blue pill wall art…

February 5, 2013

…but before that, an announcement: It’s official, my Etsy store is up and running!

I’m selling the same two cards from the Prints and Cards page plus a new 4-pack of hand-lettered thank you notecards!

OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming, I finished one of the two calcium pill projects!


I hung it above a piece by my talented friend, Desi Gunz.


And of course I wanted to paint ALL THE THINGS when I had the spray can out, which is how this blue pumpkin happened…


Cute, non?

wishbone talisman

February 1, 2013

Here’s the beginning of a little project. My husband and I only recently tackled the challenge of learning how to roast a chicken. I feel like we are a little late to the game here, but it still felt like we’d accomplished an “adult thing” so I saved the wishbone for the sake of nostalgia. My plan is to dress it up ála Alisa Burke’s Altered Driftwood.


Check this space for the result in the near future!

gif from the met

January 4, 2013

Things started off on the wrong foot at the Met here in New York when the door guard made me throw away $10 worth of fancy-pants sandwiches I had in my purse for later in the day. They wouldn’t even us check them in a bag or coat! Whatever, jerks.

Fortunately, things changed for the better as we wandered around, amazed by how much there was to see and how little of it our tiny brains were going to be able to take in.

I learned that for the most part I really like the work of Paul Klee.

I also made this gif in front of pieces by an artist that I was too caught up in the process to write down. Bad Cat.

Here’s a sneak peek of an ongoing project.


calcium pill wall art

November 29, 2012

Here’s a status update on a sort of weird project that I’ve undertaken.

My gigantic Costco jar of calcium supplements recently expired…


… so of course I decided to make an art project out of them. Right? Like normal humans do.


Once I’ve got them all glued down I’m going to paint it and see how it looks. Stay tuned for the final product.
