My attempt at subversive art is shown here. The ghost and the blob are from a sketch made on 8/5/07, inspired by the San Diego Comic Con. Maybe Pac-man influenced too, DH says he sees the ghost and power pellet. I did the hatching embroidery during my sister’s play on Sunday. (I had seen it before…and it was outdoors… I was not a bad patron!)
I also attended the Wizard World Chicago show on Thursday and Friday, and met the following artists:
Josh Johnson- great brown art www.spindletons.com
Christopher Uminga- love this subversive style www.cuminga.com
Samantha Kyle- and her funny webcomic www.randomassembly.com
Kei Acedera from www.ImaginismStudios.com – Great art.
Anna Borowiecka- beautiful fantasy stuff www.wingedchime.net
Corwin Gibson Neat stuff at Luchadork

Cynthia Cummens- also an ACEO artist! Who knew? www.cynthiacummensart.com
Waiting for a report to “spool” for work, which sounds way more arty than it really is. No quilt, not yet at least, so no picture for you.
The DVR (digital video recorder) has changed my television viewing habits. I can record shows all day long, and zip through them in mere minutes. This is very effective for the shows I like on HGTV, DIY and the local PBS stations about sewing. I record quite a few shows during the day, and then fast forward through them on the weekend. If they do a project I don’t care for? I just zip on by. Missed a step? Rewind. Very convenient.
This week, I ended up doing some sketches for more weeklies. Need to get my round robin project out the door. Did a few trades on ATCards.com. And I’m getting back to my “one hour a day” thing with my artwork. Just one hour a day, and I;m always surprised what I can get done.
The quilt studio is messy right now as I opened more boxes, and DH helped hang some wire and clip systems to hang my stuff from the walls. We realized we needed drywall anchors too late, and now have postponed that project until this weekend.
My mother will be in town, so I need a fast project to complete this week’s quilt, but I am looking forward to having some time and getting a really complex one done in the near future.
