flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread
This actually does relate back to that museum trip — there was another really nice exhibit of photo manipulation before Photoshop, starting with novelty and art photographs from the Victorian era. I was sad not to see any Julia Margaret Camerons, but there were soooo many other neat images! There’s a good review with a few of the images here.
Also, sorry I didn’t post yesterday, but I got busy with a variety of projects, including posting all 26 Owlphabet drawings on my Redbubble store because J asked me to, so really, it’s his fault. Oh, and don’t be horrified if you see a $90 pricetag on something – there are a variety of choices down to pretty inexpensive cards and stickers. You don’t have to buy a framed canvas of my doodles, I promise.
Of course, looking at Redbubble got me thinking about another project, so I’m working on putting together a 2014 calendar of existing and new cartoons. We’ll see how it goes. Also, I have a show to design and an opera company to work for and both Wonder Woman and Boo (Monsters Inc., not Radley) costumes to make, so I get distracted easily on my days off.
Oh my god, y’all. I just realized that, if I get my act together and make this thing, I could have a sleeping bag day and cosplay at a convention AT THE SAME TIME. Fucking genius. Now I just need to plan in icepack pockets and make it easy to carry for when I inevitably have to go outside and take it off because Atlanta is HOT.
See you tomorrow!
