Christmas with MS Paint

Dec 11

Hiya.
I’ve added four new Christmas-colored backgrounds.

There’s also a new PDF of some printable gift tags. They’re free to print and use, though this new batch takes a little longer to load than might be expected.
On a totally unrelated note, a while back I decided that I was going to create something arty and amazing using only MS Paint. For those who have never used this magical program, MS Paint is a horrible pixelly drawing tool that comes free on your PC. It’s also been around for a very long time (I remember running it on Windows 3.1) and unlike so much software, Paint never seems to improve with time. I was planning on making some kind of MS Paint masterpiece, but then I decided that life is probably too short for this crap so I’m going to post what I’ve already done and walk away.

I’ve updated the links at the top of the site to include a link to my Spoonflower fabric shop. I get a small commission on the sale of any of my designs, and there’s 13 patterns available to choose from.

Happy Holidays!

Doctor House’s Vicodin Dream

Apr 20

Hello there.
I’ve created another embroidery. This is what it would look like if Dr. House (from the TV show House) took Vicodin (as he often does) then fell asleep and dreamed that he was in Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. What can I say? Some people handle unemployment better than others.
Oh, and seriously WTF with Amber’s ghost reappearing? The writers of House really deserve a gold star for the wacky stuff they think up.

I also made a wallpaper featuring feral versions of famous furniture. In college I was required to take a class in interior design (for reasons that are not entirely clear to me), and it left me with the ability to identify the name, designer, and year of creation of many chairs. This bizarre talent really amused my friends and family, and so for months they pointed out chairs for me to identify. I would call out the answers:

Eames Lounge, Charles and Ray Eames, 1956!
Selene Chair, Vico Magistretti, 1969!
Bistro Chair, Micheal Thonet, 1859!

Most of these facts have fallen out of my head by now. Recently I was looking up to see the prices of some of these chairs that I had to memorize, and all of them are wildly expensive. Perhaps one lucky day I will stumble upon a garage sale of some foolish person who doesn’t know the true price of a 50 year old plastic chair, and then all this knowledge will have served me some practical purpose.
