check me out, i'm georgia o'keefe.

a little while ago, as every stay at home mom eventually does, i went through an all consuming rubber chicken phase. I drew and painted rubber chickens relentlessly for days. Make dinner,draw a rubber chicken, have a shower, paint a rubber chicken, mow the lawn, draw a rubber chicken, sometimes, paint a rubber chicken, paint another rubber chicken.sometimes i would spend an hour on a rubber chicken, others i would fire out in a couple minutes. I know it’s something we all have to experience but, I feel I went through it a little stronger than most(oooh, I just got a new rubber chicken idea while i was writing this!) anyway, somewhere in my rubber chicken fervour i inadvertently ended up painting this little gem,

i kind of look at it in the vein of the thousand monkeys theory,if you sit and paint/draw infinite rubber chickens, eventually one is going to look like a vagina.
alternatively, perhaps i'm a lesbian
and i didn't even know it.

....OR! maybe i was supposed to be a clown!

who's the shit?

loopyboopy's the shit!

and i will personally take on anyone who would say otherwise. oh ya, that's right, i'll go ya!
colleen's sculptures were the first that i found instantly recognizable on ,
if you look at it and think,
"well lookie here, i don't know if i want to knock it's head off before it attacks me, or give it a bowl of soup and a toasty, warm blanket fresh out of the dryer."
then it's a loopyboopy.

I will most definitely feature loopyboopy again when my blog becomes wildly popular and gets a million hits a day because,

1) it’s my blog and I can do that if I want

B) colleen is constantly tweaking the nuances of her characters so there are always new things to see. It’s like a new shop all the time, yet always distinctly colleen.

five fluffy questions for loopyboopy

1-food guilty pleasure
(you know, the one you would rather not admit to):
A big ol plate of greasy salami and crackers that I make for myself in the evening after everyone has gone to bed. It just tastes best when I'm alone.

2-drink of choice
(don't tell me water): Well, since I can't say water..yeah right:) This really depends on the time of day. Of course that big cup of steamy coffee in the morning would be high on the list. In the evening, depending on the type of day I've had either a Corona beer or a stiff Crown Royal and Coke.

3-favorite "all in the family" character
(Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.): Yikes, this one will date ya hah? Since I was just a wee one when this show was on I remember liking Sally struthers big bouncy hair and tits, hoping I would one day grow up to be so big and beautiful.

**in my defense, all in the family was on in the background when i was writing these questions. i am actually very young, sparkly eyed and bouncy, a young sally struthers one might say.

4-favorite website
(not etsy): oohh I have many, but this is my current favorite.

5-favorite concert ever
(stadium, community hall, pub, garage, doesn't matter): This is easy. Black Flag, at this underground club in Detroit called the Hungry Brain. I remember Henry Rollins climbed
on top of the stack of speakers that was all tall as the building itself and jumped into the crowd..what a man!!

thanks colleen :)

super famey party girls

before i discovered etsy i was really wanting to develop a comic strip. my plan was to work harder than i had ever worked before on a project of my own. ultimately, when i had enough material i would stick it in a drawer and move on to something else that would make me laugh and never make me any money.
my first instinct was to do one about my my mother-in-law, who was living with us at the time. i had it all sketched out with her in her giant kitty cat sweat shirt and little stick legs and me in my super styley evening gown and jessica rabbit figure. then my husband told me i wasn't allowed to draw pictures of his mom, so i had to find a different subject.
at the time i was finding much hilarity in the whole' famous for nothing, party girl scene' . girls who were famous for being rich and flashing their naughty bits while climbing out of limos. apparently great wealth can be achieved by not spending money on underwear. what came of this was the beginning of 'super famey party girls'.

until i figure out what i'm doing here i will probably just fill space with random things like this. stay tuned, because in the next couple of days i will be posting about the 'accidental vagina/rubber chicken'.
