Mug design

I worked on my design a little and wound up with this image:

Tejas likes this image more than my previous image:

But honestly, given that I want to etch this design on a stainless steel cup with a carabiner for a handle, doesn’t it make sense to have a simpler design?

One that allows the logo to be LARGER and more VISIBLE?

I’m not even sure that the caterpillars will show up properly, they’re so small and delicate.

So I’m still playing around with designs, but right now, this is the winner:

Not too shabby, eh?

I’m not sure I like it with more bells and whistles thrown in.


Attempting graphic design

I worked on a little logo for the 2019 Burning Man:  Metamorphosis.

I took the man logo and gave him butterfly wings.

Because what says transformation more than butterflies?

Frogs, perhaps?

Now THERE’S a transformation – from water-dwelling polywog to air breathing amphibian!

But for me, I chose butterflies instead of frogs because, let’s face it, butterflies are lovely, ethereal and, most importantly, easy to draw.

I created this design:

I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to use it.

Engraved dog tag?

Custom pendant?

Custom cup?


I’m not really sure what I want to do with it or even IF I’m going to do something with it, but for now, at least I have a design.


P.S. Tejas doesn’t like my design.  He says it’s not very “unique.”


At least it’s appropriate.


I’m working on an outfit for the Metamorphosis theme of Burning Man this year.

I fell in LOVE with this gorgeous light blue butterfly kimono:

Does anything represent metamorphosis more than a butterfly?

I think not.

So I bought the kimono and to go with it I have a beautiful ombre wig:

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure how many showers I’ll get to take at Burning Man so I’m bringing wigs to cover up my ratty playafied hair.

Since I’m not planning on going naked UNDER the kimono, I’ve got a pair of white jeans shorts and a white crochet cami to go with it:

And (just to make things interesting) I have a pair of BABY BLUE antennae to wear with the outfit.

Just to show that I have indeed metamorphosized into a beautiful butterfly-woman.

I was tempted to buy little butterflies to put in my hair but MOOP.

And we can’t have MOOP!

So let’s see how long my white shorts stay white now, shall we?
