Day 199

Wow, really? It does not feel like I have been out of school this long. But I do have to start paying back loans now, so yeah, it makes sense. Bah. I am getting a good amount of reading in. I missed it. Next on my list is to reread To Kill a Mockingbird. And then I can read Harper Lee’s other book. Ha! That’s the way to do it; write one amazing book, and then 55 years later publish your second. If only I was that good.

I am good enough to be in the CCAD Art Fair, selling stuff. I will be selling some of my boxes from last semester, some pottery, and some stemless wineglasses with the state of Ohio sandblasted into them. Who doesn’t like wine? Mmmm.

I’m still making. Can’t seem to stop. Even if it is just little things around the house. Like Christmas stockings, bookcases, a firewood bin, and Ohio stickers. (long live the Oxford comma!) I’m also making a stop-motion puppet that I started last semester for a animation class that I was taking with Tracy Robbins. He’s halfway done at the moment. Looks a bit like a skinny gray alien version of the Iron Giant with a top hat. Pictures when he’s finished.

I did see Thom’s work that’s hanging in the Urban Scrawl Gallery. Fantastic. Go see it. Now.

I’m going to go make something. Coffee, probably.

Day 164

Good news, everyone! I have finally found a studio space that is not my basement. Huzzah. Thanks to a combined effort, there are a good number of recent graduates from CCAD (both BFA and MFA) who have studio spaces. Almost. They are putting up walls as I write this. Probably. I’m not over there watching like a creeper. Now I’ll have a space to make and a space to shoot. And a place to put all my clay so I don’t look like a hoarder. I also sold a couple of boxes. Yay for making money with art. More for sale. I’m putting a paypal button on my site. Buy my stuff.

That’s it. I’m going to go read.

 

Day 613

Well, I almost have my degree. One more week. I just have to go and get the name tags out of the kiln. And organize my studio in which I have to find room for all my work. Hmmmm. There may be a bit of stacking. At least my boxes are square. That helps. There will be documentation of everything here soon. Including my thesis paper. Not that any of you want to read more of my ramblings, but it’ll be there. And if anyone wants to buy a box, let me know.

Thom and I will have our animations shown in the Canzani Auditorium this Sunday at 11:45 am at the Animation Roadhouse. Thanks to Charlotte Belland for putting that together. And on Monday, as part of ASPECT, my micro-animation-film will be shown at 7pm at the Gateway Film Center ($5 tickets). Yay!

That’s it. I’m going to go work.

Day 602

It’s almost over and done with. The show has been up for three weeks, my oral defense went well (and Nicole came up with a new term for what I do: a ceramic behavioralist. Haha! )Malcolm also mentioned that before I pack everything away, that I rearrange the arrangement of the boxes and see how far I can push them as sculptures inisisting that they are fragile. I should also send a notice to Columbus Alive that they miss-represented my work. They are not metal, dammit. But that was kind of the point. I’m working on my paper and animations. I’m going to try and get into festivals as well as galleries. We’ll see. I did not get into Ohio Shorts. Blah. There are a few more that I will apply to, thanks to Tracy’s http://noentryfeefestivals.com/ blog. And pictures as promised.

Day 569

Hahahahahahahahaha! It works!

I went to the thrift stores yesterday and, aside from the numerous versions of Trivial Pursuit, found two more working mini t.v.’s. They are about to be shucked and placed inside the boxes. This one has poor picture quality and may be disqualified, but we’ll see. It could be a different take on watching the animations. To what lengths will people go to watch t.v.?

I also submitted my microfilm (anything I make that is under 8 minutes should be considered a microfilm. Calling it a short seems too presumptuous)  to Ohio Shorts at the Wexner Center for the Arts this morning. Fingers crossed. I added music. Turn up the volume dear readers. Hopefully it will be accepted. Or a least make the judges giggle. Which is the whole point, in the end. Right?

Day 559

This time, This time,

Making boxes, Making boxes
Making boxes, making boxes
Is so fine
It’s ours this time
And won’t the children be surprised
It’s ours this time
Making boxes
Making boxes
Making boxes
Time to give them something fun
They’ll talk about for years to come
Let’s have a cheer from everyone
It’s time to party
Making boxes, making boxes
Snakes and mice get wrapped up so nice
With spider legs and pretty bows
It’s ours this time
All together, that and this
With all our tricks we’re
Making boxes-time
Here comes Jack!
