Just Keeping Warm Lately…!

We’ve been enjoying the warm indoors since we’ve been seeing a lot of snow and cold temperatures out here. Until this past week, we took a bit of a breather from new projects, so now we’re playing with some new ideas. We are also getting involved with a good-sized project in Grand Rapids, which we can’t reveal much about yet, but it’s definitely going to be interesting. We’ll keep you up to date as details emerge.

Seasons Greetings…!


Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. If you didn’t receive one of our cards this year, be sure to send us your address, and we’ll  get something to you next year.

UICA Holiday Artists’ Market…!


We will have some new work for sale at UICA’s Holiday Artists’ Market, December 4 and 5. These recent projects give new life to repurposed materials and unwanted goods. Above is a picture of some of our woodland creatures, which is a part of a larger series of found and renewed objects. We will also be selling a variety of items including: posters, t-shirts, and drawings. Happy Holidays!



Check it, David and I created a collage for the second annual 50×50 Artshow.

Art Battled…!


The art battle had a great turnout. We spent three hours cutting, pasting, spraying, and drawing, and then we put the final together with a projector, a quick set of lighting videos and an interactive button built from an old video game controller to top it off.

Congrats to Pat Perry on doing even more great work. Thanks to Neil Hubert for organizing a great event.

Buy Everything! now…!


Yesterday we cut up the Everything! drawing into 18 individual pieces. Each piece is 14″ square. It’s all drawn terribly, but there are just so many great things that people thought up. Click here to see it divided or download the wallpaper. The pieces are available now or will be sold at the UICA Holiday Artists’ Market December 4 – 5.

Each piece is $30 or ($40 shipped) and includes a list of everything on it— or at least everything we could track down.

Woodland creatures, and other new work brewing…!


Since ArtPrize is wrapping up, we have had some extra time to start working out some new project ideas. We’ve had a lot of great discoveries around the local antique and thrift shops over this last week. Check back in the upcoming weeks to get a peek at some further progress.



We worked on a drawing this summer and submitted it to ArtPrizeWe collected lists of things to draw in 5 books that were handed out to family, friends, and acquaintances. The drawing, titled Everything! includes over 1,000 things from those books, such as: ice cream licking people, lazers, and a famous person Mount Rushmore.
