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.

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.

Pig Face

Tim's Story that came with PigFace:

Thanks for the trade. I love scary drunk clowns. I found the pig in the trash area of my building about a week after I moved in (The Prudential Building in Pioneer Square). I didn't really know anyone in the building then and most likely it was put there by someone moving out so I never figured out where it came from. The building was mostly artists when I moved in 5 years ago but now there are only a couple. I didn't unroll it till I got it upstairs. I loved it and hung it high on my wall (I have a 22 foot ceiling in my loft) so it overlooked the entire space. My girlfriend hated it but when I told her I traded it she said she had gotten use to it.

Some additional annoying questions I made Tim answer:

Q. What was your first kiss like? How old were you? How'd you make your move?
A. I really don't remember

Q. Did you find the pig face and what made you say....I want that in my house?
A. I wanted it because it was unique and someone put a lot of time, effort and paint into it. They must have had a great vision but when it didn't come out the way they wanted they threw it into the trash.

Q. Did you name the pig face?
A. No

Q. If you didn't name the pig face, but if someone was making you name it now, what would you name it?
A. It's kind of an evil looking pig so something like Scarebelch The Rancid (compliments of Seventh Sanctum Evil Name Generator) http://www.seventhsanctum.com/generate.php?Genname=evilnamer

Q. Have you ever gone ice skating?
A. Not that I remember.

Q. What was the last thing you sent through the mail that wasn't a bill or something boring?
A. I send about 100 packages through the mail every day. I sell mostly books, toys & games, vintage kitchen and vintage clothing

The last thing I sent that wasn't a purchase was a digital camera someone left up at our cabin - I mailed it back to them.

Q. Do you remember kindergarten at all?
A. The only thing I remember about kindergarten is walking to school . I went to BF day in Fremont and had to walk over the scary concrete bridge that goes over Aurora Ave.

Q. How long have you lived in Seattle?
A. Most of my life

Q. Where else have you lived and why did you leave there?
A. My parents bought a motel in Ocean Shores on the Washington Coast and we lived there for 2 years during 7th and 8th grade then came back to Seattle.

(note from Rosalie - hey - my parents owned a Motel too. The Twin Birch in Brainerd, MN. See, now we never would have learned how much we have in common if I didn't get to make you answer all my annoying questions!)
