I had the most incredible surprise of my life last night. I truly had no idea the party was planned and I was genuinely confused the moment I walked through the door. To be surrounded by friends and family... it was overwhelming.

I owe a big THANK YOU to Dev, my sister Kim and Patrick, my folks, Lily and Dru - you schemers!, my relatives and all of my amazing friends I've grown to know and love all of these years. I'm the luckiest person in the world having you all in my life.

I turn 40 next week... I've had mixed feelings about it. This past year, I've talked with Dev and Kim about the feelings I had about how silly it seemed to do 'Stumpytown' in my 'old age'. They both have been unbelievably supportive and encouraging... I feel embarrassed that thought had crossed my mind.

My husband and friends created a Stumpytown Tribute show for me! I cannot believe they did this. I was blown away. I still am speechless...

Thank you to everyone for an amazing birthday. I will never forget it. You have no idea how much it meant to me too see you all there last night. I LOVE YOU ALL!

Dev, Kim & Patrick... THANK YOU SO MUCH.

And mah, I can't believe you baked all of those cookies! (actually, I can. Ah, childhood memories.) Christy, thank you for the beautiful and insanely delicious German Chocolate cake... I'm still eating it!

The artists create original drawings while the public is invited to enjoy refreshments, observe the artists at work and purchase art as it is completed. None of the work is over $200.00, making it an affordable way to purchase works from some of your favorite Seattle artists. "

Johnny Drama...

Today, Dev sent around a link of a great caricature artist, Paul Linsley.
I LOVE his LOST characters. It got me inspired to attempt a caricature (non-stumpytown style) of Kevin Dillon as Johnny 'Drama'! I didn't distort his face enough, but its been a while since I've done this sort of thing.

Illustration Friday : Wrapped

...wrapped in plastic...

Man, I haven't watched Twin Peaks in since it aired in 1990. I'd like to rent the series again - I remember being disappointed in the movie because it wasn't nearly as disturbing as I thought it would be.

Anyways... here ya go.

Dev's Birthday gift: Stumpy Batman!

Hey Everybody!
I made this for Dev (based off of my StumpyFriends painting for the 'Saturday Morning' show.) I started the pattern around the time I made Admiral Ackbar, and luckily things cooled down at work enough to give me some time to make this for his birthday. YAY!
He is about 16 inches tall.

It's been too long since my last post. We've been so busy at Loose Cannon these past few months, I haven't had any time to create new works for Stumpytown. I'm embarrassed I haven't even turned ON my home computer since last fall, and not to mention frustrated - I've been having problems w/my email! (getting and sending) I may have to change my email address... again. GREAT.

Anyways, here are a few additional images! Enjoy!
