slightly wonky


Art A.D.D.

So, I managed to get a bunch of stuff done before the weekend.  I probably won’t get much time to work on stuff until next Tues.  Yes, this stuff is “all over the map”.  Think of it as a pu-pu platter of attempts. 

I keep thinking that I need to make a more coherent set of things.  Then, I get distracted and want to try something new.  Thus, the randomness of it all.

I’m not going to post every day.  While I’m still working on my 365 projects, I’m not going to barrage you with posts.  It’s too exhausting for everyone…well, mostly me.

So, if any of you have some thoughts on this stuff, I’d love to hear it.  Even if you tell me NOT to EVER do that again…at least I’ll have some feedback.  Right now, I am kind of working in a bubble.  I am trying to investigate ways to possibly get some feedback from people.  So, until I figure that out, this is my forum for comments!

I’ll stop rambling now, as my hands are too cold to type, and just show you my stuff.  I kind of like this one:

a detail of the above print:

another similar one…I like the colors, but the design is so-so:

this one was not good, and i couldn’t save it:

and a detail:

at last…something recognizable! no, it’s not me…:

And now for something completely different…a pencil drawing:

I liked this drawing, so I made a print of it:

And I made another little book!  This one is about winter:

even CLOSER:

Whew!  Okay, that’s it for this week.  Seriously.  Speaking of winter, my hands are so cold that I can barely type.  We’re supposed to get snow this weekend too…brrrrr!  Have a good weekend!

little book

Okay, so I started another lino print. This one was less abstract…and I like it much less.  The ink is a dark blue/black.  I intend to color in the white areas, when the ink dries.  Sigh.  I’m trying not to let this get me down.

Then, as I was inspired by yesterday’s mini books…I decided to make another!  Yes, this one is totally handmade, so it looks…well, less polished.  I had fun doing it.  I may be on a book making binge, as this one was fun too!  I like being able to work as I go along, and not have to plan too much along the way.  Unlike the linoleum print, where one has to plan out a little…this book had no plan at all! MUCH more fun.

Now, inside:

And the cover:

And some close ups:

I’m happy with it.  I know…WHAT is it, really?  Who knows.  Like I need more books in the house?  Hmm…like I need more of anything in the house?  I’ll have to purge some of someone else’s books to make room for these.  JUST kidding!
