-mimosas-this-morning-and-I'm-fun-and-fabulous-look!

The stride-by-look.

The I-woke-up-like-dis look! And yes, with purples nails and fuchsia lips. Fierce, gurrrl!

And our smile-now-cry-later-looks! Ha!

Then, we put our students to work.

We also used some of Joy's fun tableware from her Oh Joy! for Target line.

Yummy pastries from Proof Bakery and The Village Bakery.

Nuclear Family haa excellent taste!
