derby name contest.

customized helmet
Well, I hope I'm not jumping the gun, here. I picked a name awhile ago, but I have been waiting to hear back from the registration committee whether it's a go or not. I think it could take awhile, so I would like to announce my derby name anyways, cuz I don't think it's been taken.....KRUSTY SKABZ. Yup, there were so many super funny, super clever, and super gross ones, it was a hard decision. But this one kept jumping out at me and I think it's quite suiting. I have two winners for the joint effort. Thank you to Emily Binard for the Krusty Scabs and to Leigh Munro for the spelling of Skabz. You will both get to pick something out of the Krusty Etsy shop of your liking. Thank you, everyone!!

derby name contest.

I recently joined my local derby league (FVRD) and have been skating my butt off since. I have not been on roller skates since I was a kid and have been pleasantly surprised its' kind of like riding a bike. Also, it has been totally kicking my butt. I just passed my level 1 & 2, which means, I now am ready for a derby name! I would love your help in choosing one, so here's the Krusty Derby Name Contest.
A few dumb rules and stuff:

1. The name has to have Krusty in it.
2. The prize goes to the name that is chosen for my derby name.
3. By chance there is not a name that is suiting, a winner will be randomly selected.
4. The prize will be some sort of printed art or apparel.
5. The contest ends in a week, ish.

Here is a link to the international rollergirls' master roster for inspiration and amusement:

Thanks, y'all!

My 1st practice in the brown bombers.

"daily dOOdle" weekly round-up.

Spring ahead. Why do we change the clocks again?

My sparkly, shiny lipglosses. I really like the glittery effect.

My slippers sans pattern.

A cord pile. Looks like old phone cords, usb cable thingys. I have been greatly enjoying drawing twisty like things.

Pretel quad.

I found a pile of plastic frogs on the sidewalk while walking the dog. Some small child will not be happy.

The queen of clover. St. Patty's day. Go queen!

paper world.

In my car I listen to an easy listening, oldies am station. My tape deck doesn't work anymore, my itrip broke and it's the only station that doesn't totally annoy me. They play the Carpenters often, whom I grew up with. Nostalgia set in and she became a "daily dOOdle"and then a 2 color screen print. What to do with the misprints? Cut them up for paper world!  It seemed fitting at the time because it's been raining for, like, a month.
Karen resting.

Cutting Karen.

Cutting Karen's hair.

Drawing raindrops for the background.

Behind the scenes with Karen next to my wall of band aid, which has nothing to do with anything.   She looks so alone.

Oh karen. You left us too soon.

"dailly dOOdle" weekly round-up.

Nuts, bolts, washers, and wingnuts.  I have a huge collection going. Inspiring a repeated pattern for print.

INXS. This was on KEXP this am and I was rockin' out.

Ryan's gun. He's shot a few grouse with this thang.

There was a post/ discussion about the Fishbone documentary. Unfortunately, I never saw them in my youth, but sure listened to them all the freaking time.

Ryan's car keys. I'm starting to oddly enjoy drawing confusing things.

My nail cutting tools. Why there is no hacksaw included, I don't know.

My slippers sans knit pattern. I was in a rush that morning, ok?

"daily dOOdle" weekly round-up.

This is more like a 10 day round-up. I'm a bit backed up.
A friend came to town to ride for a few days. He likes the Rumplemintz and this is what he brought over as a sort of housewarming gift. It was a sit around the table kind of night and play card and take shots. I thought I kind of hated this stuff. Reminds me of high school. Like a menthol cigarette that covers up the taste of cigarette butt. But I kind of really like it.

Big ol', circular, bamboo knitting needles. Hats are my obsession which I used to crochet all the time. I generally work in the round but I have never done this with knitting. I still haven't learned. Will somebody please teach me?

My weapons of choice. Black Sharpies are a given, and technical pencils but I always, always have a #08 black prismacolor in hand. Most of my doodles are dome with that guy.

My slip on rocketdog's with stretchy elastic. They are in a red plaid. I spray painted them black but the paint didn't stick so much. They now look...distressed.

My new pimpy sunglasses from Target. They are metal and glass, not plastic! I broke them today and are currently in repair with some Gorilla Glue.

A pattern I don't really care for. I  like the ruler bit, not so much my execution.

Two old, black, vintage bracelets that I own. I used to be covered with jewelry. In my ears, face, on my hands and around my neck. Kind of like Mr. T. Not so much these days.

My lovely makeup brushes. Paint yo face!

Ryan likes lots of sweet things like cake, ice cream  with whipped cream on top. I think I had a shot of this with coffee that morning.

My lovely, sparkly, glittery eyeshadow 4 pack. I apply it with my lovely makeup brushes, not that little, wussy applicator.

daily dOOdle weekly round-up.

Gooey, chocolate cake. Ryan bought some cake for his grandma's funeral gathering in Idaho. No one ate it, so we brought it back home and I had cake for breakfast.

Multi pack of glue sticks. I thought it was a super deal, but these glue sticks totally suck.  All dried up and don't glue anything together.

I'm a new contact wearer. Sort of. I think they are such a pain in the ass and I want to tear my eyeballs out. So, I don't wear them very much.

Ryan's PBR hat.

A gold goat. Someone corrected me once and told me this is not a goat but I can't recall the actual name.  Anyways, I found it at a thrift shop. It's gold, heavy and goat like.

My brother, Steven, and I got belts together at this leather daddy shop in S.F. He used to live in the castro and it was so much fun going to visit him. I got the super punk rock belt and now it doesn't fit me anymore.

Jewels for Mardi Gras. You can't go anywhere on our ski hill without someone trying to throw beads around your  neck. What the heck, I'll join the party. Fun and confusing to draw.

paper world.

I made this drawing for an entry to a children's coloring book. Unfortunately, it did not make the cut so I made a copy of it and cut it up.
The aftermath.

I cut a mini city out of the grey paper. I love this paper but it comes in a roll and it's nearly impossible to press flat. I tried but it failed so, oh well.

Behind the scenes.

It's hard to choose a final shot, but I think these are pretty cool.

"daily dOOdle" weekly round-up.

 I saw a post on Tim's post about a designer. This guy makes modern band flyers  based around swedish design. I really liked some of the hardcore ones. My lame attempt at swede design.

My favorite little wine glass. It's the last survivor. I have broken every last one of my glasses. Even my grandmother's crystal. This one was tiny and had the silvery frost on the rim and smoky fade. I found it at a thrift shop in Idaho. Boo.

Krusty typography. I love letter writing, but my hands are a bit spazzy, so I gotta do it Krusty style. This was a design for my banner in my Etsy shop.

Ryan's moms' hairpins. We went to Idaho for his grandma's funeral (rip Marilyn, you cute lady) and I was snooping through the cabinets for some hand lotion. These pins reminded me of my mom's and her big ol' spiky rollers.

A weird, rubbery rabbit toy, I found at the Piehl's. They have a cardboard box of toys for the grandkids, I think.

Some sort of beaded doll I found at Whitney's. She's got lots of funky stuff to draw in her trailer by the tracks.

Valentine's' day. Not a huge proponent but I thought this little piggy bank was sort of suiting, I guess because of the heart shaped eyes and...

...heart shaped butthole.
