‘Murmur’ Book Status Report: 1.20.19

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 ‘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

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: 2/16/15

Two folios done, 28 more to go. Plus a couple of extra bits. So maybe, maybe I’ll finish everything by Friday. Or sooner. Which would be better. Because after this first one, these things ought to not take a million … Continue reading

Lost ‘Notebook’

Sad little lost artist’s book. So, I mailed off one of the last few copies of an artist’s book it took me a million years to make, and it ended up getting delivered to somewhere in the hinterlands of Limbo. … Continue reading

Collage Experiment: Antelope Oryx Eland Ox

A fast experimental collage that goes with the non-antelope picture down below. Just wanted to see if this would work for my book project. I think it kind of does, but of course it needs lots more development and thought. … Continue reading
