Halloween, all saints and dios de los muertos are my favorite holiday season.
I think I might start posting more galleries here of other’s art. I find so much amazing stuff; and I can’t afford all of it, or even have room for it all. I have an extensive art collection by now, as I think everyone should. Buying actual art from the artist is a thrill that just can’t be gotten any other way.
It’s a shame to think that collecting art is sometimes seen as a luxury. I think that art is just as necessary as books, movies, internet. It’s something that enriches your life, makes you think, makes the environment you live in more satisfying.
here are the more recent artworks I’ve been enjoying, along with links and information about the artists. I hope you enjoy them, and if you are the type of person who gives gifts in the winter, keep smaller artisans, artists, and craftspeople in mind. No big department store can sell you the connection that a handmade object contains.

just one more of the works I’m finishing up for it! Starting to get nervous and excited. the pre-show butterflies are starting up. will people like the stuff? will I sell anything? will I get too drunk to know?
and how on earth will I manage to explain my damn self, let alone my artwork, to a room full of people?
hopefully the music is loud. See you there.

I’ve been meaning to make prints of my photgraphy for a long time now.
I have this affection for old photos, not like antique old but like 70s/80s old, and every art print site I went through just fucked them up somehow … I ended up having to do my own printing at home. I wish I could afford to get a nice new large scale printer, but for now it’ll have to be 8x10s, at least until I make some more money!
So I finally made prints, got the nice archival inks, some sweet thick paper (good rag texture on it and all) and I’m pretty happy with them. they have just the right amount of grunge and matte soft look for what I was going for.
These are some of the photos I’ve been wanting to hang somewhere. I still haven’t found a venue (the fact that my other art is kooky doesn’t make finding “straight” venues any easier) but at least I got them printed and can put some up for sale.
