Glamourpuss, Marfa, Tiny Top Hats…

People tell me I’m crazy, but maybe because they don’t know about Julie Jackson. I  mean anyone who puts the word FUCK on cross stitch is crazy, right? Actually, it makes them a genius, but there’s more….Kitty Wigs? That’s right! And there’s a new book on it’s way called Glamourpuss. If you haven’t seen these wigs on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Grahm Norton and Anderson Cooper you can read about them in Businessweek, LA Times, etc, etc, etc….because Julie is not only a crafting dynamo, she is a marketing machine!!!!

Julie wrote this great article for my favorite Craftzine.com about
Katherine Shaughnessy down Marfa way.

I like to imagine this wig is in tribute to the Scarlot Harlot who
often sports this hair color

…but my dog wears tiny top hats so you see I live in a crazy
dreamworld and will believe whatever I want!

Lacy Been, International Super Model, has her own cat, Hot Potato,
and is working as my tiny top hat model to buy her a kitty wig.
Finally, a reason to ask someone if their pussy is wearing a wig!!!

Plutopia 2009 Smidget

I, Beth Been, am participating in Plutopia 2009: Living Systems. In an attempt to be as interactive as possible, I am sharing a little piece of the art and info related to this project.

Roller Derby in the Living Systems Theory according to the Scarlot Harlot is based on the digram below. Sorry for the long title. For some reason it had to be that way. In the end I am not sure how closely my final product will stick to the explanation, but the whole artwork started from this diagram and reading. Something being broken off from society in their own living system and needing certain things to keep it going. Currently, this work contains paint, paper, and glitter. Soon there will be a red plaid skirt and flowers. I’m NOT showing an example of the work below. That is just the inspirational diagram. You’ll have to come back to see if I show you any of it!!!

The Nitrogen Cycle is almost finished in felt, cross stitch, sewing, etc. I give you a small sample of the labels and a duck. There’s also a deer and some other happy faces. There are rumors of a duck tiara. Hell maybe a deer one, too.
