Luv-able Hug-able 2008

For this year's Luv-able Hug-able show at Gallery Hanahou in New York I sent an array of monsters and a couple of sculptures including this digital alarm clock. The show opens December 4th. It's going to be awesome, I wish I could be there!!!


Repixx is opening tomorrow night at Argyle Fine Art.
Photographer Chr!s Sm!th assigned 15 different artists different band photographs that he'd taken and each artist was asked to make their interpretation.
I was given this photo of Wintersleep. The way Chr!s had photographed sections of each person's body seperately reminded me of the different sections on an insect's body and having just been looking through the framed bugs at a museum, I came up with my idea. The embroidered details on each bug's back are inspired by the Wintersleep's guy's clothing.

Plush You 2008

For this year's Plush You show I decided to make a couple of robots and a ray gun. Both of the robots have a little hiding space in their chests. The ray gun is mounted on a canvas board with hooks so that it can still be played with, you never know when a ray gun can come in handy!

Kitchen Scales

Here's a set of vintage kitchen scales inspired by a set that I found at Value Village.
Like the set it's modeled off, the dial at the front spins so that you can adjust the weight.

Hungry monsters

These hungry monsters appear to have eaten some of their smaller friends. It doesn't look like the little guys mind though, I guess it's a pretty comfy hiding place in there!

Trip to Toronto

Yikes, I can't believe I haven't posted anything since May! I blame a very busy summer, a sick computer and moving to a new apartment.

Back in June I took a trip to Toronto and got to see the lovely Alli and her beautiful gallery in the Distillery District. I took along a sewn tape deck, complete with removable tape and when you press the radio tuning knob it activates a radio static noise hidden inside the tape player.
