"I use my blue Rith bowls almost everyday (since 1985). Best trade ever." --Monica

I told Kasey my New Year's resolution was "more punk in 2011!". What does that mean? Keith Richards has a skull ring. The Offspring's first album: a flaming skull. That is pretty punky to my mind. Also heavy metal (think Iron Maiden!)and goth---goths are all black, skully, halloweeny.
But why does anybody like skulls? Just so you can seem badass?
I was with a friend at a store the other day looking at this huge skull bracelet. It is pretty awesome, but Jacci was all shivers and like "what is the appeal???".
I have to admit that as an artist sometimes you don't think a lot, you are just making designs that appear appealing--if it looks good, you're doing it. You're having fun and it looks good. Half my work lately is the usual bright and cute, the other half? As Johnny Cash said of his closet: 'its dark in there'.
There is a large blog spot called Skull a day featuring skulls in art and nature or even beer foam etc that I am submitting work to. Like this wicked excellent teapot, also for sale at my etsy gallery.....
