double r's cherry pie agent cooper

for today's fugitive, leff (the bf) and i went to north bend's twede's diner, a.k.a. the double r diner from twin peaks.

while there, i made an agent dale cooper out of their cherry pie on a napkin.

sorry that the picture isn't so great. the lighting was kinda' low in the diner. anyway, here's cooper with the pie and some damn fine coffee.

and so ends the week of peaks!

oh, an update. here's a picture that leff took of me, uh, you know, taking a picture of agent cooper.

james furley

james marshall as james hurley made from cat fur.

please know that no animals were harmed when making this piece. i obtained my fur by brushing all of our cats. (yeah, we have four. we're a blended family a la the brady bunch. (two cats are mine, two are leff's.))

catalog ladies

margaret lanterman as the log lady cut from a cb2 catalog. (negative and positive)

bobby figgs

dana ashbrook as bobby briggs made from the insides of six fig newtons.

one summer, long ago (in a galaxy far, far away? no. but at least half of a continent away from where i am now.) i dated a guy who looked eerily similar to bobby briggs. right down to the asshole-ish hair cut.

just what is it about that hair style that brings out the worst in guys? (heh heh)

sheriff peary s. truman

michael ontkean as harry s. truman scratched into a pear.

laura palmer

not dead nor wrapped in plastic, it's sheryl lee as laura palmer in gel ink on my hand/palm.

i'll be playing catch up on the fugitives today now that i'm not in pain or a narcotic fog. thanks for your patience!

back soon

i tried to work through it but i need to fess up...i'm in need of a root canal and, as such, am not really in the state of mind to make fugitives at the moment.

but i promise that i'll be back soon, catching up and making a new item a day. (i see the dentist tomorrow for an assessment and, hopefully, pain meds if he can't do the root canal asap.)

sherilyn fenn as audrey horne from "twin peaks" made from corn meal.

plastick bag

the tick in sharpie on a plastic produce bag.

here's the plastick bag trying to have an "american beauty" moment but failing. (there wasn't much in the way of an air current. plus, i was laughing too hard.)

i thought since this is a fairly stable piece that i'd have a small contest. if you'd like a chance to own the plastick bag (i got yams in it before i drew on it. whee!), please shoot me an email at rakkadeer [at] gmail [dot] com with the subject line "plastick bag" by monday, may 19th, 2008 @ 5 p.m. pst. (find your time zone)

please know that i won't be compiling or selling your email addresses. i'm only one person in an apartment in seattle with no evil intent. i hate spam as much as you do.

what i will do is randomly pick a name and send the tick on to the winner! (i'll notify the winner on monday, may 19th by 6:30 pm pst (at the latest) via email.)

best of luck!

bubble rap and peptony hawk

tupac and biggie in bubble wrap. it's east coast and west coast at the same time!

tony hawk made from pepto bismol. i should add that tony hawk doesn't make me sick to my stomach. i actually enjoy watching him skate and his video games are pretty awesome.

it's another one of those days...

...where everything that i touch falls apart or doesn't work.

for example, here's a failed mayo yo ma stencil. you can see the mayo seeping through the paper.

i tried six different varients on the mayo yo ma theme today but i'm going to have to admit defeat. i promise i'll be back tomorrow with two new fugitives.

(is it interesting to see the failures along the way? just wondering.)

sugar ray

ray charles made from powdered sugar.

it's true, this could've easily been sugar ray leonard or sugar ray robinson but i think that ray charles is sweeter.

paper towl

changing direction from the portraits, here's a cartoony paper towl, an owl made from prismacolor on a paper towel which was then adhered to a paper towel backing and stuffed with, you guessed it, paper towels.

basically, it's a compostable plush.

edgar allen poe-tato flakes

edgar allen poe made from instant mashed potato flakes.

just to clarify, i don't eat instant mashed potato flakes. these are left over from the time i made a meat igloo for swapatorium.

although, leff, my bf, will occasionally make a batch for himself. sometimes i just don't understand him...

nine inch nail polish

trent reznor made from pretty (hate machine?) pink nail polish.

here's an alternate shot so you can see the shiny sparkly-ness of the polish.

holy mole and ham solo

virgin mary (sacred heart variety) made of mole sauce. (thanks to leff for the heavenly suggestion!)

sorry for the late post announcing a delay but i'm trying to take the project in a new direction and things aren't exactly working the way that they should today.

that being said, i'll be back on tuesday with two new fugitives! see you tomorrow!
