New smoke drawing series “Jail Flowers,” my first since 2015! Smoke & Wax on paper with cut-up stories from past and current female inmates at Lowell Prison, just south of Gainesville, featured in the Winter 2019 edition of The Fine Print – an independent arts & culture mag in Gainesville, FL.
“Jail Flowers” is a work-in-progress, and along with completing 9 smoke drawings to match the 9 stories, I’ll also be going over the images with jail-issued pen and deodorant for paint and will use a tampon for a brush – materials often used by prisoners for painting. *sample pictures here are low res&underexposed
I got caught up in facebook land. It’s definitely been a helpful bulletin board/show getter but also it’s been soul-sucking and time-consuming. When all is said and done with Baby Killers shows which is happening this month, I’ll be retiring my account for a while while I work on new songs and artwork. In the meantime, here’s the latest Bruise News/Letter. Thanks for reading!
And here’s a cool tree from jungly Gainesville, FL:
Also thanks to Banks Street Bar and Big Mouth Burgers also in New Orleans! Awesome shows!
