So we got a laser engraver/cutter in Painting and printmaking(one of three departments that I work for). I have been flipping out because I finally have a way to make some "punch-out" jewelry pieces that wont cost me a million dollars to have a die made for die-cutting. I am working on a couple of designs that have yet to be finalized but I am ready to throw a couple of them out into the blog-o-sphere and would like any input anyone has. The top of this design has a "rip-off" label for information on me and directions on how to punch them out. They are made from chipboard which for those of you who don't know it is a single ply cardboard. Also they have been "embossed" with recycle logos all over them so there is no confusion on what to do with them when you are done(the machine guns were just a test). So here are the results so far.-

so I thought this would be funny to go with the beards. Its kind of fun. I don't know maybe if anyone out there has any suggestions? I think it needs to be smaller and I might try a rope chain tonight to see if it will actually translate better. It kind of looks like a bike chain to me. Also I don't know if I am ripping anyone off or not. I thought the beard thing might be close to someone else's work that I discovered after making them. I am going to still roll with them because I don't really consider it an actual piece, just something fun that I had to try. Anyhoo.... arthur

Having trouble growing that facial hair?.....stop using those awful lotions and avoid painful transplants and get your stick on beard!!!

yep I thought it was cool so I did it. Now you too can have a beard of your own. Re-sticks up to four times.

Well its been a while. I have been busy.

I know that is no excuse but I wanted to post some images of new work that I am developing. The small pieces work as part of a larger "ideal" whole.
