New Stuff

Well, I haven't shown any new work on the blog in a while. I have been very, very busy. You see, I applied to four fall shows this year and was accepted in all four. I very naively committed to do all four shows. I didn't realize the implications of what this was going to do to my after(work)life. The end of sleep as I once knew it. Here are two new pieces that are out on loan for a showing of beautiful designer, one of a kind, leather and suede couture.
The black and grey piece is entitled Twilight. I have not titled the blue/green piece yet.

Tall Dave in the media Friday

For those of you who don't know Dave, he is one of my very closest friends. Dave lives in Milwaukee and we dated for a while. This is a picture from back then, when he was visiting me in Kansas. I am 6 feet tall, and Dave is 7 foot 4 inches tall.
Dave is visiting KC this weekend with the Milwaukee Tall Club, which is joining forces with the Kansas City Skyliners to have a fun weekend gathering. Tall clubs promote awareness of the issues and challenges of being very tall, and also of genetic disorders which are characterized by tallness. In my past involvement with the Milwaukee Tall Club, they have raised money through auctions and events to support research of Marfan Syndrome. There are many identifiable characteristics of Marfan Syndrome. But the problem is most people have never heard of it.
There have been many advances in surgical technology and now a promising new drug that can be given to younger Marfan Patients. Please take the time to visit and learn about this potentially deady genetic disorder.
Dave will be interviewed and broadcast Friday. These are the times and channels:
WDAF Fox 4 at 8:20 a.m.
KMBC-TV the local ABC channel at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 p.m on Friday evening.
Please tune in. He will be talking about Marfan. For the record, Dave does not have Marfan, but a similar connective tissue disorder.

Remember this picture?

Yes, that's right. It's the monkey bread again. Way back when I first started this blog, I emphatically told you guys that I would PAY good money if someone would make one of these things for me from scratch (no corner cutting). Well no one responded, so I felt the need to post on this again. I WANT IT! My birthday is coming up pretty soon, so PLEASE people, somebody please make me a dome of monkey bread. I will never forget your kindness and effort. This picture and the recipe with instructions can be found at Bake and Shake.

Airship extraordinaire!

Okay people, I have resisted putting this on my blog up to this point. But those of you who know me know that I love dirigibles, blimps, airships, whatever you want to call them. Let me introduce to you the HYPER BLIMP. Here is the definition: Hyperblimp: Ultra-streamlined, low drag, helium-filled, airship that slips through the air, rather than pushing it aside. Propelled by central axis rear propeller, capable of moving in any direction. Link to watch videos
