Grammy Recognition!

Pacific Mambo Orchestra

In 2011, not long after we met, Jack was working on a design project for Pacific Mambo Orchestra (PMO), a 19-Piece Latin Big Band from San Francisco. A few months prior, a friend invited Jack to see PMO perform in San Francisco. He took his sketchbook and pencil, and did a sketch of the band, representing all 19 members and the lively energy of their music.  They loved it and stayed in touch.

When they were working on their self-produced album, PMO contacted Jack for a logo and used his sketch and designs for their album artwork. PMO_logo

Last year, we were super excited to hear PMO was nominated for a Grammy. Their album was featured on the homepage of iTunes, and we enjoyed seeing both PMO's music and Jack's artwork spread. They won the Grammy for Best Tropical Latin Album!

In Friday's mail, Jack received a certificate of recognition for being a part of the Grammy Award-winning album. PMO has already contacted Jack for future artwork, so there will be more to come!

IMG_7950 Bula family and friends! We're excited to announce that we will temporarily be moving to the island of Taveuni in Fiji!

We will both be working and living at Paradise Taveuni, a resort on the Southern side of Taveuni. Taveuni is the third largest island in Fiji, known as the Garden Island for its flora. Jack will be working as a web developer, and Alise will be teaching the resort owners' children. We could not have dreamed up a more fitting opportunity!

In our free time, we plan to explore vegan food options and growing and composting in Taveuni. We plan to create art, inspired by our experiences. We also plan to do a good bit of exploring, swimming and diving. And of course, we will take heaps of photos and journal along the way so that we can keep this updated.

We'll be taking a break from our Etsy shop but our art and jewelry will still be available in a few locations. Contact us for more details!

With new opportunities come uncertainty, and we’ve been consistently working to embrace the changes and transform our fears into loving situations. We’re blessed to have such a strong support system of family and friends. Alise’s parents are caring for our pup Zoey in California and Jack’s parents are looking out for us in Fiji.

We fly out in July. Until then, we are living and working in the East Bay, getting Zoey settled in with Alise's parents. Stay tuned for updates!

Love, light, and lolomas!
