‘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: 1.20.19

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

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: 2/16/15

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

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

Note to Self: Lion

A recolored version of an old digital print I would draw differently now, even though it’s just four years later. I’d still keep the crazy wrong directions of the background layers, though, because of how I like it when they … Continue reading

Printing Project Rough Draft

The first step last year: get a rough draft going of enough text to fill 50+ pages. Actually, the real first through seventh or eighth steps were all about planning and making mockups. But, hard as those parts were, by … Continue reading

This Week’s Favorite Book

Of all the artists’ books I’ve ever seen or held, this one (the top one) by Sara Owen has to be one of my all-time most favorite ones. I don’t know Sara at all, but she’s a graduate of the … Continue reading

Digital Artist’s Book: Quadrupeds

I finally had a chance to make a Flash version of an artist’s book I worked on for a class a year-and-a-half back. Now that I have a template for this stuff, I plan to make many more different kinds … Continue reading

Here are some more of those folding house-like things. The first one’s called Radio House and the second one’s called Henry’s House. And that’s it for today, I guess.

Low-Res

So these are some pretty fuzzy pictures of some of my project, which I’ve got like 1 more week to work on. Fortunately my degree, if I get it, won’t be in photography, ’cause no one should ever give me … Continue reading

Ghost Book

I don’t actually have anything new to post (isn’t it nice to know that from the start?). Being empty-handed, of course, wasn’t the plan when I made all those resolutions a few weeks ago about how much more I was … Continue reading
