April 17, 2008 : Pole Vault for Illustration Friday – Fail

{click for a larger image} 04/17/08. This piece made me happy to work on – I enjoyed it. I am also happy with the outcome. Hopefully I can get back to working like this regularly. So this is for the Illustration Friday theme of “fail”. This piece needs some explaining to make sense. When I saw the theme posted I thought it was dead on, since I have been feeling like a failure these past few weeks. Though I kept thinking about the subject and I kept thinking about how no matter how great you are at something there was a point where you probably failed at it. Each failure helped you improve and get better – so I wanted to create something that illustrates fail in a positive way.

6″x 4″ :: $150 framed original piece. Email for availability and payment directions or for more information – like larger and more detailed images.

I LOVE the detail of the show – its my favorite part!

Saturday is the Hyattsville Arts Festival and I will be making all the one-a-(week)day pieces available for sale. So if you have you eye on something, let me know.

Don’t forget, let me know what piece you would like to see on my next postcard – leave a comment!

Artwork Status – April 16, 2008

Well I hope today marks the day my funk is starting to fade away. I was able to work in the studio for close to 4 hours tonight. I worked on a piece, and actually enjoyed doing so. For the past month I have been forcing myself to work and I could not concentrate for more than an hour – but today I was more like my 2007 art self. I really hope my creative lull is coming to an end. This piece should be done tomorrow and is based on the Illustration Friday theme of “Fail” – but the piece has a positive vibe to it. Yeah!

April 10, 2008 : Illustration Friday – Save

{click for a larger image} 04/10/08. This funk is starting to really piss me off. The more uncreative I feel the madder I get and is just gets worse everyday. I figured I would go and make some drastic changes in my life hoping that would help. I even went and cut off most of my hair and while I LOVE my hair – it did not help. (For people that dont know before this I really have not had a ‘real’ haircut since 3rd grade {I am 30 now} I have had it trimmed and such, but I went and got a good 10″ removed – so for me this was HUGE!) I am even redoing my website hoping this will help. ARGGGG – so frustrating.

So I did start this piece based on the Illustration Friday theme of “save” last Friday and it took me this long to finish it. I was always a saver – I would hoard any money I would get growing up , though I had a happy face bank. I never would spend money on little things, I would always save up for something BIG. I was a freakishly responsible kid. Still now I can’t spend more than $5 on a whim – I over analize almost every purchase.

8″x 8″ :: $200 framed original piece. Email for availability and payment directions or for more information – like larger and more detailed images.
–UPDATE 08/03/09 – Original has been sold.

As a sidenote: Next weekend is the Hyattsville Arts Festival and I will be making all the one-a-(week)day pieces available for sale. So if you have you eye on something, let me know!

Also – let me know what piece you would like to see on my next postcard. (maybe I’ll even send you one!)

New piece almost done

I am close to finishing a new piece based on the Illustration Friday theme of “save”. I am still in a bit of a funk but I am coming out of it. Sadly, I am (and have been for 2 weeks) fighting a sinus infection and using a knife with a blinding headache is never a good combo.

This weekend I attended a wonderful event hosted by the The Women’s Caucus for Art of Greater Washington, D.C. I want to say thank you to the organizers and I had a wonderful time meeting everyone and throughly enjoyed seeing everyones art. There are some amazing artists in this organization.

Also, I am making a new postcard, and would love to hear what piece you’d like to see on a postcard. So leave a comment or send me an email letting me know what you like to see on a new postcard.

I want to invite everyone to come and see my studio space this Sunday. As part of the Greenbelt Community Center’s artful afternoon I will be having a studio open house. I have originals on display, prints on display, and books available. I will be in the studio available for questions or for some chatting!

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
