Cartoon Strips

Gracie Dahl does some very nice work with brush and ink in her cartoon strip assignment. Click on the image to see the whole strip. Some more examples below.

Trilobite Teapot

Girl Genius teapot

I've managed to get up to a little no-good, in the form of making some teapots, cups and containers inspired by Girl Genius. A few more example shots tucked away here.

Hiphopopotamus & More!

The Hiphopopotamus

Another cone 10 kiln out, and some goodness it would be badness not to rap about, like Aliya Gilmore's hippo! (Whose lyrics are indeed bottomless, just ask Flight Of The Conchords.)

Mr. Flye, Graffiti Ninja

I recently went in to my local Home Despot to pick up something to seal the surface of raku-fired pots with, to help them keep their color. After browsing through roughly two million spray cans, I chose something that looked appropriate and headed for the checkout. At the counter, a young woman asked to see my ID. I gave her a funny look.

"You card people for buying spray paint?"

"Yeah," she said. "You have to be eighteen years old - don't want kids doing graffiti."

"How much graffiti am I going to do with CLEAR spray paint?"

I made off with my clear acrylic.
