CHOCOLATE CHIPS MAKE GREAT EYES
March 1st, 2010
making creatures to eat is always fun. my fox cookie cutter yields dynamic and delicate cookies. celery insects are a treat that impress grown-ups and children alike, but grown-ups do not seem to take the same enjoyment in eating these bugs. chocolate chip eyes make edible creatures simultaneously cute and unnerving.
THE SO-CALLED “MOON LANDING”
July 20th, 2009
this seem like a good time to feature my “moon landing” print (when you say this outloud, be sure to really emphasize the “quote, unquote”). News that NASA recorded over / lost the original tapes from the Apollo 13 mission to the moon, is another strike against the legitimacy of the whole endeavor. I mean, have you ever seen images of the craft that supposedly landed on the moon? It looks like it was made of aluminum foil! (Great work, Hollywood. Without any CGI you managed to trick the entire world with your model making.) The sense of incredulity that i cannot seem to shake, is what inspired this poster. The “moon landing” is conspiracy theory that deserved some artistic tribute.

THE STORY OF THE MOUSTACHE SHIRT
June 1st, 2009
the story of the moustache shirt is a simple one. a few years ago i was a carnie for halloween and wore a fabulous moustache as part of my costume. photographs were taken. many humans enjoyed the above photo. i then made a tshirt. i then named it the moustache shirt. many humans bought the tshirt. i then photographed sara wearing the moustache shirt. then some people began writing articles wondering about hipster girls wearing moustaches. i think that women have always been fascinated by moustaches and that it’s not really a new phenomenon, though i’m happy to be a part of a female moustache appreciation movement.
