Soggy Bottoms proves to be (nearly) indestructible! Gooooo Soggy!
I’ve always made pinatas the tradional way with a giant balloon wrapped with newspaper… but decided to change it up this time with gauze in place of newspaper, and it turned out to be a faster process, a quicker clean-up and nearly impossible to penetrate! *You can buy the gauze wrap at most art supply places*
Looks like Soggy should be checking himself into the Wound Care Center pronto!
Working on a little, wooden key holder. Seems LONG over-due since I’m notorious for losing my keys….
Spray painting done, now just need to put in the hooks!
Graphics Alive 2- In stores now!
I’m honored to be part of Graphics Alive 2, featuring some of my favorite artists, Arbito (naturally), Parra, Alexander Girard, Bue, Malota and Irana Douer!
“Graphics Alive 2 comes hot on the heels of its predecessor, the highly successful Graphics Alive, and continues to explore the powerful yet humble forms of graphic art and illustration that we experience in our everyday lives. It covers everything from fashion and furniture to toys, household goods, in-store decorations and shop windows.
Works featured include items that embrace us from head to toe and transport us (both physically and mentally) near and far; all have been created by top international designers and artists.”

This year’s Plush You was by far the best one yet… and that’s saying alot! Schmancy and curator (and ever-so-adorable), Kristen Rask, did a spectacular job bringing together the best international, plush designers under two roofs (both Schmancy and Fancy are hosting the event). Here’s some of my favorites from the show! If you didn’t make it to the opening, it’ll be up for a month, so get it done!
Opening: October 8th
Here’s some of my favorites from the show:
This is a group show I put together featuring two of my favorite felt artists, Miss Muju based out of Cornwall, UK, and Monyomonyo from Tokyo. Miss Muju is known for her intricate, hyper-detailed, and prismatic felt ‘Muju’ dolls. The tiny scale she works with is just mind-boggling seeing in person… making you wonder, “how DOES she do it?!”. This is Monyomonyo’s first American show, and I’m honored to be part of it! Her work reminds me of the Muppets on Speed! Her wearable masks coupled with arm pieces are truly something original. I couldn’t be more excited for this!!!
