voluptuous melodist wife of stuttering hare !

I got really excited about turning jessica rabbit into a 1EG, especially since i decided to use red glitter for her dress. normally i think glitter is tacky and pretty cheesy for artwork, but for some reason i love it in this. it has turned out to be one of my favorite current pieces. (i wish the picture actually did justice for the glitter as in real life)

So now i really want to keep using glitter.. i'm finishing up my wizard of oz piece today, so i'll be posting it soon! Check back!

Anniversary and Septfest

Last Saturday (sept 12) was my 9 year anniversary of my glorious life in a wheelchair. i usually get pretty upset about it. i remember when 3 years sounded like a lifetime, and it feels horribly disturbing that my 10 year is going to be here before i know it. i'm nearing a decade and it makes me nauseous. luckily, i've had no time to get upset this year or even really think about it. i mean, i guess that's a good thing. such is life.

Sunday was septemberfest. i facepainted and sold artwork. my 1EG's and KAOTIC KRITTERS went over pretty well, which was exciting. i sold a whole bunch of prints and several paintings, so it was way more successful than i anticipated. Prints and paintings are always available! :)

saturday was my boyfriend tim's 26th birthday. we celebrated by spending the weekend up in boston.... where tim forgot my bag with all of my belongings. it wasn't until we were waiting out front of a friend's apartment..after, of course, a six hour car ride.. that he realized he didn't load my bag in the car. i was incredibly pissed at first, but it made for a great ongoing joke for the weekend.

here is one of my birthday presents i made for him. a mini statue of tim! he loves frisbee and that's the outfit he wears pretty much every day, down to the exact vans shoes. the pictures don't show so well, but i also painted on his tattoos on his arm/leg as well as the rings on his fingers and industrial earring in his ear.

it's based off a little version of him i've drawn several times that he likes. it's made from wire, apoxie sculpt, acrylic paint, and a concrete base. enjoy!
