i’m jealous of erin wilbur

Jack. Pot.

I’ve never played poker before, but I’m assuming that a bunch of diamonds might be a good thing? In any case, when these little gems showed up in my inbox yesterday I was thrilled! I love these old school portraits, on hand cut wood, by Tucson based artist Erin Wilbur… and let’s just say, if I did know anything at all about gambling, I’d bet it all on ‘Diamond Green Hair Woman’. Love.

    yes! and i also love that the diamonds aren’t perfect – they’re just a little bit off… much like a few of her subjects!

    I like how the first one looks like there’s diamonds in his face too! Or am I imagining that a little?

    These are so interesting. Vintage feeling, almost. I too love that last one with the green hair.

    P.S. Diana, I totally see the diamonds too.
