So far this morning, I’ve sent in a pitch for a food essay, and did a little sketching — the next Spoonflower challenge deadline is at 2 today, and I still need more trees. And stars! Coming along, though. To my eye, this has a strong block print South Asian flavor to the style; fun. I want to try actually carving blocks again at some point — I did a printmaking class in high school which I really loved; it’s been 30+ years, but I’d like to try it again. Maybe over the break.
It’s been fun sketching with Debbie Allen’s documentary about the Hot Chocolate Nutcracker on (Netflix) — it’s a lot about how great Debbie Allen is, but since I imprinted early on her (FAME!), I’m actually fine with lots of hagiographic Debbie Allen love. She’s pretty darn amazing.
Plans for today:
– maybe really start reaching out to academics re: Portolan Project?
