May 16, 2014

Here is some more brush lettering practice. I think “asshat” has got to be one of the best insults out there.

This one is for you ilabelu. #asshat #lettering

Taking phrase suggestions if you’ve got ’em.

Keeping on with the irreverence, this gif cracks me up.

make cool shit or look at cool shit?

April 29, 2014

I am the WORST at falling into the internet wormhole of wasting time. Sometimes it feels like I’ll read articles on ANYTHING.

Am I preparing to be a Jeopardy contestant?

No.

Then why am I boning up on national crime stories, buzzfeed listicles, Guardian.uk human interest pieces and literally any other article with a title that captures my attention?

That said, when I caught myself in an internet time-suck loop for the eleventy billionth time I decided to do something about it. After surgically removing my eyes from the screen and prying my atrophied hand off the mouse, I did some laundry, ran some errands and painted this piece.

make cool shit

 

Make cool shit or look at cool shit? It’s easy for me to rationalize the absurd amounts of time I spend reading shit online as self-education but the truth of the matter is that every minute spent on some dumb site is one that I’m not painting, drawing or otherwise creating. To make it abundantly clear, I mounted it to the top of my monitor so that it will loom over me when I think I need to check Facebook again.

Here are a couple of detail shots.

If on my deathbed I regret that I didn’t spend more time online then slap me silly and call me Susan.

Spring DIY dye project

April 24, 2014

If you follow my Instagram feed you saw that the other day I broke out the RIT dye to spruce up a white slipcover and some blah pillowcases within my immediate craft trajectory.

I dyed the pillowcases orange and then dip-dyed them and the slipcover with a deeper orange.

I’m so pleased with how everything turned out, especially the pillowcases. Maybe it’s just Spring enacting it’s magic on me but the combination of oranges and our blue bedspread feels tropical and that makes me happy.

A Bartender’s Tale

January 23, 2014

I am in no way affiliated with Jack Daniels or Brooklyn Magazine but I wanted to share the animation contest that they’re having  because it is so great. It combines two of my favorite things, which are funny stories (told from the perspectives of 8 different bartenders) and animation!

These 8 great videos are in the running. The winning bartender will get to tour the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN (WHAT ABOUT THE ANIMATORS?!).

“The Trouble With Pee Wee” featuring Jesse Sullivan, animated by Sam Ferri

“The Pride of Brother Paul” featuring Jeffery Yokum, animated by Andrew Zimbelman

“Fairytale of Brooklyn” featuring Mary Guiteras, animated by Danielle Ash (this one is even stop-motion!)

“Snowbunnies, Pirates, and Painters Oh My!” featuring Rusty James, animated by Erica PĂ©rez

“The Regular” featuring Jan Bell, animated by Marina Gagarina

“The Puppy Always Knocks Twice” featuring Diane O’Debra, animated by Leah Shore

“The Third Man” featuring Selma Slebiak, animated by Jake Nelson

“Vince’s Birthday” featuring Danny Hastings, animated by Zack Williams

You can vote on which one you think should win by clicking here but be sure to get your opinion logged by January 29 because that’s the last day they’ll be taking votes before announcing the winner at an event in Williamsburg on January 30.
