new boxes

i'm working on some new boxes for the upcoming show. it will be on may 21st, and will be called "altogether curious". we will be sending out invitations on or about may 1st. if you would like to be on our mailing list, you can either comment here, or go onto and send info from there. either a physical address or an email is fine. we never share our lists, they are only used for sending invites and occasional info about sk3tchbook.

anyway, this is the start of a new box. the frame isn't show here because i am still working on it. the entire composition is made of game pieces (mostly vintage with a few newer ones thrown in for color and fit). this took me hours to create because i wanted a perfect fit for the elements. i kinda like it!! in real life it looks a lot richer because you can see the layers more clearly.

i'm also working on "bird box 2" which is looking pretty nice so far. i hope to finish today. i think it will be posted by the end of the week. i covered the frame with pages from an old coloring book that was colored in about 60 years ago. the crayon was still vibrant and the artists did a great job of staying in the lines! i used to have the worst time with that! my mother always got frustrated with me for my lack of neatness. seems like i am finally getting better in my artwork. now all i need to do is transfer that skill to my surroundings!
