You've Earned It

Christopher Clark You've Earned ItToday, and for the next couple of days, I'm going up to the city to check out the Southern Graphics Conference. I honestly haven't done any real research to see which events, demos, or presentations I want to check out. I guess I have a few hours to do that before I leave, but I think I'll just kind of wing it. I'm dropping off this print for the conference exchange, which I'm pretty excited about. I'm planning to pass out some cards for my own exchange, the Littlest. So hopefully, the last half of the participants will be confirmed soon.

dramaThe flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, and possible pneumonia kept me from really getting anything done this week despite my intentions. I did work a little bit on this one. Too bad its still ugly. Not for long.

28 Places I've Never Been

28 Places I've Never BeenThere are a lot of projects in the works around here but nothing that looks like it will be finished anytime soon. The secret, porcelain Lincoln-head project is going to take months to finish. Then there's a JFK Assasination votive candle project and a standing George Washington street-art thing, neither of which I've written about before. Two screen printing things are in the works; one (the one from yesterday's post) will be finished within a week or so, the other seems like it'll be ongoing for a long time. Then there's the above ceramic tile project that should get going this week, but since its an experiment and I have very little knowledge of ceramicing, its anybody's guess when that will be finished, if ever. Did I mention that I'm happier than I've ever been?

Exchange & Exchange

George WashingtonHere's a little preview of a detail of something I'm working on for the print exchange at the Southern Graphics Council Conference in Chicago. It is going to be a combination of digital and hand pulled printing. I know a lot of print exchangers get excited about tons of printed layers and a lot of physical labor, but I think I'm actually going to keep this one pretty simple.

In other print exchange news, The Littlest Print Exchange is chugging right along. We're up to 20 confirmed participants. I plan on having some cards made to pass out at SGC and hope to get enough interest there to bring in the final 30 artists. So, hopefully, everything will be set and I'll be able to announce a deadline date for the final exchange by the end of the month.

dramaIn the interest of keeping this site active, I thought it might be a good idea to post a work in progress. I've been slowly working on this little collage over the last couple of weeks whenever I've had some spare time. Like when I was watching The Day After Tomorrow. Maybe I'll scan it after each session and we'll all be able to see it progress from this mess into something totally radical.

A Split DecisionRemember that American Print show in Colorado? Well, Alexandra Lee, an intern at the Foothills Art Center, had a few questions about A Split Decision, one of my pieces in that show. Before I sent Alexandra my answers, Jessica edited them. She asked me if they were real or if they were totally made up. I asked her, "Can't they be both?"

My answers, as well as those of other American Print participants, can be read over at the Foothills Art Center blog.

Fake Records

Here's the useless thing I've been doing and you can do it too!

Go to Wiipedia and select a random article. Then, pick a random quote from The Quotations Page. Next, find an image by exploring Flickr's most interesting pages. When you put them all together you have a fake band name, a fake album title and a fake record cover. It's fun and totally pointless.
