Eyeballs

So... I"m making these new skulls b/c they always sell well and each one is different. So, I'm working on these ones with eyeballs and brains and stuff and I start to wonder about the pupil size. It turns out, after I research it,  that you can measure how happy or pleasant someone is by the size of the pupil. A large pupil means the person is happy or excited - a small pupil means that the person is unhappy or upset. As you can see below  in the third eyeball from the left a small pupil looks weird... right? Anyway, from now on each eyeball I make will reflect how I feel that day...

Scooter's New Mouse

The fireworks around this time of year scare the cat, so I felt bad and made a new catnip mouse for her. Her old ones were from last Xmas and I had this new design I wanted to try. As soon as I gave it to her she carried it around and then fell asleep holding it. It's funny because it intoxicates her - so it's like a bum passing out with a bottle of booze.

Happy Fourth of July!! I hope everyone has a bunch of firecrackers, snacks, Bruce Springsteen on the radio and fun art projects! :)

New "Hamtramck Houses" Magnets

This is the house that I got my cat from. It caught on fire, and afterwards the firemen sealed it up with a bunch of cats inside.  I lived around the block and kept walking by and seeing the cats inside and on the roof crying, day after day. I broke in through the basement and took two cats: One went to the humane society and the other is my housecat, Scooter.

These magnets will be online for sale in about a month, after they get the final coat of glaze on them. They are about 4" x 2".

New Pillowcase for African Fabrics

I got this African fabric from this website, http://www.anansevillage.com, and so I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a few pillowcases for my Etsy page, EmilyJaneWoodArt.

San Francisco Art Museums (Asain, African Diaspora, Comic Book, Modern Art)

The San Fran Asian Art Museum was very cool.

Freida was really young here, when she got married to Diego Rivera. The banner says about how happy they are. Plus this is right when she first starts getting into those crazy feminine traditional clothes she was famous for when she was older.

This freaked me out. The guy has a carrot and I had just drawn this drawing about how doing art was my carrot in life. You can see it by clicking on the image itself.

I liked the way that these two serpent people, a man and a woman, had their tails wrapped around and holding each other tenderly. You can't see it, but they are holding up a foot of a deity 20 times larger than they are.

I forget what they called this but it looked naughtily evil.
