What I'm Working On
I've been carving crayons like MAD! I have a show in March in LA... more info to come... and one really BIG commission.
This is my workspace, also my kitchen table. It's a bit frustrating working from home. There are so many distractions, but it's also cheaper than a studio and very convenient! I can work at 2am... 4pm... anytime I want to and with no commute. I've considered renting a studio space for years, but in Seattle it's impossible to find an affordable space. Sometimes I think I'm holding myself back by not having a proper studio. But I'm doing alright... there's always an element of second guessing with being an artist. That's why I like to do things last minute, that way I don't get to think about it too much. I tend to over analyze and kill ideas before they have a chance to manifest. I've also learned from a few good friends to just "work" and let it come out. (Thanks Robert!)
Another shot of the workspace. I also have a "dirty" space, i.e. the garage, for sanding, cutting and anything that requires good air circulation.
