Pizza Whipped

"Pizza Whipped", watercolor and graphite. 8x10 inches, 2012.

I'm super pleased with my pizza girl. She almost makes up for my huge art block last week!

She was created for Pony Club Gallery's, "Pizza Show" on March 6th! I'm extremely thankful to be invited to such a rad show. Definitely not one to miss if you live near Portland.

She'll be included during my print pre-orders this week, so keep an eye out or snag the original during the show!

Chocolate, our everlasting love

Today I went browsing through Target's candy aisles, expecting massive sales of what was leftover of Valentine's day goodies. Surprisingly enough there was less than a dozen pieces of chocolate left.

I managed to spot this striped package peeking out behind a bag of gummy candies.


I scanned the barcode to figure out the price, and at 99 cents it was hard to beat. It came up as Man Chocolate which made me giggle. And c'mon: Milk Chocolate & Cake batter?! Had to try it.


Conclusion: this is absolutely amazing and I wish there was a second bar. I was hoping to score one for the lovely Ms. Elizabeth Goodspeed!

Which also reminded me... I'd love to handle the branding and illustration of a candy company. How amazing would that be? If i didn't just start making chocolates myself. I think I'll do that, if even just to send to my fellow chocolate loving friends.

I love quirky chocolate flavors that go beyond adding just nuts.

If you're near a Target, go see if they have any of these bars left!

Couldn't help but think of Blood Milk the whole time I was painting her.

Clearly I have a stripe addiction, but i'm not alone in this.
