Here and There: A Postcard Project

This video explains the project I’m currently working on. I’m making 100 original small works and sending them to whoever requests one. Requests can be made by signing up for a free account and watching one of my Saturday streams: (3pm CST or 20:00 UTC)

I’m already 20% done!!! Here’s the map of where they’ve gone so far:

Songs to Draw From

The Sketchbook Project often has some cool challenges to participate in and Songs to Draw From is the latest one I’ve taken part in. I really liked the concept of the challenge; you find a song you’re inspired by and create a 4×6 inch illustration.

From the playlist they provided, I chose “Monotronic (Secret Circuit remix),” by Museum of Love. It was something I hadn’t heard before and it felt the most like my work. The repeating line in this remix is:”The waking world was never meant for me.”

I love the idea of paintings having a soundtrack and it’s something I’ve talked to other artists about as well. It’s not uncommon for me to choose a song and listen to that song on repeat until a work is finished.

It started with this concept sketch and here are the in-progress photos:monotronicip

Here is the finished illustration:

Getting things done

For my own benefit, or “This is for when I’m really beating myself up about how I never get anything done”… It’s not quite 4pm and so far today I have:

unloaded the kiln and reloaded it for another firing

taught four classes: two clay classes, a wood-building class, and a paper-craft class

cleaned up after roughly 60 students

attempted to hand in budget paperwork

called HR/Help Desk regarding accounts and training

ground down glaze/glass on a student’s project with my Dremel

assembled 30 student gift-bags…

This still doesn’t seem like a lot to me, but I’m still working. I’m really going to miss summer school when it’s over.


Okay… I don’t think I’ve updated my website since 2006…. but HERE WE GO!

It’s gonna take me a bit yet. Still can’t figure this theme out and my domain/hosting isn’t set up, but I’m working on it. woot.
