School is nearing an end. While I've been trying to get everything together for my thesis show, I've also been learning my way through the screen print process. I find this to be the most addictive of printmaking processes. Layer and after you watch your image build up. In my case, I started drawing birds. I would do ten or more layers of hand drawn color separations until I was happy with my little friends. When I pack up for the summer in a week or so, I'll be antsy to get back to screen printing. It's funny, I put off taking this class because I was so focused on other mediums. Who knew I'd love it so much?

One week at a time. That's all. I recently had the pleasure of delivering a few friends to start their brave journey along the Appalachian Trail. We took to the backroads of Georgia, and after scaling quite a mountain side on a barely passable road... in my little tiny sedan, I dropped the boys off at the Springer Mountain trailhead. There next step will be north towards Maine. Inspiring, adventurous, courageous, and fun. I haven't had much time to leave Atlanta, so while I was out in the woods I made sure to take it all in and enjoy what I found out there. Fresh air, green trees, perfect breezy sunshine, and a lot of time to think. I am jealous of those boys and their adventure. Soon I'll have another adventure of my very own.

I've been gone, gone, gone from internet land for quite some time. This seems to keep happening. A lot of bad news has come my way, and a lot of work has yet to be done, so I took the time to focus my efforts elsewhere. I'm working my way forward. On the horizon is my BFA thesis show, in which I will finally earn that elusive degree in printmaking, packing up nearly every single thing I own to live for a while in a quaint Atlanta storage unit, and heading to Vancouver by way of New Hampshire... more on that later.
