I found lots of these old sunbleached empty shells in my garden and thought some poisonous looking green snails would be fun to make.

bits of my room

A little place, with pretty twigs, toadstools, a bird called Antoine, my cat William's ashes and a photo of him (silver frame) iridescent boob tassel pastie things, a unicorn and the simoneer guys (who are staying here on holiday while I paint their 'set') art by Liselotte Eriksson (in the gold frame) a giraffe candle thing (from my brother) the candle goes in his belly and then he makes pretty patterns on the wall, some acorns, a mask from Leroy, a hideous and great silver swan, a harry potter wand (ahaha) and my collection of cigarette tins with Egyptian dudes on.

Below is Smaug who I have had forever and ever, well at least 19 years.


I made some wings.

Some Simoneers

Some of the little creatures I made from Robert Frost's comic he made of the Simoneers, above is Robert riding a hedgehog which he does all day long) and Naomi von Monsta in an apple.

Here is me with my cat Amun and Naomi von Monsta again with a little monster.

Here I eat Monsta, and there she is with her original drawing by Robert.

Burlesque fan staves

Hello, welcome to here. This is a photo of Amun checking out my naked bamboo staves. (wahey!) I'm going to make vegan feathers because ... well here is a quote from Why I don't use ostrich feathers by Tina Warren.

"The feathers are plucked from an ostrich every 7-10 months. Birds have a hood put over their heads, are immobilised in a wooden V-shaped crush while feathers are cut off. That, believe it or not, is the kindest way to harvest their feathers. The other method used on ostrich farms, to ensure quality leather skins, is to remove the ostrich feathers by hand, pulling the feathers one-by-one out of their sockets with pliers while the bird is alive." Tina Warren.

That is some uncool shit right there man. Am I right?
