I Like Having Plants


I know this is different than my other posts where I show images of my Perler bead designs and weird pictures I make of myself almost daily using Pixlr. For a while now I've been growing plants. About a year ago gnats invaded the state because of the rain and ruined them but I wanted to continue having plants in my place. I used to get them from Trader Joe's but those lasted a few weeks before suddenly dying so I decided to start going to actual nurseries for plants.


Anawalt on Santa Monica and Highland is amazing. The plant dude is really nice and helpful. Another is La Cienega Nursery on Sherwood Dr. I was confused because the place was empty of employees but when I left across the street was the jungle looking area. The guy working there is nice and honest. You tell him what you want to do and where your plants are going and he will tell you what you should and should not get. Besides Cam giving me plants like my weird one that lifts itself at night (an the awesome shelf) I headed to this place called Xotx Tropico. I have passed this place legitimately hundreds of times and did not go because the bad Yelp! reviews. Turns out the guys there were extremely helpful and nice. I left there with four new plants.

I did this Perler bead version of Pablo Picasso's painting Le Reve (The Dream) based off of a pixel art version created by JooJaebum that I found online. Click here to check their stuff out on Instagram.

Tiny Toons Perler Beads

My face hurts because I went to the dentist this morning so I distracted myself by making some Tiny Toons Perler beads based off of grid patterns available online.

Swedish Chef Perler Bead

I did this Swedish Chef Perler this morning while forcing myself to watch a TV series. This is based off of a graphed pixel design online. Many people have made this so I am not sure who originated it.

Current Perler Wall

This is how my wall in my living room looks at the moment. I was gonna do three old school video games in frames and realized that I had four.

Superman Perler Bead

I made this Superman Perler based off of a found Lego design earlier today. Might frame it. Might toss it under the be.

Last night I made this Dig Dug design based off of video game sprites and used this small square frame I got a few weeks ago.

Framed Bubble Bobble Perler Beads

Well, not framed yet. But it is on a canvas to be framed. I did this Bubble Bobble last night while watching TV. I had made the characters years ago but did nothing with them and decided to try something.
