Random Acts of Surly Art

I know I have been pretty quiet on this blog as of late but that’s just because I have been busy raising those cold-hard-cash-monies for grants to send women to TAM. For any of you following that, I have, as of today, raised enough money to send 22 women to the event. Not too shabby! I am wrapping up that program, so soon I will have more free time to post my wacky art projects on ye ol’ MAL blog. But for now I offer you some random photos of stuff that I have been diligently working on.

A new spacey Day of the Dead Skull and an ammonite design with melted glass-glaze.
I particularly to look forward to seeing men wear this design!
This will be Jupiter and 4 moons. I will paint in the gassy look of the planet later.
No wire hangers. Keep abortion safe and legal.
This “work in progress” is the typical look of my workspace as I try to stock up for the conferences I will be attending in the coming months.

  1. What people might not realize is how many projects you’re actively involved in—not just the TAM grants, which by itself is a crazy amazing thing. Add to that how much herding of us catz you do behind the scenes here, its own full-time job. Well, it’s pretty boggling.

    Also, I’m so jazzed to see the new art you’ve been doing! I do love it all. The no-wire-hangers glaze is gorgeous and the skulls and ammonite pieces kick serious ass. What fascinates me the most, though, is your work’s evolutionary arc.

    Rock on with yer Surly self!

  2. Thanks, Donna. I always feel like I am not doing enough… maybe that’s why I get so much done. Anyway, thanks for understanding why I go silent on this front now and again. xoxo
