Majestic Bat-Egg

a chicken egg with a bat face drawn on it

I’m fuzzy now on the details of how this happened. I *think* I was making a cake and had my egg and butter set out to reach room temperature, and then my friend Evan came along and drew wings on either side of the egg in order to intimidate me with his spy skills. I then retaliated by drawing a bat face on the egg, which he and my husband then took pictures of each other taking pictures of.

But I’m not entirely sure. As I was going through my photos I found the bat egg in all its glory. And since I am deep in the middle of a bunch of freelance projects I can’t actually share right now…you get to experience this glory too.

Coming up, retrospectives on several (AWESOME) local shows by Arts Council of Doom artists and photos from a show you can still catch, Let’s Agree to Disagree joint show of awesome artists Amanda and Kristofer Sibrel!! In addition I’ve got a lot more older pieces, decoupage and comic concept art to share. As for my current projects, I hope to be able to share art soon!

Not your mother’s purikura 1: Dainty Manly Men

…your mother probably doesn’t do purikura anyway, but it sounded good. So what’s purikura? Wikipedia says it better than I do:

In Japan, purikura (プリクラ) refers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. The name is a shortened form of the registered trademark Purinto Kurabu (プリント倶楽部). The term derives from the English print club. Jointly developed by Atlus and Sega, the first purikura machines were sold in July 1995.

—Wikepedia page “Photo booth

Basically, you’re supposed to make pretty pictures of yourself and your giggling squad of girlfriends with “skin beauty” filters applied, little roses, sparkles and bubble stamps applied, and so on. …I believe there is more potential to the medium.

Dainty! I will be exploring it to the fullest in the months and years to come.

Incidentally I currently use the Deco Puri android app for my purikura travesties.
