west coast strut that was as sweet as molasses

cheeseball dream i had soon after the car accident in August. going to fill out just a little bit more, then do my special process of
1. scanning
2. printing out on watercolour paper (but this time i'm going to blow up the size
3. painting
4. pen and ink

this one's close to my hear/psyche, belive it OR NOT!

ghosts of the old plains

progress on the sketch for serena's tattoo i'm finally getting on my ass to do (because i get off my ass to do everything and anything else). her phone call pushed me to get started and lack of friends and excess of loneliness pushed me to continue. I hope to finish this by the end of the week.
the visual idea is a fantastical archaic buffalo, a new mythological buffalo creature with scales and feathers.
it's helpful to see my sketch on the screen because it objectively shows me where there are problems. when i revisit this sketch i will skew the scales in a way that suggests the form of his body, move the right eye down a bit because his head is slightly tilted, and even out the horn size. everything else is going to evolve naturally.

in a (probably superficial) sense it's coincidentally appropriate that i'm beginning to reread Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee. maybe vicariously some vein of depth of connection with this land i cannot wholly rightfully claim, yet still feel, will grace this creation process.

In other news, the footage from Farflung/OGOD's Jodorowsky Bacchanal I danced at will not be released because there were camera issues. I'm still on the lookout for other footage but have yet to find any. I have been asked to dance in a studio video for them and all/any of their future gigs, so after they return from their European tour, you'll get lots more visual goodies of my liquid electric go-go!

Spacy Electric Liquid Go-Go Premeire

i was invited by Farflung, a Hawkwind-esque space rock acideater group i met 2 Fourth of Julys ago at a Teepee Records party entitled New Weird America Music or something of that nature. I told them i wanted to do Barbarella go-go for them and they took me up on it last weekend!
The following pictures were taken by Shazzula, the radass witchbaby frontwoman of Aqua Nebula Oscillator, a dark psychedelic group from France who I met in Holland and invited me to Corsica (wetting my imagination's tongue with daydreams of riding horses into the ocean and slipping off backwards into the seas of the Meditteranean, forgotten cliff-edge stone palaces, and indulgent, exotic bird midnights with bottles of whisky and candle-lit gloomy pools.
way back then we spoke about go-go and sewing your own outfits and smushing yourself into festivals.
we're like stranger sisters, far-out peddlers of our own psychedelia realities, dark and light and all between.

VIDEO is promised. Incredibly well-documented debut. Stay in tune for many more gratuitous performance photographs of yourz trulY.

Bean. our baby bunball. yesterday he gave me our first bunny kiss. he's been here for a week now and is still adjusting to all the new sounds and sights but simultaneously is binky-ing with happiness all over the place about his new kingdom

the following is some stuff i've been working on this weekend. i finally ran into the 3d mountain lion postcard again and got to put in the frame i found months ago at goodwill.

i took another trip to goodwill this afternoon and found this neato frame--perfect for the 3d eagle.

oh, seashell strands. how i will exploit your every possibility. the following are finds at a seashellsouvenier store in seal beach. slowly i will build my interior empire into a kitschy, tiki, voudou paradise.

could see the ferris wheel

i got in a car accident 10 minutes away from seeing ZZ Top LIVE! In Concert! Head-on with the airbag punching me in the face. my ankle twisted in my cowboy boots, sprained. the car filled with smoke so fast and i didn't want to open my eyes because they burned so hard i thought they'd fall out of my head. trying to find the door handle but realize i can't even stand up.
i went to the ER in an ambulance and i was crying and the guy asked me what was wrong and i told him i could be seeing ZZ Top right now. he told me no, what hurt with my body.
i had this "vision" dream which i decided i would draw in my sketchbook, blow up really big onto watercolour paper and do a fucking bigass painting. it was about the accident but also really weird cuz, you know, it was a dream. i stopped working on it the second i could hobble around enough to distract myself from sitting in place for 8 hours a day.

yeah my right eye was essentially glued shut from the swelling and the cuts/raw skin for 3 days. now i'm having floaters in my vision, which sucks.

mostly i've been working on stuff like this:

"This is a 1 bedroom California bungalow HOUSE. It is not a studio and it is freestanding. It has a separate kitchen, bedroom, living room, bath (tub/shower), walk-in style closet in both the bedroom and living room. It has a fenced in backyard. Stove/ oven, gardener and water included. Private parking for 1 car. The house is nice, but the price is nicer! Move in immediately. Call to view"

I'm really nervous.
everyone who looks at this please spend 30 seconds wishing me luck.

BERLIN KELPIE nymphette silent siren
the figures in my head have always freaked me out, this is the first time I accepted the weirdness that came out naturally and it felt really good and i think i might enjoy drawing if i could let go all the time instead of trying to conform to the more realistic way of figurative drawing, there's always been something just a little off about my figures anyway, when I rely too heavily on reference. I'm excited
ALSO, I walked into DicE magazine's offices yesterday morning and told them I thought my art was right on with what they were doing, showed them my portfolio, and when I got home around 5 and checked my e-mail, I saw that they'd written me one only minutes after I'd left their office! They said they really dug my style and would be honored if I'd do their next cover.
so stoked.
