mail time fun

Got my first WAFA postcard today, from Anthony Zinonos.  Pretty excited to work on my postcards for the group!


always coming back home to you

Despite the varying musical choices I make, I always seem to return to the same few bands.




(disregard that this includes scenes from a movie… it’s the most decent vid I could find)

This will soon make sense.

I’ve decided that for my Vermont residency, I will recycle an old moleskin.  I need to prepare all the pages.  Excitement!


haunt you like a ghost

I’m not normally a sad person, but I like to listen to songs that are sorrowful.  Here’s one of my favorites:

also this:

Finished that part of embroidery I started last week:

I’m pleased with the progress so far!

Remember when I wrote about WAFA?  That has really motivated me to set up a decent Flickr page (I have one for Brown Paper Bag, but not really one for personal use).  Hopefully I will be better about updating this.  When something is not Google-centric, I have a terrible time remembering to update!

Also, if anyone wants to buy me a Flickr Pro account, I won’t be sad about it.


slow your roll

I have stumbled upon the work of Ky Anderson recently and it’s been one of my favorite things I’ve seen in a while:

99.9% of the time I am really unhappy about how my wrist is still not fully healed.  There is that .1% of me, however, that is glad that it makes me slow down.  I have to streamline my current activities because I don’t have the mobility right now.  Did you know how bad multitasking is for you? I read this sort of stuff about the internet and our society and it makes me sad.


art lately

I have recently sent off a big freelance job to the printers, so now my evenings can be spent working on my own pursuits. This mostly includes tackling laundry, but here is something that I started too (gimpy wrist and all):

Think of this image like a venn diagram – the middle will be fully sewed.

Exciting news!  A month and a half ago the We Are Fucking Awesome (WAFA) collective was accepting applications for consideration to join their group.  Essentially, WAFA is a collective made up of artist from around the globe.  They are focused on collaborative efforts and initiatives, creating an open dialogue that supports an artistic community.  I submitted my work + application and found out last night that I was one of a few people to be invited to work with them.  Yay!  I am looking forward to connecting with everyone in the group.
