House Birdhouse or Birdhouse House?

This was a house that I transformed out of a wood block as part of the Art Brownie Project a while back.  However, on the original house, the main feature was the roof - which I painstakingly shingled as you would a real roof - only in miniature.  (I had also built steps, a deck and garbage and recycling bins).  After spending so much time on the roof, I kinda slapped on some paint without too much detail and was never really satisfied with it.  So I decided to give it a facelift, or a "renovation" if you will!  I decided to change it into a birdhouse!  I began by cleaning it up  - adding a little more detail to the brickwork etc.  I added a chimney, a drainpipe (previously painted on), threw some birdseed on the upper deck, drilled a hole, added a perch and oila!  The only thing missing - as was suggested to me - were birds.  So I made some out of Super Sculpey and here we are, House Birdhouse!

Don't take any wooden underwear!

OK I did these a while ago, you can still go see 'em at Index G Gallery.  Later on I did a larger version for a show at Manta Contemporary in Hamilton.  I have to admit, they are pretty filthy looking.  Watch out for splinters!  Ouch!

A penny for your thoughts

Well the times, certainly are a changin'.  As I commented on my last post, the Canadian government has officially stopped production of the penny, they will slowly be phased out and soon, they will be nothing but a distant memory.

Pennies from Heaven

It's official, they stopped making pennies today.

Heeeere's Buddy...

Yesterday being the anniversary of the plane crash that took Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, I wanted to post something here.  I am in the process of inking, colouring and all that, so check back soon.
