Confession: I'm worn out.
|Light box spine sketch.|
Dull to read. But it is true. And if I'm not honest with myself, what good am I as an artist and writer?
Here is what I'm working on now. I can't write about it with a great deal of energy, but that isn't because I'm not excited about the work. I'm happy and intrigued by it.

First up is another stitched image of my spine. This one is still in the sketching and planning stages.
Next up is a vintage handkerchief onto which I'm embroidering a fragment of a poem I wrote about hearing tiny stones clacking against each another in a man's heart. A simple piece, but I'm happy to see some of my writing finding its way into my stitching.
|WIP: Stitching my poetry.|
Had a lovely, peaceful weekend away with my amazing boyfriend in Wilmington, NC. Being outside of my everyday life made me realize that, in order to make the time to do everything I do I might, occasionally, cheat ever-so-slightly on sleep.
So, please forgive me for my low energy here. Traveling to Atlanta this week to work with Aubrey Longley-Cook on his new project. Geeked beyond belief about this stitching plus animation venture!
More to come... for now, rest.
