and what better way to celebrate than with a new picture of the billboards. Yes, we brought the sculptures to Houston Street and Sullivan and had a little photo shoot!

NUT Job!

MAD "20 Dumbest People, Events and Things of 2008" #497 January 2009
Who else but the brilliant minds at MAD Magazine and writer Josh Eiserike could come up with this insane idea?

Yes, it is Jesse Jackson as a nutcracker! Why? because he wants to cut Obama's nuts off. He said it himself- live on TV. Can't make this stuff up.

I am just so glad to be back in MAD 20!!!! Thank you Sam + John!

inspiration overload!

Joe Scarpulla, David Bell, Amy Grant
One week ago today (I would have posted this sooner but I've been covered in Sculpey) we went with the fabulous Amy Grant (my former Parsons student, turned assistant and now... amazing friend!) to visit the studio of two other of my former students- the ridiculously talented David Bell and Joe Scarpulla.

They showed us the incredible sets and figures they've built for their stop motion film. We even got to see some of the footage which blew us all away! What a HUGE treat we're in for when this film is finished. Personally, I cannot wait!

These guys make me feel like anything is possible. They taught themselves how to build armatures for stop motion, how to make molds, what equipment to use in terms of cameras and lighting, the programs, the list goes on.... So inspiring! Thanks guys!

Rock 'n' Roll Star

Noel Gallagher of OASIS, unpainted, Super Sculpey

Oh Noel! I am so sorry love, but I'll have to put you on the shelf yet again. I just got a very exciting job in from one of my favorite art directors at the Wall St Journal.

Somehow, I am sure you'll wait for me.

oh help, am i really talking to my sculptures?

say hello to my little friends

Yessssss! More phone kiosk sightings on 3rd Avenue.

Larger than Life

We found the giant MasterCard Ads on Houston Street and the corner of Sullivan... There are three in a row! How funny to see my little sculptures get so big.
