Welcome to the home of the Beastlies!

Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!

      Aquarium trip helped renew some inspiration on this guy. Now to finish all those scales…

      We are still fundraising for the Last Apothecary on Kickstarter! This project is very near and dear to my heart. It combines Burning Man shenanigans, really intense and immersive worldbuilding, haunted houses, deserted space planets, and an exploration of the evolution of ritual and tradition in a future space diaspora. 

      The Kickstarter also allows you to own a piece of the Last Apothecary, all designed and fabricated by one of the amazing craftspeople and fabricators working on this thing.

      Thank you for your support. <3 

      Kickstarter Link!

      My art partner Shing is doing this crazy thing right now. Perhaps you want to follow/support the progress?

    • Retreat Planning Journal 2.4

      I’m leaving for the retreat in just over a week and I still have about four thousand things to do. I’m getting there a little early to help our wonderful host buy truckloads of groceries and get things set up. Our host also happens to be someone I’ve been friends with since I was 10, so it’ll be nice to spend a little time with her before everyone else arrives. 

      I’m still sweating about grocery logistics, the weight of all my art supplies in my luggage, over-scheduling/under-scheduling the week, whether the last four kit components will arrive to me in time… actually, it helps to see that list written down. It feels more manageable when I look at it here.

      Crafting this retreat these past couple years has been very important to me, even more so than I was expecting. I kind of still can’t believe it actually WORKED last year, and now it looks like that might be a pattern.  In fact, it’s worked so well that there’s been some discussion of making this something we could possibly offer to other people in the future.  So if you’re one of the people who has contacted me over the past year to ask about joining this, you might be in luck next year. Maybe. I don’t know. But it seems possible. There’s a lot of number crunching to be done between now and that being a reality.
