Have I been distracted or what? I thought, “Oh, maybe I should update my blog, it’s been a couple of weeks.” No, try almost a month.
I’ve been up to all sorts of things over this past month! I’ve been working like crazy to get a bunch of merchandise ready for The Flood Shop. The new stickers, freshly screen-printed t-shirts, and The Flood #3 will be making their debut at the Pancakes & Booze Art Show tonight in Minneapolis at Barfly at 8:00 pm and then up they will go into the shop. I’m excited to show everyone what I’ve been working on!
I’ve also quit my nights & weekend job working retail (for 5 years! WHOA) so I can work on my own art and fixing up my new house – so far I’ve only done little things like paint the front door a fresh minty color, but it makes SUCH a difference. Before it was white, cracking, dirty, old… not pretty. There is so much other stuff I want to do to this place (ripping up carpets, painting more walls, extreme cleaning, hanging art & pictures, etc.) and I’m so READY to finally have some extra time to do it. I’ve been keeping a look out for some decorating ideas and I LOVE this woodsy wallpaper from Nubby Twiglet, but I don’t think I’d have the patience to actually put up wallpaper myself. Sigh.
Lots of fun projects coming up too: Inside Out Group Action Project, Incense Packaging, Vinyl Album Art, and lots of little side art projects like collages and maybe even some paintings finally. I’ll keep you posted!
