street view

A view of the main street in lovely Chatham, NJ. It's very well-manicured. Lots of flowers.

I really like the lamp posts. They are pretend-old.

paint splatter plus some thoughtful ink additions

a karma road map

Every month, I get an assignment via postcard subscription.
I was supposed to draw a map, that month. This is what happened. :) is the best postcard subscription...ever.
I also can say that I love her zines. Her writing is very heartfelt and beautiful.


sidewalk chalk is fun

more bears

oh, bananagrams

I highly recommend trying out the game "bananagrams" to anyone who enjoys Scrabble, crossword puzzles, or words. Comes in a banana-shaped pouch, which is just tooooo cute.

snail-peacock and a bear...and a pen...and stuff.

nerd love

I submitted a professional-looking version of the nerd heart to the dELia's t-shirt contest last month...
I didn't win!
I don't think teenage girls really love nerds as much as they say they do. (That's their target market.)
Probably would have done better with vampires!

mom tattoo

I'm pretty sure everyone should have a mom tattoo.

typewriters and unicorns and teacups

silly circuitry

So, a dear friend of mine requested that I make a textile design about circuitry.
This is what I started thinking about. It's in the works!

foxy lady postcard

Oh yeah, this one definitely needed to be a postcard.
Available now at under the "awesome postcards" section.

dog spit

It's scary to think that I could, at any given moment, be lovingly (ok, obsessively) covered in gross dog spit.

more twisted business replies

Looks like I've been busier than I can recall!

more pickle paintings than you can shake a stick at

I am working on a few more - not pictured, since they are unfinished - but something tells me they'd be charming as a set. Oh, I flatter myself, as usual. :)

mailbox mystery!

I have a real, true mailbox mystery on my hands!
I found this cute little note, folded and torn up in my mailbox this morning. There was no envelope, no postage, no address. The outside simply says, in blue crayon, "To Steph."
It wasn't even sitting on top of the regular mail, but just in front of it, like a quickly tossed afterthought. Having seen the mail truck go by today, I know she barely paused at the box...the whole transaction took less than a second.
(Not that I wait for the mail truck every day...but I do know the sound of the engine!)
I don't know who Stephanie is...but I'm glad to see she was so good to Miss Unknown.
Do you think the mail lady thought I would enjoy it, since there are so many weird things leaving and arriving from this mailbox? Or did the young sender hand deliver it to the wrong house? There really aren't that many young kids in the neighborhood.

I am enjoying the mystery. I wonder what Stephanie did!

two horns are better than none - a postcard

They'd just be plain old horses, otherwise.

I think I have spent all day fixing artwork digitally and sending things off to be printed...
I definitely didn't think I'd be so tired afterwards.
Anyway, I felt I had one last upload left in me tonight - so here you can see, in its original,
straight-from-the-sketchbook current favorite postcard design.
(It's not one of the many designs I sent to be printed today, but I don't think I have previously announced its existence.)

I love unicorns.
I love rainbows.
And I love postcards.
Seemed like a natural combination of ideas.
And I'm working on another unicorn postcard, too!

Anyway, here's the full description of the silliness.
