My Which Greek God are You? wrist cuffs are back in my Etsy store! My mom foolishly let me borrow her sewing machine. Which has been a pretty crazy adventure (sewing), considering how many times I was convinced that I was going to remain stuck to the machine for life. FOR LIFE! Leggo me, crazy bobbin. But it’s cool, we’re friends now, and as long as I speak in quiet, melodic tones, the sewing machine respects the boundaries of my personal space.

I’m chugging along with my next print project, so here’s a peek at the next couple of Spirit Guides I’ve finished and have in the queue …. What’s a spirit guide, you ask? Wellll, it’s just my latest idea for a quirky way to celebrate some of my favorite characters, and package them in a portable medium that could be displayed anywhere! That way, people wouldn’t have to deal with the age-old question floating around prints – to frame or not to frame? With these cute little hanging prints, they can dangle wherever suits your fancy!

Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson is my Spirit Guide is finally up in my Etsy Shop!

Next up is Roger Sterling, who’s progressed from this:

Pencils

Inks

… to this! He’s almost done and ready to go on the market.

I’m still not sure if I’m going to go ahead with the Sawyer and Anna Lucia and Herman Blume prints I talked about here. I love them as characters, but I’m not sure my drawings do them justice. I’m going to hold off on finishing them until I tackle some of these other characters that I’ve been dying to draw.

My first two Spirit Guides are done!

Since I want them to be portable and hangable, I glued the prints to thin sheets of wood, attached a piece of jute cord to the back ….

… and then I added just a few key qualities of the spirit guide to the back.

I’ll post some photos of Ron once I’ve assembled him too, but for now Margot’s up in my Etsy Store!

My latest idea for a fun project to work on, which capitalizes on my fondness for characters, is to create little mini Spirit Guides. I’m taking a bunch of my all-time favorite characters from movies and TV shows and re-imagining them as inhabiting certain qualities I wish I had, or just wish I had on a particular day. For example ….

Here’s Margot Tenenbaum.

Margot

She’s someone I view not only as the mopey playwright created by Wes Anderson (whose style I drool over), but as someone who possesses certain qualities I wish I had. Sure, she’s sneaky, purposefully vague, and not the most loyal. But she’s also romantic, resourceful, and unabashedly enigmatic. She’s found a way to control her misery in a way that remains appealing, as easily as she carves out spaces in her bathroom and a museum to be her private sanctuaries.

Each Spirit Guide I create will be colored, printed, and assembled similar to my Giles Print:

 

They’ll be hangable, so they can be displayed wherever you need them. At work, at home, in the kitchen, in your gym locker, wherevs. I’ll post the finished ones as I do them, but in the meantime here are some more characters I can’t help but love ….

 

Herman Blume from Rushmore

Sawyer from LOST

Anna Lucia, another LOST fave
