new journal entry ,)

i haven't uploaded anything new in a really long while, so it was high time that i remedy that situation! i have actually made a few other things besides the 2 new boxes, but i never even added pics! ( for shame!! ) anyhow, i hope you enjoy them, and there will be plenty more in the near future! P.S. it's been about 6 months since my last entry and my family and i are addicted to roller skating more than ever!!!!!

Long TIme No Journal!!

Just thought I'd write something new, since I haven't since October. I will make it quick!! Looking for a new place to live. My son is starting Junior High* shudders* next year, and we live in a terrible school district. Went to New York last weekend! It was incredible! Already trying to figure out how we can go again this year! Went to the Disney Museum in the Presidio( s.f) yesterday. It was actually pretty badass. DIsney has a bad rep but you cant deny that Walt had amazing drive and passion.  Ummm, trying to get some art done for an all girls show I'm in next week.  I've actually done some new stuff lately, but haven't posted it.

I entered a little contest the other day...

and amazingly enough, I won 2nd place!!! I entered one of my latest boxes into the Vice magazine Where The Wild Things Are art contest, and I cant believe that I actually won. I submitted a mere 2 days before the contest was over, and really didn't think I had a chance. Especially after I saw that there was about 160 different submissions.  And when I checked to see if they had chosen the top 3 (plus 20 runners up), I saw my little Max calavera smiling back at me!! Soooo RAd!      Check it out ~ http://wherethewildthingsare.viceland.com/2009/10/your-wild-things-contest-results/#more-696

I saw this little site and I thought you might like it! I'm probably wrong!
Just go there, check it out, and give some critique and perhaps become a minion member.

Hi, Jack Comeaux here …fellow deviant artist. I wanted to let you know that a new online gallery called Asylum Artsource has just been started that is focused on connecting the emerging artist with art buyers. To get the ball rolling they are allowing the first 50 artists to use the service free for the first six months. I think that your art would do well on this site. It won’t cost you anything but a few minutes of your time and you can quit anytime you want. If you’re interested visit the site [link] for details.
