art star day 1

It got off to a quick start- penn's landing is right on the waterfront and it's pretty. I really had no idea how far my booth was, tho, from the parking lot.
It was very windy and my brother scott and i were trying to stick the tablecloths down. we were moderately successful.
Then around 11:45 or so it rain rain rianny rained. The super lovely people at another booth i can't remember the name of gave my brother and I a piece of plastic to put over the back of our booth which helped tremendously.

But then at 3-ish, it started raining again. by this point, my throat was on fire (still is)
so that part isn't so great. but for being in crappy weather for 4 hours, i did ok. maybe rain makes people decide faster?

my cell phone died. i don't know if i can resurrect it. it's not like it even got that wet. i swear to god, motorlas are the worst.

I finished this book the other day. I feel like I've been carrying it around on the metro for forever- it's a hard book to read in 14 minute increments.
I'm not good with reviews, but I would have to sum up the book in one word- whoa.

It's pretty spectacular. I look forward to more works from Mr. Adrian.

Meet Corn-y

Here's a bad photo of a pile of Corn-y's.

But at least you'll get the idea.
I'm still fretting over how much stuff to take to Philly at the end of the month...I'm hoping I'll have 10 of these guys finished.

A Contest!

Ok, so you know (or maybe you don't, but you do now...) how my little guys all come with stories?
I have a new character (he's not really a monster) called "Corn-y". He's an acorn with legs and boots and a moustache.

I'm trying to find (or write?)a good acorn-pun joke....So far my friends have submitted two- if you have one or can write one, I will send you a free Corn-y. I'll post photos of him later. He's super cute.

Partially inspired by a 30% off coupon and partially inspired by insanity, i bought a basic, starter carving set and a 'quick carve' speedball block. i really don't need more distractions (hence the magpie) but i am really intrigued with printmaking.

illegal art

Ok, so it's not exactly illegal, per se but I'm doing something now that my current employer told me I was not allowed to participate in.

But the best way to get me to do something is to tell me I'm not allowed to, or that you don't think I will.

I'll show you.
