2024?!

Ahahaha let’s not look at the calendar. Shhhh, step away. Anyway. Recently I’ve embarked on a studio reorganization quest – it’s one of those things that has to get a lot messier before it gets better – so I’ve been sticking to...
Art Prompts: September

Art Prompts: September

One of the many wonderful things about having our own space now is that we’re able to try projects that weren’t possible while in a basement suite. Eric has expanded his tinkering from lighting to woodworking and is really enjoying it. One of his recent...
