71 - Mollie Murphy, Petophile Vigilante

Saturday, March 12, 2011

When I started this one with the pawprint cut outs, I wasn't sure what I would do with the rest of it, then I realized that it was an appropriate backdrop to advertise for a friend *shameless, I know** but this short really is cute.

So, please go to YouTube or Vimeo and enjoy!!

#102 - Clean Out the Fridge Recipe

Saturday, March 12, 2011
Both the recipe and fridge ad are vintage ... probably 1950s. I think those who ate the sandwich didn't make it to the 1960s. Notice the last ingredient .... fat.

Yesterday one of my co-workers opened the fridge and we all said "EWWWWWW!" Very bad smell. We cleaned it top to bottom and played "Guess the Food." We vowed never to let the fridge get that bad again, but we all know that's a vow that will not hold.

I did discover a gourmet mustard that hadn't gone bad (I don't think mustard goes bad) and it was great on my tofurky sandwich at lunch. Sometimes the back of the fridge holds treasures. Sometimes it is only poison.

More asemic for a gal that recognized it in my work. The interference colors really shine in this one. The writing is with a Pigma; my favorite.

100-365 Blue bottle jellyfish

Saturday, March 12, 2011
I'm noticing scans of mainly white images don't seem to look so nice, ah well.

My 16 year old daughter has a best friend from Kindergarten in Portland, Oregon who is now 17 and got a job and bought herself an airplane ticket to Australia to come and see us. She got here yesterday. Today we went to Coogee beach, as you do, and what happened? She and my daughter both got stung by jellyfish!!! What luck!

Thankfully, this jelly, the blue bottle is not the one that stung them. It's sting is VERY painful and lasts for days, they were stung by one amusingly referred to as a "purple people eater". We found several of these "blueys" on the sand though. We picked them up with a stick and put them in a cup of water to see the tendrils dangle and they were every bit as mesmerising and beautiful dead as they are alive.

99-365 mysterious blue creature

Saturday, March 12, 2011
At the beach today, we came across many strange creatures, unfortunately, two different kinds of jellyfish. Also this little guy. It was the same brilliant blue of the blue bottle jelly but about 1 centimetre wide two millimetres thick and with teeny tiny little short tendrils coming out in all directions. I didn't take a photo so I came home and watercolored it from memory.

I can't really Google it to find what it was because I have no idea what to search for. We even showed it to a life guard who said she'd seen one before but didn't know what it was but the good news was that it doesn't sting.

#71/365 Prayer Saves?

Saturday, March 12, 2011
12 March 2011 So I have a BS in Forensic Chemistry (which I am not using in the Forensic field at this time). I was browsing a used bookstore in this area that has shelves full of books for a dollar looking to find something to use in art. I found a little 5x7 book titled "The Blue Book of Crime: Science of Crime Detection" copyright 1941. It has 80 pages with some case studies toward the back and the front describes mainly fingerprinting with illustrations. I was thrilled to see this old book on a subject that has had many advances since 1941. It is mainly useful as an historical reference to how things used to be done and for basic foundation information. I decided to use it for some postcard art since it is not really relevant and is written like bad pulp fiction.

#101 - A Princess's Lament

Saturday, March 12, 2011
I agonized over whether to put the "s" after the apostrophe or leave it off. Either way is correct, but I suspect with the "s" is more correct.

Sending this off to Maria in Texas, who has ventured into the letter writing blogosphere with her Save Snail Mail journal.

Mail Head #38: Egg Head

back (black and white post card is one of Carlo Pittore's!)
front
Egg Head is on its way to South Portland artist Adriane Herman, who claims that her life has changed since she started eating eggs for breakfast. Adriane collects people's lists and uses them to make prints and installations, so I tucked one of my husband's grocery lists (which includes eggs!) in a stitched pocket.

Parallel Caramel 11 March 2011 (#28)

Friday, March 11, 2011

I recently had two of these Starbuck chocolate caramels on two different days and kept the cardboard inserts thinking I would use them to make some mailart. Once I'd laid out/stuck them on the card it struck me that they were parallel to one another and so was born Parallel Caramel!
