I’m having a stellar time finding new and old things I enjoy. This year has been a wonderful ride and I am looking forward to next year’s exciting moments. This might have been the first year where my creating has outpaced my ability to blog every awesome moment, so here’s a snapshot of my year.
I aspired to be a post-modern Dr. Seuss drawing maker and comedic improviser.
I went in two directions. An organic growth and a repeating pattern.
I rediscovered my love of comic moments and short hair.
I became a kaleidescope inspired video-collage artist. I held one person art+rock parties with myself. It’s the most fun I have by myself.
A friend of mine received a beautiful shell painting that I enjoyed making. I went to see Arcade Fire at the Gorge Amphitheater. A magical month.
I quit my job. I made a little saying to cheer me up. I used facepaint to express myself. Looking back on it, I feel like I didn’t have to try to be a sweetheart shamaness. That’s just what came out.
I made a calla lily acrylic painting for my mom for mother’s day. I also joined a local makerspace. Fun place. Interesting people.
Made a comic style scratchboard and memo holder as a fun birthday present for one of my closest friends. So sweet. I died my hair purple, my favorite color. It was awesome.
On a whim, I picked up some scratchboards and felt the satisfying push of a wooden stylus over a canvas, revealing the hidden glory. I also went on a cabin trip into the woods to appreciate nature.
I enjoyed talking to people about black holes and moleskin notebooks. I made hand-drawn modern greeting cards.
I was a multimedia designer at Ada’s Technical books with some fun little comic stories about a penguin that traveled by balloon.
