Lately it’s been difficult to hit that Publish button within the dashboard of this blog… as I’m questioning what to share and what not to share… what to say and what not to say… who to talk to and trust and who not to talk to and most of all questioning what it all means.
The bigger you get the harder you fall is hitting REALLY hard lately as my life becomes more and more public. It hits home instantly when you walk outside and while waiting for the bus or are having a sip of wine with a friend or are grocery shopping and are stopped or pointed at and someone says I know you from somewhere and then they ask your name and it registers with them that you are a blogger or worse if it’s a man they recognize you from a dating site (which is somewhat creepy) especially when said man who recognizes you is someone you don’t want to be in touch with in the first place.

Here we have a portrait that I was commissioned to do of my friend, Joshua Hamilton’s wife. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

She is a petite 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
She’s a popular *ACEO and
she’ll fit right into your pocket
to to carry with you
wherever you go.
Violet the Vulva.
I created her using lightfast Prismacolor Verithin Colored Pencils and one Archival Micron Pen on acid free heavyweight paper.
Yes, you can have her to.
*ACEO – Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They must measure 2.5″ by 3.5″ and can be created from any medium. They are the size of a hockey or Magic card and a beautiful way to collect affordable art.
…because I don’t only draw the penis. I draw the vulva to.
This is drawn in a Moleskine Cahier using a Pilot G-tec C4 pen.
Fart Squirt got some giggles over on my flickr blog. I wish I could add the tickle note here that I had added over there.
