Since etsy has begun openly allowing un ethical factory and mass-produced goods, I’ve been casting around for alternative sites to sell through. Since I link here from my etsy shop I won’t be selling the art pieces I sell on etsy elsewhere (yet another way they like to fuck artists over…) but those I am not listing on etsy are available here for now: http://www.freewebstore.org/resonanteye
Unlike etsy, they take no fees, and pay me direct. Also, you can pay with paypal OR google wallet there. So that’s another bonus. Depending on how well it goes I might list more there, I’ll have to see if it’s worth the effort.
Let me know what you think.

She also has kisses like warm heaven.
this project is a 22×30″ lotus in water I am painting for my friend Lenny.
This is the lines and also, some color…
this is a portrait of someone I love.
here it is a little further along.
and this is what I did today at the studio.
Come see me for tattoo time, at the Salem High Priestess! I’ll be working through until the 18th, then off for the holidays.
I’ve got plenty of open time, too.
OR email me if you’d like to commission some artwork. I’ve got two or three projects ahead of you, but plenty of time to take on a few more ideas! email me for info- resonanteye at gmail dot com.

I am gearing up! Making salmon jerky for the trip, and figuring out what to pack.
Hawkins caught a gigantic coho salmon the other day. I mean HUGE. I couldn’t lift it.
I’m going to be in Sacto by weds/thurs- I have an appointment to tattoo a friend down there on the 19th, so that’s my last-minute arrival time. I should be in Phoenix by the 21st/22nd.
Looking forward to a little desert time with my desert family.

In 2003, on the 4th of July, I tried to kill myself.
from that time:
”I feel pain, and I don’t know where to put it or what to do. I am also SO FUCKING ANGRY that I wanna blow up, tear up, the world sometimes. I am striving not to take that out on the people around me. I am striving for “alone time”. I am striving for…clarity. I cannot make up my mind about anything. Everything I could do now that is good, feels like my second choice in direction, and not a close second either, but a booby prize. And I don’t know if I can do all the things the world wants me to do and that I’m supposed to do, because I feel utterly exhausted even thinking about the smallest thing.”
Mopery! (I know mopery actually means something else.) I was utterly destroyed at the time. I had been in my worst, lowest kind of depression for months, and then began a long protracted breakup as well, that weekend.
It was one of the lowest times of my entire life. I lived through it, and it’s a little fresh today, so I won’t go into too much detail right now. But I will say that I have not tried again, my life has changed for the better, and my ability to weather down times has grown- and that I am glad I survived, and am here.
I wasn’t selfish- I was in pain. I wasn’t a coward- I was at the end of my rope. I know that if you have never been that far down, inside, you don’t understand that. I am glad that you don’t because it really is bad. Suicide, for some people at some times, is like a dog chewing off a leg to escape a trap.
I’m going to spend today, unlike every other year so far- nurturing the crap out of myself, instead of partying with my people. It’s a good day. I’m free, and I’m alive.
You guys, light a firecracker or ten for me. I’ll see you at the next shindig.
my mom says, ”It’s not that bad things happen to good people.It’s that good things happen to bad people. That’s what gets me.”

these are the originals:
colored pencil works on tinted paper, 8×10″ each. they’re all framed, with glass.
and they’re all 75$ (80 after shipping). “add to cart” to buy them!
prints are also available – All of em are printed from high-res scans, on thick matte 8 1/2×11″ rag paper with archival epson pigments. numbered and signed by me!
The lolrus, Elk, brown owl, ice owl, axolotl, pangolin, rat, brown bat, pink bat, hippo, boar, or octopus are all printed and ready to go, just click their name to buy one.
Right now, I have a red fox, a honey badger, a rabbit, and a giraffe on the to-do list. I’ve got a few in progress as well and a few more finished that I need to add to this post later on.
Email me or feel free to leave a comment – if you have suggestions, or a favorite animal!
I drew these with prismacolor pencil on textured paper. it really wears my hands down to work with pencil only, but man, I love the results so it’s totally worth it.
I’m so stoked to have my art on my own site now.
click through to see all the animals!
