Birdie Mobile

It is so great having time to simple be creative and do those projects that are just for you! Well just for my future baby. I really wanted a black and white mobile for the baby to look at when it is first born but couldn't find any I liked any where so I decided to make my own. I sketched some birdie shapes and ideas in my sketchbook and than made those shapes into 3D figures out of various fabrics and ribbons. We hung it using a wooden embroidery hoop!

Now all we need is the baby to arrive! Due in 2 weeks!

Beautiful Losers

My good friend Kathleen found out about this documentary called Beautiful Loser that was showing in a small cinema around the corner from us and a few of us went to see it tonight. It was so inspiring! It followed the development of various artists influenced by various street cultures.  It made me just want to draw and paint and express myself again. Here are a few images that inspired me, Barry Mc Gee and Thomas Campbell.
