Here Come the Mummies – part the second

this is HCTM’s “Hungry Anubis” hand signal for good luck – I added colors myself (original image is just black and white) and had previously tea and coffee dyed a bunch of canvas to look old and worn just to have on hand



Here Come the Mummies – part the first

recently, I’ve started to like this amazing band more and more – finally got to see them in concert and experience their antics…anywho, these were images on tee-shirts they had run out of my size in, so I turned them into patches (for personal use only, no profit being made from the things that are not mine)


Keaton Mask

finally got myself a styrofoam head the other day (his name is George) and got inspired to try to make one of my two favorite masks from the Legend of Zelda games – Keaton!

it’s definitely rough looking, but for my first ever mask, I think it turned out pretty cool!

(guest starring some other little projects of mine, and one of my paint shirts from work in the background – and my hands)


New Technique – White Rabbit

there was an image transfer how-to book at work, and during a slow moment one morning, I picked it up and started to page through. I knew about the gel transfer method and the xylene marker method already, but this book showed me how to do one using just acrylic paint and a xeroxed image.

here it is! my first acrylic paint transfer!

big mixed media projects, here I come…


Autumn to May – Commission

this one was really difficult for me to get concepts for initially, since the song is about tall tales and all. but finally, a year after it was commissioned (I feel bad about that), here it is.

Oh once I had a little dog, his color it was brown
I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and run
His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide
Around the world in half a day, upon him I could ride.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing, Autumn to May.


Oh once I had a little frog, he wore a vest of red
He’d lean upon his silver cane, a top hat on his head
He’d speak of far off places, of things to see and do,
Of all the Kings and Queens he’d met while sailing in a shoe.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing, Autumn to May.


Oh once I had a flock of sheep, they grazed upon a feather
I’d keep them in a music box from wind or rainy weather
And every day the sun would shine, they’d fly all through the town
To bring me back some golden rings, candy by the pound.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing, Autumn to May.


Oh once I had a downey swan, she was so very frail
She sat upon an oyster shell and hatched me out a snail
The snail had changed into a bird, the bird to butterfly
And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing, Autumn to May.
