polymer clay LEDs

I had fun trying to replicate LED lights, and a LED board. It's all made out of different colored polymer clay, with only a few pieces of jewelry wire as the prongs on the individual LED lights. The board is an actual replica of a board I saw online. I have no idea how it actually works, or what it does, since I've only ever soldered a board once in my life (very successfully though)

quick art post

Very busy... but here's something I've done recently

"lobotomoptopus" illustration for children's alphabet book. full double page spread. Not the final,
there's another version that is cleaned up, more detailed and with text. Gouache

And then here's an old painting I did, which I found on my old flash drive. Goes along with the children book theme.

I like the bear the best. watercolor and ink

sushi book- finished

I posted the progress of a little sushi book i was making, and I finished it promptly after I had posted, but forgot to post more pictures. So here we are!

it's a simple, silly little book, like a shrine to my love of sushi. I enjoyed the process of making it, and it was done relatively quickly making it a satisfying rather than frustrating project, which is what I feel when working on detailed and deeply conceptual works.

Winter birds

I hope everyone had a good holiday season, I have been quite busy but managed to find a little time to relax in between. Today especially! I set out a couple of day old biscutts and some sunflower seeds, and Sat quietly by the window with my camera waiting for some hungry birds.

Photographing these birds was difficult, as they quickly flew in, grabbed seeds and then flew back high up in the trees for safe eating. They know we have a cat lurking around somewhere, but I was wise enough to keep the feather -lusty beast inside today.
