Birds in cages

All that left over Ikea cardboard has come to good use. I really wanted a birdcage so naturally I made one. I submited it to a Christmas Cardboard design competition at Core77
Take a look and put in a good vote for me!

Some extra bird drawings I didn't use.

Write a master thesis? No... make useless things. I am de-stressing and now narcissisticly posting pictures.
 Stitching, bitching and beading....
 It is cold enough to actually NEED these
 Because they can't grow right now...

 Oh and SNOWmako, taking it to the streets

Oh Deer

 I am having a fit of motivation and really getting things done. Here is the video of Sadie I finally edited. She can't really walk all that well in the wild, but I had fun looking like a crazy person in the woods. Playing with walking deer toy makes you seem a little nuts.

What next?

Bonus Video

So I filmed a short video while shooting, just to show how gross it was. The quality is nothing to be desired, but hey that's all I got to work with.

Observational Protocol

So this is a little off topic as to what I usually post about but I was really excited with the results. I thought that maybe people could help me out if they wanted to.

I created a system to observe people and categorize them into a "type"
See here:
 The idea it that people lead and walk with what is most important to them.
I spent a half and hour or so a put it to the test.

This is what I came up with... If you want to read more about it. I also post on my Master Thesis Class Blog, Here is the article

So if you wanted to do a quick observation using my methodand symbol system and then send it to me at :

I would be so happy, it would help me out! It was actually really fun.

A photo project that I have been working on about provocation. I tried to provoke two emotions at the same time. Admiration and disgust, so I guess you could say it is pretty gross.... ah right. Thank you Miriam and Rachel for being such nice models as I covered you in stuff.

Sadie, The Deer with the Crimson Coat

I finally feel like there is something to show. But it is still in the works. I am trying not to show unfinished things anymore but, it has been a while on this one. Here is a little story of the birth of Sadie made from the skeleton of a cat and transformed into a deer.

 It was as lovely day in the forest. I took some video of Sadie walking but those will come later.

I wrote a story about Sadie. Here is it complete with a storyboard.

The Deer with the Crimson Coat

There once was a deer with a crimson coat. She liked to wander far from home to see where the woods would take her. One day, she crossed a river too far and could no longer return. In a moment of panic she stumbled into a hunter’s trap. She lay there with a broken leg in the woods wishing to be free.

In this part of the woods there was a hunter, who on this day was feeling quite content with his new wool coat.  One might say it was luck that the hunter found the deer, but others will say that it was a curse. Upon seeing the deer, the hunter was taken by her crumpled body and doleful eyes. He laid his rifle on the ground and set her free.

It was in this instant that the deer fell for the hunter and his kindness. Something she had never seen and would never forget. Months passed by and the deer knew nothing else of the unfamiliar land but that one moment of kindness. Hoping to find comfort from this moment the deer returned to the place she had found the hunter.

The Hunter was there waiting and by now his wool coat had grown thin and his family hungry. He looked at the deer and no longer saw the doleful eyes but her crimson coat that would keep his family through the winter. He now had to choose is was going to take the life that he had once saved. He raised his riffle and thought of his children, his wife and his empty stomach.

The deer looked into the eyes are the hunter and no longer saw the kindness from before. She was just a deer and he was just and hunter. Not knowing weather to run, the deer stood still as the hunter shot her in the chest. The hunter collected his prize and returned to his family.

The following Spring the hunter wore a crimson coat but no riffle. He had laid down the weapon that had killed the deer and had taken up fishing.

The End.

Is it lame to post school stuff? Maybe, but a little something I have been working on. It was more about the process and symbolism I guess.

We Match

So In an effort to keep busy and sane I did a little threadless time. If you would be so kind to put in a vote... I would be happy.

Back Talk

Thanks to the WWA Gallery in Culver City, I did a interview for Juxtapoz Magazine online for their upcoming Horrorwood show. 

Read it here!

Be sure to stop by on Oct 15th, there are going to be so many amazing people.

Oh and because I love nothing more than to make work for myself... I have been working a project for while that is finally ready to be shown. Just a little bit. Here is Micheal helping out with some of the research... feeding deer at the Swiss "Animal Park".

 Oh to have homework again... My first assignment : story around a given picture, then compiled into one. Scanned. Done. I have the whole computer lab to myself it seems ( I am the only one with out a laptop, it is still the shop for the next week).
Final? Suggestions? The negative space between his legs keeps on bouncing back and forth... Funny that I got a picture so similar to my senior thesis too.

Eternal Enternal Sunshine

I wish for sun.

A piece for Crazy for Cult Customs in San Fransico based on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I tried something new this time. Magnets in the hands and feet so you hang it on the wall and position it. I like it. Your dear  Clemintine can move.

My first piece in the this country. It was a struggle to find materials when you don't know where anything is or can't really read.

Can Barely Contain Myself

I am moving and I thought I should busy myself by fashioning custom pencil bags for everything I own. So now I have a special place for my paints, brushes, pencils, wacom and whatever I can stuff in. A little much I know, but really what else can I do?

More than Never

NeverWonderLand is coming up soon! Here are some invitations I made for props. I hand inked all six and then cover them in glitter. I also had a fun time carving a seal to stamp the wax... I think I am going to try and bring this trend back. It is horribly fun.
