Happy Halloween

Last Tuesday Society

On the 31st I went to the launch party at the Last Tuesday Society for Lily Vanilli's book The Zombie Ate My Cupcake. Lily Vanilli specializes in cakes that look spooky & grotesque and her cookbook includes "25 deliciously weird cupcake recipes." You can see some of her creations below:

I also spent some time looking around the Last Tuesday Society's "Little Shop of Horrors," a crazy collection of skulls, bones, taxidermy, mutant stuffed animals, and strange books like Sex Instruction for Irish Farmers.

"The Future Can Wait"

A yearly contemporary art exhibition dealing with gothic & grotesque themes. This year's installation was in the cavernous basement of the Shoreditch Town Hall. I was inspired by the beautiful interaction between light and dark, life and death, and love and loss. The show also renewed my obsession with glass.
