My favorite paintings from my recent trip to The Louvre.

Something ain’t right here.


Who said that?


The Renaissance Super-Friends


You left your keys in the door.


It’s not polite to stare.

New York 4 Oklahoma

NY4OKWhen our friend and client Eli Zoller approached us to donate some time and webspace to a charity project he was working on, we jumped at the opportunity. Eli has helped to organize a benefit concert to raise funds for relief from the recent tornado disasters in Oklahoma. Here is some info about the concert, please go support the cause if you are in New York!

On June 17th, New York will be coming together for a one night only, star-studded benefit concert to raise funds for the public school art programs completely devastated by the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma.

The national coverage of the destruction has touched us all; the seventh grader standing in the rubble of her school and longingly pointing to where her choir room used to be. We, as artists, understand at such a deep level that expression through art can educate, enlighten, and heal. Just as the first grade teacher had her children singing and playing as loud as they could to drown out and comfort them during the tornado, fine arts programs can help the children to process what happened and be excited about going back to school in Oklahoma. But unfortunately, we all know far too well that arts programs will be amongst the last to be rebuilt…but YOU can do something about that.

On June 17th we will be joining the power that is our artistic community for those kids in Oklahoma. Live music performed by stars of Film, TV and Broadway, a silent auction, and raffled prizes will provide a high-spirited and entertaining evening.

All proceeds from this night will be donated to Disaster Relief for Fine Arts in Oklahoma.

Please join us at NY4OK: A Benefit Concert for Oklahoma Tornado Relief– your help will make a huge difference.

Altitude Design Summit

alt lake city

I am so excited to head to AltSummit this year! My wife, Chelsea, is speaking on a panel about Pinterest and DIY’s; I am so proud of her and how far Lovely Indeed has come over the past couple of years.

I am super pumped to meet a bunch of new people and hopefully help some bloggers revamp their web presence. I also get to hang out with a few of our clients face to face! Both Amber from Damask Love and Rachel from Lupa & Pepi will be there. If you’d like to follow along on our adventures this year, we will be posting all weekend long on Instagram (@ryan_foy and @chelsea_costa).

A Visit To New York

A Christmas Story

I took a little trip to NYC last week to see Nick in A CHRISTMAS STORY. The show was absolutely fantastic! It is always a treat to see a friend performing on a Broadway stage. It was a week full of shows, catching up on everything I have missed since the move to LA. I saw BRING IT ON, ONCE, ANNIE, THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, and the extra special treat of seeing my good friend Laurel Harris play Eva in EVITA.


Being back in New York was a nice reminder of everything I love about the city and how much I liked living there. I miss our friends and the community, but I don’t miss the MTA and the tiny apartments. Ideally, I want to be living a bi-coastal life; spending half the year in California and half the year in New York. Let’s see if I can make it happen.

Mac and Cheese and Cats


2 things happened today.  First, Peter figured out how to decapitate the toy on top of his favorite scratching post.


The second thing?  Working on an awesome recipe for Mac & Cheese for a little 4th of July contest we’re having.  Spicy Pumpkin Mascarpone and Cheddar Mac & Cheese.  This one was good.  Next one will be better.

Pumpkin Mac & Cheese

I promise a much more interesting post tomorrow! And now, a beer. Ahhhh.
