Mt. St. Helens

I’ll have limited copies of this in print at VanCAF17 this weekend, come see me at table D-11! 

I hadn’t even realized that it’s the anniversary of the eruption today (May 18, 1980) – I think Mt St Helens herself possessed me to make this in a hurry. 

This self-portrait I took back in 2006 with Mt. St. Helens is still one of my favorites.

She’s gorgeous ❤️

Art Heist

I have no idea which blog to put this in, so you’re welcome in advance.

My brother and I talk to each other approximately once or twice a year. Quality over quantity, you get the idea. We’re only three years apart, and our sense of humor and love for terrible things is identical. For example, we amused ourselves for years by reliving each other’s epic earwax stories (he won—I may have needed medical intervention for a pea-size blockage, but he had a photo that required a coin for a sense of scale).

Anyways, when I randomly got a text message from him out of nowhere yesterday, I knew it was going to be good.

That’s right

This beauty. I must have it. This must be mine.

My brother’s texts reappeared again today (amazing, two days in a row! We are truly up to something!), and he had talked to the curator for the art show at his work regarding the price of the piece.

The dimensions, first off:

36 inches tall by 48 inches wide

That is: 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide

Yes

The price is set at $900. For an original masterpiece? Of such magnitude? I HAVE to have it. This won’t be for sale for a year, that is plenty of time to justify spending $900 for a one-of-a-kind original artwork that transcends species barriers like this.

So I am currently attempting to intimidate the artist, via the curator, with my (super timid) brother acting as an intermediary, into agreeing to sell the painting to me after the show ends in a year, when I can have it shipped from Seattle to Texas, and have it form the centerpiece of my Disturbing Bird Art Wall, because I’ve got plenty of bird art, but oh boy it would all take on a new perspective with this in the center.

Stay tuned (?!)

Lol @lexiellama okay:

It’s a long story, but I acquired this painting over 10 tears ago, and fought over this painting too (it had been abandoned by its previous owner). I slept with it next to my bed for a while.

For a while, every time I look at it, something in it had changed.

Y’all know how I can find a microscopic caterpillar from a mile away? I notice details.

They’ve gotta be haunted. At the time, I had a bunch of pet rabbits. They have all left me, but I like to think they’re haunting me through this damn painting (which is terrible and which I love immensely). Probably the only material possession I am more attached to than this painting is the unpainted ceramic snail I bought 17 years ago, and haven’t painted because it’s too perfect and I’m not ready to shoulder that burden.

bowelfly:

every year at university i give a lecture to the parasitology undergrads about myiasis and i had a post here that i reblog every year to celebrate it but apparently tumblr just straight up deleted it, not even a review or anything. i’m curious if that was because it contained the phrase “dick maggots” or because the fleshy mosaic sets off the No Fun Allowed robots. or i’m just really bad at looking through my archive. anyway here it is again so let’s see of it gets zapped.

If there’s not a band called “Dick Maggots” where all the members dress up as flies… there needs to be.

$900 is definitely low for a piece of that size and quality, not to mention its sheer cultural impact.

You don’t need a full year to justify buying this. You need 1 day to decide, and then 364 days to plan a party at your house for its unveiling.

The artist is a STILL UNNAMED (to me? To my brother also?) student (!!!) at Cornish, a fine arts university in Seattle. Hence the SUPER LOW BARGAIN PRICE (I agree, $900?! For an original painting LARGER THAN ME?!).

Who’s still deciding? The second I saw the image my brother sent to me, even though he admitted he kinda wanted it, I was thinking, “oh no bitch that painting is MINE.” Luckily for me, my brother is practically a Buddhist monk so fighting him for material possessions is super easy 😂

I just need to convince the curator/artist to sell the damn thing an entire year early. Which, I mean, college student, should be easy, right? Except I’m unemployed so, lol, I kinda need to wait until I have a job so I know I won’t be homeless, but with a super rad original painting to live under in a year. So that’s where the heist part comes in. We’re trying to convince them to agree to sell it to me in a year, but like, not yet. My brother did agree to put down a deposit though!

I trust you’ll update us when you find their name, this is the most important thing in my life rn

You’re definitely going to make this student’s day, I would’ve FLIPPED to have a few hundred bucks come in alongside the validation. Hopefully it’ll give them some confidence to raise their prices, but til then…“Seeking housing: Responsible, clean, quiet person, flexible on accommodations as long as the space has a large wall for an upcoming shrine no questions please”

I can’t wait to pass the message along to the artist that they’re famous on tumblr 😂

I love this painting. Maybe not in the way they intended it to be loved, but probably much, much more passionately than they ever could have dreamed.

If you could have a social cuddly bug friend, what bug would you pick? I would have a really hard time choosing between a spider, a wasp or maybe the centipede? They are all favourites of mine… But I love so many bugs, I would find it hard to choose only one!

Give me all of them

If I could only pick one, oh man, jumping spider? Wheel bug? That’s a hard choice, they’re all so good.
