less but more… i decorated for the holidays… and i wasn’t planning to (and i didn’t mean to steal the tree)
So very cozy for me and Joe (lower left). I decided to get a real tree (no white or pink fake this year). I bought it at a grocery store (so I thought), stood in line with the tree on the floor beside me. Bought my groceries, paid… picked the tree off the floor and walked out. Realized about a third of the way home that I didn’t pay for it. The true meaning of Christmas?

So, I’m finally starting making some art work. Though this was simple enough. Bought these framed vintage “pretty ladies” and painted beards on them. Very effective. Love.
SISSYDUDE LOVES: Sarah Vaughan (sparkle sleeves & sunset orange lipstick) sings The Beatles’ ‘And I Love Her’
Another repetitive image collage! Cher will always be loved. She’s been in showbiz for 6 decades. I wanted to show that… but use the same present day image to do it. Yes, she’s had work done… trying to keep herself looking ageless. I didn’t want to be mean and all “Death Becomes Her”, so I just kept layering lines & colours till I liked what was there and then started cutting bits of her into pieces and attaching them. Subtle facial reactions … eyes closing & popping, goofy lips… Cher. VIA
Sissydude gets mentioned in Art, Porn, Life A Few More Words in Praise of Tumblr by Evan J. Peterson for THE STRANGER
Now blogging more regularly at Sissydude.com, John Webster is a talented artist and queer Tumblr icon, arguably the reigning queen of these bloggers. The photos of his house are stunning (it’s a museum of kitsch). His site is the best example of what classic gay men think about: sex, photography, interior decorating, penises, crossdressing, facial hair, vintage pop, jockstraps, little knickknacks, guns, semen, and dead actresses. It’s a damn fantasia.
Thanks so much Evan! xoxo
So, I bought a cute vintage lamp a few weeks ago and it inspired me to re-paint my office/studio from it’s Easy Bake oven blue to the light pink I painted throughout my apartment. It took too long but it’s done! I quite love it… come see!
Finally have a website for my art… it’s looking pretty good too. Just have to ad more work.
Please take a look! Just click any image on this post. xoxo J
OKAY, so I’ve added a few new design items to the SISSYDUDE shop @ Society 6… and here’s what they look like:
