new painting } the other g

I think this is one of my most elaborate and time-consuming Instagram posts yet. For it, I needed to remove a huge three-seater couch and fill my shelves with my 500 polyhedra. Oh, and I needed a life-size self-portrait. No biggy.

metal heart, rainbow tears

  You know what makes me cry? Watching people greet each other at the airport. I’m such a sap and it’s a great time passer, especially when you’re waiting around for a loved one to walk through those sliding doors. Rainbow tears from one with a metal heart. What makes you cry?

new watercolor painting } colorful woman/the psychology of rainbows

I’ve been feeling rather rainbow-ish lately. I’ve always loved a good rainbow; they’re so exciting to spot and so rare in this part of the world. But they’re also a throwback to the early 80s, an era in which their popularity in sartorial culture soared. I owned everything rainbow: rainbow shoelaces, rainbow-handled tote-bag, rainbow wig. […]

I keep changing this. I just added a new clip this afternoon and made it a bit more upbeat. I think I’ll keep it this way and just add more to it in the coming weeks.

fire, ice, wind and twine

I love experimenting with the elements, and this is something I’ve always wanted to do: freeze my drawings and watch them thaw out. So that’s what I did using the iPhone time-lapse feature. I love what little effort it took from me to create this video. It’s sort of like putting a dirty load into […]

until love } four hundred and seventy five

  Every now and then I consolidate two categories into one. I felt that it was apt to merge my journal entry with my Until Love project on this post.

the poly’s bid a grand farewell to CAP

What kind of a poly-mistress would I be if I didn’t allow my polyhedra to leave with somewhat of a bang? Naturally there was lots of play involved in packing my beloved ‘stars’, but lots of sweat too! I want to thank my new friend and sister-in-arms Azza for helping me out this morning.
