no fucking way
Hi everyone! It’s the holidays coming up, so this week I’ve opened up my shop up and released some things that haven’t been up on there yet. I’m also trying to move in the early part of the year so it’s time to downsize and let some of this stuff go. I’m putting this stuff up at pretty low prices so please take advantage!
There’s a bunch of original artwork for $30, tote bags for $15, lavender sachets and Scout Books for $10, mystery art packs for $35, and discounts on most all the other work up there! Plus each order for flat artwork (prints, original art, mystery packs) will get a free print of some sort. I’ll be taking the shop back down Friday night and putting it back up at the start of next year, so take advantage!
Today I had the pleasure of making genuine ultramarine blue oil paint. The pigment, powdered lapis lazuli, creates one of the most sought after blue paints in all of art history. It is a paint that Vermeer used extensively.
While I’m not going to share the paint (it’s expensive!), I will share these nearly pornographic photos of the the paint-making process.

Suso33 New Mural - Madrid, Spain
Suso33 spent the last few days perched on a yellow crane to work on this impressive new piece on the streets of Madrid, Spain.
Using a rather simple technique, the Spanish artist painted a brilliant piece which enters directly amongst our favourite artworks this year.
Student teaching is almost over! It’s both a happy moment and a sad one. I am happy to find a full time teaching position that will actually pay me, but I am going to miss my current students like crazy. They’ll be fine without me, but I’ll feel sad knowing they are making art and I won’t be able to see it.
The students had to use at least 2 different mediums on their cards (collage, paint, pen, etc). and the finished works of art were really interesting!
