FRANK AND PATTY


They held hands with the sturdy obligatory grip of children on a field trip. Function and safety minus spark and flame. Click for the rest! MORE

YELLOW SAYS


YELLOW SAYS: I’m happy. I’m optimistic. I’m a smiley face. I’m SpongeBob. But respect your need for me, and your proper dose. For I exist between stop and go, where… MORE

THE QUIET FOUR


Their final stand inside the meek. No longer pawns designed to cook prawns. They’re moments before burning their bustiers in the corner, and… MORE

CRIB DASH


Still from The Dad Box. Making reference to my sister Julianne, who lived only 9 days… I just spent time with my parents, and as moving their bedroom downstairs has proven necessary, part of that job included temporarily packing up a little shrine to Julianne that my Mom had made on their bookshelf… I saw MORE

PET, PLEASE


What animal would you like to live in close quarters with if domestication weren’t an issue? I’ll throw you a short phrase about that animal’s significance!

DANCE ANYWAY


Let’s take fanciful flight smack inside
The judgment flying around
And go poolside with our power

Let’s smile into streamers of self-assurance
And grow a culture that responds
In trust falls and confetti
In celebratory dives and high fives

Let’s create MORE

THE ROTARY FACTOR


“As time passes, the actual complexity of our history – even of our own personal experience – gets buried under the weight of the ideal image.” -Stephanie Coontz

There’s a toddler shot of me, a photograph with those classic rounded corners and Kodak color tonality, in which I’m holding the receiver of our yellow rotary phone to my head, its confused curly cord hanging in a heap of monster to my side.

Isn’t it something how the very act of memorializing that moment now gives MORE

DRINKABLE ART


Throwback to when my “Dad Apples” print from “The Dad Box” was selected as one of the inaugural labels for the launch of Toronto’s brewery, Collective Arts! It’s a cool company, dedicated to promoting artists and raising creative consciousness through “the sociability of craft beer”, so if you’re an artist interested in MORE

RAPUNZEL INTERIOR


Throwback to my “Butterfly & The Beast” box, commissioned by the creators of an independent film. The box appeared central frame on a wall in one scene, being itself a microcosm and interpretation of the film’s protagonist, who was sitting nearby.

CRYPT AURILLA


In loving memory, on her birthday, of a force called Aurilla.

I learned that Aurilla had died of cancer upon receiving a call from her neighbor. He’d seen a postcard I’d just mailed her, saying I was heading out to CA and that I wanted to come see her…

He said she was MORE

THE OTHER ARIEL


My sister Lynne met Sam on an olive grove in Greece, and they have a love story better than all rom coms… because it actually happened! They are now marrying under the Vermont skies. So to quote Lynne’s childhood relationship guru, Ariel from The Little Mermaid:

“Where MORE

DANCE AT HOME


Even if it’s just a few goofy shakes, dancing at home is the indication of something good. 🤓 Still from my Jason & Elizabeth Box, which was a wedding gift commission.

SHERRY BERRY


I’ve been called Sherry Berry by a select few loved ones since my beginning. My first pair of glasses, when I was 4, even had tiny strawberries on the frame’s temples. I started ornamenting from a young age. It never made sense to me why we wouldn’t.

Featured here is the side of my “Bear Face” Box. It tackles some aspects of my childhood. There aren’t exactly words for why this MORE

RETROGRADING


My heart went heavy down a well today, and then my mind dove in after it. I didn’t know wells had creatures like these, so I’m praying this is a Jonah and The Whale sort of situation! Still from my “Salty Man” box. #mercuryretrograde
