"That Figures."

Over A Barrel

Hey, remember that oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Back in the good ol' days when pipes, not Wiki's, leaked. Simpler times...

The Bows Froze

Well, Emily and I have successfully created an outdoor mural in 18 degree Chicago weather. We aren't entirely sure whether the paint and wheat-paste are frozen or "dry," but it'll hold and will hold for a couple months more. One of my fingers is still numb, but its one that I don't use often, and the wall looks great. We're excited to continue evolving it as the weeks go on.

Also, the folks at Juliet Zulu have a sharp new site, with some swank looking graphics by Yours Truly. Take a peek at their Blog, too.

Misbehavin' Avian

Here are some of the birds that Emily Woodworth and I have been making for our temporary Chicago mural. We'll be wheat-pasting this menagerie many, many times over, creating patterns and rhythms. Then we'll be adding unique, odd, bigger and smaller birds as the winter weeks go on, so keep an eye open for more soon. They are all ink or watercolor, or both.
