What do Street Art and Espresso have in common?  For starters, they both will keep you up all night. And after a good dose of both, you’re guaranteed to start thinking much more clearly.  When I’m out taking a walk with a coffee in tow and I turn the corner and see a piece of street art that moves me, my day is complete.  San Diego has some ahh-mazing pieces.  Let me know when you’re ready for a tour.

A big, caffeinated thanks to Phil Defalco Photography for hitting the streets with me. What music moves me when I need to create some art?  Beat Panther baby!

    Oh my gosh, I love this!! I don’t even know where to start! The shoes, the Vintage Sugarcube graffiti, the spray paint—and of course the brownies! They look like the perfect late-night snack for all artistic endeavors.

    Loving the stickers, too! :D

    MMMMM! Chocolate and expresso, sweet, rich, dark and just a wonderful combination. How do you know everything I love, week after week? I think Paula and Ina and some of the other Food Network Stars should start worrying about you…

    Hi, Jenny. Now I know what keeps you going….I love the Banksy-esque convergence of Sin Diego, brownies, street art, and the graphic of you. Have any of those editors finally gotten their acts together to give you a regular feature yet?!?
