Test post 3

Let's try pic AND words....
I think this was a piece of gregory's homemade bday cake...the face
was an accidental discovery.
The giraffe below is from the Paul Smith store.
There's a fly the size of a nickel flying around our house right now.
It sounds like a cartoon. Bzzzzz
I dislike watching movies about couples fightings.
I was enjoying being lazy past few days but now I'm sorry that I
wished I could be lazy forever cause now I need crutches to get
around; it's slowing me down and difficult to plan my outfits around.
2009 will be a great year....!

our table from bazaar bizarre in SF and animals

i like posting things out of order and all at once. also, i post things usually way after they happened if you haven't noticed....

thanks for helping sister saewon!

michelle's little critters i've been watching for the past few days... besides living in buenos aires for 2 months earlier this year, i don't think i've slept in one place for more than a month (usually closer to a week) for this whole year. i've slept in many beds, many hotels, many weird hours of the day and night...

i want to petsit for these guys...

where did this year go???

gathered together show is done. come tonight!

click on image for more detailed shots.
jill and i are extremely happy with the way our show turned out! with the way we collaborate and our process being very fluid and organic, we don't really know how things will turn out until after they are finished. we had some sleep deprived zombie days, but they were worth it. please come by and see the show! more pics of individual works should be posted on tinlark's website on monday, nov. 17th (and available for purchase too.)

some artwork for 'Gathered Together' exhibition

my dad, the master carpenter, hard at work...

click on www.blog.jillbliss.com for some more pics/updates

so sleepy

miracles happen. i've been stuck on euro time and have been going bed at a normal time like a normal human and not a vampire. jill bliss has been staying with me and we've been busy working on our show... this is the first time in our 4 years of collaborating that i've been on the same sleep schedule as her.

i'm too lazy to clean right now and too lazy to take a better photo so here's a pic in reverse for dyslexic people because it was taken with 'photo booth.'

it's nice having someone in the studio out here in the 'burbs.
we're going to try to finish work early so that i can take jill to see my psychic lady while she's in town. i'm not ready yet to get a reading for myself again 'cause the last one she gave me started to creep me out... but, i'd like to drop by to say hello and to tell her that she was right. maybe psychics don't hear about follow ups often enough.

other things i learned today:
- horoscopes are TRUE. why?!!!! how??!!! it makes no sense.
- a guy i went to high school with is the world's 6th best poker player. crazy.
- our dog has an eating disorder. over the weekend i pet-sat for another dog with a different sort of eating disorder. i wish i could help them.
- some people are mean and i want to hit them in the face with a rock... through the phone.

in the studio

giclee prints arrived!
looks crappy in this photo but looks great up close because you can see all the detail and texture of the dioramas that jill bliss and i made for our 2009 calendar. these will be part of an upcoming art show at tinlark, nov. 15th. everything else in the show will be new pieces that weren't a part of our calendar but expands on the theme of 'gathered together.'
should be greeeat!

my mom is so nice. she brought me a flower while i was working... she says it won't last long so to enjoy it fully. wise words that can apply to anything.

the loneliest gallery in the world & the beauty road trip

click here to learn about the loneliest gallery in the world.
this is a project by my pals stephanie hutin and flo zavala. i love the name of the project.
i decided to make a short list of other lonely things:

- puppies without mothers
- long distance lovers
- florescent lighting
- cold weather

here's another project i like by my old studio mates, martha rich and esther pearl watson. the beauty road trip.

Friday, October 17, 2008


haarlem is the town next to amsterdam and i took a little mini trip there to meet up with marlies, a book designer that i've worked with on several occasions. she showed me the proof of the last project i worked on with her. it might all get revised but i liked the version that i saw.

and... that's it for now. i'm back in california. 10 posts in 1 day. phew.

japanese book in amsterdam - what does this say?

i skipped a lot of the middle part and i don't even know if i have this order correct but this is an amazing book. more detailed than a where's waldo book and simply about a girl cleaning her her room. it's sequential and about 30 pages i think. i love obsessive details.

amsterdam, netherlands oct. 12th - 14th

amsterdam!! i think i'm partly biased because amsterdam was warmer than denmark, but i love this city. it's my second time visiting and i want to live on a houseboat or squat here...

fave parts of trip: riding bikes and getting lost, walking tour with our hosts joordi and anne, swans and yellow leaves in the canals, seeing the clash of new artist/designer studios juxtaposed in between prostitutes in the red light district, chocolate boutique, tons of bookshops everywhere, best thai food ever at thai bird, blurriness and giggles, pumpkin head men and panda boats... conclusion: i never wanted to leave but, it's probably a good thing that i did. p.s. on the plane ride back to the u.s. a man tried to choke another passenger and had to be restrained. then when we landed, we all had to wait a little bit longer for the police to come. weird.
