Ran across Gary Panter's site today. He has a blog which caught my eye. (I like reading blogs) Gary came to my college way back when to speak to the art students. At the time, he was known mainly for designing the sets for Pee Wee's Playhouse. (we all know what happened to Pee Wee) So, brief encounter with a somewhat famous artist. A "Degrees of Separation" moment for me would be that I attended Fl. State's art program for a semester and my printmaking teacher once had Paul Reubens as a student. She also taught Richard Simmons. Weird, huh?

Sarah and I have enjoyed a burst of creative energy of late. She is collaging on round cork hot pads we bought at Ikea. The stuff she is doing is strange but wonderful. I am still working with my 5X7 inch cardboard collages. Subject matter ranges from chinese fortunes to robots and spaceships. I would really like to paint but don't really have to space to "let go." Gotta keep the mess contained right now since I'm not in my own digs. I hope to post some of our collages online if I can ever get them scanned. Right now, I'm just trying to tune in to the muse daily. A little art, a little writing and a whole lot of reading. That's the stuff that will keep the creative juices flowing.
