The Great Beach and Father Sky


The Great Beach and Father Sky opened last saturday, so you can go to Mollusk anytime between now and April 14 and have a look at my new batch of drawings. I'm very pleased.

here's a peek at the gallery:






Also...

I made a book!

It's called SHELLS: Vol.1
The "Shells" part refers to the fact that it's a catalogue of my collection of shell drawings of my collection of shells. I spent the Fall drawing hundreds and hundreds of shells from my archives with a sumi ink brush, the same ones over and over, and then I went back, looked at them all, and cut out the little drawings that I felt had the right touch. Before I framed these 31 shells (seen above), I made this book.

The "Vol. 1" part refers to the fact that I will forever continue to draw shells and plan on making more of these book catalogues.

If you would like a copy, there are still some left after the opening...they're hand sewn by Hannah Barr-DiChiara*, and printed on special papers

click below do get a copy for $15.















*so, hannah truly was my dream come true girl in this book project... I was in the thick of some framing madness with those little shell buds, and she took the reigns, sorting, folding, collating, poking holes, sewing, and finally, at 4:30am, right as I myself was pulling into the driveway from my late night mollusk installation sesh, pressing this batch of 60 book babies. labor and love.









AND AND AND, since we're sharing, here's the Dance Mix that I made as part of the Ribbons 'get pumped for dancing in 2010' campaign.
