What was the most memorable piece you have worked on? Every piece I work on is the most memorable piece while I’m working on it. Then on to the next one.
Where can we find your work? My web portfolio – AliceMeichi.com. Additionally, I will be showing a piece in “The Spirit Animal” show at The White Rabbit’s White Box gallery in SoHo, NYC from November 2011 through December 2011. I was also commissioned for a pin-up to appear on the pages of Image Comics’ Elephantmen #36.
Where are you based? N.Y.C.
What was the inspiration behind this piece? Snow
What is your artistic background? I design a fabulous jewelry and headpiece collection called Mordekai by Ken Borochov.
How different is it creating a work of art on something like these goggles from a standard 2D canvas? With 2D you’re not 100% certain as to how the project will come out. Therefore, the fact that I am working with these materials and customizing the goggles with my hands makes the whole process much more tangible and immediate.
What was the most memorable piece you have worked on? The Princess Peggi Crown. It was so much work, but it was well worth it. Kanye West bought it!

Where are you based?
What was the inspiration behind this piece? The Swiss Alps and a daydream of me screaming while going down the slopes.
What is your artistic background? Self-taught. I have always had a love of comic books and cartoons and graffiti. In the last few years, assemblage and folk art have found their way into my creative process.
How different is it creating a work of art on something like these goggles from a standard 2D canvas? Very different. When I sat down to do this, I found the challenge of the limited amount of space and the curves of the lenses. But I love a good challenge and found this project to be fulfilling.
What was the most memorable piece you have worked on? Creating my own toy (which is still in the works for next year).

Where are you based? Los Angeles, but at the moment – the road
What was the inspiration behind this piece? I’m a touring musician, and I had to create this piece while on the road. I wanted to represent that in my work, and as a result, decided to create the piece entirely out of things you can find in a gas station. The feathers were cut from Solo cups and the gold wing shapes are maple leaf-shaped car air fresheners cut up and painted. Dental floss, and even a deck of playing cards, made their way into the design. I was inspired by the landscapes I’m traveling through, the Southwest and the rich colors of autumn on the East Coast. I was also inspired by the Halloween holiday and was itching to make an elaborate mask of some kind. And my last name means “little bird” in German – I’ve always been drawn to them – so it seemed to fit.
What is your artistic background? Art is my first language and has always been my means of making sense of the world. Professionally, I’m a singer-songwriter and have been a touring recording artist since high school, taking a few years in between to study fine arts at university. I design all of my album art, and I released my third album this summer along with signature series sunglasses I designed with Oakley in tandem. To me, in the case of music, art and fashion, to speak of one is to speak of the others.
