64 Dodge Dart

i want this to have under 150,000 miles, come with a pink slip, not have a radiator leak, not exhaust blue smoke, and to be mine within 2 weeks.
not too much to ask for, right?

Black Bananas

i started this painting months ago. it's inspired by RTX. this was way before anyone had any idea they'd change their name to Black Bananas! YEP. creepy coincidences abound--hath re-inspired me to continue onward. i have since darkened the banana and detailed the peyote plants and painted the skulls. much more intricate detailing to come. but for now i thought i'd share the beginning with y'all:

I'm starting to feel that this is a square format piece. i think i'll still paint it like it's not and later end up cropping it. i'm brainstorming about a background. i want something very simple or perhaps nothing at all. my brainstorming reminded me of this piece i did as part of a triad of Emily back in freshman or sophomore year at MassArt.

not wanting to paint bigger than 9"x11" hasn't changed a bit, but i HAVE since figured out how to not completely muddy a good face...
i'm looking at these types of high horizon photos for a guide on possible backgrounds. i'm attracted to yellow or cerulean washes. maybe a tree line, i don't know yet. maybe just shadows of palms--against the "sunlight." for a very Southern Californian feel. feel free to inputtt put

Stardustfuzz Etsy shop + trophy news

for any of you who may have dreamed of owning a piece of mine, i just set up an etsy shop yesterday!  it's a still a pink infant raisin, and will probably go through many changes, but i threw together a banner and am working on adding personal touches here and there.  For now there's only 1 piece for sale--the Gogol Bordello portrait I did nearly 2 years ago for the Far West Almanac, but Wednesday you can expect 2 more pieces.
i'm pretty excited about this!
To set up a shop Etsy runs a $1.01 credit card/bank account check thing, charges $0.20 per listing and takes a 3.5% sales fee.  I chose Etsy over Ebay because Ebay stresses me out!  I like the community on Etsy.

in go-go related news, check out this baby!

hopefully they'll take me up on my offer to be a regular go-go girl for them.  Alex's Bar has a nice stage.
