working on the submission(s)
Earlier this evening my friend Matt was able to come by and discuss my ideas for the working part(s) of my submission(s) for that toy-themed show.
It occurred to me that my original idea for piece #1 had a flaw and we went over my drawings and the updated work around fix that I came up with. It is sometimes hard for me to convey what it is I am thinking...plus I am not at all mechanical-minded.
I tried to draw what I was talking about but we ended up using the stuff from the hardware store as props and we finally connected on what I was trying to explain.
Matt is much more detail-oriented than I am and he drew himself a better sketch of what he needs to do.
The second piece I will be submitting is still at Matt's and is ready for me, he just didn't have it with him when he got my text.
You know, I have had these pieces in my head for a long time. It is really cool that this show came along and that they may possibly be accepted for it. Whether that happens or not -- I think these are going to be really great and I am excited to be working on them.
Tonight I will be working on the toy part of piece #1. I will be working with plaster cloth and I am not sure I will be done in time to meet my blog post midnight deadline, and I know I am not going to want to stop and clean up enough to take photos...so I am checking in with this much for now.
