Quick carved scissor stamp and death cassette.

Thanks to my buddy, Ryan, for the awesome stickers, of which there are many more to come!

Horseshoe Crab Stamp!

I carved this free-hand on an artist block:

I totally dig horseshoe crabs. They are grotesque and beautiful (which is probably one of my favorite mixing of adjectives).

Here's the inspiration:

Punk Rock Elephant

I made this little stuffed elephant by hand for a One Tiny Thing swap on Craftster. He has a lot of attitude, I'm not sure which was harder: tediously sewing him, or sending him off to his new home.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Screen Print

In a spur-of-the-moment fury of nerdiness, I made this screen print this evening. I totally ruined on of the shirts, and had to draw a huge circle around the print to cover my mess, but I think they both turned out fine.

Cyclops Bunny

This is one of the first stuffies I made. It was inspired by Kid Robot's Dunny and by the friend I made it for.

Seriously. The Last Stamp Today

Being injured this weekend has let me to several stamp endeavors, this of which is the last. I really like how it turned out!

Do Pain Meds and Carving Mix?

I made this for one of my best buddies! I hope he likes it!

It's a little sloppy because it was done under the influence of medication. Crafting is usually my remedy for a better life, but every so often, crafting alone can't make me feel better.

Little Dear

A watercolor I did a while back for a swap. Somewhat inspired by Audrey Kawasaki. The layering technique I used did not translate well on the left side of her face, unfortunately.

Screen Prints

Screen prints I made for a swap awhile back. This was my first attempt at screen printing, and with the tutorial I used, I found it fairly quick and easy! As you can see, I've used it several times, all with different results.

Little something for myself:

Graffiti Friends

Here are some stamps I've been working on. They are based on some illustrations from Juxtapoz magazine by Grotesk. I altered them to my liking as I thought they appeared slightly smug in the originals.
