AWOL not!

Hey all,
I've been a bit awol lately. Between my dental work and the Monsoon Season starting I've been dragging behind. It's not hard when the outside looks like this, it goes on for hours and days!!! I'm not complaining mind you we could really use the rain. We've have an ongoing severe drought,
hopefully we'll have a wet season hopefully sans Huricanes! they're such a bore.

Anyway I've been having studio envy with some of you since as most of you know I work out of my 1 bedroom condo. The dining room has been officially requisitioned but even that is becoming tight. I finnally had to move all the furniture except the dining table into the living room, essentially turning into a studio. I tried to make every inch of space count with shelves and additional tables, but I keep producing. It's a good thing. Here are some pictures of the chaos in action.

As you can see I went with the general consensus on the Masks and will be selling them mostly as wall art. But they are really great on! I'll probably be listing the first batch on eBay this weekend. By the way I noticed a lot of you use Etsy,  is that a better option or another venue?In the corner my cabinet of curiosities. Actually its part of my vintage Halloween collection that got relocated during the studio maneuvers, a bit tight don't you think. Anyway I off to work again I've got an awful lot of catching up to do.

Hey Jorge - your studio space looks great. And remember, it's not the's what you do with it! ;)

I use ETSY over Ebay because ETSY is specifically geared towards artists. And I like the way that you can set up a shop with categories. So far, I've had decent success with it.

Have a great weekend.
