Check out this new Pinterest inspired theme I designed – Pinboard. It incorporated infinite scroll as seen on Pinterest site.

Cake Based on Phoenix Illustration

Check out this awesome cake made by Elena based on my Phoenix illustration. According to Elena, it took her about a week, 5 hours each day, to finish it. I’m amazed with the details and colors she input on the work. It depicts the features of the Chinese phoenix. The cake was for a local cake competition. More photos available here.
