A couple of unused designs for the last month’s BPAL Lunacy tee. These were fun to make, but I ended up going with a silhouette.
So, while watching “Monsters and Mysteries” I felt compelled to sketch out my own versions of the creatures.
These people deserve gold stars.
PLANTING MOON 2013
As is the garden such is the gardener,
A man’s nature runs either to herbs or to weeds. -Francis Bacon
This Full Moon marks a time for new growth, both within nature and within our spirits. It is a time of fertility and fruitfulness, for sowing seeds to ensure blessings and bounty later in the year.
The scent of Planting Moon is that of summer squashes, pole beans, kohlrabi, tomato leaves, peppery arugula, upturned earth, and sun-warmed herbs.

SINGLE NOTE: SWEET ALYSSUM
Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
- Gérard de Nerval
A lush carpet of foam-white and dusky purple blossoms: this is the gentle, joyous scent of spring-blooming sweet alyssum.
Plus, a lunar eclipse!
LUNAR ECLIPSE: APRIL 2013
Luna’s lovely, pale face crowned by a sliver of umbral shadow and veiled by penumbral shadow: white musk, mugwort, iris, white tea, and silvered yarrow with black amber, Indonesian patchouli, fir resin, and blackcurrant.
Mea culpa! Because of C2E2 and Bats Day, there’s going to be a longer turnaround on the scents in this update. But, on the up side – the update is going up early and staying around longer! Sweet Alyssum Accord, Planting Moon, and Lunar Eclipse will be live until Mayday.
Thank you so much for understanding! Hope to see you at our booth at C2E2!
My Swamp Water Green Parlor!
Indigenous people of Brazil trying to prevent their eviction from an old indigenous museum which they have been living in for the past 7 years.
On March 22nd all of the inhabitants and their supporters were forcibly removed or arrested.
The building is being destroyed to make a parking lot :(
…for the Olympics
Seriously, why isn’t this all over my dash?
