Just another birdie

Every year another lil wayward soul crosses our paths, usually on walks in our neighborhood.

This time it’s a baby Spice Finch, aka Scaly-Breasted Munia, aka Nutmeg Finch. We only know this because all the wildlife rescuse places we’ve contacted have identified her and said they wouldn’t help. She(he?) was too young to leave her nest- but somehow survived the fall onto concrete from 20’ above!

This is what we’ve learned over the past 5 days:

  • She’s about a week away from being a fledgling, so she was much to young to be out of her nest
  • She needs to eat every 2 hours from morning til night
  • “Exact” bird formula is easy to use and she loves it
  • We need to get her socialized and with her kind if possible soon and then ideally she can be released to be her own little wild self
  • She’s crazy and ridiculously cute

Noche de Calvera II @ Regime Contemporary

Had a blast painting “Anicca” which is available for purchase at the Regime Contemporary Gallery in the Mayfair Hotel in DTLA.  Graffiti Art fans should check out the space- RISK has done a great job of curating interesting and fun fine art pieces with neon and mixed media.


 CHECK OUT the latest Elder poster and t-shirt design that I’ve been fortunate to jam on for the lovely Ms. Rynne Stump. LIMITED RUN of posters will be available at the show this SUN AUG 12 @ Mississippi Studios.

I just LOOOOOOOOOVE drawing and painting your animals, and I really get into the details of each little speck of color, or the way the light hits your fur baby's eyes. To get a great painting and composition requires some photography on your part, and I can give you advice on lighting, angles, etc to complete the right look you desire. 

Because I tailor-make each piece to your needs, please convo through my contact page here and send photos for estimated sizing, pricing, and turnaround, and I will send you more details. 


Loteria Show! @ Cactus Gallery March 12th 6-9 pm

Here’s my Loteria #26 EL NEGRITO for Cactus Gallery’s 11th Anniversary show this weekend! This 8” x 10” acrylic on canvas is a portrait of Toussaint Louverture “The Black Napoleon” and can be purchased through the Gallery at this link:


Tidbit: François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture was the best-known leader of the Haitian Revolution. His achievements set the grounds for the Black army’s absolute victory and for a declaration of the sovereign state of Haiti in January 1804. Toussaint’s prominent role in the Haitian success over colonialism and slavery had earned him the admiration of friends and detractors alike.


Saturday, Dec 12th was my first time as a vendor at this highly anticipated sale of all things dark and lovely and handmade- just in time to get all those holiday gifts for everyone, (or for yourself if you are bad at planning like me!) If you happened to have missed out- I won’t rub it in too much that it was pretty much the best shopping event of the year, and combined with a friends-from-all-corners reunion made for a helluva party atmosphere. I was lucky to have Tina B from Littlecat Pottery as my super adorable booth partner. I just love her ceramic wares and I have some myself and they have also made great gifts- (ok I guess I’m not ALWAYS that bad at gifting!) Some more good luck that day was that I was actually able to make it to the event even though I was recovering from surgery, so A HUGE THANK YOU to the friends who came to my rescue and hauled all my stuff for me. I’m so glad I didn’t miss out on all the fun and I can’t wait till next year’s event.

Bitchcraft is thoughtfully curated and run by an amazingly talented and supportive team of ladies- Rachel Hsuing-Crystal Habitats, Erica Clum - Goldmine + Earthling Jewelry,  Alex Comacho- Acid Queen Jewelry, photographer Tanya Barr photographer, and Kristina Boudreau- web developer/designer.
