3.16.11 // !!!inner children united!!!

Ah! I haven't blogged in so long. A lot has happened here in California since my last post! I've been hanging out in my trailer, hanging out with friends, designing t-shirts for an up and coming t-shirt line, painting my car, Skyping with my parents back in Connecticut, working on a awesome vegan food truck called Seabirds, and spending way too much time at Whole Foods (I do a lot of my drawing and doodling there!)

My friends and I have also jumped into the creative deep end. We have so many fun and creative plans and projects in the works - it's really exciting! One such endeavor is an organization called Inner Children United. I've been impressed by organizations like Improv Everywhere and Newmindspace since first learning about them a few years back. They encourage the fun and spontaneous (two things that I can't live without) in everyday life. My friends and I wanted to start something similar here in Orange County, California... thus, Inner Children United was born.

Inner Children United is more than events and members.. it's a movement. It's about getting in touch with the kid that lives in each of us and allowing that kid to take front seat (even if they're under 12 years of age and it's illegal to do so by law... that might only be a law in Connecticut, so that joke might be lost to anyone outside of the state...)

We're working on building up our membership and planning some super exciting events. If you live in Southern California or will be in the area let me know! We'd love to have you in our group. We've also created an Inner Childred United Facebook page and Youtube channel. Why the Youtube page? ...Here's why...

My friend, former fellow Roadie and Inner Children United co-creator, Ray Ricafort created the beat and my friend, fellow Roadie and musician extraordinaire, Mariana Iglesias (aka Audrey & the Deer) took our photos. It was a wonderful collaboration/Roadie reunion! We consider this video a first step.. a launching point to spring off of. We have some big plans for the umbrella of Inner Children United - events, videos, and a public access show to boot. Stay tuned!


  1. Hey, my name is Sarah & we've never met, but I've been following your blog for quite a while now. I love your stop motion animation & type fonts. Let's meet up sometime :) P.S. I just syndicated you on my blog ...

  2. Very cool video Nicole! Can't wait to see what you and Ray come up with for the next one! Have fun, Craig


Thanks for your comments! Each and every one means so much!
