Nearly There

It took one 90-year-long year to get to this point, which is one step away from being done.

Actual Real Progress, Bookwise

Finishing the sort-of final stage of laying out the folios for this book-like project, which is now called VGR771 for various reasons I’ll talk about later in a 300-page artist’s statement (except, not really). It’s still kind of a struggle … Continue reading

‘Murmur’ Book: Sequencing

I’ve done about 90% of the folios. This is a test sequence of about 1/3 of the book. Hoping maybe to be done with all of it in a couple more weeks. Or else.

‘Murmur’ Book Status Report: 5.4.16

At about 70% now on this year-long artist’s book project. Here’s a loud folio and a quiet folio. Still figuring out the sequencing and also making dozens of design tweaks as I go. When will it be done? Maybe a … Continue reading

‘Murmur’ Book Status Report: 5.3.16

The status is, I’m still working on it. Many, many more pages to go as soon as school’s out (I hope). The good thing about the delay is I’m seeing more ways to do this thing than before. Of course, … Continue reading

‘Murmur’ Book Status Report: 1.20.16

Still working on the Murmur book after almost a year. This is getting to be as involved as my thesis, except without the weekly long drives and the toll booth halfway and the leaky roof over the press. Plus no … Continue reading

Back to Work: ‘Murmur’ Artist’s Book

Listening to Novella’s Land while getting back to the artist’s book that got back-burnered back before the move. Like, at long last, I’m at the part after the Scouring of the Shire in my own personal story. And this book … Continue reading

Animated ‘Notebook’

So that’s all of the work from beyond the dawn of time. Now on to brand new stuff that’ll probably look kinda the same as the old stuff but also really different. I hope.

Animated ‘Quad’

I had about 48 hours 4 years ago to make this 4″ x 6″ eavesdroppings book. If I had it to do over again, it’d be at least 1000% different. Like, it wouldn’t be green and pink, for one thing. … Continue reading

Work in Progress: ‘Murmur’ Artist’s Book

Work that’s happening inside of and around and over and under other work. The whole stab-bound thing will have 30 folios (meaning 60 mess-covered pages), so there’s still a ways to go. But you’ll be able to print it out … Continue reading

Animated ‘Smart Cookie’

A miniature book from 2012. The text is from hundreds of assorted fortune cookie fortunes collected over the years. Printed from polymer plates on a Vandercook press.

Animated ‘Jumble’

A 3″ x 3″ miniature book from 2011. Printed in 7 runs over the course of 3 weeks on a Vandercook SP15, this 4-folio, 16-page book is too small to contain all of the text it struggles to contain. Which … Continue reading

Secret Project Status Report: 2/23/15

In the middle of breaking down my studio so it can go into storage, thus the various delays. But I’m still working on this. Even making fairly detectable progress, which is nice. Still a ton more folios to go, though. … Continue reading

Secret Project Status Report: 2/18/15

After about a million decades of studying art, I have at long last decided making handouts is possibly one of my top ten or twenty most favorite artistic activities ever. Seriously. And now that this bit is done, I have … Continue reading
