So much was happening, and worrisome, and strange that I just lost track of a lot of it. This post is about the weird craft stuff I focused on as an escape.
This is the last batch of sketches from a sketchbook I carried with me (theme: Undefined Variables).
My first solo show, Prior Art, is now up at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José from now ’til November 25th. The theme of the show is “analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.”
Much like my first notebook (Object Oriented) I started running out of ink at about the 3/4 mark, right near the end of these.
I put my Bookbinding I skills to work to create an accordion book for a quickstart manual for a used camera we recently picked up, the Canon EOS 50D.
This weekend I took the Bookbinding I intensive class at The Crucible in Oakland.
Next batch of the sketches in the Undefined Variables sketchbook I carry around.
For this little black book I wanted a different theme, ideally playing off of another computer science term. Hence: Undefined Variables.
A brief update: here are the rest of the sketches from my little Object Oriented sketchbook.
My pen began to run dry, so I switched to a new one partway through this batch.
It’s been a few months, and I have fourteen more Object Oriented sketches to show for it.
I found these funky little 3″ x 3″ leather-bound books at Cost Plus World Market a little over a year ago, and decided it’d be just the right size to carry around.
