Jesus Quintana Assembly

Posted in Art, dolls, film, handmade with tags , , , on January 9, 2011 by darcyarts

I am knee-deep in the pleasure of stitching Jesus Quintana. Jorge Negrete is watching over the proceedings.

It’s coming along.

The face will be thinner when it is joined with the back of the head.

The hair, curly and black, will look great under the black fish net/hair net I’ve got ready to go.

My face needs a couple more layers of black embroidery stitches. It’s a delicate operation and takes mucho tiempo, esse. I’m dedicated to the task, la lucha, por las munecas.

I revisited the splendor of The Big Lebowski and snapped some shots off the big screen to use as examples for the work.

I may be crazy but I want to try to recreate the wrist brace, too. I may run out of time. I’ve got Stevie Wonder and Prince bodies waiting in the wings to receive their heads.

I hadn’t seen the Coen bros film in a long time. It is a gas.

This from the Big Lebowski entry at Wikipedia:

Dudeism, an online religion devoted largely to spreading the philosophy and lifestyle of the movie’s main character was founded in 2005. Also known as The Church of the Latter-Day Dude, the organization has ordained over 50,000 “Dudeist Priests” all over the world via its website.”

Cold and Carbo

Posted in Art, film, food, projects with tags , , , , on February 22, 2010 by darcyarts

The cold weather is back for a few days and so I’ve made a quick carbo breakfast to counteract the chill.

One big brown egg and two french toast waffles. Keeks A$$. French toast waffles from the frozen breakfast aisle of Walmart are very popular around here. My granny just loves them with a little butter.

Getting granny to eat regularly is my job and these little eggos are my secret weapon.

We are having a fruit smoothie with all kinds of good stuff including a dose of D-ribose. Not the best thing sensually on a very cold morning but essential for health.

I am having a cup of coffee, too. A rare treat these days.

The day started with a 10 mile fake bike ride and then a cup of Morning Thunder tea. It’s my favorite.

I’ll wrap two books I sold on Amazon and take them to the post office and then it’s back to Frida’s clothes and stitching mini dragons. What a great life.

It’s been a good  year  so far and it’s only getting better.

Frank and I have seen more film this Academy Awards season than ever before. We’ve been enjoying Prime 11 Cinema in Anderson.

We saw A Serious Man via Netflix and it was really interesting. Bravo Michael Stuhlbarg. I marveled, I laughed, I wanted to slap somebody. Coen Bros out do themselves.

The big show is March 7. I love watching the Academy Awards. I do have one regret a head of time. Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic, the producers of this year’s show, revealed on Fresh Air last week that they had originally wanted Sasha Baron Cohen to host. That their idea was rejected by the powers that be is our great loss.
