Bike Carnival

Last summer,  I did a couple of bike related watercolors to decorate the awards at a benefit carnival for Spokeland that took place in my back yard.  Spokeland is an awesome Oakland, CA based bike co-op.

The first one was for a balance event.  Each competitor had to successfully ride a tiny child's bike on a narrow plank of wood,  it sounds easy but was not.
The next event was a frame lifting event,  I think you had to hold up a bike frame in each hand for as long as you could.

 
The last event was a tire changing competition,  I'm pretty slow at this so it was awesome watching some pros going super fast.

Georgie the Green Monster

I made a cute green monster this week.  It's part of a concept that I'm continuing to work on. Georgie is a helpful monster with hidden wings that unfold when he raises his arms.

Tweedy kitty


I'm working on several projects that are all in various states of completion,  so I haven't had much to share lately.  Here's a tweed kitty plush that I made today.  It's fun experimenting with different fabrics,  like wool tweed,  to make stuffed animals.  I've got the pattern finished,  so all I have to do is work on the instructions then I can make it available to everyone.
