“Intelligence”: Image Blast!

Wow. I’ve got less than two weeks until install and I feel like I’m in a good place with the timing of it all. I’m going to tease you with photos! You know those stickers I’ve been handing out? You can see them implanted into this cut that I did. They are the security eyeball […]

“Intelligence”: Vinyl Cutter Open for Business

…sort of. I’ll be willing to cut stuff for you after my art show. I just wanted to show you my new toy. Well, mine and Ryder’s. We’re sharing the cost because damn, a 53″ vinyl cutter is not cheap. Why do I have a vinyl cutter? It’s for a nearly invisible set of art […]

Ok. I’m… actually trying to rein in the sweets now. Trying and failing. I tell myself that I can only have one sweet per day and somehow I keep breaking my rule. My newly acquired dancer body is taking a hit, even with the dancing and all the walking and bike riding I do around […]

Furaidochikin Crossing: There Will be Blood

On the first day that I was finally able to start chopping fans I mistook my left index finger for bamboo. THWACK! I don’t have a pic of the initial damage but it almost made me throw up and pass out. I feel overly dramatic about it because the wound is only about a centimeter […]

Furaidochikin Crossing: More Cats

There’s just so many! Maybe I’m nutty about Japan because Japan gets nutty about things with the same fervor that I do.
