  • Open Studios: it happened!

    Wow, I can't believe it's already been almost a month since Somerville Open Studios! I didn't get a chance to post right after the event, but I think it was a success. Thanks to my friends and family for stopping by, and also to all the neighbor-strangers who wandered through my apartment all weekend. You were all perfect guests!

    The night before, my friend Jessie came over and we ordered a pizza and set to work setting up my apartment for the event. We came up with this display in my living room, so people could peruse the merchandise:

    It was unseasonably warm on that Sunday, so I made sure to run out and grab a box of popsicles to have on hand for everyone who wandered in. Also, my friend Michelle made that container full of "Puppy Chow" (rice chex with chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar) and we snacked on that all weekend.

    Jessie had the great idea to display all my original drawings from Miss Sequential #2 on a clothesline setup across my kitchen windows. People were really into it, and read all the panels as they snacked.


    Finally, a quick snapshot of my studio, which was finally set up (after nearly nine months of living in this apartment) in time for this event. It's not this clean anymore!


    I'll have more posts soon on the special paintings I made for open studios and the photocopying of a new zine project.
