Feverish in Phoenix

This week I've been sick. Really miserable actually....




On Friday Phoebe was the MC for her school's talent show, and I was so out of it, we wound up being late and missing her intro. In my jacket pocket, in my sweaty palm, was our camera. In my delirium I managed to grip it tightly all night yet never once thought to take it out and snap a single photo of the show!  She did great however, from what I remember, though it's all a bit blurry.


Today I packed up these three masks for my biggest order to date, to a buyer in Pennsylvania. Tomorrow I'll ship them as well as a drawing by Mike that was sold to a buyer in Queensland, Australia.


It's time for building my mutant piñata. I'm creating this guy, and his name will be "Kissy Fishy"and he will be very big I'm sure. Construction begins this week!!

In other news I've submitted to my first chalk festival for this year-Wish me luck!!

Some photos, more letters and a trip to the museum

I'm so very excited! Photographer, Sharon Covert purchased two of my masks and shared these incredible photos of them with me!!

More of her photos are here!


These are the masks she purchased...


It's great to see what she did with them. She just bought another one today!!

Anyway Christmas break has come and gone, while it was happening we did manage to get out to the museum for a visit.


The art museum here in Phoenix is the largest in the southwest.


The exhibits change over every few months.


It had been a while since we'd been there so a lot of it was new.


They had a special white shirt exhibit on display.


Unfortunately my camera makes them all look like glowing blobs.


The red dress were easier to photograph.


The circle of animals display was beautiful.


The golden statues.


The pig head.


A magnificent Calder sculpture.

Anyway, my letters for the Eduardo Munez film have arrived in England. I look forward to seeing them in the film! Happy 2016!






"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
