Chirp Chirp

I wanted to make Melinda Gebbie something special in exchange for the wonderful sketch she did of me while we were in Aviles, Spain. This birdhouse is inspired by her graphic novel, The Lost Girls.

Lots of flowers and color.

Dorothy, perhaps?


I love incorporating old hinges.

Hope it makes it to England in one piece!

Thanks again for the wonderful sketch, Melinda!!!!

My Heart Belongs to Spain

Jason and I are in Aviles, Spain and will be heading to Barcelona in a few days. While here, we'll hang out with RM Guera, the incredible artist on he and my husband's book, Scalped. I whipped up a couple of custom hearts for Guera's young daughters.

Barbie boot.
Teddy bear.

When Guera and my husband were in NYC a couple years back, Guera was kind enough to bring me some goodies and I wanted to return the favor. Now - off to a three hour Spanish lunch!!!
