well, two pieces of fun news amid some not so fun times.
i had the chance to finally start painting my sage cut-out; it's lookin pretty slick; i have to finish up the hair (its still the wrong color) and the jacket, and then the black outlines everywhere. i'm thinking of not using 100% black, maybe more like 80% or 90%, if i can manage to mix that. my final hurdle is figuring out how im going to hang it on the wall..the board is only 3/4" thick, so im afraid screwing things in may be a no-go :\ it may not be able to get enough purchase to hold its weight up. thoughts, anyone?
in other news, i was accepted as a participant of Cut & Paste! this is the piece i did for the test rounds;
what you do is you get a word or phrase, and then 15 minutes to make something. they give you the word a few days ahead of time, so you can be thinking about it/plan out what you want to do (cause honestly, 15 minutes isn't enough time to think AND execute). our word was 'bliss', and after another ridiculous week, i couldn't think of anything more blissful than a saturday you get to choose what you want to do, untouched by the rest of the crap. they really liked my portfolio and my piece, which is awesome, because it may pose an opportunity to find some cool jobs somewhere in these troubled times.
