Here's the cover of an altered pop-up book that I did for a friend's book. I created a story around me as a little girl and the bulldog that we had. I had to finish it all up and send it overnight today, and I made it just in the nick of time.
I've been working on PoppetTM Sketches to sell when I teach at the Coupeville Arts Center and at Artfest. I have a few more to go before I think I'll have enough.
While I was working on them I was thinking about a conversation we had while at the Whipple's on Friday night. Paul and I were talking to Matthew, he was saying that he doesn't date his work anymore when he signs it because he noticed people don't want to buy the ones that are a year or so old. I have noticed the same thing when selling the PoppetTM Sketches and have stopped dating them unless they are created on commission. Interesting to think about.
Have a safe trip! And have fun.
Be sure to take some breaks-get fresh air-anything relaxing - for at least an hour each day . I know...so much easier said then done. Will you be near the coast in Washington? Oh ocean air-the best! =)
yes! I'll be on two different islands in the Puget Sound. really beautiful locations! The hustle to get ready, makes the workshop teaching feel almost relaxing!
