My First Attempt at Animatronics

I've been obsessed with animatronics ever since my first trip to Disneyworld, where I made my family ride It's A Small World three times in a row. And I haven't missed a Daytons/Marshall Fields/Macy's holiday display (even though this year's was rather anticlimactic). Finally this weekend I had a chance to make one of my own.

His head and arms move around.

Hopefully this will be the first of many!

Holiday Projects

The time away from work has allowed me to finish up a few holiday crafts. Here's what I've worked on so far:

More on the way soon...

Kitten Punch Volume 1 Issue 4.5

I had the pleasure to be a part of the Generic Zine Exchange, where zine artists were asked to send 25 numbered copies of their blog to a grad student in Buffalo (, where 1 copy would be placed in an exhibition, 4 would be archived, and the remaining 20 would be scrambled and redistributed. Therefore, eventually, I will receive 20 blogs by different people from all over the world! The one stipulation was that the cover had to be hand-printed, and I haven't done any sort of printmaking in quite some time. I finally found something that I was fairly pleased with, and stuck them in the mail yesterday. Since the covers are hand-printed, and since part of the project was that there were 25 numbered copies, I decided to post this edition entirely, instead of hand-distributing them. (click on the images to expand them, and, therefore, read them...they're a little blurry, I know. I'm working on it.) Let me know what you think, and how you feel about them in this format!

Monkey Likes To Party

I had a great time decorating for ahlloween, but come November 1st, I wanted it all gone. I am ready to celebrate something new, as is Monkey. Don't know what he's celebrating, but he is ready!

Into The Pool

I have had the honor to work with Blackbird Theatre Company in Chicago on the postcard for their next show, Into the Pool. I'm working on the poster as well, but that's not quite ready yet. Here's the image. And if you are in Chicago, keep your eyes peeled for them, and check out the show in January!
