Some process shots of my ‘HERSELF’ embroidery piece for the Animation Art Show 2016. I used embroidery thread on felt with an assortment of vintage beads. It’s 11x11 inches. Currently exhibited in The Ark, Temple Bar, Dublin. Sometimes I like the back of it more than the front.

Okay, do you remember the morning of your parents funeral? [What??] Just stay with me. We walked up to the chapel and you said “I can’t do it. I can’t say goodbye to them.” And I said, “Maggie.

She’s here, she’s here right now. Yeah and she’s wearing that weird housecoat from high school that we tried to throw out so many times. So you know what I want you to do? I want you to grab my hand and I want you to grab her hand, and I want you to push that baby right out of you. Okay? [Okay.] I love you, let’s do this. Let’s have a baby.
11.13.14 Mantzoukas and…. at UCB Franklin. Haven’t been to one of these in forever, but I’m so glad we made it to this one! Jason Mantzoukas had his long time friends Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair join him for an hour-long monoscene that had it all - unrequited love, eagles, catfights, loaded descriptions of vomit, and a fused labia. There was even a Q&A at the end.
