Lollipops.

It's been a really long time since I've written anything here.  A lot of highly personal things have happened to me recently that have kept me away.  In the midst of all the extremely yucky stuff that was happening I had my first lollipop moment.  It happened last Saturday and I thought that I should …

In Vogue 38&39.

I cannot believe that this semester is over.  I know that is such a cliche thing to say, but it is so true.  I also cannot believe the amount of work (that I am actually proud of) that I was able to produce this semester.  I am hoping this productivity stays with me over Christmas …

The Creative Habit: Final.

Here are the two pieces that I feel best represent this series and my creative habit as a whole. This project was wonderful and came at the perfect time for me.  I had been wanted to collage for awhile, but lacked both the time and motivation throughout my day-to-day routine.  I was so happy that …

The Creative Habit: Everything Thus Far.

Here it is, all of the work I produced over the course of my creative habit. The first two get their own grouping outside of the rest because I made then with liquid glue (the constructions not too pretty).  Looking back on it now, all I can say is duhhh.  Rookie mistake I guess. And …

The Creative Habit: Collages 36&37.

Whelp I am content with saying that I made my last collage for this project, not forever, not even for this series, but for this project.  Here are tonights two pieces.   The following images should help give you an idea of just how much work I was able to produce in a little over …

The Creative Habit: Collage 35.

I didn't accomplish too terribly much today, and I am okay with that.  I was so super productive on Friday and Saturday that I allowed myself to step back for my work and all of the stress of these past few days and just breath.  It was wonderful.  I honestly needed a little bit of …

The Creative Habit: Collages 32, 33&34.

I sat down periodically throughout the day to collage and ended up making three pieces total. I plan on collaging up until Monday (for this project, I plan on continuing collage for the foreseeable future).  Monday in-between classes I will scan them all in and make them look  nice and pretty.  Then comes the hard …

The Creative Habit: Collages 30&31.

I've been quite busy with all sorts of finals today, yet I somehow managed to find the time to make these two beauties.  I think that the first one may be my favorite thus far.  It speaks volumes to me about all of the ills of our self absorbed society of instant gratification.  I could …

The Creative Habit: Collage 29.

I had a lot of thoughts today, you can read them here, but then I made a collage after I posted them so I'm posting again.  This one has a lot less words for you to sift through.  In fact, I'm done typing now.

The Creative Habit: Week 3.

This week I made a grand total of twelve collages.  Here are my favorites. I'm finding I like words.  I like connecting words with unrelated imagery and forcing them to have a new meaning.  Most of the time I make the collages first and then go through my pile of collected words and find the …
