You Ain’t Never Been Blue…

Sep 3

You ain’t never been blue til you’ve had that mood indigo… Eight new backgrounds are up, all in blues.
Apologies for the months between updates, I had shit to do! I’ve moved twice since then, and have been dedicating most of my energy to fixing up an apartment that has seen better days. Among other things, I MacGyver’ed my own light fixtures out of embroidery hoops, duct tape, and pennies (9 cents to be exact), and strategically hung a gallery wall to cover up the erratically spaced electrical outlets (did someone try to plug a toaster into the ceiling?!). Now that the seemingly endless string of DIYs is winding down, I’ve found the time to share what I’ve been working on.
The ‘Excelsior’ toile took ages to make. I ran all over town to get photos and had to learn about Phrygian caps. I might make it into a fabric so that more of the details are visible.
There are also some microscope images, some improvised shibori dyed fabric, and a paisley block print made from a block ordered directly from Jaipur.


A Dash of RuPaul’s Wisdom

Feb 9


Here are 16 new backgrounds for you.

This set has some strange inspirations, including the headstones at the Trinity Church Cemetery, the family tartan, Indian block prints and a dash of RuPaul’s wisdom.
