pictured here is my submission for the toronto vs. nagoya show that my pal saddle kobayashi is putting togeter in conjunction with city of craft.
it's pretty exciting. saddle and i settled on the idea that everyone should submit artwork that was 4" square (and not too deep) to save on wall space and shipping charges.
when i embarked on this whole journey, i thought i was going to do something that combined my newfound love of quilting hexagons with paper and ink. in the end, everything i made looked totally terrible so i just stripped down the idea, and came up with these ink and thread illustrations that satisfied my eyes. it was all kind of manic and strange but in the end my deadline panic seemed to result in something new that made me happy. how could i forget the most repeated lesson from theatre school? keep it simple, stupid.
oh, and this is aitor's submission:
why is he forever better than me?
