Carry the one...


This was written on the table when I sat down in the computer lab. I like to think someone was cyber-stalking their crush and trying to figure out if they would be compatible age-wise.

Pick one of your past works and write about the connections with two artists' works...


Do Cindy Sherman's constructed scenes and made up identities relate to my work? I definitely don't deal with femininity and empowerment like she does.

Do Duane Michals's double exposures, explorations of the self, and overall wackiness inform and contextualize what I do? He doesn't seem to have that Charlie Brown-ish character that I shoot for.

Kerry Skarbakka and I should be friends.

Did any of these artists put off writing papers until the last minute? That contextualizes my work.
Remember when I just took pictures of my friends? Those were the days.

I made this healthy pasta salad


Because tomorrow in Body Politics class we are going on a hike, having a potluck, and doing yoga. Art school on the west coast!

I finally figured out how woodcut works


Except the lines going through the ghost were supposed to be the lines of the chair to show that he's transparent. That didn't work out so well.

Tennessee comes to Portland


Steve Cross and Megan

And Those Darlins. And Ryan Sweeny's band played today, too.

Studio Lighting


While I'm glad to learn how to control lighting better, I don't foresee my flat-lighting snapshot aesthetic going away any time soon.

Going to see Those Darlins soon


I had to get this wristband, but due to this weird thing where they were sold out but Steve Cross had accidentally ordered an extra one (because he and Megan are coming to visit soon), I had to tell them I was Steve Cross to pick it up. So then I watched some Stargate, took a picture of James Hetfield, and got a flashing LED marquee belt buckle.

Getting a head start on my next woodcut project so I don't fall behind again


Also listening to Cannibal Corpse, so thanks to whoever gave that to me as a gag gift ten years ago.

As predicted, woodcut and I do not get along


I ran out of time, got frustrated, and decided that if I was going to turn in a last minute piece of crap, I should make it obvious that that's what it was. Maybe that wasn't the best decision, but sometimes things just don't work out.
