Remember when we first met five years ago? Probably not, because I was oh! solo mio! back then.
Or how about the next year? I started to “rededicate” myself to writing.
The following year was just a redux post.
A list of challenges came next in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight parts.
And last year I just gave you a chronological list of what grabbed my attention the year before.
What about this year? This year was pretty much nonexistent in terms of writing. I mean, I was tweeting links like crazy but no concentrated thoughts to share with you. 2010 was supposed to be a quiet and relaxing year.
But that didn’t happen.
Once again Art Alliance Austin roped me in with their TOGS competition and I organized a small-ish show to help introduce some of the ideas orbiting TOGS.
I finally went back home in August. Ahead of the opening of a show in the works for about two years, I delivered artwork to MARWEN in Chicago. They welcomed me back as an alumn and I brought a small sampling of some great artists.
Then I jumped head first into EAST2010! Soooomebody convinced me it was a good idea to hold a competition a la Work of Art. So now my first couple of months for 2011 are already booked.
I guess I just wanted to thank all of these folks for acting as my enablers:
Ernesto Martinez & Meredith Powell,
Christa Mares, Teruko Nimura, Joseph Phillips, Bridget Quinn, Tim Schmidt, Jared Theis and Nicole Vlado.
Roberto Bellini, William Hundley, Margaret Meehan, Erick Michaud, Jared Steffensen and Eric Zimmerman.
Rebecca Marino & Sean Gaulager,
Sterling Allen, Rachel Koper, Risa Puleo, Debra Broz, Shea Little, Sam Lee, Mick Santostefano, Chris Vestre, Lauren Adams, Russell Etchen, Catherine Hart, Alexandra Landeros, Andrea Mellard, Brian Morrison, and Ben Slade.
Like I said, my first couple of months are already booked thanks to the exhibits related to Eyes Got It!
On top of that, I have something in the works for late spring. This particular project has forced me to take another look at writing. When news broke of AMOA’s lot sale, I immediately recalled my second challenge for 2009. I have other ideas that need to get thought through and committed to ‘paper’.
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
