The Zzz Team

My newly oranized team after my shelf gave way.

A few casualties... The most painful, losing my plants, Vicki and Mo. They were crushed under my books:(

Mo was really gone but I'm still nursing Vicki... Let's see, you can do it Vicki!!!

Metal Chick 101 with Kelly "The Metal Master" Malone

Kelly Malone is the owner of Workshop, the DIY haven in San Francisco. I walked into this space and was filled with ideas, I just wanted to create...not just photos, but fluffy felt stuffed toys, light bulb terrariums and a screen print designs for t-shirts! This place is industrial meets heavy metal and a ton of other things quirky cool and exciting.
I read about Kelly's story and how she came up with Workshop and was instantly intrigued, I wanted to know more and I wanted her in the photo for sure. I met with Kelly who shared her inspiration, hobbies, favorite things and I quickly learned that she was the ultimate metal chick. That's how I came up with this idea of making her this metal master craftswoman showing how to create the ultimate metal chick. If the Workshop offers everything from sewing 101 to heavy metal aerobics, I figured a Metal Chick 101 class themes photo would fit right in
The Workshop and Kelly Malone stand for some true SF qualities, creativity, community and resilience.
Thanks Kelly! You were owned it from the very first shot!
Cheers to you and Workshop:)
