I just dropped these off at Art Bar. They are all framed and should be for sale beginning on the evening of Nov. 7th.
I decided to experiment using vellum again. Basically, this is two papercuts with a piece of vellum between them.
This is only the third time I’ve tried this.
More practice required…
The idea and the title comes from Tangled Up In Blue by Bob Dylan.
This is the last piece I’m making for the Art Bar ‘tiny art’ show running from November 7th through December 31. If you are interested in any of the last 10 things I have made, they will be for sale there on those dates. The address is 722 E. Burleigh St. in Milwaukee.
I’m also going to be in the Waxwing art show the following Friday.
I’m off to start making things for that…busy, busy.
I changed the colors and added a moon.
This had many (many) titles before I settled on this one.
I was listening to a lot of the National and the Sandwitches while I was designing it.
Only a few more for the Art Bar ‘tiny art’ show and then I will to need to start on the Waxwing seasonal art show.
I have about a dozen things on the back-burner, but no time to complete them.
Woe is everything.
Hopefully postcard boxes will present themselves next week.
Anyway, thanks for looking….
I took a break from making work for the “tiny art” show so that I could finish designing fronts and backs for collections of my postcards.
I decided to use original art that I hadn’t used for other purposes before and Katurah and I finalized the design and layout over the weekend.
Each volume will contain 10 sequential postcards & envelopes, plus the front and back cards and will housed in an acrylic box similar to most card collections. All postcards are the same as the ones I have for sale with the exception of #1, which is out of print, and #21, which was a limited edition. They will contain slightly different reprints of those two.
With luck, these should be for sale in about 2 weeks.

The idea for this came to me yesterday while I was Googling “Internal Whale Organs”.
Years ago I made a papercut of a little kid by a campfire inside of whale and I wanted to remake it in a style more representative of the work I do now. In my original I just used a cartoon bubble void for the kid to be sitting in, but I was curious if the actual shape of a whales stomach could be used instead. For some reason generic teeth kept popping up among the images of whale stomachs. Eventually I though to myself, “What would live inside a tooth?” and I amusingly answered the thought with, “dead faeries”. I couldn’t shake the idea, so I made one.
I was watching “Number Please” by Harold Lloyd last night. In the beginning he is lonely and riding a roller-coaster by himself.
The title of this was in the description of how he was feeling.
