Pink Ladies

It was pink and black night in the Dartgun world Friday night. Here you see the Vignettes: Emie, Suzie, and me, in our special pink wigs, plus Melodie, who is a true rock star and a true friend: she bailed us out by filling in as drummer for the show (unfortunately, Billy has quite the band, and we are sad. We are also looking for a new drummer so if you know of anybody please send them our way).

Here we are on stage at the Ash Street.

Chuck and Suzie in the green room:

At Suzie's apartment getting ready before the show - we are so lucky to have a makeup artist in the band (I should say, a Beauty Dominator):

We played with Hairspray Blues:

...and the Pity Fucks (they have a rad keyboard sound):
...and it was a CD release party for Scott "Deluxe" Drake (of the Humpers fame):

But this is my picture, taken in the bathroom of me and my love:

I know I have been blogging a lot more about the band lately than I have about my art, and I'm sorry! I have been busy in the studio, but haven't had much to say about it.

I'm mostly restocking a lot of my sold designs and getting ready for the Recycled Arts Festival this coming weekend. It's June 27 - 28, 9 am - 4 pm both days, at Esther Short Park in Vancouver. This will be the fourth year that I've participated in the event. I'm looking forward to it. See photos from the 2008 and 2007 shows if you like.

I have a new wholesale order in the works for Grasshopper 510 in Chicago.

I've also been interviewed for an article that should be coming out this Thursday in the Columbian. It should be in their special section on green living called Clark County Revitalized. The article is about home decor made from recycled materials and will be published just two days before the Clark County Recycled Arts Festival - I'm really hoping it will help me sell some home decor items to Vancouverites at the show!

My kids are out of school and having loads of fun hanging around the house. We celebrated Chuck's grandma's 86th birthday at a family picnic out in the beautiful country. Juke's birthday is coming up and he is planning an Oaks Park adventure. We are also looking forward to going to the beach for the first week of July - four nights in a yurt! I am super excited. See pictures from our vacation last summer here. Yes, we will be hanging up the velvet Elvis.
