pea pods and stars, found papers layered over a gesso covered composition book from the grocery store... these are the things late nights are made of.

tattoo hearts

Originally uploaded by anongrrl

recent invasion into the sketchbook swap blog of the journals maralena and i are trading--tattoo type hearts. i have been thinking about tattoos a lot.

FarmBoy's brother opened a shop with 2 friends, and the newly blue-haired FarmBoy works as the shop boi on weekends. he's also going to begin apprenticing there, i think. so i draw, and i ponder.

lots more new work:

layers + teamwork

Originally uploaded by anongrrl

my favorite thing about collaborative journals is the building up of layers. you can, of course, do this on your own, without another person, but there is less surprise involved--less challenge when you're playing art with yourself. it's like visual chess, almost, except one person doesn't beat the other person--you just strive for a kind of aesthetic resonance.

ceramic hearts

ceramic hearts
Originally uploaded by anongrrl

semi anatomical ceramic hearts. the ones in the back have been fired--it's a stoneware clay (#153). i'm not so fond of this naked body, so i am going to paint and collage them instead of glazing since they are so sculptural. i have ze PLANS!

the grey ones in the front are greenware. three of them are in the kiln. the one standing up needs a hole drilled into it first (oops). someone, who shall remain nameless, broke off one of the valves =b. i have to 'sand' it down with a sponge and fix it before it can be fired.

preview! =) i'll post them again when they're finished.
