Retrospective Introspective Selfie Fest 2014

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.

December

I aspired to be a post-modern Dr. Seuss drawing maker and comedic improviser.

November

I went in two directions. An organic growth and a repeating pattern.

October

I rediscovered my love of comic moments and short hair.

September

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.

August

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.

June

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.

May

I made a calla lily acrylic painting for my mom for mother’s day. I also joined a local makerspace. Fun place. Interesting people.

April

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.

March

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.

February

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.

  1. Back in the 1990’s, year end newsletters were all the rage with Baby Boomers. It was how you showed that you were doing better than your friends. I love your rendition of the same tradition, except with illustrations and photos and introspection instead of braggadocio. Love and All the Best for the coming year!
