Evolution

The starting piece was a little over 3" long, and about 5/16" thick. It took about 15 hours, spread over 4 days to finish.

Went to The Butterfly House for Morpho Mania this weekend. Here're some pictures my brother took.

New Sculpture


The handle is called a "foot machine" and it came with different attachments for trimming one's feet. The brush heads are from mascara brushes--I've recently started noticing the strange shapes and styles of mascara brushes. They spin around when the handle is turned on.

The Incomparable City Museum



At least, I can't compare it to any place I've been. Except maybe Disney World, but at the City Museum you can climb on ALL the stuff, which cannot be said about Disney World.

The top two images show views from the top of these massive spiral staircases inside the building. If you survive the hike up the, I don't know, dozen or so floors, you take a spiral slide back down.

The bottom image shows how some of the walls have been tiled in old metal printing plates. Such a cool idea.

Visiting this place is like getting to pretend you're in the movie The Goonies, and that has real resonance for anyone my age.

A Micro Harvest

I'm finally able to harvest some of my tasty micro greens. I ate these with a little rice vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper. I feel healthier already.
