My apologies for the recent spate of secretive posts. I am glad to report this entry represents a return to my self-centered general-interest ramblings. Mission open studios was last weekend and as far as I am concerned, it was an indisputable success. Lots of people showed up to see art, many of them to my corner of the CELLspace warehouse, where they fed my ego. This is surely the reason I do anything.
To pass the time, I set up a little screen printing station next to my work, which turned out to be a good way to engage people with my process–I learned that many people are interested in how screen printing works. As they should be. It is the ultimate in instant gratification. I even got to print with some kids, which itself made the whole weekend worth it. Well, that, and the hundreds of dollars people seemed to be willing to give me for my art. But mark my words: printing with kids is my calling and some day I will see it through.
For right now, my calling is posting digital images of last weekend. Thanks for coming, everyone. If you didn’t come, just wire me money and we will call it even.
