so my boyfriend and I have a little running joke that's kind of sad & motivating at the same time. He's a bartender & I'm a tattoo artist, but we hate working for other people so we're both on our "race to a million dollars", if he becomes a successful musician, or I a successful painter, then the other one doesn't have to work & we can do our own thing.

hoop dreams obviously, but it's nice to think about
I'd love to sell this kitschy little idea to knock-knock.biz or something, they're always a big hit at craft shows.

so here they are *DUN-DUN-DUN* Yer-Mug-Here photo frames!!

starring YOU as the virgin mary:

the voluptuous vamp in Man's Ruin:

a cute widdle bunny fufu (based on a great Tara McPherson print *my hero*):

here's some action pics at Indie Valentine:
she's a reproduction of original Sailor Jerry flash art

here's a happy customer buying her buddha!

I made a geisha that one of my fellow rollergirls bought before I could take a pic
(it's extra great cuz I was going to name the art "Shanghai Lily" after my team-mate, who ended up buying her! crazy...)
I'm getting better about this whole archiving deal...

more images to come:
koi fish based on this half-sleeve I've started on Mr Josh:

american gothic
circus freak posters
more geishas & japanese prints
more off my favorite rock posters

all of my frames are rescued from thrift stores & cleaned up/painted, I use as much upcycled (I love that word) materials as I can, waste not want not!
let me know what you think!!

my new etsy shop! come see! come see!

Great idea!  I love the Tim Meadows (Ladies Man) face in the Virgin Mary frame.   Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Brilliant!  One of the more clever upcycled items I've seen.  I love that word, too!

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

The Virgin Mary one really sent me over the edge, along with the Buddha one. Completely hilarious! Immaculate conception for the win.

Simply marvellous! I love the Man's Ruin one (though I WAS wondering who's face that was in the Mary Wink )
