for illo friday ... {little things}

On the bulletin board in my studio, from top-left moving clockwise: an old (fading now) watercolour of the Three Kings or Wise Men (or Magi, as certain people who believe in ghosts like to say); a wee mixed-media drawing on paper of a man in a long coat with a house on his head; a pen-and-ink self-portrait by my friend Jeannette (currently starving in Japan) in which she says "By the time you get this I'll already be dead. Just kidding."; a colour print of a drawing in I did in design school, of a yearning woman against a prairie landscape; a drawing by my nephew Landon, when he was four or five (I think), of King Kong, with an inscription that I probably suck at the computer game of the same name; a sweet note from my friend Connie Pierson, concerning an art trade we did; a drawing on a paper bag, by Jeannette, testifying to an emerging psychosis; a mixed media piece by my brother Jon; a drawing of some nice German boys lost in the woods; another Jeannette piece, this time featuring a tent in a living room (a common fantasy of anyone under thirty); some painting tags from sold pieces; an enigmatic drawing by my friend Martin; a Remembrance Day poppy; a postcard with the work of Yoshitomo Nara; an old brochure from our studio collective; a promo card of my own; a photocopy of a detail from a map of the New World; more promotional stuff; a Wiktor Sadowski poster for Macbeth; a left over invite from our open house. Do not ask me what any of this means.

  8. love the Macbeth - I would have kept that too - and the piece by your brother, and the sketch of the Germans, and... well, let's just say I don't care what it means, I would enjoy having this hanging in my own studio.
