Thanks to our little feisty, scraggly neighborhood cat and trying to find a way to keep her warm during the cold nights, I now have a new line of kitty and pup teepees! Now that we’ve made a little teepee for Meows on our front porch, she decided to make the teepee her new home, as well as ours. Yes, she never leaves, and yes, she’s transformed from the “neighborhood bully” to the sweetest ball of fur I’ve ever known. Guess she’s ours now…. :)
This was by far the largest project (in scale) I’ve ever worked on, and enjoyed taking on the challenge!
Originally I started cutting out the lettering last summer, intending on putting it in a video game themed art show. However I quickly ran out of time and decided to put it off until later, along with a handful of other projects I had just started, until I had more time to work on it.
A year later, and low and behold, I finally got some time to pick up where I left off , and this mattress-sized cartridge is sitting in my living room finally complete!
4′ X 5′ Vinyl Pitfall Cartridge. 10″ Deep.
Complete with sound box when pushing down on Pitfall Harry’s pocket (game play/ jumping over gators sound!).
$2500 w/o shipping. Contact email@example.com for for details.
Just finished these wooden, garden sculptures in attempts to fill the void where our giant, cedar tree once grew. Somehow I can’t help but think of traffic signs now…
2012 was not only a great year, it also re-ignited my childhood love of Star Wars! It ended with me most recently completing a super special, shiny Darth Vader Soft Figure Case. Vader is heading to it’s new home, Rancho Obi-Wan! I feel so honored for it to be going to such a good home, and to someone who appreciates Star Wars like no other!
This is the first time I’ve worked with patent vinyl, and although it’s ridiculously slippery material to work with, the pay-off is totally worth it. I just hope the new owner can look past my grubby finger-print marks from handling it so much. So, so soft and supple, guh……..
“Rancho Obi-Wan (ROW) is a non-profit Star Wars memorabilia museum on the outskirts of wine country in Sonoma County, California, just a 50-minute drive north of San Francisco. It is an eye-popping, wonder-inducing, interactive experience for fans of the saga of all ages and from all over the world. Recently remodeled, its nearly 9,000 square feet of space houses 35 years of Star Wars treasures from all over the world.”

It’s that time again…. finally nearing ‘summer’ and pent up rage/anger/depression over the long, cold, rainy months in Seattle and we’re ready to beat out all that frustration in the form of piñata bashing; Brain Drain Style!
This year I told myself I’d downsize this piñata as they always end up being way too big and loads of work; yet somehow this one turned out bigger than ever at 4ft tall! (sigh) Just that much more satisfying beating it to the ground!
