many moons have passed
its been a while. i have been so busy, i am unsure where to focus. it is a deadly pitfall in the world of this world. interestingly enough, i suspect the action of documenting the current condition...state of my union...will result in something. hopefully not dillerium. -or vertigo.
i am in progress with a project called 'ute: urban tribal elevation' with photographer, rachael mcclellan. set in another world where the environment is so caustic, the inhabitants grow second skins from their oraface-s-es, protecting them and resulting in a fascinatingly-elaborate new facial/pubic structures. i am currently in construction on masks, possibly privates, that will be used in a series of photgraphs. the process is pretty wonderful with free-flowing dialogue between myself and rachael. we are filling out a nice world nicely. when i finish a mask, it will be given to the model with a rough world/character outline. the model will be asked to journal a few days in the life of the character and fill out the details. then a series of photos will be taken and displayed with the masks at an exhibition to be determined in the city. good good stuff. i have uploaded a few images under the flavours tab under 'ute.'
also in the world. i am working--not so dilligently--on my brother's children's book, the adventures of timothy p turtle. i have basic character looks and am in progress on a sample page and a storyboard. i feel like i should really be able to put the entire book together before i shop it. this process is admittedly slower than it should be. i think i need to put the majority of next week into a major push and do it right.
also also. i suspect at least one, maybe two more exhibitions in the next month. i have several options available and suspect it will prove fruitfull. and as always, i am plugging along on times new roman, vol. ii. i have realized it is much more in depth and will require more time. still. i have two pages finished and am picking up steam.
as i suspected, i am motivated. thank you.
