Honored and excited to have illustrated this week’s cover of Time Out New York! This city will always have a little piece of my Cali girl heart.

Banks + a glass of wine = me trying to act sexy in my chair while I work. Spoiler alert: it’s not sexy at all.

"Fair winds and following seas" is a nautical phrase of good luck—a blessing as it were—as the person, group, or thing it is said to departs on a voyage in life.

I am SO excited to officially announce that the Daily Dishonesty book is coming out in Fall 2014!

"Daily Dishonesty pays homage to the little lies we tell ourselves just to make it through the day. Based on author Lauren Hom’s work from the blog of the same title, the book features a colorful collection of 150+ funny & beautifully illustrated lies. Covering topics such as diets, breakups, friendship, growing up, slacking off, guilty pleasures, and more, these hand-lettered, sassy mantras are both relatable and tongue-in-cheek. Daily Dishonesty is a stylish and chic feel-good gift book that reveals, plays with, and makes light of life’s little quirks.”

As always, thank you for all the love, laughs, and support over the past year. This blog and book wouldn’t have been possible without my lovely friends (aka my muses), family, and followers. My parents taught me that I should always tell the truth, but I guess I found a way to prove them wrong. They also told me that I have to put on pants every day…

Keep an eye out for this little blue book in stores later in the year!

The Gummy Bear Revolution by Lauren Hom

American, 1990-present

Assorted candy on gingerbread

After consuming numerous glasses of wine, Hom decided to take creative license at the annual family gingerbread house making party. The red fondant represents the blood dripping from the captive gingerbread men, rendered defenseless with royal icing and impaled by the meticulously hand-cut licorice spears given to the gummy bears. The gummy army, though fierce and vicious, hung a small wreath in the spirit of Christmas; a small nod to humanity in an otherwise disturbing work of art.

“Thinking of me
while inside another woman
must feel like sitting in the new neighbor’s dining room
saying you preferred the people who lived there
before.”
