Battling Gnats


Over the weekend I got some more plants from Lucy and a few from Camille. As you can see I love having plants in my house. I had some small succulents and used some cheap dirt from the 99 Cent Store that may have already had gnats in it and next thing I knew I had a swarm starting up. Last year I had some plants hardcore infested and at the time did not know how to get rid of them properly. Now I do. I got them, cleaned them off, handled the gnats, and put them in one container.

Fourstar Drawing

Whenever I take a long break from drawing (which is all the time nowadays) I end up drawing Fourstar. The style hasn't changed much in years because I do not draw often enough. I plan on fixing that and doing more drawing along with my podcasts...and music...and Perler beads...and writing. This is an example of the four stages of the way I draw. Pencil, ink, thicker ink, and accenting ink.


Mike Tyson's Punch Out Perler On Canvas

Did a simple canvas design and put these Mike Tyson's Punch Out on it. The canvas is an old one that a friend gave me that is really thick wood. Took three coats of green paint to cover up the image underneath.

Wrestlefest Perler Beads On Canvas

I slapped some paint and splashes on a canvas I got earlier today. Then I added my WrestleFest Perler beads I made a while back on them. I wanted to do individual canvas (30x24) but they only had three.

Framed Bowser's Castle Perler Bead

I framed the Perler of the Bowser's castle I did a while back. Aaron Brothers is going out of business so their stuff is cheap right now. I used spray paint for the background which is far too messy for someone like me to be dealing with.

Prince And Stormtrooper Perler Beads

It has been a minute since I did any Perler beads. I did this Prince based off of a design made by Gresseth. I also took some Stormtrooper coasters I made for Miss Jackie (same with the Prince) and painted a canvas and put them on.

I Like Having Plants


I know this is different than my other posts where I show images of my Perler bead designs and weird pictures I make of myself almost daily using Pixlr. For a while now I've been growing plants. About a year ago gnats invaded the state because of the rain and ruined them but I wanted to continue having plants in my place. I used to get them from Trader Joe's but those lasted a few weeks before suddenly dying so I decided to start going to actual nurseries for plants.


Anawalt on Santa Monica and Highland is amazing. The plant dude is really nice and helpful. Another is La Cienega Nursery on Sherwood Dr. I was confused because the place was empty of employees but when I left across the street was the jungle looking area. The guy working there is nice and honest. You tell him what you want to do and where your plants are going and he will tell you what you should and should not get. Besides Cam giving me plants like my weird one that lifts itself at night (an the awesome shelf) I headed to this place called Xotx Tropico. I have passed this place legitimately hundreds of times and did not go because the bad Yelp! reviews. Turns out the guys there were extremely helpful and nice. I left there with four new plants.

I did this Perler bead version of Pablo Picasso's painting Le Reve (The Dream) based off of a pixel art version created by JooJaebum that I found online. Click here to check their stuff out on Instagram.

Tiny Toons Perler Beads

My face hurts because I went to the dentist this morning so I distracted myself by making some Tiny Toons Perler beads based off of grid patterns available online.

Swedish Chef Perler Bead

I did this Swedish Chef Perler this morning while forcing myself to watch a TV series. This is based off of a graphed pixel design online. Many people have made this so I am not sure who originated it.
