just rebindinging some blank signatures torn out of mostly-filled but retired notebooks

(process photos of a pocket-sized notebook in varying stages of being rebound)

look, i basically refuse to buy new envelopes because i can't get all the orgs i donated to last year to stop sending me donation solicitations by mail, so i just blank out the return envelopes they send me and use those for my own outgoing mail.

(feelin' extra good about it because i'm using these for my tip envelopes, which is other people voluntarily subscribing to me sending regular donation solicitations by mail. everything comes full circle!)

back at it! lookin' good now!!

i redrew the master so i could print with the drawing side down, which made a big difference for line clarity. this is a lesson i apparently have to learn every time.

[photos: two ink drawings, one a mirror image of the other; me and my father crowded around a bathroom sink washing prints together; four prints of varying darkness stuck to a mirror to dry]

oops, underexposed

the 2.5 year old nephew said "panta" instead of "santa" so:

[photo of me making a funny face while wearing a crochet nose cover with a tiny plastic octopus stitched to it. it is very silly.]

finally got around to putting up nicer documentation photos of the window gallery installation i put up this summer!


hard few days of hikin', totally worth it. grateful that my body exists and that i can use it.

over 20lbs of water we gotta carry in, because desert backpacking 😭

making up a master for a new zine

here's that house tunic i was sewing a while back! fleece outer, lined with leftover flannel and old t-shirts. freehand patterning. machine assembled, with hand finished neck and arm seams.

it's been so good to wear since the temp is around 50F in the pocket studio now!

[three-photo montage of me wearing a grey tunic with black gores and a black leather belt. it looks very cozy. ]

"absorption", 2008; undergrad work.

i wasn't overthinking my work as much then, and i don't think this is the sort of photograph i could make today.

i made a 44"x84" print of this, which got stolen off the wall where it was hung for display. i've always appreciated that theft as a high compliment :)
