The Secret Is Out!

So this is something I've been working on for months now, literally months!

Is it something you can wear? No.
Is it a new exciting adventure? Yes!
Is it a dinosaur? No (unfortunately).
Does it have to do with my art work? Most definitely!

...give up? It's my brand new fancy shmancy website!!! (trumpets sound)
Yes indeed, is now active. I've poured so much time into it, you just have to see it!!!

So anyhow, I'm going to be taking an extended break from my blog and put all my energy into running my website. You can jump to my facebook and myspace page from there as well, so there's plenty to keep you entertained :D
Well, what do you think of it?

Pocket Mirrors

Mirror, mirror on the wall....or in this case, in your pocket! I've now got 5 brand new pocket mirrors. All have my illustrations and paintings on them and come in a lovely organza bag. I'm really in love with these. They're so cute AND functional. I've got 2 designs up in my shop now, and will be releasing the other 3 soon.

Welcome Twenty Ten!

So a new year means a new start right? Or was New Years just another day of the week?!
For me, it's definitely a new start. I've got a ton of exciting news to update you on.

First things first, I got Hitched! That's right, no more Ms. Christy hee hee hee. My wedding was a fantastically fun stress-free event. Now that all the chaos is finished, I can dive back into my art world. *exhale* I can't wait to get my updates back up to speed (I've been consumed with the wedding and thus, a deadbeat blogger. sorry!).

Next off, I've finally been sucked into the Facebook universe. Holy crap, it's addicting! I can't get enough. So what are you waiting for? Take a peek at my page:

Well, I hope you all had a fantastic new year! We ended up watching Paranormal Activity with some friends, and enjoyed some scrumptious homemade peanut butter bon bons!

Twins! part 2 - Etsy Feature

Howdy all!

Let's travel back in time shall we?...all the way back to May 15th, hahaha.
One of my 'twin prints' was included in a very cool Etsy article in The Storque (their handmade blog).  It talks all about Gemini's and how great twins are. Check it out! Here!

Twins! part 1 - blog feature

It's feature time! Yeah yeah baby can you dig it? I want to watch Dig! again. For those who haven't had the pleasure of seeing this rockumentary, go out and rent it NOW.

Anyhow, getting back to the point of this post, one of my prints was featured on Cathie U's blog! Very cool.

Can you guess which one? Guess correct, and you won't win a prize but you will win my respect.

Go ahead and cheat and see the whole post here: and check out her whole blog while you're there. It's full of fantastic, whimsical art!

On to another tangent, I'm seeing Fischerspooner tonight for free! Hopefully I'll post a review of the show, and if I forget, you can just assume that it was awesome.

Joshua Tree / Cabazon part 1

A few weeks ago, me and a hand full of friends crammed all our bodies, and camera equipment, into my car and headed to Joshua Tree. It was a fun filled photo day adventure, with beautiful landscapes and perfect weather.
We also traveled to Cabazon land of magic and dinosaurs!...think Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.

Here's a little sneak peek (these photos were taken by my lovely friend Angela G.):

I'll post more pictures's too early to give away the grand finale, hee hee hee.

Counting is Number One!

I just can't watch this enough times! The skeleton and bat part is definitely the best, no wait, the zebra and elephant....hmmm, there are just too many good parts.

Come on everyone, sing along:

Who remembers this Sesame Street classic?!
...I think this song is going to be stuck in my head all day. Awesome.

I'm so excited!

It's true, I am!...except for the scared part.

'What makes this gal so insanely happy?' you might be thinking. Well, the fabulous Swiv Tackle Circus Gallery is now carrying prints by yours truly! Definitely make your way to 530 South Coast Hwy in Oceanside CA and check this place out. They've got lots to offer, including lowbrow art exhibits, apparel and accessories made by local artists, and all the fancy black and white striped fabric you can imagine. They even have a garden outside! So go there won't be disappointed.

Have you heard the news?!

I made it into the North Park Craft Mafia's 'Spring Line Up!' Oh happy day!
Check out all the info here. I'll keep you updated as the day of the event (May 17th) gets closer.

...And...I also made it into the San Diego Comic Con's art show! Wowee! So many exciting things.

On a different note, I rediscovered this image while searching for Lucille Ball photos.

The woman of a million personas: Cindy Sherman as a Lucille Ball type vixen.

Any amazing things happening for you today?! Or find any interesting imagery?! Tell me!

Necklaces, art for your neck.

Oh my gato, an artist collaboration!

Me and Cat of Polarity teamed up to create some amazing lockets. Cat constructs these necklaces from recycled car parts, but don't worry, they don't look anything like a rusty old engine. She pieced together her jewelry with my illustrations. The final product:

You MUST see her shop: Polarity

My Etsy shop was featured on Ms. Kayla's blog! Oh happy day!
You can check out the goodness at inkingpaper

Here's one of her card sets:

And, while I'm at it, there was another feature back in February from the fine folks at Fill/Stroke.

I just checked out one of their latest posts...I hadn't realized that the film adaptation of 'Where the Wild Things Are' is coming out in Oct 09! I can't wait!
