Cryptic Notes on Slips of Paper

As I wrap up my Patreon/RozInterim site my desk is layered with all manner of cryptic notes. Some notes quote me back to myself. It’s my students telling me a quotation mattered to them, helped them turn a corner in their drawing practice. I’m always surprised what things hit and when. Some notes remind me […]

Drawing to Improve Your Mood

Recovering from the  iliac vein dissection has been difficult. It’s placed limits on my mobility and energy. I’ve had to change how I think about exercise. My heart is broken that I can’t cycle any more. One morning I wrote this caption on the next page in my journal, after a painful effort of exertion. […]

Changing Things Up

There have been a lot of changes in my life recently. I’ll discuss more about them when they make sense. But at the same time, in the midst of all this. I do what I always do, I look for ways to stir up my art life. In the beginning of September in response to […]

In Context: Anywhere But Here…

Typically when I process my images into bloggable sizes I put them in a folder titled to hint at what I want to discuss in a post containing those images. These folders go into my “possible blog posts” folder which currently has 663 folders. EEEK I’d better get writing. Well today’s image was in a […]

Flood Debris Part 3—Rubber Stamp Masking

From the 1980s until November 2016 I gathered a rather large rubber stamp collection. I used the rubber stamps for mail art and as art tools in my journaling and art. While I gave most of the stamps (and storage boxes and index) to a young stamper in 2016 (in a move I realize now […]
