Since the last post. It’s been a while. I understand that. And I will say that both of us are quite sorry for that. You see, a lot has happened in the last few years. We moved crossed country from Chicago to Los Angeles. We became engaged, and last march we married. Jobs have changed, homes have been downsized, and life has become more complicated.
Neither of us has made work for two years. There have been quite a few obstacles put in our path. Hopefully we’ve learned how to avoid them. We were recently asked to do a project together for an alternative space in Los Angeles called Paredon Blanco. We are super excited to work together and to make something.
More information to follow… And I swear, this site is going to get a makeover.

So, in the next few days we should be doing a major update on this website- we’ll get a gallery going of all of mattress bunny’s adventures and try to make it a bit easier to access the process of making mattress bunny.
mattress bunny is in Chicago, come and see him!

Hey all- it’s been a while. I want to let you know that Mattress bunny is hopping down to Miami to enjoy some sun and some art fairs. It will be featured in Bridge: Wynwood under the Accomplice Projects. I’ll post more info once I have it, but if you are in Miami from December 2-7th you should come and say hi to the bunny.
Well, our little mattress bunny is currently enjoying a new view of the world after a fresh install within hopping distance from where it was created.
Currently on display as part of the Milwaukee Art Walk, it is in the front window of what used to be the Grace’s Furniture building at 2618 N. Milwaukee Ave. The organizer of the event, Lynn Stevens, writes a blog focusing on issues and points of interest around the Logan Square neighborhood. From October 17th through November 2nd a number of storefronts on Milwaukee Ave. between Kedize and Kimball will be featuring work by artists from the neighborhood and artists whos work deals with Logan Square as a subject.
oh, oh, oh, I want that one! Pleeeaaase!
What a view!
Enjoy Milwaukee Ave. this fall: walk, drive, or ride on by and be sure to say “hi” to mattress bunny!
Milwaukee Art Walk: 10/17/08 — 11/2/08

We will post some more images soon. Until then, this what our completed bunny looks like:
Pretty handsome, right?
The ears definitely make it a rabbit. . .
but a bunny just isn’t a bunny without a poofy little tail.

As you may or may not know, this past week has been really crazy. We’ve been working so much we haven’t really had a chance to post images. The recent storms have forced us to work inside–both in our living room and in the basement laundry room. I know you’re excited to see what our working conditions were like, and we are excited to show them to you, well kind of. So, without further ado, we enter. . . The Dungeon!
So this was basically mattress bunny H.Q. for a few days. Not much of a view.
We had our own work stations. I operated the sewing machine stitching the two sides of the mattress together while Lucy tacked the piping on by hand.
Pinning would take too long so I just held the pieces together and ran with it.
Lucia used clips to hold a section of the trim onto the edge of the mattress.
I feel it should be noted that this dark blue mattress still smells a little like alley. Next mattress bunny we’ll take all the mattress to the cleaners!
