TODAY'S MENU {Frosted Circus Animals}

One of my oldest friends is a soon to be married woman. It was at her bridal shower last night where 25 lovely ladies gathered to watch her open presents and reluctantly read her cards aloud. Among your classic cake server, lingerie and massage oils there was in fact one fabulous gift that caught my attention instantly, "An Illustrated Life" by Todd Oldham. This beautiful coffee table book captures the essence of illustrator Charley Harper (not to mention my love for animals).

Harper was known for his minimal realism and would describe his style as, "I don't try to put everything in, I try to leave everything out. I never count the feathers in the wings; I just count the wings."
