The last week has been full of art-making, and I’m about to hang a show up at the Mecca Cafe (526 Queen Anne Ave. – just a couple of blocks from the studio!) – which will run through September. This weekend is going to be busy, what with Bumbershoot (which, sadly, I won’t be attending) and the Penny Arcade Expo (which I will!). The last few days, between drinking coffee, yoga classes, drinking coffee and kicking Nick’s ass at tennis (sorry, Love! Haha… not really), I set myself the task of creating ten new original pieces.
Here are some close-ups of some of the drawings before any fabric flowers were added:
And in the process of being decorated:
I tried something new and kept it super simple with these three pieces, simple planetary orbs. I (like every other kid growing up in the 80s and early 90s) wanted to grow up and become an astronaut, and these pieces let me pretend that’s what happened. They’re large in size for me (22″x30″), but now I want to go even bigger!! Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to buy enormous sheets/rolls of paper?
Tube of Momo! This is her favorite nap-spot, in the best-lit corner of the studio, on top of a large pad of sketch paper.
Some of the work, framed. Don’t the moons look lovely? I just want to keep them for myself! I imagine there will be more in the near future. 🙂 Whew! Thanks for sticking it through if you’ve made it this far. I’m super excited about these pieces, and will be now crashing into some sort of Sci-fi movie marathon (for research, of course!). I hope you have an awesome weekend. 🙂
