Los Angeles based Mel Kadel has been a Fecal Pal for years. She lives in a funky radical cabin (photos) in the woods near downtown LA with the talented Travis Millard. Her work should be viewed in person to grasp the amount of incredible line work that goes into each piece. A talented stable inner core sourounded by humble generous kind person exterior. That's Mel.
I was probably signing up for my first hotmail account, on my computer at work. Back then, my job was as a receptionist, so I spent the day answering the phone for a few hundred people saying "Good afternoon, Rhythm and Hues!"
The pens got smaller, and more time gets spent on each piece. It's tightened up.
I'm not sure. I think in 1-year increments.
Cool....a website where they interview artists and ask them strange questions!
It's like a line that's been thrown out that has linked a bunch of people together, from totally different places. I'm really thankful to have had my work up on the site over the years, and for the relationships it helped start.
A band from the 70's called Death. New to me.
I'll know at the last minute.
I'm cutting and layering the heaviest paper I could find. It's like carving a tree with an x-acto blade. Not sure where that's going?
