Several of my voodoo dolls and eye teeth wall relief were purchased for a scene in the movie “Now You See Me” that is coming out at the end of May. I don’t know yet if the scenes that my dolls are in were cut or not but I am crossing my fingers, knocking on wood, that they made it in!
Here is the trailer, if you happen to see the movie, keep an eye on any scenes that happen in a voodoo shop in New orleans!

We have a lot of cows in Vermont!
My awesome intern found this while wandering around in the woods and lugged it back.

Reminder: Doll raffle is this Wednesday!
I want to know what YOU think! I hope you will take a few minutes to tell me your thoughts about Strange Dolls and a bit about your personal interests.
To show my appreciation, I am going to raffle off one of my voodoo dolls by randomly drawing a name from the pool of folks who responded to the survey. If you would like your name to go in the hat, please make sure to include your name and email address. The drawing will be held May 15th.
Take the survey!

Last Saturday the Girl Scouts were traveling around the South End, visiting artists’ studios and gallery spaces. Last year they did this as well and that was the first time I encountered the throng. So I knew what I was in for this year. They are like a swarming mass of bees that descend upon the place. I think I was more afraid of them than they were of me. I was afraid of being swept up in the hum.
One of the girls showed me the photos she took on her phone last year and another one of the girls was so into what was going on in my studio that she and her mom came back a few days later to visit. However, there was one cute little asian girl (in the photo below) that was terribly non-plussed about the whole thing. And at the end one little girl straggled in by herself and her mom came running in behind to pick her up and say “Oh no, she is not spending time in this room. It took us forever to help this one recover from the movie Coraline.”
Anyway, it was a neat experience and I hope that there were a few evil creative seeds planted that day.

My day of the dead dolls nabbed the front and back covers of the winter 2013 literary journal, Puerto del Sol.
“Puerto del Sol, now in its 47th year of publication, is the journal of the English Department at New Mexico State University dedicated to providing a forum for innovative poetry, prose, drama, criticism and artwork from emerging and established writers and artists.”

(I think this is as close to academia I have ever gotten )
