Co-Co-Co-Controversial: “Turns out you gals are useful after all!”

You might say…. Outrageous! Sexist! Oh how far we’ve come along!…..

For war! Or just around the house…

Apparently smoke made us follow you anywhere.

But did you flip through this decade’s magazines? Or even last month’s magazine?…..

Progress? Not so much…

What thing did you need to remember? Or maybe just a picture to remind you…

Or just simple and blunt in your face?

The pictures speak for themselves.

This is only a reminder, because we should already notice.

 Because it still exists.

This is a reminder, to remember that 1950 was just yesterday, and that we are still drinking the kool-aid today…

 By the way, did you pick last-moths Cosmo? Some great tips!

“Mama Earth” Soon-to-be Design


Starts with a mama and ends with a cure. Que es?! It’s one of our new crazy cool t-shirt designs! We have received our screen printing materials and are ready to star scanning some designs to begin the screen printing process.


Hey Mushpa. What do you think about posting soon a how-to introductory screen printing blurb? We want to make art accessible for people, so what do you think about posting  instructions on how to do it yourself? Although, disclaimer folks… it might not be as cheap as a pencil and paper, but it sure will be fun!

All done with much love,


This Little Piggie

Pig Love

Dear Mensa,

First off let me apologize for the delay in response to this post and the fact that it has been a minute since I have posted any entry at all. Life has been crazy!

I love the logo so far Mensa! I can’t wait for you to finish. :] I will make sure to put it up all over our blog, Twitter, Etsy store and the like. I am so glad you finally saw the light of digital editing and art. Life is a balance between the organic and mechanic. Point is Photoshop is addicting in an OCD type of way and I love it!

On to me and my endeavors. I am working on a my little piggie (see above). I have no real idea how she is going to turn out, but I am almost done with what I consider to be a black canvas of pig to work on.  Watch out world here she comes!!! This is the first of many little creatures…

I can’t wait can you?


A Photoshop Adventure!

Logo Making

Hey Mushpa,

I must admit…This not having a job and dedicating my time to making something out of nothing is a lot of work, and like you said yesterday, it is easy to not see how each small step we take ends up rewarding us in some way. Yesterday, after many Photoshop questions later, we finally settled on some logos!…Which I think it is pretty huge in order to get our little faces and our amazing crafts out into the world. The crazy thing is, that I had no idea how much I would end up learning about Photoshop! Who needs a class when you got a nerd like Mushpa aka. the IT Phenomena (more on the tech-y nerd stuff in a future post) in the house, and a few hours of yelling and screaming at a program in order to teach you how to draw a circle!? Its official. I am hooked on the art of Photoshop. My hate talk of how these programs are taking over the Fine Arts world has been turned into an appreciation of fine art editing, which I must say is pretty addicting. Who would have thought that I could spend over three hours making a single line perfect?
Don’t get me wrong. I still do believe that it is a bit discouraging for artists who work with their hands to only see “Excellent Photoshop skills are a MUST” on ever other job description, where the actual requisite is excellence in creativity, but now that I have the basics down I have to say… To ALL Photoshop impaired souls out there, do not give up! Once you get the hang of it, this intimidating tool ends up being quite useful, and you can learn it yourself with the help of many you tube videos. Trust me, the best feeling is figuring out how to do something you’ve been trying to work through for hours.

So back to my main point….We have a logo! From our heads, to paper, to Photoshop! Here is a sneak peak. 🙂
