sounds like

My band The Shapes
the shapes on myspace
a song for a hot summer day...

This is the end

I have finally finished it. I have been working since April on this thing, monk style. Like... Shaolin monk style. On the floor, hunched over in a manner that is probably the worst thing to do to your back besides breakdancing. The studio has been awash in paisley psych and Persian music while I've been crawling around on the floor with my paintbrushes.
It's been a journey with this one. We're nearing the end of June and it's finally done and the best part is this one gave birth to the ideas for the next one...which means this has been not only a labor of love but a fruitful labor. Indeed.
When I get details on when it will hang at the Dallas Museum of Art I'll post. For now I'm basking in the glow of being a new proud mama (and basking in a comfy chair after I post this!).

Link You Lots!

I started going through my links and I realized most of those linked never linked me back. Sad face! ;-( So my new policy is a lot like a hug, a hug both parties benefit feel loved, they feel loved..everyones snuggly. Thats how my links are now. Some will be just links I love though, no strings attached. Still. Links are nice.

Almost Unveiled

This has been a work in progress since April. Damn. This weekend I think it will be done. I only see a few things that need revising and perfecting. In good time needs to be delivered for the showing by the 23rd. WHEW! How I have busted ass on this painting, sitting on the floor like a monk with a bad back listening to Persian music and taking stretch breaks here and there. It's been quite a journey with you ol' friend! Almost time to get a fresh canvas and start the sequel.

Fun Design is Fun

I finally got off my proverbial butt and started messing around with Illustrator. Despite it being totally foreign to me I'm having tons of fun and so pleased with the crispness of the look and design. I think I have a new vice!
