Alley Cat! It’s been a while since I made a relief print, but I had fun. I have some process pics on this I may post later.
Alley Cat Patch, 2014. Linocut on fabric, 5x7”
Vickie and I are getting subconscious messages from each other or something, because I made a cat patch as well. Mine is much less regal. I’ve been referring to this design as “Bad Pussy,” but my mom reads this blog, so…Alley Cat.
What I’m Working on, February 2014:
1. An artwork I’m making as my way of mourning the loss of Sushi World, Dallas’ 24-hour sushi bar.
2. A set of retro Sci-Fi themed valentines
3. Personal, weekly drawings relating to spirituality. I’ve been making these for several months now, but I’m working on putting them online somewhere quietly.
4. Comics. This one is real dumb, but it may see the light of day when the time comes.
I haven’t uploaded a sketchbook page in a while. Here are some sketches of me working through ideas for the Mary Toft portrait.

Super List Saturday, March 2, 2013: 12 Obscure Films You Should Consider Viewing.
This week’s list is a companion to 12 Movies You’re Angry I Haven’t Seen. I won’t be angry if you don’t see these films, but I recommend all of them heartily. The first three titles in this list are all public domain and easy to find online. I believe the same is true for C’etait Un Rendezvous as well, and it’s also only eight-and-a-half minutes long.
