I had such plans! I was going to take pics of the hat with all the names in of peeps that commented on my last post - then i was going to take pics of my daughter reaching in and grabbing the lucky winners name - and then take a pic of said winner's name! But i turn on my camera and this is what i see "Battery Exhausted" - and do you think i can find the battery charger?! Of course not because that would take EFFORT - which i do not have right now because i'm SICK. And DraMATic. (hate being sick)...

anywayz, i took a scan of the winners name instead:

and it is.........

LaRusc Studio!!!
email me your address for all your loot!

Thank you to everyone that posted - i'm so glad someone's reading this blog and hopefully enjoying it a little bit.. If you didn't win this time, I'll be sure to have another giveaway hopefully before the holidays just for fun - thanks so much again for reading my wee little blog and for helping me celebrate it's four-year annivesary!! xoxox

Coming up for Nom-Noms!

Artist Matt Sullivan asked a bunch of other artists to create work for a just-for-fun project based on this theme: "The Thing that Ate Stuff"... he's going to try to get enough to make it into a comic book. I like themes that force me to come out of my comfort zone and this one did for sure!

On another note: My blogi-versary is in TWO DAYS! Four years baby! Stay tuned for prizes and festivals and all that cool stuff! oh yeah, and parades! we'll have parades too! xoxox

Illustration Friday word is "Artificial"

The IF word is artificial but i call this "Coppelia" after the ballet of the same name.

The ballet Coppelia was written tongue-in-cheek about a crazy man that made a doll so life-like that the town heartthrob fell inlove with her and wanted to marry her. Naturally this made the crazy man even crazier and trouble ensued. This story always creeped me out, which of course made me obsessed with it.

Note: My blog's fourth year, or is it fifth year anniversary is coming up...can someone please explain to me...if it started in Aug 2006, am i celebrating the year coming up or how many years it's been alive, and...wouldn't that just mean it's my blog's 5th birthday instead of anniversary? Am i going a little crazy from this? Maybe i should make a doll and see where that goes...Anywayz, i'll be having a prizes and stuff so keep checking back if you can!
