Slingshot!

Heyyyy!

I drew a month in the pocket size 2016 slingshot planner. It just came out!

If you haven’t seen or used this planner I highly recommend it. You can find it at your local activist bookstore, it’s cheap. There are important historical dates listed on each day and a lot of fun art throughout. It comes in a ton of colors. I got brown with silver ink this year! I love it so much!

My month starts August 15. My drawings are about late summer. 

Here are a few pictures. You’ll have to get the planner to see my other 2 weeks!

Yay!!! 

Best, Katie
   
   

New Books

Hi!

I’m not very bloggy this year, eh!?!

Well, anyways, I finished a couple of books. Here are pictures!

The first one is a west coast palimpsest of drawn, collaged, painted, collected items: a road trip map story, in code. It’s called “weird diary”.

The second, “toolbox”, is a collection of cyanotypes of a wide variety of my tools. By wide I mean wide: wrenches, keys, phone, knives, sponges, nails… with an accompanying poemstory about their sorts of uses. Disconnecting, holding fast, etc.

And I’ve been busy making prints about places I recently swam. And practicing drypoint and etching, which I haven’t done for a good long while. I’ll post some when this series beefs up a little.

Happy impending autumn lovely!

New Book (& adventure pictures)

Well hello there!

I just finished my first book in a long time. It’s pretty small, and called ‘dirt’.

I learned how to bind books in my PSU undergraduate times, and did a few here and there but lost track of that in favor of sculpture and larger paintings. That was a long time ago. Until now!

I worked on the painted pages for a little bit too long, ink and paint and dirt and tea and glitter. It was lovely and I loved it. I think it turned out great!

I fixed up a poem I’d written back in my farm days (that’s where the books title comes from) and typewrote it on the pages before painting on them some more. Ahhh sweet pagination.

I’m very out of practice so it’s not the best book I’ve ever made, but it’s surprisingly good, considering. I’m so happy that I haven’t lost the bookbinding!

Here are a few pictures of the book, it’s got a lot of pages so I’m just including a couple. Yay!

And heres a picture of a beach I just went to on the long island sound near Commack. And a picture of a relief off Audubon’s memorial in Trinity Cemetery, up here in Harlem… I just went there today, it was so awesome! If you go don’t forget to go to both sections, and to cross the street and go to the Hispanic Society museum to see the gorgeous Sorolla room (among many other masterpieces)!

Well yeah, anyhow, I’m going to make another book soon! Not sure what about yet… But I’m working on a zine about grad school, so I’ll finish that up first. I’ll post more about that soon.

Happy summer times to you, sweet person out in the internet!
