This is going to seem like a blast from the past, but:
Katie has encouraged me to finish this project I started almost a year ago and got too distracted by other things to ever finish. And it’s a good time for me to get cracking on it: This piece was originally conceived of as a kind of birthday present to myself. Each square of the piece (this image = one square) contains 36 elements (in this case, teeth, but in others leaves, people, etc) and when the project is done, there’s supposed to be 36 squares. The text, which has already been written and planned out, refers to some issues that I’ve been struggling with in my life as an artist.
All that is good, I think. But there’s just one problem: In three months, I’m turning 37, and I only have two squares done. Am I really going to want to be working on a project about being 36 when I’m 37? Probably not. So I’d better get this done ASAP.
