Lost Dollhouse

This image is from my
Incoherent rambling about Dollhouse. Needcoffee's Weekend Justice wants the rambling to go viral. Here is my take.

Art that I have posted on to My Etsy Store

Steampunk President Lincoln

Angry Candy Corn
Slumbering Cthulhu


Since it is the first month of a new year, I am making the effort to get my work onto my Etsy store. I am also posting new items that I have created. I am going back to doing miniature drawings that I learned to love to do while in college. My etching professor did not think I was working, as I did not seem to be bringing anything into class. Most of of my work ranged from 5" to 1" x 2". I have enjoyed working
on such scale, as it it easy to work almost anywhere. Despite their size, some miniature paintings drawings and etchings can take time to develop into a finished piece. In etching class I remember spending as much time on a small item that most classmates would spend on much larger pieces.

Here are a few items. Most of the items range from 2" x 3.5 to 2.75" x 4.25"

Photo of the Day: Have a Sandwich Mr. Cthulhu

Malpertius of the Twitterverse and her site Far from the Maddening Crowd sent me a great care package of
wonderful things found at the HP Lovecraft Filmfestival in October of last year. I received
two of their posters, one with the art of Mike Mignola and the current tentacle 2009 poster. I also have a shirt form the fest and some
ultra cool HPL buttons and some books. One with the works of Alergernon Blackwood.

Then there was the cool toys in a jar. I love little toys and this jar was such a surprise. I like to photograph small toys
in situations that could convey some emotion. So now I have a new project. I will see about photographing
the toys I have received.

The first one I am calling "Have a Sandwich Mr. Cthulhu. I bought a bag of Cthulhu's some time ago and thought
the juxtaposition of the bunny and the little Cthulhu would be a playful composition.

Tag; toys, Lovecraft, Cthulhu

Photo of the Day: Devil Duck vs Hellboy

This is from my desk at work. I just bought the little Devil Duck. And that is a little Hellboy. I have to have micro toys that don't take up much space.

Photos of the Day: it's Cold out There

I know that most of the country will not give those of us who live in Florida much sympathy during this arctic cold weather. I have still been wandering the landscape in my shorts and sweaters and gloves. Tourist in St. Augustine braved the cold by bundling up to ride in the open air tourist buses. One brave soul was waving and smiling like he was on a Mardi Gras float. I myself was people watching in the warmth of the Sana Monica hotel.

I have also a photo of a church's frozen fountain I shot yesterday. Burrr. Just give us a month and we should be Quasi warm again and the envy if the colder climates.

Photo of the Day: Grow Mushrooms in your Cellar

On my ride to work one day I spied a curious pallet box for mushrooms in someone's trash. This box reminded me of Ray Bradbury's story about boys growing strange mail order mushrooms in their cellars.

Photo of the Day - Stealing

Over the summer My sister and I took my mom to Boston for her to visit her old haunts. One trip was to the Isabelle Garner Museum. No photography was allowed. But I went ahead and used my nintendo DSi gaming system to acquire a few images. Most places will allow photography without a flash. The DSi has no flash plus it is a very lo re camera. Isabelle from her grave can haunt me if she can find me.
