i'm getting ready for a collaborative show with my good old friend kj. for me, that means work upon work, priming, cutting, sanding, sketching, drawing, painting, repainting, assessing, discussing. it means adding sequins, rhinestones, gold and silver where necessary. it means learning the grim sad stories of dead rock 'n' rollers, and avoiding their eyes, drawn by your hand, watching you walk around the room. it means driving up to bellingham to look at those portraits side by side, some by you and some by she, maybe listen to hall&oates radio and add a few details here an there, gossiping all the while. but mostly, it means that the one a day project gets put on the back burner. the hiatus, it's worth it. i promise, it will be worth it. i swear.
