Diggers

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

My summer goal is to develop a parallel exploration into “diggers”, the movers and shapers of my environment, large and small. The large ones are the big construction machines at work on University Avenue making way for the new Central Corridor Light Rail. The small ones are the earthworms, ants, millipedes, and other creatures who are constantly renewing the soil in my garden, occasionally disturbed by my shovel or my son’s toy trucks. I’m drawing them with my son by my side, and as you can see in my Flickr set “diggers”, he’s been making as many marks on the drawings as I am.

Prints ready to mail to my collaborator

Friday, February 24th, 2012

This week I mailed some prints to Jane Rosemarin to fold into origami vegetables. We are working on a collaborative project where I make prints and she designs origami models. I will post pictures of the models later.

These are for a little zucchini with a yellow flower. Because of the way the folding works out, I’ve printed the green on one side and the yellow on the reverse.

And this is for a carrot.
