She was always feeling sick and suspected her mother was responsible for it. So she plotted against her. She grabbed some books, learned about plants and their names and their effects on the human organs. She distilled, soaked, boiled, bottled and hid her concoction inside what she thought was a safe place.
Her mother turned pale, lost weight and hair, bled through eyes and nose.
Everything went according to plan until one night, mother came stumbling into the kitchen, screaming in pain like a banshee on her knees and saw it. A little bottle of have-been butter candies replaced by a bitter-smelling tisane on the floor behind the stove.
She saw her mother on the kitchen floor reaching for something gagging on her own blood and foam creeping up her nose. She then felt the cold sweat of fear. She found the poison, she thought.

I wasn’t entirely happy with the previous gouache versions of my 3NES pieces, so I decided to make a second set, this time brush and ink on watercolor paper, also 5 x 7 inches size.

This has been fun, the show is curated by Chogrin and features art by incredible fellas like Pakoto, Jerrod Maruyama, Brent Engstrom, Jorsh Peña, my sister Walrus Felts and many more.

Remember, the show opens this friday September 6th @ Bottleneck Gallery, NY.

No estaba del todo satisfecho con mis piezas en gouache para el 3NES Show, así que decidí hacer un segundo set, esta vez con tinta china y pincel sobre papel para acuarela, cada una mide 5 x 7 pulgadas.

Ha sido muy divertido, el show está siendo curado por Chogrin y contará con arte de increíbles colegas como Pakoto, Jerrod Maruyama, Brent Engstrom, Jorsh Peña, mi hermana Walrus Felts y muchos más.

Recuerden el show abre este viernes 6 de septiembre en Bottleneck Gallery, NY
