Show & Tell...

Hello Lovelies!

Well, it was a busy weekend for The Stapelia Company. I did the Picnic Art Show here in Portland and it was wonderful! The people were great, the work was spectacular and the people watching... well needless to say. I took some pics of the booth as promised and my booth-mate Meghan of Meghan Donahue's Jewelry and I even got into the local paper! Check it out...


Also, I am working on a few original pieces for the shop for Halloween. I am delving back into scratchboard because it's perfect for creepy Halloween work. This series will be entitled the Night Revery series. There will be 4 in all and they will come matted in mattes from The Curiosity Shoppe so basically they're going to rock. I'll keep you posted. Here are some preliminary sketches...


I am also working on 5 pieces for my gallery that will be part of the Down the Rabbit Hole exhibit for October which will of course be both Alice in Wonderland inspired and wonderful. These are in the very beginning phases so I will keep you posted my Lambs.

Speaking of wonderful, I have found a new letterpress studio that pretty much embodies my aesthetic in everything they do. I love it all. Aesthetic Apparatus does both design work via letterpress and pieces of limited edition artwork available on their site. If I had unlimited wall space and resources what wouldn't I buy from these kids? Really... Here are some examples. Check them out.


And let's wrap up with a new story, shall we? Of course we shall. Did you all read about the new drug Latisse that's supposedly able to thicken your eyelashes? Originally intended to help burn victims recover and thicken their eyelashes, this drug is now being purchased by women who feel their eyelashes are "inadequate." And speaking of facial hair, Brian Peterkin-Vertanesian recently petitioned the Guinness Book of World Records to recognize "Wally" his 6 3/8 inch eyebrows as the world's longest... Come on folks. Really? All the issues in the world and we have this? Unbelievable...

And let me say to wrap up, I just learned that Patrick Swayze has succumbed to cancer. What a damn shame. Poor thing. A great actor and a good person, he will be missed.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
