Retro Destination: StarLux Hotel in Wildwood, New Jersey

Starlux @ Night

Full Disclosure: I have not stayed at the StarLux Hotel yet, I have only admired it from afar. I’ve wanted to stay here since our first visit to Wildwood about 10 years ago. I try to get some pictures of it every time we go to Wildwood and this time I was lucky to get some night pictures. I love the retro architecture and the neon lights.

I would love to get up in the morning and look out at the ocean and the Wildwood Sign from the hotel. Will I get to stay at the StarLux next summer? I can just imagine the amazing photos I can take in and around the hotel. From pictures I’ve seen online there are lava lamps in the room – another great reason for me to go!

Two Years of Through The Lava Lamp

Still life with Lava Lamp

Today is the two year anniversary of my blog. This was the first picture that I posted. I’ve learned a lot as I’ve gone along and went from just posting artwork from my Flickr page to creating tutorials and writing about other people’s artwork. What would you like to read more about?

iPhone Art using Toonpaint and Strip Design.

Shortly after finding the Toon Paint app (which I love) I found the Strip Design app.  With this app you can easily create comic strips using your photos or artwork.  I’ve been experimenting with using the artwork from my photo library using unrelated photos to create short stories.    I’ve been thinking about doing my life story, in no particular order.
