Hey there! I’m Laura Neiman, the chick behind this one-woman show, Dude, That’s Dope!
I started out writing for the web many years ago, doing lots of freelance writing gigs while raising my two sets of twins. “Mommy Blogging” turned into brand ambassadorship, with a little autism-awareness thrown in. This is actually the third version of this blog – previous aliases were LaLaGirl and Housewife Hellraiser. I decided to branch out and embrace my true love, which is art – inspired by music, people, nature, and all things super rad.
Nowadays, in addition to informative posts about local events and venues, you’ll find a whole lot of cool stuff that I’ve made! I love drawing and painting, and I love even more when my artwork ends up on funky greeting cards, totebags, and bumper stickers. My current crush is watercolor and hand lettering! I also dabble in pins and patches. Stay tuned, people, ’cause this shit is about to get real!
