goodbye 2010!

2010 was a very busy year, and i sure neglected this blog!

so let's resolve to change that, and see what other changes 2011 brings.

one last portrait before we leave this decade behind:


I hope you all have a safe and happy new year!

a true gryffindor.

just a few months until the first part of the movie of the last book of harry potter.

chapter 29.
neville: total badass.

while harry was off moping in graveyards and camping in the woods with a haunted necklace, neville was actually getting beaten up on the front lines of the resistance.
awesome.

bye bye billy.

the second piece for the GGG show at gallery 1988: i hope all you angelenos will be attending?


i had never seen gremlins all the way though until i started working on this project.
after being scared to death of the vhs at a sleepover in fourth grade, i never ever wanted to see it again.
actually: it's pretty hilarious! i kind of can't believe that it was a christmas movie.
so here's baby stripe.... he might look cute and cuddly, but the moment where he leans forward and gives gizmo the "im gonna get you look" in this scene, that's it: you know he's born bad to the bone.
