Crayon Bunnies and Crayon Abe Lincoln Heads

Some crayon sculptures I have made for the Santa Monica Museum of Art

Monday, July 12, 2010


I was already planning on going to LBMA After Dark because I heard that it was a blast, then I was fortunate enough to get asked to vend and do a demo along with the other gals from the Long Beach Craft Mafia. Hope to see you there!

Leatherette Heart in Bust Magazine

My home girl, fellow Long Beach Craft Mafiosa, and one of my top favorite people of all time, Liz Abbot, has a dress she made featured in Bust Magazine this month. Check out more of her stuff at

BONUS: in the back of the magazine there is a hilarious comic by Esther Pearl Watson . I bought Unlovable at last Spring's Unique Los Angeles. She is a super cool lady and even personalized it with a funny doodle.

Hands off my jelly roll

Sweet Emma "I Ain't Gonna Give Nobody None Of My Jellyroll"

I (not so) secretly wish Lady Gaga or Beyonce (either or) would cover this song... and I would make them a giant jelly roll hat.

My new favorite.

I read this really great S.britt interview on Grain Edit.

He is really freakin' funny. I especially enjoyed his creative process employing crayons, for obvious reasons.

Read up on a few of his influences:

Raindrops on rummies and whiskers on women
Bright copper swamp stills and buck naked swimmin’
Covered in calamine, to soothe the wasp stings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Big Chief tablets and Sharpies for doodles
Schlitz and tuna fish and Top Ramen noodles
In a tattered blue bathrobe, fit for a king
These are a few of my favorite things!

Raccoons and hobos that go through your trashes
Thirty-one bite marks and red swollen scratches
A dozen more rabies shots just before spring
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the rent’s late, when the water breaks
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad!

Springtime Diorama

This is the diorama and crayon sculptures I dropped off for the Homegrown art show at The Camp in Costa Mesa this Friday. Poor Jeff had to lay in a patch of grass on the side of the 5 freeway on the way to Carlsbad to get the flower photo in the background. Yes, that is a real squirrel.

Good Day L.A.

The show "Good Day LA" featured Royal -T Cafe in Culver City this morning. For the whole month of March they are having a special "Alice in Wonderland High Tea". Keeping up with the theme of the event they brought along some Crayon Fawn cupcake hats. Look how blissful they look with giant cupcakes on their heads.
