working your own doily installation - proof !
have you heard of the working proof ? they are a cool organization bringing affordable art to the masses by some of my favorite artists and donating part of the proceeds to worthy causes.
remember when i had my sol lewitt moment and got to cover a building with doilies? and remember when i bought my own vinyl cutting machine? i thought it would be cool if i could generate a print that allowed people to put doilies wherever THEY wanted. so here it is.
you get 3 doilies in the "print" - they come with a certificate of authenticity and instructions on how to install them. you can also see how to install them on my website .
the print launches today [tuesday :: october 5th] at 1:30pm eastern time.
i put a set up in my studio. i think they are going to stay ... but i'm hoping that people try them on windows, or furniture, or the floor even. that would be so cool....
there's a little interview of me that the working proof conducted. i think it will be viewable from my page on their site... or you check out their newsletter to read it.
i'm really enjoying this drawing series by james mcmullan . [thanks dad for the tip!]
i wish i knew i could pull off sewing this toddler backpack . cause i really want to make one
i'm super duper excited about stephanie syjuco's upcoming project shadow shop
she's become very interested in "brellas" and rain. i have these rice paper umbrellas that she likes to open and carry around, but they are a bit cumbersome and hard for her to navigate through the house with. i had a lightbulb moment and remembered i had a couple of cocktail umbrellas stashed in my desk. she was so excited that it was little and she could carry it all over by her "self".
i've always liked cocktail umbrellas, but now i have a whole new love for them.
