California Uber Ovalles

Today I want to share with you, artist, Mitsy Ávila Ovalles , who probably has one of the coolest myspace pages I’ve ever seen… and fantastic blog… It’s all a very cool mixture of digital and hand-drawn work. She personalize it by sharing her love of baseball, and adding in her own [...]

The Intelligistas

The other night Beauty & the Geek aired the season premiere. It kind of struck a cord with me because, well, because there were a few statements aired that alluded to a common belief that because a woman is interested in fashion and makeup, that she lacked intelligence.
