Work Books

I’m not exactly sure how my “work books” started? When I look back on my first one, I see mostly notes. Towards the end of that book a few doodles start to appear, but mostly notes from meetings and conversations with bored colleagues. And for some other reason, I changed out the book after my first two years as a full time employee. Doing this has now become a tradition. The second book is filled with collages and found images and notes. The third book has even more. More than once I remember sitting at my desk and gluing things in when I was bored or completely stressed out. A few colleagues looked at me a little strangely but no one really said anything. By the time I got towards the end of my last semester with the third book, I was a little self-conscious. Only one person has said anything slightly off color to me about it. She told me, “Yeah, I used to do that in elementary school to all my notebooks.” It was all in the tone, all in the tone. No worries, she doesn’t work there …

First Summer Makings

All I’ve done the past two days is make stuff and watch movies. I’ve worked on collab books, postcards, all calls, and a few add and passes. Needless to say it’s been a productive couple of days…creatively. It’s Tuesday and I haven’t put on shoes since Sunday. I may venture out into the world later on today, but who knows. The first project I tackled was the Ray Johnson show in NYC. It’s something the estate is putting on in honor of the man. Hopefully when Misty and I get up there this summer I’ll be able to see some of the items and even better, be able to see my work hanging in a nice museum…that’s never happened before. These three cards are the start to what I hope is a creative summer.
