In late 2011 I was introduced to Patty the Princess of Power, the Epilog
Laser Cutter at MAKEatx in
Austin - a membership based laser-cutting workshop run by the wonderful Eve and
Kristen. I'd had a few ideas in mind for years, but never actually
finished producing them because I hadn't found the perfect medium. The
laser cutter is just that. I began using it as an illustrative medium,
instead of paints or pencils. Every image is first hand-drawn, and my
hands are on everything that I make, even if Patty helps out.
Luckily, I found a couple of wonderful laser-cutting options in the
northeast. I'll be spending time at both danger!awesome in Cambridge,
MA and at AS220 in
Providence, RI. I'm looking forward to not only continuing my own
production, but also being around others who are using these amazing machines
for creative purposes. It makes it all the more inspiring.
illustrations are individually etched into birch using the laser-cutter.
They come packaged as pairs - there are 36 possible combinations with each
roll! Current varieties include dating dice, rainy day dice, and
breakfast dice. Stay tuned for more!
Whether you've been married for
50 years or dating for 5 weeks, these dice are sure to add to
fun spontaneity to your date nights (or days!).
From bacon and eggs to waffles and yogurt, the options are
endless. Most item are pantry/refrigerator staples, and
one die is 100% veggie. Purchase here.
Rainy Day Dice!
Goodbye to cabin fever! Roll one or both depending on
how much time you have to fill. All activities are great
for families, couples, individuals, or roommates!Purchase here.
Custom Dice - made just
Want to have
dice made for you or a loved one with 12 activities of your choice? Yep,
I can do that. Packaging will also be customized with the recipient's
name. To keep drawing time (and therefore cost) down, I ask that you
choose from my ever-growing list of options that pair with illustrations I
already have. If you'd like, you can choose 10 pre-existing options and
add two new ones of your choice for no extra cost!
& moons to monsters vs. monsters, the options are nearly endless.
Choose your colors - mix and match your board and your choice of
critters. Ten playing pieces come packed in hand-stamped bags. Both
pieces and board are hand-painted.

ornaments, and more!
years ago, I had the idea to invent a bear species for each letter of the
alphabet (oh, the things that come to mind in the wee hours of the
night). It wasn't until I was introduced to a laser cutter that I
realized the perfect medium for this project. All images are my own
original illustrations, etched into quality wood. Here's a
sampling. Click below to find the full alphabet and individual bears on
