paper dolls

At the DIA we've had Paper Dolls as a drop-in workshop for the last two months. It's a pretty good workshop, you get lots of cool supplies like fabric and string and you can dig through the decorative paper scrap pile to find some gems. It's occationally hard to sell to boys and middle schoolers, but all the COOL boys and middle schoolers dive in and make some pretty sweet things.

I made a few dolls using the templates we provide, but I left those at the museum for samples. Today was the last day of the workshop so I made these two, they're on a date, I think they like each other.

I don't remember ever playing with paper dolls as a kid, but I sure do like cutting and gluing.


Alison Goldfrapp over at the Hallway Show this week. I don't really know who this is, but she has nice hair.

I took a break from the Hallway Show but I'm back on the wagon now.

Have you ever seen Hugh Laurie play Bertie Wooster, lovable fop, on the 90's tv show Jeeves and Wooster? It's KIND OF the best thing ever.

It's like a giraffe, but more.

New website

Also, I made a portfolio website. A real one where I have to pay to host it and everything. It's costing me 5$ dollars a month.

To break even, all I have to do hold back once a month when I feel like buying one of the following things:

1 footlong submarine sandwich
1 hot and ready pizza
2 40 oz beverages
5 junior bacon cheeseburgers

We all have to make sacrifices to be the best.

Check out my new site here:

You may have to update your links or something, since the blog domain is back to a blogspot address.

Let me know if anything is weird or broken or dumb looking.

I made it with a thing called indexhibit. It's pretty cool, I'm sure you've seen sites built with it before. It's a little bit of a plague and it might become the comics sans of minimalist webdesign. BUT. Once I figured out how to load it onto the internet, which is always a nightmare for me, it was a really easy system to work with, and uploading images takes about 2 seconds which is great, and I like how clean and organized it is. I'm going to play around more with it but I've been at this all day and I'm pretty tired.
This week's hallway show is Guy Fieri but no one's done one yet.
