So Youn Lee, “Shooting Star” Oil Painting


posted 2 weeks ago with 2 notes


Call for submissions!

Issue #1 of Strange Altars is in the works! The theme of the first issue is FOOD and the (initial/draft) deadline is April 15, 2014.

Please keep in mind that FOOD is a very broad and loose theme, and that sustenance and appetites (or lack of, or denial of) color so many things. The idea of FOOD as a big and juicy concept was perhaps prompted by a question (about “affection”) posed by sexartandpolitics, and by a piece of writing by eatdrinkdie.

We are each privately laboring, creating intimate, personal work and sharing it with strangers who we ‘know’. Strange Altars celebrates not only the act of private creation, but also the impulse to share and the craving for intimacy. Leonard Cohen said “let’s be alone together; let’s see if we’re that strong”; Strange Altars proposes the opposite side of the same coin: let’s be together, alone.

Strange Altars is a semi-anual zine that hopes to re-imagine what it can mean to experience creative work shared by others: writing that you hear, pages you want to taste, animation you can hold. Each issue will exist in three versions: digital, print, and boxed (more “object-based”?), with some content exclusive to each format, due to the physical/technological limitations of each type of media, so please do not feel obligated to think within the confines of “printable on paper” when considering material for submission. Serial/sequential/multi-issue material is also welcome.

It will take some time to figure out how to translate the work into publication. The April 15th deadline is just to get a loose idea of what the pieces of the whole will be.

Please send questions, inquiries, complete submissions, and proposals to Please only submit work that you have authored/created and (in the case of previously published material) which you have permission to re-publish.

For completed work (if relevant and applicable to the media/format):

  • Label files with name + numeration (e.g. lastname_firstname_1.jpg)
  • Date the work and include title
  • Include a short description or statement about the work (if desired)
  • Attach an artist/author bio (if desired)
  • Include a link to your website (if desired)

(stay tuned)

Arsecakes. I bought the wrong kind of resin.

I’ll be celebrating 6 years in the hobby this April 8th (Rose’s arrival anniversary) and my Tumblr blog just turned 3, so I thought, why not do something fun as a thank you to those who have been following me? :)

Enjoy! Also, I apologize for the length of the post, I hope it isn’t too bothersome. D8

These guys don’t sweat anyway, so why the hell not?

THERE WAS ACTUAL FEMSLASH OF THIS IN THE NINETIES. I shit you not. And I can’t find it anywhere now and that makes me sad. Plus, I fear it may read as crappy now to my old jaded eyes. BUT AT LEAST PEOPLE ACTUALLY WROTE THIS.

If you were thinking of commissioning me….
I just lost my job.
My minimum-wage contract ended and they ran out of money. So they can’t keep me on. I’m working on a new art show this summer/autumn but I still need to live (and buy materials for that). So yeah, point me towards jobs for experienced art and museum workers and freelance illustration. I’ll take on anything right now.

#personal blah   #:(  

Sometimes I’m working on a new pic and I just look at one layer and it kinda works on its own. 

Gold leaf! Gold leaf on everything!

It was sunny half an hour ago. Now this. WTF, weather?


Anyone wanna give this little guy a name?

Beevis. Call him Beevis. Or Clive, or Melvin. Or Whatever… …nice painting BTW.

Still putting in a lot of work for a little bit of progress. Like how they’re working out though.

I just found one of my abandoned early head sculpts and I had to apologise to it. Like, alas, poor Yorick, what did I sculpt you out of? Mashed potato? In the dark?

Good to know I’m improving, even better to know I can go back to stuff and re-work it. >.>
