His illustrations are always fantastic.

halloween 2011 construction company by everett + birdie

everett the construction man carried:
caution tape, scissors, flashlight, keys, 2 tape measures,
keys and a hammer in his work pouch
and a bunch of 
these personalized pencils to give away.
(his words)
Pencils found at
 piper was a "birdie".
(I said owl...she said "birdie")
Birdie it is.
I made her costume out of
upholstery fabric swatches cut into feather shapes
hot glued to an old one piece black velour onesie
with legs cut off.
I also added feathers to old black leggings.
I glued random colored real feathers here and there.

 we went to a little halloween party in our hood
(katherine the gypsy painting faces)
we get to wear it all again on Saturday
since our town
postponed Halloween!
