homage to kachina...

I've been out of sorts lately...because my kitty Kachina passed away.

She was a great cat...and she lived to be 20 years old. That's 98 years old in people years.

She had good life...she was a loving friend...

So I like to imagine she joined the Kitty Circus...
she would have liked that...

I posted this back in it seems only right I should post it again as a
final homage to a very special family member.

Pasticcio Quartz is now available!

It's here! Issue 7 of our quARTz! (Quality Art Zine). This issue is filled with tons of great stuff that Sarah Fishburn and I have put together.

GRAFFITI, ILLUSTRATION, and STENCIL artists take the spotlight in this special Fall edition of Pasticcio. Palais du Art is jam-packed with an abundance of artists old and new. Glean firsthand tips from a celebrated Hollywood caricature artist, read an in-depth interview with Traci Bautista, digest an "editorial" piece by the renowned blogger Seth Apter, and find directions for locating maybe a zillion industrious and influential artists. Pasticcio 7 is 4 pages longer for this go-round but costs no more!

thinking small...really small

Willard Wigen creates his art on the tiniest of surfaces. Like in the eye of a needle, on the head of a pin or on an eyelash...Willard’s micro-sculptures have become so minute that they are only visible through a microscope.

How does he do it? His story is pretty amazing...and he has a book being released soon.

Check out his online store at his website to see more about Willard Wigan and his amazing micro art. People just never cease to amaze me...
