HEADS UP! ~ HANDMADE ARCADE 2015 ~

I'm back bay-baaaaay! Year #4, LET'S DO THIS!


Been working like a dog to get ready for this year's Handmade Arcade! 
I've been out of the loop for a year, but i'm ready for it.
This will be the first time my Wutariums will be for sale for the public.
If I get a good enough response, i'll head full speed into more for the future!







Fun stuffs from Fifteener

Managed to do a few special things this year:


The Mattress Factory (an awesome all installation art museum on the North Shore of Pittsburgh) has an annual Garden Party, one of the best parties held in the burgh. I sell some of my things in their gift shop all year round, and I was asked to participate in their art auction to benefit the museum. The theme this year was the letter M, so all of the artists were given mirrors to decorate in any way possible. The theme for my piece was MURDER, as my Wut dudes are good at it. By far my favourite piece i've made with them to date, and i'm glad it went to a great home!


Earlier in the year, I was considering doing Handmade Arcade again. I missed it in 2013 due to my previous shitty job killing my mojo like whoa. I received an invitation from the people who run it to participate in their first coloring book! So I accepted and this was the first draft. The final doesn't have the dotted background or the faces colored in black. We were also asked to fill out a questionnaire to go along with our drawings. There will also be a directory to highlight our booths at the show this year! I'm super excited to see the final result.


Halloween 15' was a blast. I decided to experiment with face paint and made myself look like one of my Wut dudes. Don't worry, I didn't leave the house like this, just for phunz.

2015 Updates

Holy moly, I haven't updated this since February! So much has changed since then: I quit my terrible job and got an amazing new one, i've been insanely sick throughout this entire year, I met Larry David and he hugged me... but most importantly I'VE BEEN MAKING ART STUFFS AGAIN!!!!1!

In 2015, i've brought my Wut dudes into the third dimension with 'Wutariums' : Glass terrariums with dead/dried flowers and plants with sculpey clay Wut guys. Here are some of my favourite examples.






So far i've had a lot of positive response on these, and i'm excited to get them out to the public. They're cute, they're dicks, and they're headed for a shelf near you!
