color studies - two color palette, 2008
Jerry B. Phillips

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.

Frogman's 2009

Posted By Adrienne: 
I'm mailing my Frogman's assistantship application today.  (holding my breath) 

Either way, I'll be in South Dakota next summer with at least Jerry, Ann, Nicole, Jim, and Oscar for the first week. Hurrah! Print reunion!

Back Hatch-a! (Get it?)

Posted By Adrienne: 
Brad and I collaborated on this Hatch poster a while back but I found it posted on Gigposters just recently. We brainstormed, I carved, he typeset. It worked out. 

They were actually pretty incredible in concert, not to mention adorably in love. If you haven't seen the movie Once yet, go rent it. 

Jerry, I am done with the Mineral sketchbook - lets get this show on the road, guys!
Ann, you better update on here and let us/me know how hanging out with Mr. Hosford this week goes, since he's your visiting artist and all. I actually reminded him as he was headed out the door on Thursday to tell you hello and how much I missed you. I said "Her last name is Flowers, she draws alot of rainbows, she'll find you. " 

Hope everyone is doing splendidly.

Obama - Oh yeah!

treading water...trying not to drown

Posted By: Jerry

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?
