In our larger bathroom at the tattoo studio, we had a wall with no art on it still, so S finally told me to buy a large canvas and make something new to hang there. Squeeee! Any excuse to make big art. You know I love me some figurative art, so, I painted this:
But because it’s a tattoo studio, I didn’t stop there, lol:
That’s right, I gave her a full tattoo sleeve, because hell yeah.

It’s shameless promotion time again, kids. Just in time for the holidays, I’ve uploaded some new images to put onto various thingsies and stuffsies for your favorite person who needs more thingsies and stuffsies. Below is but a sampling, an appetizer, an amuse-bouche. There are literally thousands of options. You can shop through my collections on Fine Art America, Pixels, RedBubble, CafePress, and VIDA. And most of the sites are doing some kind of Cyber Monday promo, so it’s worth taking a look. They all offer a little something different, so if you see an image you like on one site, but you’re hoping to find it offered on another product, check one of the other sites because you might get lucky.
Y’all. There are women who make matching outfits for themselves and their kids. There are kids who make matching outfits for themselves and their dolls. And then there’s me. I want to dress like my paintings all the time. Allsies. For my birthday, I splurged and got one of my paintings printed onto a dress. I’d been coveting this thing for months. I’m a serious coveter. If there was a gold medal in coveting clothes that look like your paintings, I’d win that shit. Here is me, in my painting.
I even wore my art to an art opening that celebrated last year’s grant winners from the United Arts Council. Because I’m cool like that. And then I stood next to one of my paintings holding my book that I won the grant for. And every time someone complimented me on my dress, I opened up my book to this painting and awkwardly showed them how “awesome” I am. Because, again, I’m cool like that. And also because I’m totally terrified in situations like that and forget that I know how to speak English (not the best thing when you supposedly wrote a book in English).
Luckily (or unfortunately, depending on your perspective), there are sites for such obsessions as putting your artwork on all sorts of merchandis-y crap (I’ve already shared several examples of my art on swag with you here and here). And probably support groups. And I discovered a new site. And now I want all the thingsies. There’s just one sliiiiiight glitch. I don’t have all the monies. But if I did, holy shit. I’d dress only in my own artwork. Fuck LuLaRoe. This is LuLaEm.
I’m totally addicted to VIDA design now. A few examples of the schtuffs that I want:
And yes, I’m just getting started. Now that I’ve discovered this site, I can’t stop. I can’t actually buy any of the things I’m making, but a girl can dream. Someday, when I’m rich and hopefully not too famous (a girl does like to be able to run to the grocery store without getting all dolled up for the paparazzi), I will match every painting I’ve ever made. Yaaaaaaaaasssssss, bitchez. You can check in and see what’s included in my collection so far on VIDA here.
Now, quick! Buy all my thingsies and make me jealous (and rich so I can buy them myself)!
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, which means you’re now scrambling to figure out a gift to give to your mom or the mother of your children. Much like you or your father, she doesn’t really want a neck tie. What she really wants is art. Glorious, wonderful art. Or art on awesome shit, courtesy of yours truly. Need some ideas? Ask, and ye shall receive.
On FineArtAmerica.com, Pixels.com, Redbubble.com, and CafePress.com, you can find most of my art available on a boat load of swag – not that you need a boat load. You don’t even have a boat. Or maybe you do, in which case, can I go on a boat ride? Here’s a small sampling:
Is original art more her thing? Well I just so happen to, you know, make art. I also just so happen to, on occasion, sell art. You can purchase said original art through my website. And if you purchase from my store between now and May 3rd, you can get 10% off your order! Just use coupon code ILOVEMOM when you check out. Here are a few paintings to choose from:
And finally, give her a hug from me and tell her she’s kicking ass at this whole life-of-a-mom thing, ’cause that shit’s no joke, y’all.
Am I the only one who wants to put my bourbon painting all over water bottles? I mean, sure, it looks great on something like a flask or a shot glass.
But for some reason, I really want to go do something athletic so that I can drink out of a water bottle that has a painting of bourbon on it. This is really the only reason I would ever want to do anything athletic. I also like it on a travel mug. I kind of want to get pulled over by a cop and take a nice big drink out of a travel mug with a picture of bourbon on it just to mess with him. (This may not be the best idea I ever had.)
My absolute favorite, though, is the kids sippy cup. Reason #43534 that I probably shouldn’t have children.
