22  Mary Huff of Guadalupe no.1 (oh my PIC HEAVY rock n roll heart) + jesus! p.2 in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by theantihipster on: January 25, 2008 04:40:26 PM
1. I love love LOVE the band Southern Culture on the Skids. Most people don't know who they are, and the people who like them are at least 15 years my senior.
So here they are:http://www.scots.com/home/default.asp

2. Mary huff, the bass player, is my hero.

3. religious, mainly Catholic, art is oh so weird & cool

so I'm starting a series based on Mary Huff as the Virgin Mary. I'm addicted to painting rock stars, I try not to examine my motives to keep the subject pure  Grin
I'm really stuck on no. 2 but I figure I'll step away and give it some time.

here she is (I found the better pic!)!

here's an old Amelie portrait (she's not a rock star but she counts, too)

aaaand close-ups, I actually played this 45 til it fell apart, so when it finally bit the dust I used the stickers to Mickey by Tony Basil as accents (you know, oh mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind Hey Mickey *clap clap clap*)

here's a painting I did YEARS ago when this whole thing started.
you guessed it! Hedwig & The Angry Inch

23  Skull & Rose painted handbag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: January 19, 2008 06:33:03 PM
I finished this for the Rock-n-Roll Craft Show in December, it was really fun & I hope to paint more bags, the best part is giving new life to an old, ugly handbag

24  Tattooed Jewelry Box w/pics! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: January 19, 2008 05:59:01 PM
thar she blows, my new snake lady design on an otherwise old-n-ugly jewelry box (even though I'll admit I love that pukey green, mmmmm, pea soup...)

here's the side of the box

I got this box for 2.95 at a thrift store, worth it!

25  Fantastic Plastic!! retro resin & acrylic goodness NEW PICS! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by theantihipster on: January 19, 2008 01:06:16 PM
I love big vintage resin rings. I drool over them, I dream about shopping and wake up wishing I owned the ones I purchased in my sleep.
so I think I've finally figured out how to do it, and I could probably keep every single one for myself (which I can't do, boo hoo  Cry )

I also made this wicked necklace from some found objects & shrinky-dink, an you tell I love big, gaudy stuff yet?

the ultimate irony: my mom has owned a jewelry store since I was a baby, and I never wanted anything to do with it, now I'm making jewelry til the wee hours in the morning after I get home from work. Go figure, right?

p.s. I think I need to buy a new camera, for reals.

27  meet Gary the Hippo! *pics!* in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by theantihipster on: January 19, 2008 12:09:09 PM
you'll have to ask my boyfriend why he's called Gary, but I made one for my nephew for Christmas and now I'm hooked (pardon the pun) on crocheting hippos

I can't get over the instant gratification of crocheting!
I shortened his snout & made some other tweaks to her original, but the body in her blog is much rounder than mine, which is more tube-y or bean-y, how does she get so much roundness from her pattern?
here's her blog: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/03/12/hungry-hungry-hippo/

28  Tattooed Wedges: ugly to awesome! in Shoes: Completed Projects by theantihipster on: December 07, 2007 10:13:27 PM
I wish I had a before picture to enter in this month's craft challenge!
these used to be some very ugly, uncomfortable denim platforms that pinched my toes, but I love how tall they were so I kept them.
Finally one day I decided to spruce them up & here's the result, et voila!

I cut the straps to give my toes a little more room & re-sewed them with some tough thread, the lettering is Latin for "She Flies On Her Own Wings"

effin rad!

I just learned to crochet and I've wanted to make a blanket like a Rom Isom painting. He used to teach at the same school I did and his paintings were ALL OVER the place. He has this crazy cellular style that I think would look really cool in yarn
here is one of his paintings:

30  my first crochet FO! amigurumi best bunny---> in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by theantihipster on: June 08, 2007 02:20:00 PM
So here he is, from the free Lion Brand pattern 'Best Bunny'
not very exciting for seasoned crocheters, but it's the first thing I've ever crocheted! I'm a little excited...

for now he lives on our tv

in this picture you can see his tail (possibly my favorite part)

I've got to fastidiously reshape them...

I've been a knitter for a few years, but I think I may convert to the life of the happy hooker (instant gratification, baby!). I tried to learn to crochet once and all I could make was a nipple (don't ask), but I've figured it out and I really had a good time with this
many more cute things to come! let me know what you think
