recycled shirt pillow

recycled shirt pillow, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

I made this pillow from an asymettrical tank top that I wore only a couple times but felt bad throwing away because I paid a decent amount of money for it. It had an embroidered alien dude on it that I wanted to keep. So I made this pillow and was able to keep the embroidered section and throw away the guilt of having clothes in my closet that I didn't use.

Pulpo moves to Wisconsin!, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

Pulpo(my hip-hop octopus)is in transit to meet Pumpernickel Loaf in Madison,Wisconsin!
Soon he'll be bustin' some rhymes about the yummy cheese and chocolate available there!

Have you seen it?

I found this polka dot flagging tape online. It is just plastic strips that construction workers (edit:"forest people":))use to mark their work area. Wouldn't it be nice though to have thick polka dot packaging tape like this?! Yes, I would think so.

oh, the fun never ends!

If I had kids and money to burn, I would buy them this from here! Okay,okay, if I just had money to burn I would buy me this!

Inspirational wall

above my desk, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

I try to surround myself with happy smiley colorful things so I can be distracted from the negative (murder,robbery,drugs,profanity,littering,ya know...the usual) reality outside my window.

For example yesterday these kids were walking out from school past my place and I heard loud yapping and hubbubbing going on, so I peek out my window and these kids were pissing, yes pissing, on a beautiful shiny silver car parked outside my place! As if this wasn't bad enough to witness, one of these kids saw me and was like "some b**** just looked out the window!" they must have been 10 years old!

Now wasn't that a great, heart-warming anecdote! :)

Timmie hits the pizza joint!, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

Timmie joined my bf and I at the local brick oven pizza joint, Peppino's on 3rd and 77th street in Brooklyn. We shared a Vodka sauce pizza. It was Deeee-licious. Two thumbs and lime green floppy hand up! For dessert we had a slice of chocolate mousse cake, very highly recommended! If you are in Bay Ridge Brooklyn for some reason, like if your car broke down on the way to Manhattan, definitely go eat at Peppino's!

Happy Timmie oil portrait

happy timmie oil portrait, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

This is a portrait that was commissioned with the timmie softie(below).

Happy Timmie was a good model, he didnt move around too much,he came back from his breaks on time and didn't complain about posing nude for me. I would definitely recommend him for an artist model position elsewhere.
