drawing a day ~ week 42 Originally uploaded by dressform.
monday monday... and the last day of august [how can that be??]
i was a full of trepidation when i hit publish that last post.... i almost immediately took it down. i mean i really went back and forth --- too personal? is this too much?? and all i can say it that you guys are so incedibly grand. your sincerity, your concern, your genuine heartfelt responses really got to me [and my grandma by the way]. so thank you thank you thank you. did i say thank you? i did again in the comments....
i guess in the end for me i just had to think about if i'd publish what i wrote as a story or in a book [as if i could ever write a book - HA] for anyone to read... my answer then was yes. and if i'm ok with it in that context then i'm OK with it here....
week 42 - 10 weeks left?? gulp. these drawings have many eccentric personal thoughts to them. i guess i should say that usually the drawings do, but this week there are even odder little details that i think i put in there for my own state of mind. i started to think about those little things. those moments of insertion and how they are what often fuel artwork [even the kind that looks like 2 colors and 2 lines]. then i thought about how i don't really mind exposing or talking about art i make b/c i can be more cyptic - where as words - words seem right there on the surface. no beating around the bush with those pups. even in poetic circumstances - yes open to interpretation, but little letters make up words make up sentences and BAM - there it is.
amy had a little contest on her blog - and i WON! woo... how did that happen?? i got the above PERSONALIZED box of goodness from her. so if you've been on the fence about getting a box of goodies for yourself hesitate no longer. skip over to her shop
coral has been a big inspiration lately. the color is so unique - not red, not orange, not even right betwixt or between.... so when eireann made these shirts.... i was hooked. and lucky me she sent a little drawing to match [and a grashopper felt tag which went with me to the studio for company so is missing in this photo]. you can get your own ohbara goods too
and just because.... the mug shot polaroids [been meaning to post these for a spell]
