What Is Wrong With Us?

































When things are so upsetting that I cannot sleep, I don't just lay there.
I get up, turn on my computer and start designing new buttons.

Finger on the Button
































When you can't sleep because you're fretting about political things you can't control.
Get up, turn on your computer, and design some anti-war buttons.

Finally, a long day of painting at my studio.

Poster (below)


































The hardest ones are those that are really an essay and are pretending to be a poster.
Ugh.

This is the 4th Whiskey Brunch!
So much fun, I wouldn't miss it.
I had a blast making this summery poster and buttons.

Velvetouch

































I absolutely bought this perfect, little brush because of the name - Velvetouch.
That's how we professional artworkers roll.

I love summer parties under giant tents, especially if there are magic markers.

Wild Strawberries


































I had an idea, to make tiny wild strawberry charms in all sorts of fun glass and frit colors.
Each one would have a little brightly colored metal bead cap hand cut from a vintage tin.

Above is the first batch of berries, still on their mandrels, fresh out of the kiln.
Below are all the berries cleaned next to a pile of tin disks ready to be domed.

Don't even ask how many funky old tins I have kicking around, some are cut into sheets of metal and the rest are piled into a big storage box in my studio.

































Here they are!
All dressed up with their domed bead caps and little bronze bails.
