New Project Launch!!

So excited about a new project starting this fall! 

Visit the site and stay tuned for updates. 

The Zz (zee) School of Print Media is an alternative art school, beginning its pilot arts education program this fall in Kansas City, Missouri. Zz School aims to construct a classroom offering artists and art educators an opportunity to build, tear down, expand, and converse with the current academic model. We are proud to announce that this project has been awarded a Rocket Grant from the Charlotte Street Foundation and the KU Spencer Museum, funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Dreams Coming True Fast in Cincinnati!

This spring I team-taught a special elective at the University of Cincinnati with my WDD besties Matt and Jaimie.  Alongside our amazing students and collaborators we accomplished so much in a very short period of time.  I will post a few of my favorite pictures from the project here, but a full project description and more pictures can be viewed on Facebook via this link

Our class celebrating our work at the end of a long week!  

I have been so busy in the last few months I haven't even had time to chew my fingernails and they grew out for the first time!! Last week, I actually broke a nail putting lumber into a cart at Home Depot! As a dedicated and life-long nail biter, this has never happened to me before.  Here is a pic of my new super long thumbnail posing next to my soulmate, Charlene.

*All images, except the cat, were taken by WDD.

Things are Looking Up

My new print is going to be so good, especially because the official printing will be finished by real printmakers that are much more capable! I want to post pictures, but it's not finished yet, so I'll just post a nice picture of myself talking on and on and on about it.

Dreams Coming True Fast in Oregon

I just spent two weeks in Oregon teaching art with three of my personal heroes. We worked with about 22 young people to help them create a series of shadow plays accompanied by Foley sound effects.  I was so busy I only took five photos.

Where we started...

the view from our classroom...

The bare-bones of our "indoor campfire"... brilliant!

The "fire" and showcase screen in action:

and here is where we ended...

PACKing the Archives

I always find good archive items when I pack up my studio:
Above is an invitation to my senior show in college. The checklist at the top shows the printed items found inside the envelope that you will need in "the World". Please note that water was represented by a teardrop (not pictured) and that love is double checked...
