Feed Your Soul///art cards

Count down for a mini launch party/art show a friend and I are having. It’s been great fun working with Kate and I think it’s going to be smashing. Last week I worked on a series of art cards: Think-Eat-Love. Here’s a sneak peak.

What words bring to mind...

Smashing Pumpkins were a great reference point as an awnry teen and still as a more gentle adult. Some of their lyrics have a soundness on such a basic level. I'm striving for this simplicity and honesty with words and their meanings on my latest print projects. 

I think Picasso's words ring most true when he said it took him a life time to draw like a child. 

Soundess: noun

1. a state or condition free from damage or decay.

2. the quality of being prudent and sensible.

3. the muscle tone of healthy tissue.

Summer Ramblings///Pt.2

Well, it’s now at the end of summer, and between my first summer rambling post and this one, I’ve been busy busy busy planning away on a collaborative letterpress and photographic project with photographer/artist Kate Trafeli (more to come)!

And...I’m working on my first wedding invites! Wow, this is going to be a feat. Having stated in earlier posts that materials are harder and more expensive to come by in Europe, unless you devise your own. I’ve been all over Europe for material, but without leaving the comfort of home (the wonders of Internet).

Balloon letterpress prints in varying colors. Don’t have a top quality camera (next years budget),
so the colors are a bit off. Still, I’m happy to have done an image that represents my town!
Viva homegrown!
