swing sets and prints
I added a few of my new pieces to my etsy store, more to follow! Also, I am going to be adding quite a few originals!
sorry for so little posting, i’ve got projects coming out the ears! If you’re in the Portland area, I will be at Urban Outfitters (23rd ave. location) tomorrow (saturday) with many prints and possibly a few originals. UO is having a benefit for the Oregon food bank with many Portland artists in the store selling their wares as well as a performance by local band Archeology.

weekend of superheroes
meet lightening bolt and web boy…and not pictured, the biggest super hero: dad, daddy, doo doo, chocolate eyes. Thank you for being such an awesome dad to our kids! And to my dad, for being such a huge inspiration!
A new batch of lovely desktop wallpapers are now available over at kindred! I’m loving these two by Alicia Bock and Traci French.
pretty pretty packages
Don’t you love it when pretty things arrive in the mail? I have plans for these…
Currently obsessed with
the art of Nicole Poko since seeing it the other day over at design milk. She freezes paint and then lets it melt, creating beautiful abstract paintings. I was so enamoured, that I immediately went and froze some paint. Then I let the kids go to town placing their paint ice cubes where they may. The melting process was really fascinating, we all had fun watching their pieces change. I think we are framing and giving to grandpa for father’s day this weekend.
oh yeah, and there’s that
So a bit a go i set up a twitter account, but didn’t fully commit. But now, like everyone else, I’m addicted. First it was, you will never see me facebook-caved, fine, but I will NEVER twitter. What’s next? You can follow me here
The days are beginning to blend together now that we don’t have a school schedule to follow. Luckily, J has the week off, so I’m trying to get lots done while I have the chance. With father’s day orders to finish, I definitely needed the help. I also added some new prints to the shop this morning, so please take a look!
things i’m liking from around the web
beautiful art from trampoline, gorgeous vases with ‘character inducing flaws’ at manos and the latest issue of lines and shapes
It is now officially summer. Can. Not. Believe. It. This year they each filled a page of notebook paper with their favorite things about the year and we scanned, colored, and printed them on beautiful paper, to give to their teachers. Each was them of course signed by the artists.my favorite feature is ‘resus’ (otherwise known as recess).
making me miss it
I saw this post over at apartment therapy today about the standard winning the MASterwork Award from the Municipal Art Society for excellence in urban architecture. It stradles the high line which was alas, in its final stages of completion and not yet open while we were there, next time, next time…Man, hope I have an excuse to visit again soon. I miss eating breakfast in THE most comfortable bed with THE most incredible view.
show tomorrow night!
I put up my show yesterday at tilde, in southeast Portland. Please stop in tomorrow night, June 5 for a little opening! more details here.
I have been out of the loop the last few days with an ailing computer. I feel totally disconnected! But now I have a shiny new computer on its way and this perty little cover to keep it that way.
