How has your weekend been so far? Here in Portland, It’s sunny and beautiful, without a rain cloud in sight! It’s the first nice weekend we’ve had in months! I just had a really inspiring chat with Gala and now it’s time to get some work done.

I’d like to thank everyone who made it out to the art show at Nemo HQ on Friday. It was by far the biggest show yet with attendance pushing 500! The combination of installation pieces and brightly colored paintings are pretty stunning in person and definitely got everyone talking.

P.S. My brother and I just signed a bunch of papers earlier in the week and if everything goes as planned, it’s going to be pretty awesome. Cross your fingers for us!

Peace, Love & Nubbiness,



The Week in Pictures: 12.12.08

Every year, the Nemo girls (a.k.a. shemo) try to outdo the boys at our holiday party. This year we decided to make a calendar featuring our careers post-Nemo. I posed as a nurse since I’d require a profession that allowed me to wear red + white and lots of crosses! Thanks to the Studio Nemo girls for pulling off such an awesome shoot!

This week has been very atypical; I was out six nights straight at a wide range of events (see below!) that left me with very little home office time. Sure, I had fun, but now it’s time to play some major catch-up!

I haven’t legitimately been to the zoo in about 10 years, so when my dad offered to take me this weekend, I was pretty excited. We had a blast (and the animals didn’t seem to mind my marbled jeans and impractical footwear). Favorite animals that day: mountain goats!

While I was at the zoo, my brother called me and asked if I wanted to go to Nine Inch Nails with him. HELL YES! We met up with the Dandy Warhol’s manager at will-call and he graciously gave us not only general admission tickets, but backstage passes!

On a side note, totally unplanned, as I was walking towards him, I realized that we were both wearing WHITE JEANS. What a faux pas! I should have known better; this kind of stuff ALWAYS HAPPENS. Siamese twins?

I hadn’t been to a general admission arena concert since Marilyn Manson 10 years ago (where we both felt like we were gonna die from the crush of the audience), but luckily, the crowd was well-behaved and Trent sounded amazing. The light show was equally amazing.

Boy, does Nemo know how to throw a party! Our festivities at the Doug Fir included an appearance by some distinguished gentlemen in Boy Scouts uniforms with tiny green shorts (oh, those were the owners), a Journey song request (oh, that was me), an open bar (can we blame our rowdiness on it?), a magical lit up floor that always tempts me to do moves from the Billie Jean video, an amazingly tasty catered dinner (those mashed potatoes!!!), and best of all, good times with good friends.

That magical glow wins me over every time!

At some point, a Nemo-ite found a box of black super balls that had been stashed away and we went a little crazy bouncing them around the office. After one landed in a coworker’s coffee mug and another hit a few computer monitors, we decided that enough was enough. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!

How was your week?

I’ve had a red nameplate necklace for quite some time, but the white is my new favorite. Get yours here!

Mr. Mozart has been hangin’ out on my bookshelf. He’s super old school and made of painted plaster!

I’ve been working on a big, limited edition screen printed poster…and this is the text! Haha! Okay, so it’s going to be my take on a pulp fiction cover for an upcoming show. And you’ll be the first to see it once it’s finished!

I was sooo excited to score these awesome Skullcandy type-covered headphones from a coworker. Coincidentally, they remind me very much of this Nemo shirt.

A few days ago, I noticed fellow Nemo-ite Morgan wearing a blonde wig. I realized that there were also a caveman beard and an 80s rocker hairdo on his desk so Tyler and I joined in for an impromptu photo shoot! My look is little ZZ Top, a little dirty hippie, perhaps?!

Next Week Sneak Peak: Tune in for photographs of my corporate identity, a watch review, press kit advice and much, much more!

How was your week??




What I Wore: Halloween 2008


This year, I went as Minnie Mouse for Halloween, partly because I already had everything (besides the headband, false eyelashes and black lipstick) in my possession! My outfit was a bit more schoolgirl Minnie / vintage Mouseketeer than the standard.

