wake up

ok, so i am finally starting to shake off that awful "burnt out" feeling.
i'm finally making and just in time for my 32947928 deadlines!

i'm doing a material study with knitting and am currently knitting newspapers...
let's just say, my hands are black.

These are some images. The origami one is in process but I probably will not keep going with it. I don't think the newspaper is for me. gahhh

bad storm

today was the first time in a long time that i brought something to my fiber critique that i was not at least 75% happy with or proud of. maybe it's stress from moving, or working, or the fact that i have only slept about 12 hours this week in total. but bad excuses aside, i sucked today and it made me sad.

i don't know what i'm doing or where i'm going with my work lately.
the negativity is brewing like a hurricane-torndao hybrid. no bueno.
i just really need to reevaluate my process and materials and how they are going to affect the whole picture. i am struggling like a drowning cat.

there's my negativity creeping up again.
what happened to my senior goals of being positive? and making badass things?
oh i see, they have been slaughtered.

but don't worry. it will be reborn again

these photos will help me do that

these wonderful photos found from:

kewpie love

So there is a new sculpture up by the Gao brother's in front of the kemper museum.
Every time I see Lenin's giant head with that miss mao on top, I want it to be my head with the kewpie doll on top. amazing, right?

i'm not saying that baby kewpie is using my political ideals to rule a mega country for better or for worse...
but now everyday at school all i can think of is kewpie.
