All in Create

Thundersuit Assault MOC, 02.18

...Back in January we went to check out Bricks LA, a Southern California Lego fan's utopia. I totally got bit by the MOC bug. In LegoLanguage a MOC is "My Own Creation" and something built from imagination and exploration. The Bricks LA event was fun for all ages and as an...

Beaded Hatband, 08.16

I always find inspiration when I get out of town and have the time to see things and explore, and the Southwest is one of my favorite places to find this inspiration. On my recent vacation, I loved looking at the Native American vendor’s beadwork but my brain would always say “Lets do that.”, so rather than buying a piece I ended up buying the stuff to make it...

...I hadn’t made anything with my hands in a while, and was definitely looking forward to spending a day working on this. I spent an hour or so at Kean (a local favorite coffee shop) worked on some sketches and then came home ready to create...

Goldwell Residency, 10.09

I applied in mid 2009 and was granted a two week stay (they prefer a four week residency but that wasn’t possible for me). I loaded up my ride (then a Subaru Outback XT) and headed out through Death Valley to Rhyolite. As part of the residency...
