It was Open Studios here last night, which went really well. This has been such a great experience. I've had a nice time, eaten a lot and met some really cool people. On top of that I've made a fair amount of art, somehow.
I sent out most of the zines and stickers yesterday as promised. There are a few people who haven't given me their addresses, so if you don't think you have please send it my way. I'm going to post some more drawings and documentation of my studio installation. For those who are getting a drawing as a reward, there's no need to redeem your reward right away if you don't see anything that sparks your fancy. It's up to you. I will be making more work once I leave and will email an update every so often.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I can't believe almost a whole week has gone by here at the residency and I haven't emailed you all yet, but here I am for my sins. Hopefully everyone who chose the eagle bag as their reward got theirs in the mail by this week. The stickers weren't delivered before I left SF so I had to reorder them here in Vermont. I will send them out with the zines in December.
I'm finally getting settled in here at the Vermont Studio Center. It is really beautiful and the food is amazing. We celebrated a nice Turkey Day with more food than we could handle. We are now eating turkey surprise, turkey noodle soup, turkey etc at every meal. Here is a photo of the spread and some of my fellow residents along with some photos from around Johnson after the big snowfall.
I will try to document some of the work that I have finished in the past week. Will post those pictures soon. Cheers!
