Alexa Meade is actually one of my good friends and a brilliant artist. So to see that CNN is even talking about her is amazing:
She paints people and objects to appear like still-life paintings or portraits, and she's really good at it. I feel lucky that she is my friend, as an "artist" (though my writing hasn't gotten me famous yet) and as a person in general.
I'll post about something nerdy later today, I promise!
