Please join me at the Holiday Market Party in Highlandtown Saturday (tomorrow… er, actually today, considering it’s 1am)! I’ll be selling prints, holiday cards (this image is one of them), and stickers along with 25 other artists and crafters. There will also be food, a firepit out back, and music. It will be fun!

Today is your last chance to see Watchamacallit Thingamajig in The Silber Gallery at Goucher! It’s a really awesome show. And I was very excited for the chance to display my entire Fox’s Misunderstandings series. Here are a few images. Thanks again, Laura Amussen, for inviting me to be a part of it.

My brother sent me the link to a Scientific American article a few days ago about this new thing called The Brain Scoop. And I now have a new fabulous favorite person: Emily Graslie. She’s an artist turned zoologist/taxidermist/museum studies person. I love love love what she’s doing and I wanted to share it with you all. If you like science and animals I think you’ll love it too. It’s one of the best things I’ve seen in a while!

Thanks for looking out for me, bro. Apparently you know me well.

I think it’s pretty obvious, but in case it needs to be said, the image above is from her site.

post tomorrow!

Don’t forget to stop by the Kindl Markt in Hampden tomorrow. I’m selling a bunch of prints. This one could by yours!

It’s also the last event at the Hampden Republican Club! The building has been sold and rumor has it that it’s going to be a restaurant (not sure when). Come see it in it’s final classic style.

We’ll also be accepting donations to help Hurricane Sandy victims. Most needed items are: cleaning supplies, trash bags, rubber gloves, and non perishable food items.

Here’s the facebook link and all the info:
Sunday, December 9
11am – 5pm
3535 Chestnut Ave., Baltimore, MD, 21211

There will be food. There will be art. There will be crafts. There will be drinks. “The game” will be on in the back bar. I, personally, don’t “do” “games”, but if that’s your kind of thing, come hang out and watch it.

Come to Hampden on Sunday to buy arts and crafts from some local artists! I’m participating in a holiday market in Hampden along with a lot of other local artists. I’ll be selling the prints from my etsy store (at a discounted price!) and some brand new ones too.

There will be some food for sale and there will be a bar open in the back. Stop by, buy some things, and hang out with us as we celebrate the winter holidays!

Thanks Lisa D. for organizing the whole thing! And thanks Kelley B. for making the amazing poster!

This weekend I had a wonderful but all too short getaway to Longwood Gardens with my very dear friends Lisa, Luci, and Kelley, stopping first in Wilmington for lunch. Longwood Gardens was HUGE and beautiful, with some amazingly weird plants. I felt very far from Baltimore. In fact, very far from anywhere familiar. It was rather magical. The Bruce Monro show is up through the 29th!

Ben and I took one final fling away from Baltimore before I got too swamped down in teaching craziness. I have a ridiculously busy schedule this fall semester but I’m actually quite excited about it. I’m teaching an animation class! Amongst many other things…

We went camping in the Allegheny National Forest in northern PA. It was glorious to escape the stinky sweaty Baltimore air! And our campground was just a few feet away from a huge sparkling reservoir. That you can legally swim in! (For you fellow Baltimorons, you understand my “don’t swim in this lovely beautiful tempting reservoir unless you want a very large fine” pain.) I officially have seen the most stars I have ever seen in my entire life! It was amazing. The last night we sat under the stars for a long time watching shooting stars. I saw at least six.

I highly recommend camping here! It’s beautiful and only a 5 hour drive from Baltimore. But watch out for bears! We were warned upon arrival by the campground hosts that bears enter the campground, searching for food, all the time. And told us several stories of the most recent “visits”. Needless to say, I had a rather difficult time sleeping the first night, waking up at every sound. I heard deep heavy bear-like breathing right outside our tent while we slept. I never said anything to Ben about it (attributing it to my paranoia and confusion between sleep/awake consciousness). But on the drive home HE told ME he heard a bear breathing on us at night! We are now convinced that neither of us are crazy and that a bear(s) was checking us out at night. Unless the campground is inhabited by some large mouth-breathing strange old man that likes to breath on campers while they sleep…

Here are some photos!

One of the best things I saw at Artscape, despite the fact that it was not actually a part of Artscape, was Hoodie. This guy named Michael was hanging out with a kinetic sculpture creature he made. It was awesome!

I’ve been busy updating my website and opening my etsy shop the past few weeks. And I FINALLY have them both up and running. Take a look at my new site design and my first ever etsy shop. Who wants to be my first customer?! The images here are a new series that I’m working on and my first items for sale in my shop.
