Not What I'm SUPPOSED to be Doing

Ya ever notice how when you're supposed to be working on something every FREAKIN' idea you have does not have anything to do with what you're supposed to be doing?

Right now I'm supposed to be working on my "Power in Numbers 2" piece but I keep finding myself completely and utterly distracted by bunnies. . .

Yes Bunny Rabbits. . . I blame Easter and the card companies turning the "celebration of Jesus dying for our sins" into a day where the cutest God Damn bunnies on the planet hop around everywhere. . .too cute in fact. . . hence the reason I've been distracted by making them EVIL.

Okay, maybe not evil. . . but definately in not very friendly surroundings.

Both of these are obvously unfinished, and hopefully will remain that way until AFTER I finish what I'm supposed to be doing. . . like a good little girl.

Two-dee Fruity (part 1, sorta)

Well, as you can see from the last two previous posts, I've been workin' on this for a while.

My boyfriend and I started talking about something we could do together. Call it bonding time, call it a melding of the minds, call it whatever you like, but we decided it would be fun to make custom guitars.

My boyfriend is a really talented guitar player and is constantly obsessing about getting new ones and customizing his old ones. So, partially to appease him and partially because it sounded like a really fun idea, the two of us decided that he'd do all the hardware work and "prepping of the surfaces" and I'd just "do my thing".

Obviously, this is our first one, and due to our total lack of originality, we decided we should call this one "Two-dee Fruity" (partially because she's a "fruits" girl and partially because my boyfriend said that it should be in honor of the fact that she's a "2-D" design, we're nerds).

Stay tuned for "Two-dee Fruity (part 2)" where I actually post the guitar all put back together again. :D

Fruits Girls

Well, recently I've been super busy and time got away from me. The last thing I wanted to post was this actually. It's part of a larger project that's VERY interesting and cool, well at least to me it is, but since I realized it's been over a month I thought maybe I should post this "color study".

I'm really very excited as I've been asked to take part in the 2nd "Power in Numbers" show over at Gallery Nucleus. Believe it or not, this is actually my first "official" invite from the gallery it's self. I got a few questions a month or so about how I go about getting gallery show's and I told people, for me, it's either sheer luck, or making things happen for myself. My first two shows were group shows where I was lucky enough to know the co-curators, my third show I literally BEGGED and showed them my portfolio, and if anyone remembers my previous "Power in Numbers" post, well, I kind of crashed that show. So it's a big deal for me to have recieved this invite all on my own. :D

So yeah, "Fruits Girls". . . been workin' on a big project just about everywhere I go: at home, at work, in the car. . . It's crazy. I was promised it'll slow down next month.

LOL, yeah right!
