Urgh. Sorry, dudes - I've been sick this week and busy so not a lot of updates. I found this little gem at a used book sale last weekend. It measures at about four inches by three and is one fantastic example of the faux asia that the 1950's America had a notion of. Like old movies have the chinese/japanese servant who does the whole 'me no speaky english' thing? This was my favorite page:

wow. makes me feel super special to be a woman. I'd like to think we've come a little ways since the 1950's - what with the social movements and the like. Will have more updates later, still feeling like crap.

Vintage Labels

Gah. Too many things going on at once. I have more ink drawings but are not done. I've got sewing projects (that are not done) and book arts stuff too (that, you guessed it, are not done) along with gallery obligations and entering the rat race again searching for work. Busy! So you get purty vintage labels instead.

Random Happy Pictures

Don't expect me to remember exactly where I got all these online because I just yanked them without permission.

Playing With Your Food

There's an actual book called Play With Your Food which is where these photos came from, not to mention instructions and materials on how to make your own wierd food creations.

I think this photo is my absolute favorite; it makes me laugh everytime I look at their absurd faces.

Bug plants freak me out (bugs in general freak me out) but I thought the goldfish lettuce head was wonderful.

AWESOME ideas for Halloween

I want this for my centerpiece for Thanksgiving. Totally.

Which finally brings us to my contribution; more additions to the fruit and vegetable family. Mr. Snarky Banana needs an eyeglass which I'll get to this weekend but all in all I like them. (though I'm running out of room on my 'plush' shelf.)

Custom Kokeshi from the web. I'm glad to see other artists love creating their own kokeshi just as much as I do. These were some of my favorites
