the first day of the last week...rubbish reused!


aww look at this little coziness at faith's house...this town thing might not be so bad. especially since it seems like i have already found the perfect new place! hold your breath for me that everything goes through! although i will miss this...


but the trade off is grand; a world of possibility, and so many new exciting creative minds...



what a great idea right! one of my new friends / co-workers makes these books, and they are perfect! seamless craftsmanship, and mine is already filling right up with notes and graphs and sketches and appointments and directions and such...the things you can do with trash and a long armed stapler...

so even with the new job that started right away, the apartment hunt, and my business being really really busy, i as well managed to make some new art out of trash! from this piece, i already got quite a spendy commission! pretty exciting. i love what one gentleman said about this piece when i displayed it with some other artwork on saturday, "now that's intelligent." and a little girl asked me if it was a map. my heart might burst from all of this great feedback. i have a lot of raw materials still to work with, tons of little scraps are piling up in my studio to be reoriented into artwork. but this week is gonna be rough on me. probably moving, first day of school is thursday, and i need to work every single day through the end of the month! still, i will find the time to rinse all of that would-be-trash; even if i don't make all of the trashy art this month, hopefully i can find a way to share it! and even with the move, i think i can pull off some sort of sustainable something to be proud of. junkraft comes in this week! how exciting!! don't forget to check their progress, http://junkraft.blogspot.com/
