Kristin is difficult to explain to someone who has never met her.

Nik Trades me Technocolor Chicken and Super Stripey Pig for Box of Regrets and Two Empire Carpet Man Bobblehead Dolls

Another trade from Nik at scary-art.com

.
Sometimes I feel like maybe this website is a bit unnecessary and just provides Nik with a handy user interface when asking me to trade art with him. Sometimes - but not always. When we get to 100% Nik trades...it might be time for a change.

But until then, we press on -- not like the nails -- but like progress -- ingenuity -- the future.

Nik's answers to my "interview" questions.

Nik's Story that came with Super Stripey Pig:

If a painting lasts for too long around me, is about a year old or I somehow feel it's unloved I paint over it. This has happened to some paintings up to 17 times. I'm hoping one day in the future they X-ray one of them to find 16 terrible paintings underneath. It would be great, like the split horse from The Cell.

Nik's Story that came with Technicolor Chicken:

When I was working on Clocktower, the movie, a friend told me about the super secretism of Alice filming next door. They were so secretive that every time Johnny Depp would leave to make a call or have a smoke (not even in costume) - there would me these guys chasing him holding curtains (to make him invisible?), anyways Johnny would try to run away from them I pictured it like a game of Pac Man without the dots in a Hollywood lot.

Nik's Story that I DRAGGED out of him to go with the Terror for Terror trade:

We have a show in the Bay Area called Creepy Kofy Movie Time. They show bad movies from the 50's, 60's and 70's, it's a late night horror show hosted by Balrok and No Name. I've been on TV before and most places either have sandwiches, fried chicken, finger foods, etc - Creepy Kofy has a keg. Actually a kegerator (a fridge specially designed for kegs!)

Jaden is a frequent visitor at our First Thursday Art Walks.

I've even heard rumor that she let my studio partner paint her up like a hummingbird and photograph her. I have yet to see the evidence.

Nik Trades Me Tiny Head and Pillow Pal for Brick Man and Space Aliens in Crayon

Nicolas Caesar Wearing A Dog Hat

Nik and I have done at least one billion trades at this point.

It becomes kind of difficult to think of a new thing to write about ever time -- especially since we do our trades through the mail so LITERALLY -- nothing happens (unless the mean post office lady is there and then I can at least complain about how she yelled at me once and I'm now holding a grudge about it a year later).

Nik Trades me Pee Wee for Fancy Mask and Accoutrements

Nik and a Dead Guy?

Nik and I have done so many trades that I've pretty much run out of stories to tell about them.

And I've run out of "interview" questions to ask him. And once, I've already made him make up his own "interview" questions and answer them. So we've pretty much come to the end of story telling about our trades especially since they happen through the mail. There's only so many times I can talk about that one lady at the post office who hates me.

She does though.

And she's really mean.

Note from bARTer Sauce:

I must preface this entry by saying that I recently threatened Nik and told him he better submit some super good stories with his trade offers. I think I may have insulted him as he created two stories -- or one story in two parts -- the last titled, "Eat Me." Nik, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry that your previous stories sucked and that you didn't put forth much effort in that area. I do feel truely awful about that.

Eh...hem....

Maybe we better just get on with the story:
