Remember when Ann and I were in charge of a class exchange?
I thought in honor of my new found appreciation of colour....this old image from the good ol'days would make for a great coloring book page!
so people, colour away!
Submission will be featured in my Facebook as it's own project album!

I'm taking a class on color, and I've been working with color all semester. I'll admit I was extremely terrified that first couple of weeks, but now I'm completely approaching color with a more confident mind set.
Seriously. I started making print where I am negating the black ink for the process and product.

I don't what it is about this semester but, i feel like my life just doubled in speed and i was completely caught off guard.
I feel like the boat i'm riding suddenly burst into speed, spilling me in the ocean, and I'm just treading water watching the boat leave me behind.
I need to learn to tread water better, so i can wait for the coast guard. Does a unit even exist here in Peoria?

Hey guys. Jer gave me the heads up, so this is my first post. Things are going well in Cali. Having to swear myself to secrecy keeps me from showing anyone anything, unless it makes it to finish. So, I'm happy to share with you this piece that I worked on. Look for it in the coming weeks:
This poster isn't 100 percent good to go, because it was leaked. I dare not upload the finished one. Anyway, good to see people's stuff. Jer and Adrienne, looking forward to more sketchbooks. Good luck with the grad schools Adrienne, I , however, have no help to offer.
EDIT: apparently, the website I linked the image from didnt appreciate the broadband "theft", so I just uploaded the same image.

This is a blog by Ann Flowers. I'm not sure if I'm suppose to say that so abruptly but it's true! It's me!
Jerry and Adrienne have done an amazing job with this blog and then I went and messed it up by never posting here. Sorry, guys! Ya'll are great.
But now I have a blog I'm maintaining so I figure I can work on both, right? I'll give it a go.
My blog is here.
Check it out!
The image above is some new work. I love working on manilla envelopes. They make a great shape. They sort of look like houses and I dig houses right now.
So that's a little bit of me. And another thanks to Jerry and Adrienne for being so blogtastic!!!

So it's the final night of MAPC 2008: Fargo and I must say that it was by far the smallest conference I've been too, but I had a blast never-the-last. I have met so many people and particularly other students. The Herron School of Art kids are pretty awesome.
SGC is going to be pretty awesome. There are going to be so many people I'm going to remember.

after talking with Adrienne, I have finally uploaded these! Heading to Murray on Tuesday...the good ol' graduate school visiting artist program. Nathan and I are taking three other Bradley grads down to see the home stead of Murray's Art Department.
I thought you'd like to know. A small blurb on a show I was in last weekend:
Bi-Annual Nashville Print & Poster Parade
Featuring affordable artworks on paper for everyone!
August 29th & 30th
Reception – Friday Night, August 29th, 6 to 9 pm
Saturday Hours - 10am to 6pm
Venue – Ruby Green, Nashville, TN
If the economy crunch is affecting your art collecting or home decorating, well this is the answer to your problems! Tag art gallery’s Jerry Dale McFadden and Isle of Printing’s Bryce McCloud have put together another print and poster art extravaganza coming up at the end of August for one weekend only. The show will feature some of the hottest printmakers from around the country together under one roof. The artwork will be exhibited at Nashville’s only non-profit art center, Ruby Green. A portion of sales from the show will benefit Ruby Green.
This is the show for folks looking for unique and affordable artwork for their home, dorm room, office or wherever. There will be lots of gig posters/rock posters as well as art prints of all kinds, whether made from screenprinting, letterpress or stenciled artwork. Average prices range between $20 to $40. Just in time for back-to-school!
Some of the fine printmakers that will be featured include Nashville’s own Bryce McCloud of Isle of Printing. McCloud, who has helped pull similar shows together with TAG, is a renowned guru of printmaking here and around the world. McCloud apprenticed at Hatch Show Print years ago before venturing out on his own and continues in the tradition of vintage letterpress, woodcut and linocut prints. McCloud was featured in Chronicle Books’ “The Art of Modern Rock” along with some of the other artists that will be featured in this exhibit.
Other artists exhibiting include Lesley Patterson-Marx, Emily Leonard, Laura Baisden, Dan Grzeca, Dirk Fowler of f2design, Allison Glancey of Strawberryluna, Burlesque of North America, Mike Davis and Sasha Barr just to name a few.
Ruby Green is located at 514 5th Ave S., Nashville, TN 37203, (615) 244-7179
Though TAG art gallery no longer has an actual gallery space, this is the first installment and example of Jerry Dale McFadden’s plan to continue curating interesting art shows in the Nashville area as well as around the country. Other upcoming events include an exhibit of new work by New York artist Lori Field along with Nashville favorite Anna Jaap, to be held at Estel Gallery, September 6th – October 4th. Also, McFadden has arranged a show of new paintings by Samuel Dunson to be held in October at the Vanderbilt Divinity School, Oct. 9th through Nov. 7th.

This crit is something rather special. It's officially called, "The Advancement to Candidacy" crit, which all Murray Kids can relate to. Back in Murray, we called it "Mid-degree Review."
Basically, I'll show my work and talk about where I think it's heading and how the changes in imagery and idea are related to this direction. They will then decide whether or not I can continue with the program.
I sat down with Nathan today, and we both had the same reflections about grad school at Bradley. Murray treated the BFA students like Graduate Students. So we're actually not having trouble at Bradley, that's not including the working at developin concepts and experimenting with new processes and such. you get the deal.
I'm not really concerned with the semester ending...I'm really shocked that I'm already through 1/3 of my Graduate School Career...that's incredible.

LMU's on spring break, which means I am having an intense, uninterupted week of productivity....both making work and tending to computer-business like my Blog, and my Etsy shop. It feels springy in LA. One would think there wouldn't be a perceivable change in weather, but there totally is.
Also working on my plan to attend Southern Graphics Council at the end of the month. I can't wait.
Hey Emily! Are you going? And don't you owe me a print?
Here's a picture from Athens, dug up from the archive:

I've been doing a lot of thinking this break. It all started with one little phrase that came up during dinner at my Grandmother's house. I even more confused as to where I'm going with art.
