#tbt One of my favorite digital pieces from back when digital was my medium. I remember the day I photographed cows this one was throwing a fit and all the others kept ditching it. She had quite the attitude problem. I’m still willing to offer signed prints of past work so let me know if interested.
The newest addition to my library, “Crap Taxidermy” by Kat Su, author of Crappy Taxidermy on Tumblr. The photos in this book range from cute to terrifying but offer laughs and inspiration nonetheless.
Watching Beetlejuice as I sketch project designs in my appropriately themed sketchbook.
Taxidermist problem: I like starting my day with a nice shower to help me wake up but I’m just going to get covered in animal guts and chemicals and then have to shower again.

"A kapala (Sanskrit for "skull") or skullcup is a cup made from a human skull used as a ritual implement (bowl) in both Hindu Tantra and Buddhist Tantra (Vajrayana). Especially in Tibet, they were often carved or elaborately mounted with precious metals and jewels."
I had the privilege to hold onto this beautiful piece and do some minor repairs on it before sending it back to its home with the Circus Emporium Roadshow where it’s part of their traveling collection of oddities.
#tbt “Cabaret Caviar” from back when my medium of choice was digital photo montages.
Watching this little beauty spin her web.
The leaves are just starting to turn and our local pumpkin spiders have been practicing their weaving, which means my ethically harvested and preserved webs will be available again soon! There are currently a few available at Many Hands Gallery in Eureka, if interested please give them a visit or call them at (707) 445-0455
