Hourly Wage

Simmer encouraged me to charge more for my art today. I thought for the first time what it might be like to assign an hourly wage for my work. clocking in to make art? i was instantly appalled. but am i foolish not to? Here are some pics of todays Mushroom Doll Groove!

Earthly Delights

Oh Karrots. Who knew twenty four was a magic, and time consuming, number? This weekend I'll be trying out patterns for the next round of dolls: 'Shrooms. That's right: mushrooms! I heard a theory yesterday that human evolved out of apes eating mushrooms. Cheers!

24 Karrots

The gangs all here! I am finally done stuffing the new 24 Karrots Gang! (With some help from JB.) Each karrot is going to have three leaves, two goog00-ly eyes and a zodiac medallion. Each will come named and with a short bio. Yay! It feels satisfying to work with sculpture: to create a physical form. An idea occupying a three dimensional space. I talk to my dolls, they are my friends. And so are you.

painted cakes

tonight i had the idea to create "grief cakes," little cakes in bright colors that would help celebrate those transitional times of death, loss and aloneness. above are my first two. i was surprised how much they look like brian's new "painterly" style. go team.
