Spicing up the gallery. I am moving to a new space, same building, and thought it would be worth a saturday. I thought about it for a minute and started with brown butcher paper for visual structure. Then an aqua and beige landscape under it, with a little white line for more structure. Then some paintings on top.

My space is a bit dark, so I have added some lights. I think I need to put a spot lights on the masks, maybe a blinking light. Today is “Lunch Truck Thursday” I hope someone takes home the Thunder Lizard. If not I’m going to send it to the Hive in LA, see what those guy can do with it.

Oscar draws a bunch of squids. Chalk drawings in the street with the neighbors. 8 kids running around with chalk and bikes. It was super fun to watch Oscar rocking his squids.

Afternoon project with TATA: On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉 Monster 001: Monster 002: Monster 003:
Here is the first collection of scaryfriends… by Alex Feliciano. a series of masks, faces, bears, rabbits, dogs, and monsters. They have sold out. Second collection coming early 2014.
Found this Today via http://thecardboardcollective.com/….. Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge! Their Mission? to inspire the making of awesome handmade cardboard costumes. They have decided that this year they wanted to adopt a non-commercial, non-competitive approach (less contest, more spirit tunnel) AND to make the event more kid-centered(it’s such a valuable design opportunity for kids.) also wanted encourage adults, who maybe don’t own a sewing machine, or don’t think of themselves as “creative” to branch out and try dabbling in cardboard. more at… http://thecardboardcollective.com/
Baby Rocket is coming, maybe. In the hospital now. This is a dry run we may be going home soon. “Doctor” wants to monitor the baby, mom is having lots of contractions and blood pressure is high. We may spend the night. Little Pistol is with his Aunt and very excited to have sleepover. Special thanks to Aunt and Tata!