What I wore:

Dress with belt, vintage
Red bowtie, Loulou Loves You
Minnie Mouse headband, vintage
Wool jacket, Love & Glamour
Cotton crinoline, vintage
Knee highs, unknown
Bow wedges, Corsocomo
Patent Purse, Miu Miu

The party was insanely packed and the costumes were amazing! My favorite part every year is the ‘photo booth.’ There’s a real photographer that snaps your pictures against a backdrop and they print out for you to keep.


The first set was with Lee (he was a hippie burnout! SO FUNNY!), and Todd & Alex from the Nemo photo department.


In the second set, my brother jumped in, along with Axl Rose and a skeleton girl!


As the night goes on, the photos naturally get more crazy. This is pretty represenative of how the party was looking at midnight!

I hope you had a fantastic Halloween! I was warm, comfortable and people could actually tell who I was (unlike last year when I was Steve Perry) so all in all, it was a great night!

A few days ago, I had a really late night at work but when I came home, I was surprised with this! Lee’s family was in town all week and his mom made a MASSIVE apple pie. (I secretly love having so many heart-shaped dishes and baking pans. Heart-shaped food makes everything better!!!)

Heehee, I made some new friends this week…and their names are Marni!

I’d been lusting after some wedges from the Spring 2008 collection for awhile and when a pair came up in my size on Ebay for a total steal, I jumped in! They’re literally like sculptures. In case you were wondering, they’re not easy to walk in, but they sure are beautiful to look at!

This is totally random, but if you’ve never been to Portland, one of the first things that you see when entering downtown is this massive purple monstrosity! It never seems to die. You think it would get popped, but it’s probably immortal.

One of the packages I received this week was from my Virgo soulmate, Gala Darling and it contained not only a cute letter of all the reasons why we’re a perfect match, but a GLITTER GLOVE! She’s one of the only people who understands my undying love for Michael Jackson.

I had the best latte today while dining on waffles with my friend Erin. We’ve known each other the longest out of all of all of my friends (BFF’s since 1996, baby!) so we share a very special bond.

Isn’t she adorable?!

I guess I should mention what else I’ve been up to. Nemo is having an insane Halloween party tonight (I say INSANE and mean it because over 1,500 people have RSPVed!) and we’ve been decorating for the last two days. It looks amazing!

And, with that, I am off to change into my costume!

Happy Halloween, everyone!
What’s your costume going to be this year?




Nubbytwiglet.com Art Retrospective at Nemo Design: Recap


Fellow Nemoites (Austin & Alex) made this video of my art show! Talented boys!

On October 3rd, my solo art show opened at Nemo Design in Portland, Oregon. This was markedly different from previous ones in that it showcased 30 pieces from all three of my series.

Thank you to everyone who trekked through the rain to the show! Friends, ex-bosses, coworkers, family members, gallery curators and college chums all made appearances. It totally blew me away! Words cannot describe the feeling of being surrounded by so many people I care about on such an important night!

Nemo is seriously the best place ever to work at, but even better, they let me showcase my personal work in their long, pristine, white-walled hallway.

I also had a big ol’ merch table and Lee Z was nice enough to sell the wares. Awww!

Kaebel of Sequential Art Gallery also stopped by. He is the man that is responsible for me showing art in the first place!

Friends from the high school and college years also showed up. Dani (above right) has been one of my closest sidekicks for 10+ years, along with Erin (bottom center).

An extra special thank you goes out to the Nemo photo studio employees who tended bar for 4+ hours. I love you! Also, thanks to all the Nemo-ites who purchased work, to Auntie Nubs for taking photos, Lee for the hours he spent hanging my work and printing shirts, my two gallery curators Kaebel and Cathie Joy for stopping by, Austin for the video editing, the cute Portland girls who came up and told me that they faithfully read my blog(!), Tyler for helping with the show setup, the mysterious Big Gay Wizard for suddenly appearing, to Dani for entertaining Lee & I on our way home, to Erin for putting up with my antics since 1995, and to Nemo for giving me a chance to show my work!
