Free for All Thursday

Well, first of all, here's a sneak preview of my work for the library show, which now because of scheduling issues is being installed next Friday, at the very end of the month. A little later than originally planned, but better late then never and I'm happy with all of the work so far. Also, I got a chance to go out and buy some killer fabric, which you can see a little of in the above photo.
Next up, my three favourite things for the day. In no particular order,

Bibimbap (which I'm making for dinner tonight)

And Star Wars. I've been re-watching the first three (aka episodes 4, 5, and 6?) and it's been awesome. Perfect accompaniment to getting work done for the library show.

Also Mill St. Stock Ale, apparently. Another perfect accompaniment to all the productivity.

S'all for now folks, new art asap.

The Library, and another three favourite things

First of all, I'll explain why I've been so MIA for the last coupla weeks. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm working on a large number of large pieces for the library at York. They're all mixed media and text based, and I've got a couple done. However, I still need to finish seven of them, and I'm still working six-ish days per week. Gah! Where does the time go, we're already well into April! I'm going to photograph the finished ones hopefully today and I'll post them, as well as some new small (5x7!) pieces soon.
For now though, I decided to post three of my favourite things from around my apartment. I've already posted pictures of my cats and my typewriter, so those don't count, but otherwise:

My duvet cover (and the duvet inside)
Yeah, it's just a cheap duvet cover from Ikea but I like the pattern and the duvet is feather filled and so, so comfortable. Every sleep wrapped in this blanket is an awesome one. And I love my sleep.

My moose mug.
It's got a moose on it :)

My Minolta camera
This is my favourite of these three items, and is right up there with my typewriter. This camera took me through five years of being an art student and all of my best photos came out of this guy. I haven't used it in months and probably won't really use it again, but I love this camera.
