Engagement Via Longoland Monster.

I was recently asked to build a finger puppet for a friend's girlfriend.  Lets call him Austin and her Angie. She happens to be one of my closest friends. I have known her since 2003 when I started working at Macy's as a "creative consultant/in house amusement advisor".  I had forgotten I built the puppet because he asked back in May, but last week that same finger puppet was used to as a vessel to carry a serious engagement ring!!!!! So to put it simple he hid the ring the in butthole of the finger puppet!!!!!!!! Surprise!!!!!!!!!! It is an honor to be a part of something so special. I wish them the best of luck in their future adventures.

Longoland Update.

I have been busy with this stool commission that just keeps on going. I love its going to be awesome.... I have way surpassed the hours/$ ratio, but it will be amazing. I also got the test samples for the die cut scales. There will be a complete grey monster skin rug by months end. Now that I have finally got the scales made, there will probably be more use of scales in  the near future. As for "normal" life which I usually dont discuss, I have been doing some design work for BHLDN (part of the URban Outfitters family)... Its there wedding line.... Chandeliers, tiered cake plates, and other amazing items. I have also been creating tshirt graphics and prints for Free People. I will post when they are made. I havent forgotten about you ALEkz. My wheels are turning full speed. Your little guy will be there soon.
