special thanks to nick and fran over at
seizure palace screen printing
for helping to make these possible. 

and a little note for people who are not familiar with my prints,
the black line is screen printed, so the drawing is the same, then i hand color
each individual print. so each one is unique and an original unto itself. 

please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery, as i am still working hard on the show,
and will get the prints out ASAP.

my birthday at the zoo

April 23, 2009

so this post is a little overdue, as my birthday was the 3rd of march. i flew solo to the oregon zoo and it was great. a lot of the animals i don’t normally see where out and about. normally i start at the great northwest exhibit and work my way down and around, but this time i just sort of wandered aimlessly.

there are two new wolves that arrived to the zoo from minnesota  in december. the mother is a gorgeous silver color and named cheyanne, and the pup is named yazhi.

the elk were doing exactly what they always do. sitting there.

thought this was a good promo pic if these sheep were in a baaaand. i’m sorry.

bobcat01

had a great long moment with this bobcat. we just stared at each other for 30 or 40 minutes. children would come up and get right up to him and tap on the glass and he would just look around them straight at me.

and i finally went in and fed the lorikeets. this is a lot of fun. it’s only a dollar and at one point i had 4 or 5 of them on me.

April Fakeout

April 7, 2009

so we’ve had three consecutive days now of the most spectacular weather. 70’s, sunny, warm at night, the whole nine yards. this is my favorite. J says things will get worse before they get better. this is what is going on at 1907 at this very moment.

this squirrel is living the dream on our neighbor’s roof. 

and here is my new garden we (n wong, j statz & i) worked on yesterday.

at the moment i have planted peas, beets, purple carrots and kale, with some tomatoes and eggplant starts in the works and maybe broccoli raab coming soon. here is the lattice that n and i made for the peas.

and this mysterious hummingbird. i am positive i saw a female rufous hummingbird the other morning, but it was hard to see the reddish feathers in the overcast light today. so i’m not sure if she’s a rufous or a black-chinned hummingbird. either way, i’m psyched that she’s becoming a regular visitor.
