Scooter Piece

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share with you all the piece that I took to the Scooter show at the Tampa Museum of Art

It sold! In the first hour! It was tons of fun and not just because of the free gelato, coffee, and beer.

Hi everyone. I've sertainly been busy! Last friday I got laid off so now I can be even busier. I've had tons of really fun custom pieces recently and wanted to share some of them with you all:

Vinyl car decal!

So now if you see a mazda 626 driving around somewhere between Florida and Maine with my website on the window, you know who it is:) Thanks again to fleanine at etsy ( for the custom vinyl decal. If you need anything for your car GO TO HER. She was the best and gave me tons of scraps to play with too!

Ready for my closeup!

I just took a whole bunch of close up photos of the papercuttings so that people would be able to get a better sense of them when browsing online. It shows the texture a little better and also gives you a better idea of how much detail is in each tiny aspect of the pieces. Palais des Congres is featured above and the Arts and Crafts Wycinanki is featured below. All the pictures I added are together here on flickr, or you can check out some of the individual pages here on etsy. Let us know what you think!

Custom Custom Custom!

It's been awhile since we've updated, but the since we've been gone the name of the game has been CUSTOM. Joe's been working like mad to fill requests for custom papercuttings- making them look just right for whatever occasion is needed. We've been out of town for work, but Joe brings a travel pack of papercutting supplies and works nights in our hotel room. Dedicated!

To help bolster this new focus on custom work, we've hired a professional web designer (in Brazil!) to create a fun and funky webpage especially targeted at custom work. Please check out the new webpage and let us know what you think!

A new product/service Joe is adding is a custom sillhouette portrait for only $15 (!!) and a custom pet portrait for only $20 (!!). These inexpensive pieces will look like a million bucks when framed on your wall. Of course they are great gifts, but they are also truly thoughtful heirloom pieces. Joe just needs a picture to work with and you'll have your very own custom piece in the mail.

Examples on the left include a portrait of me (Jen), a self portrait of the artist (Joe), and a custom portrait of the new Bagley dog (McGreggor).

Let us know if you have any great ideas for custom pieces that you'd love to see Joe make!
