An elegant concoction of words and cool things


Tumblr I need your help.

I’ll have a booth at CTNx again this year and I’m planning on selling some prints from Yuri and the Golden Plum (I’m looking into a way to sell them online after the expo as well). Unfortunately it’s not economical to make prints of every image I have for the project, so I have paired the group down to these images, of which I want to bring about four.

I would love it if folks would leave a comment indicating which image they would like most (1-7). This would be a big help thanks so much.

I’m going to do the same thing with another project next week.

Thanks in advance,


Thank you all so much, I think I’ll need to bring more than 4!

"Herbalist" for Flower Pepper Gallery’s "The Brave Ones" group exhibition.

This is the largest thing I’ve made in years, and maybe my most personally invested painting yet.. so yay! I think I have a new favorite. 

Opening night is this Friday, 6 PM - 10 PM! 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Downtown Dog Rescue. Please come check it out if you’re around Pasadena— I will be there! :)

Truman Streckfus Persons was born in New Orleans, Louisiana,
on this day in 1924.  He would have been 90 years old today!

"Past certain ages or certain wisdoms it is very difficult to look with wonder; it is best done when one is a child; after that, and if you are lucky, you will find a bridge of childhood and walk across it."
—from “Local Color” (1950) by Truman Capote
