Deadpool Logo Acrylic Painting

deadpool logo painting

I've made a Deadpool hoodie, scarf, and dog jacket for my daughter. Now, we've gone a little larger.

She wanted a mural but I didn't want to sand off the shadow image left on the wall when it is someday repainted.

I considered buying a large canvas but decided to use some of the 18 inch square canvases I had on hand. Blick had a great sale and I bought a few too many canvases. I love the potential of a blank canvas.

Prime Time Clock Prime Number Math Poster

clock face with only prime numbers text prime time

I should have been a newscaster that reports on arithmetic since math puns are my favorite. OK, one of my favorites. I could say this was inspired by Don McLean's song Prime Time but my family would know I was lying, and dang, now the song is in my head on endless loop.

Twisted Sense of Humor Poster

circles balancing on rectangles text about twisted sense of humor

The moment when you realize your children have your twisted sense of humor and you're not sure if you should be proud or scared.

My husband read me this quote yesterday and I furiously wrote it down since it's so true. I find my kids to be wicked funny but the rest of the world might have another view. What do they know...

Batlady Crazy Costume Poster

Wow, even the Victorian ladies wanted to be Batman. Personally, I don't find it crazy to want to be Batman, minus all the angst. After all, today you can be anything you imagine, even if it's a little batshit crazy.

The vintage illustration sits on a light gray background with a white pattern.

What Really Happened To The Dinosaurs

Yes, that's the Starship Enterprise in the upper left corner.

We had a fish tank stored in the garage that my husband didn't want to get rid of so I filled it with dollar store dinosaurs, fake plants and rocks. I painted the vinyl dinosaurs with acrylic paint and hid them among the greenery. Some poor hapless beasts were not successful and were abducted. They are floating upwards, suspended by fishing line.  I used clear pushpins in the ceiling to attach the fish line.

I bought glow in the dark paint for beaming lines but I'm waiting until I repaint the room.

The iPad and iPhone Cases With My Designs Arrived

The iPhone and iPad cases came in the mail while I was at the cabin chasing wildlife out the door. We had eagles circling looking for a puppy snack, wolves howling and raccoons munching outside the window. The snakes and mice took turns coming in to visit and left ever so reluctantly. It's a good thing I'm from Viking stock since I chased the marauders out with my trusty broom.

I think they turned out very nice.  I would have chosen differently but I'll have to assume they know their market since I'm not their target consumer.
