So I Am Proud

My brother from another mother has his daughter featured on Kmart's Baby Alive box. She is so adorable!
I've never been a fan of dolls but I had to buy the box. I think my son and I will alter Baby Alive. I've been thinking about he and I doing some mixed media assemblage over the summer. I was inspired by Michael Demeng and the class he taught at Art and Soul in 2009 titled Island of Demented Toys.

(theses photos were taken from the Urban Craft Center's website, where he also taught that class and they have better photos!)

Inspiring Art

I am always looking for art for my home that makes me happy. What you surround yourself with in your home should inspire you and make you feel happy. That is how I feel about the whimsical artwork that has been chosen for my home.

The top photo includes paintings by Marisa Haedike, Kill Taupe, and Spiral Forest Studios and the bottom is artwork by Brooklyn artist John Hung Ha.
