Anybody with artistic ambitions is always trying to reconnect with the way they saw things as a child.
- Tim Burton
When I was 8 years old I started my first business. J & A's Unique Glitter Items. I remember beaming with pride when I came up with the name. My bestie (the J) and I would decorate generic office labels and paper reinforcements with glitter and puffy paint. We had real business cards and we carefully packaged each purchase with (hand) shredded tissue paper. It was legit. Our best customer was J's uncle. He lived in West Hollywood, drove a Jeep, and had a hoop earring... so we were obviously very, very cool.
I gotta tell you, the fun of decorating white office labels has not waned a bit. I did forgo the puffy paint and glitter, but that was a personal choice... please feel free to get your J & A glam on.
The design concept for these geometric castles was inspired by Mary Blair's It's a Small World and Paul Klee's Castle and the Sun.
