o r i o n

It is time for the Orionid Meteor Showers! Science nerds say last night was meant to be the best night for the showers but it looks like tonight might be okay too.
I made this connect the dots of orion last week in the letterpress studio. (the actual print doesn't have the lines)

It all rocked a little bit...

Found Art, Gallery Ready

If I could make and patina something like this, I think I'd be pretty pleased...

A well presented argument for DIY

I subscribe to and agree with this line of thinking. Twice this week I've been in conversations regarding the paths and ways a maker can show and sell their work, and how there is a distinctly hierarchical system in place that presumes the only way an artist can be "successful" is to participate in that system. My thinking is that one should define success on their own terms, and act on that definition. The existing paradigm will never be changed otherwise.

DIY: make your own show. Or something like that. It seems to me that can be both personal and scalable. Flattening the playing field would benefit both makers and those that might be inclined to buy their work. And provide much more variety of venues and presentation.

It's something to ponder...
