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

4th of July & Other Miscellany

The Penland 4th of July party, which we had instead of the usual parade because of unusual amounts of rain, was a blast. A blurry, mind-scrambling, went-by-too-quick blast. That I have only a few pictures of because I had my … Continue reading

Postcards from Last Year

…which wasn’t quite as eventful a year as The Year in Baltar’s Hair, but was nonetheless a similar type of longish stretch that went by weirdly fast. Anyway, the first two images are two versions of a postcard I made … Continue reading

Scrape Not Scoop

Good advice anytime, from the Print Studio at the Ox-Bow School of Art in Saugatuck, Michigan, spotted during the 2011 Paper and Book Intensive. All my classes were in other studios, and they were all great, but I wish I’d … Continue reading

Reliquary

You can’t really tell it too much, but this box has inside of it a bunch of wooden clay tools and beads and other weird objects all painted with black India ink. Sort of like relics, I guess. Like maybe … Continue reading
