October 29th, Meat Heads

Let's just say this weeks item was a performance art kind of thing. I made these creepy meat heads for my work's "Rot-luck" lunch fest. It was a sandwich tray that included red mayo and green mustard. I used cream cheese to hold the meat in place worked great! Id probably dye the cheese next time I do it though for some more creep factor. 

PS, for work halloween I was The STRONG MAN(dy). get it?!?

October 8th, 2010 - Lazy Eye

I went to the eye doctor last week and the woman told me I had a bit of a lazy eye.
I apologized and said I would give it a talking to when I got home. Now I get fancy
driving glasses to make up for Lefty's lack of motivation.

Under the sea Mural

I finished this mural a few weeks ago but didn't have a chance to document the final until today. It was a commission piece for a little girls room, Im working on a second one right now for two boys of a space scene, yes it totally will have space monkeys.

Here is the original mural idea, I didnt stray much in the final other than the awesome sea sock monkey (that was the little girls idea. Smart kid.)  Behind the cut are some of the photos I took while in the process of painting, enjoy!

October 1, 2010 - The hypocrite

THE STORY: we moved to an adorable little place a few months ago. The neighbors all have dogs and are really friendly. When we first moved in, our neighbor introduced herself to us and warned us that there was an older woman who lived upstairs that didn't like if you let your dog do its business in the grass. She said everyone else was totally cool with it so really, if you just didn't do it in front of her house and cleaned up after yourself everywhere else there would be no problems.
So about 2 weeks agos I took Izzy out with me when going to check the mail and while I was sifting through junk mail Izzy found it a nice time to do her business. Just as I had finished cleaning up the "business" our friendly neighborhood cranky lady turned the corner and had a cow. She ranted about how I shouldnt let my dog go there and that I needed to pick it up ( it was already in a little baggie). (( I also forgot to mention that prior to this Justin was walking Izzy on the sidewalk and she had a fit to him about not letting her go on the grass when he was just walking her for exercise))
Ever since those lovely incounters I have made sure to keep my distance from the woman and even cleaned up poop I found that wasnt our dogs just to keep her happy. This Tuesday Justin was leaving for work, and as he turned the corner to pass the mailboxes he saw the cranky lady standing by the mailboxes. Guess what she had? a new dog. and guess what that dog was doing? POOPING IN THE GRASS. the exact spot that she freaked out on me for letting Izzy go.
