Practicing painting hair; borrowing some friends to do so.

I made this for my friend Bryan, who is an anthropologist, and whose birthday is today. I like responding to his questions with, “You tell me; you’re the scientist.” To which he always says, "Social scientist." The pink eraser hyphen is my favorite.

I made a mini volcano at craft night tonight. I decided it's like the geological equivalent of having a little devil on your shoulder. I'm not sure what would be a good natural-phenomena stand-in for an angel; maybe a waterfall? Until I figure that one out, I'm letting this volcano make all my decisions for me.
