Tee Shirts, Posters and Buttons, Oh My

Very few beads but a lot of commercial work this week.
All for an event that's part of this year's Rochester Cocktail Revival.


































This looks like quite the party - above is my design for the poster and postcard.
Below is the tee shirt design.


































Here are the bits for Facebook and Instagram.



































A giant vinyl banner for behind the stage (something I've never been asked to produce before).


































And lastly, my favorite thing in the world to make - buttons!






















Phew.
My butt is flat from so much time parked in front of my computer.

The Easter Bunny is Coming to Town


































"Bunny Hunny"
Oil on canvas.

Twenty years ago I painted a series of 'portraits' of vintage plush toys.
This one was hard to photography because it was done with a lot of metallic and iridescent oil paints.

My (Grape) Jam

































'Vinyard' - 36"x36" oil on canvas

It's always very satisfying to finish a big painting.

Sweet Tweets

































Two little lampwork robin pendants.

The bodies are 'special brown' dipped in fine raku frit, the breasts are 'carrot red.'
The bails are bronze.

Do you know this nursery rhyme?

Little cock robin
Sitting on a pole
Niddle noddle went his head
Poop went his hole

(they don't make 'em like they used to)
