i've been waiting for you.

raccoon just moved in down the street. he's not very friendly. but he can't wait to meet you. really. you guys are going to be great friends.

don't worry. he has an eye condition where he can't blink. it just looks like he's staring.

not super. not a hero.

FUCK YOU, apple.

horse just spent his whole fucking paycheck on an iphone, too bad his huge-ass hooves can't hit the fucking keys. all alone, with no way to call for help. shit.

p.s. horse is really mint colored and the background should be gray but my scanner is a successful as three-legged hamster running a marathon. sorry.

Party Rats

these guys put together quite a nice banner. though i thought they would be a little more festive. fail.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009


friday the high is set to be 36 degrees in chicago. friday is also the day i'll be back in the city. back to my chilly hobbit hole. shown here.

maybe, then, i can cut out this guy. i'm guessing most chicago rats have substance abuse problems.

friends of a feather

an example of just one of the v-tines handed out this weekend

in other news.....
katharine and i were in such a frenzy to get sugar and alcohol into our bodies on v-day that we grabbed boxes of conversation hearts, only to realized once we opened them up that they were completely in spanish. AMIGO.

1/15 scale tee-pee.

initial design.
i.e. scraps of sketchbook paper stick-glued together.

And you better believe there will be some major interior decorating going on. i hope the loveseat i picked out fits.

if paper had monetary value. hrm.

t vs. reality

in my mind, it makes sense that wings of birds are just individual feathers. no lie.

here's a nice bald eagle I fashioned from some paper.

by the way, there are 3-d paper-pieces in the works as well. wait for it.

I like spirit animals. mine, moths. if you haven't noticed, this is a fox.

So, I've decided to embark on the wonderful world of cut-paper. time-consuming and unnecessary. but i think its quite nice. I started and finished the oil tanker tonight. The igloo I made within the last couple of weeks. They are both part of a larger collection or story, something that will be created in the future.

oh yeah, let me just add, my camera is a piece of shit. sorry.

Vestibule; a gallery.

I'm starting a gallery. it's in my apartment. come over and i'll show you.

artist submission forms to follow.
