Attempts the balance between Art and Design; Form and Function.
Hey everybody! Did you know that I am touring the country this fall? These are the places you can find me. I’ll bring some comics with me, including brand new stuff you’ve never seen or even heard about. And then I will entertain you with some singing and dancing.
AND if you’re a burlesque performer, roller derby girl, or comic shop worker in any of these towns, please get in touch with me! I have things for you.
Where the fuck is Flo? Autumn 2013 edition
Gearing up to go travel around America this fall. 24 chances to see me around the Mid- and Southwest. In September I’ll be solo performing at the Michigan Burlesque Festival, and I’ll be spending all of October living on a red school bus traveling around with Super Happy Funtime Burlesque and bringing our weird blend of striptease, comedy, and rock show to a town that is possibly near you.

Bees and the Honey. An update of a previous collaborative piece. Another repeat pattern, nice to make with nature themes.
Last week I participated in the HARD FEMME show at Con Artist Crew Gallery in Grand Rapids, MI. The show went amazingly well, and I was so impressed with all the work in the show. It was a really positive, great experience. The Bandit Zine was also there, putting out some wonderful work as usual!
I’ll be doing a more comprehensive write up of the show later, once some of the photos from the night itself start popping up! I was workin’ the print table all night so I didn’t really have a chance to snap any pictures. BIG thanks to Glucose Girl for putting this whole thing together!
Here are the two pieces I put into the show. I was looking to create somewhat ambiguous figures, mixing masculine and feminine, life and death, the grotesque and the beautiful. I’d like to do more in this series, and look for my Etsy shop to open soon for prints and other goodies!!
Glucose Girls ‘The Art of Miranda Sharp’
Quick Review on ‘Large Dollop Headband’ in pink.
I’m lucky enough to have known Miranda for a few years and really see her develop into an incredible artist (even if I’ve only been watching from the sidelines!).
I’ve always wanted to purchase one of her headbands, seeing as I’m a headband connoisseur with over 200 in my collection. I decided to go for the Large Dollop Headband because I go big, or not at all! I’m incredibly happy with it, the quality of the band itself is fabulous! It’s a strong, smooth, matte plastic and doesn’t feel like it’s going to snap in half on my head (like many headbands do). The cream drops are adorable and it’s really comfortable!
Miranda was sweet enough to send it with a few extra goodies for me and a really cute message on the back of her beautiful artwork. (but that may be special treatment for friends only ;) ) Nonetheless, I sincerely recommend her headbands and stickers and art and her etsy shop in general!
5 sugary dollops out of 5!
Awwwwhhh I’ve known this lovely lady since my awkward tween years. Thanks for being so awesome and supportive!
A Song of Ice and Fire Illustrated Maps Part 1: Westeros
Artist J.E. Fullerton (AKA: Other-In-Law) made these amazing maps a few years ago (apparently using only MS-Paint!) but has since taken them down. Thankfully, many fans of ASoIaF saved and re-posted them for those of us who didn’t catch them the first time.
There’s no one place I know of that has all the high res versions, so I needed to do some detective work find the best possible images. Hopefully, Tumblr doesn’t resize them too much.
If you know where I can download higher res ones, let me know
Speaking of high res, here’s a download link to an enormous ASSEMBLED version of all the maps above: GIANT MAP!
Part 2: Essos and misc…
Bloody Hell, this is amazing :-o The style is brilliant - could spend hours looking through all the lovely detail! Thanks for putting together /salute
Olfa is an experimental project involving a conversation between barriers and borders, a hypothesis of a designed future, choreography of a dance move, and development of a context.
The object created is a glass-blown facemask and a collection of scents that represent a range of currencies in the future. In this post-apocalyptic future world, humans have been driven underground, and we as a species have reverted back to the primal dependency on smell. It has created a tool for the governing religious body to implement a ritualistic donation currency, from one cent of white noise scent up to $1B Honey scent (the disappearance of real honey in 2043 was seen as the first sign of the approaching apocalypse a few years later).
