Working On A Sunday

There is just something different about working on a Sunday. I don't mean plowing through emails, or any of the other odds and ends that comes daily with my work. But actually doing some creative shinanigans. I feel like I'm cheating, or really not actually doing work... which when I'm not answering emails or any of the other dailies that come with this job, is austentively (spell check on aisle two) really not work as it's what i love to do. I love to make things, sculpting, and painting, and carving, and sticking things together, and cutting shapes out. where am I going here, sidetracked. Oh... working on a Sunday, painting and having funs. Feels like vacation time, and getting good things done. It's my happytime.

This is the first and middle stages of a big watercolor/gouache piece I'm working on for the High Fructose mushroom show this october in Oakland. All week I have been trying to figure out what and which type of thing i would do... Sculpture or painting or bucket of toys, My first instinct was to paint, and after sculpting a bit I think I'm back at this painting thing for this show.

I've been obsessed with the idea of pre-apocalypse and the "Cone Of Indifference" (we can talk about this and my October show at FaceGuts more soon). So this painting is a little slimer enjoying a nice warm day on forest island shielding itself from the stingy rains, while the last orca swims by leisurely, just another fine day in the pre-apocalypse:)

Little Artshow

 Big little stack of tiny arts. Works on paper, these were mostly made in Taiwan, some before my Asia trip, and a few after I got back in the past week or so here.

Also of note. I'm in a show titled Bonkers with 13 other fantastical artists. 7 of us from the states, and 7 from Japan. Show opens second week in June at WAG in Tokyo... More info soon.

Tonight, June 1st I'm in a Dinosaur themed show at True measure here in Portland. Come and say hi.

The ball is really starting to roll over here as i get ready for a four stop wonderbluster. The WTF asia tour goes like this. Studio Uamou Saturday April 28th, and Superfest sharing a table with Cometdebris on April 29th. Both of these jams are in Tokyo. Then I'm off to Thailand for the Thailand Toy Expo (TTE) May 3rd-6th.
