press on tattered cultures mended tales

mom! you're famous.... well... that's you in the middle there. artweek reviewed the tattered cultures mended tales show that i was in [in hawaii] and they used the image of your portrait :)

you can read the whole article here

color tests
[this shot is better larger]

a girl could get used to 3 days in a row at the studio. i was thinking about what colors i wanted to use for my two new drawings. i tend to stick to a two or three color colorway [with various values in the colors]. but for the big drawing i really wanted to branch out into a little family of colors. [bottom row]. if i get stuck in thinking about new color combos i go and visit kuler .

karen gelardi book

my karen gelardi book arrived the other day. it's so satisfying. i love that i was a very small part of her installation assembly

and in other paper news:
ron nagle book

a while ago i did a little photo shoot with ron nagle

his gallery in belgium was putting together a catalogue and they wanted an artist in studio shot. i ended up taking all these other shots of "stuff" b/c his space was so cool - and they used practically all of them. i love how the designer set up this grid. since i'm not a PRO photographer i get a big grin when i see photos of things i've taken in print.

have a good evening and a great thursday!

Sending huge publication cheer to you (I am off to read the article in entirety in a wee moment), and I am so delighted to learn that you had and enjoyed three whole studio days... bliss and productivity combined perfectly.

seeing your colorways has been a highlight today; made me smile. I was thinking on colour papercuts this morning and seemed hard to find a good one under the grey light the cloudy sky was giving me... :)

congratulations on all these wonderful things lisa! the photograph grid is fantastic. and hi lisa's mom :)
your color study has been in my head since i saw it on flickr. thinking a lot about colors lately, and combinations, and feeling like i am very shy/nervous about doing new combinations- silly huh? i think i need a jolt of play... an afternoon with crayons and pencils and no holds barred.
