Hands off my jelly roll

video
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.
