Remember that time I had a blog?

I remember too.

In the last two years, I've been making just tons of of stuff, but haven't really felt the inclination to post it or make anyone aware of it. Silly. Now, however, I am full-on embarking on a new creative path - filmmaking - and my partner in this, the lovely mr. Timothy Printup, has been asserting and reasserting the importance of The Internet. We even have a blog about our progress, which he will be very good at faithfully maintaining, and I will be very good at being pleased with him for it. Look:! This being as it is, I am encouraged to return to my own dusty, neglected documentation of progress. So here, let me show you some of the stuff I've been doing, presented alongside a weak promise to think about being more reliable in future.

Since it's been just about 2 years since my last post, I won't ov
erwhelm you. Let me just show you the three major projects I've done, does that sound reasonable? So first things first. For most of the time I was in Baltimore, I was completely obsessed with books, and I liked (still like) the idea of combining the look and feel of a book with the simple statement of a single image. I was also really afraid of color. I took both of these things in hand and came up with 4 little pieces for a juried miniature art exhbition, 3 of which are pictured below.
The elephant lady is the tallest one, ranking it at a height of 6 inches. For each one I made a tiny book, painted each page a color I would need for the image, cut into the pages, and pasted them done to create the final piece. It was a good learning experience, but probably not a process I'll be returning to any time soon.
