I've been doing a little adaptation of a passage from Virginia Woolf's "To The Lighthouse" in VR. Quill, of course. Just as Lily Briscoe is probably Virginia and / or her sister, and Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay are based on their parents, the house in the Isle of Skye is, I think, based on Talland House in Cornwall. I've developed an emotional scaling algorithm to help me make this story-place. JK. More to come.
Both are possible here!
I gave a piece of character/ environment work for a recent project to Artists for the People. It's a charity print shop, set up with the generous help of Lily Padula and Alyssa Napolitano.
100% of the proceeds are donated, & INPRNT matches 10% of total donations each month.
Artists come from all over the world & work in several different fields from photography to textile design (and of course illustration.)

Another music piece for Deanna. Always a pleasure. Two days ago my friend Sam's girlfriend, Avery, said "Oh, I liked seeing that piece of yours in the New Yorker. The cellist one." And I said "Yeah, they usually get me for cellos and sting instruments and violins and, yeah, just cellos, mostly." And she said "Yeah, I can see why that would be." And then I smiled at her and looked down.
Because it's one of those things, you know? Like, does it mean anything about my character if I like the cello and viola pieces? What does it mean that I'm not brass? Like, I'm not a saxophone girl, don't get me wrong. But what I'm trying to get at is, like, really, does this make me limited in some way that's obvious to everyone. I like woodwinds. What I really want to be is an oboe person. I like Antonio Vivaldi's sonata for Oboe in c minor. And the Duck's part in Peter and the Wolf. Like, if Sam's girlfriend doesn't know me and she sees me and she thinks it's so obvious that I'm strings then maybe I should just die now, you know?
I'm gonna have to think about this some more.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Leo Jung, Creative Director at California Sunday, Inc. at a student conference about process at CCA. He asked me to illustrate this set of images to accompany Kat Southerland's performance at the recent Pop-Up Magazine event in Chicago. Her story is about a young girl from the south who moves to Chicago as a creative punk looking to find herself. She finds herself in a nightclub. She eventually moves to the east coast, experiences a few hardships, and finds herself back in Chicago, again. Thanks, Leo!
They meet here at the same time, most weekdays.
They have a way of speaking that allows me to assume that one was the other's psychiatrist, or that they once dated the same person. They now have more in common with each other than they do with almost anyone else.
My thanks to Deanna Donnegan for another Music piece. I got a kind of Nagel vibe on this one.
Plan for flux in the applications of your retirement income. Yet again, SooJin gives me a platform to make what I like:
I hope you don't mind. I'm sorry if you do.
