My new ‘old’ mad-sciencey steampunkesque art lab workstation.
I built this over the weekend. The table was a simple 2×4 table with an MDF top that I painted white. Now I have a wall-o-shelves and hooks and things to organize my tools and supplies. The table is now black with an exotic animal hide cover, Yogasus Mattius (a.k.a. yoga mat). All the wood and trim were scrap. Most of the hardware I got at Hobby Lobby in a half-off sale. They were pretty cheaply priced, but very cool old-world looking metal pieces. In the middle on the top shelf sits my super-cool voodoo doll by JunkerJane!
Meth & Hot Dogs 2 is a celebration of character art in all its forms. The exhibit will bring together a group of artists who have an appreciation for the demented, cute and strange. M&HD2 opens April 30th at Lift Designer Toys & Gallery in Royal Oak, MI.

With the new year comes a new Scottoons character figure… Bew. Bews are fun-loving spooks that like to play, laugh, and sometimes cause mischief. The first set, Micro Bews, are 1 inch tall resin figures. No two Micro Bews are ever the same. Each one is hand-cast and hand-painted with an expression of its very own. Pricing and availability coming soon. Keep watching to see what else comes out of the Scottoons Bewery!

…and here’s the piece I entered:
And now for something totally unrelated to the art front… I’ve cut the cord on cable/satellite slavery. Yup, I’m now going commando. Well, as far as TV channels, that is. Gotta say, it feels good. Hanging on to my TiVo addiction, however.
