My blog has moved!


I have a spanking new website (yay!) *
I built it with the help of my friend Dustin using squarespace. (which I highly reco!)
  My blog will now live within my site here
I hope you will continue to follow me there to keep up with my latest shenanigans.

As always thanks for your continued interest in my work
plus your encouragement + kind words. 

* Still a bit of fine tuning to do on the site. :-)

 I'm giving away a Large Black bouquet silkscreen print. 

To Enter: Please visit my Instagram

 Winner announced on February 14th. 

 For added good karma: 
Tell me who you are feeling LOVE for right now for making the world better during these troubling times. For me it is all the immigration lawyers who have given their time so freely in airports to help those affected by the Muslim ban plus - All the kick ass companies including Google, Apple + amazon, etsy who have joined the legal brief opposing Trump's ban. 

F---king Beautiful

Paper maché masks that I want to make

 I have been craving to do paper mache for several years now
I long to do something super tactile with flour and newspaper strips
and paint with a big fat paintbrush
Will be freeing methinks!
I figure if I state my intentions here I will be held accountable to act on them. :-)

Mike Mills sketch

Sketch done while listening to a great interview with director Mike Mills + Terry Gross on Fresh Air.
Mike Mills was taking about his new film 20th Century women based which is based on his mom.
I so love her interviews. Excellent company.

Sketch is very much influenced by Saul Steinberg and contains an homage to him.
That is his brush and pen cup in the middle of the sketch.
