It’s been quite a skully month here on the blog, eh? Blame it on Halloween and our local clothing line’s (Black Bile) close ties to said holiday and all things ghoulish.
Last Saturday, I joined my very first art exhibit. The event was hosted by our brand. Which, of course, makes me joining the exhibit not that big of a deal; I participated in a “space filler” capacity. However, it was a first and the date was marked in my head.
This was my entry:
I tried papercutting, which was also a first for me. One would think that I’d stamp the skull template and that is what I did, initially. But a night before the exhibit, I felt this itch to make something new. Being high on coffee at midnight can do that to you. So I replaced my X-Acto knife’s blade, did a bit of Googling on papercutting designs, doodled on the template, and cut away.
After a couple of hours, I concluded that I enjoy craft projects that involve the use of a sharp craft knife. I want X-Acto knives for fingers. I want to be called Meream X-Actoknifehands.
Here are the other entries. These were made by local artist friends; some also own indie clothing lines, others are top-notch graphic designers and illustrators. The boyfriend’s work is the one to my skull’s right.
