I'm all ready to go back to school, with my backpack and pillows! Just kidding. I don't go to school anymore. But I did take a lot of naps. And I did like to be comfortable and stylish. So I'd search out cool artists I wanted to support and buy their stuff. Well, it just... Continue Reading →
Since this was always one of my favorite pieces, I had saved writing about it on here for later in my series of prints, and I eventually forgot to write about it. But since I recently made a couple of prints of it available on my etsy shop, I figure this would be a good... Continue Reading →
I've hardly talked at all about my printmaking on here, except for a fantastic Thanksgiving post (whoops and I posted "Mama's lil Punk" I forgot about that). I had a lot of fun learning printmaking in Italy and I think some of my best work came from that period. Good teachers always help. This was... Continue Reading →
For a very short time, I had a thing going for the number ten thousand and song lyrics in my titles. I'm glad that didn't stick, but I think it's what pushed me to choose "Tenthousandunicons" as a name for myself.

I'm not sure why, because I had switched to Art a while before I graduated that spring. It's funny, because I think I did my best work in community college... Continue Reading →

I kinda hated that, too. Then we got to choose our own subject matter for a still life. Our teacher, Al asked... Continue Reading →
This is a painting I did for my brother. It's something I had sketched out almost a year prior to painting it, I think around the time I was first reading about Buddhism. I was sorta fascinated with connected bodies- multiple beings joined together. This image is about disillusionment and finding your true self.
I was taking a life drawing class at my community college in the spring of 2010. We had an assignment to draw 25 hands and 25 feet. Our teacher meant for us to draw one "pose" after another on the paper. I knew that would drive me insane, or worse, bore me to tears. I... Continue Reading →
