The School of Art & Design Annual Staff Exhibition will open this Friday, June 8 from 6 – 9 pm at WORK, 306 S. State St., Ann Arbor. The show will run from June 8 – July 6th.

I have several works in the show including my shrine, “Yin-Yang, Me-Earth”

Now that I am finished with the big rush to get things finished for the show, I am having trouble getting myself motivated to work. I will only do artwork if I set aside time every day to do it – even when I don’t feel like it. I know that once I am in my studio the creativity will take over and the fear will leave me. So today I pretty much forced myself to go to my studio. I cranked up CBC radio 2 and furiously cleaned up the enormous mess that had accumulated. Who knows what I will work on tomorrow. When I think about it I feel nervous. But all I need to know is that I will get into the studio tomorrow and start making something and getting the place messy again.

I hope I will see you at the opening tomorrow night!


I’m busy working on the box. I called it the Zen box earlier, but that’s not entirely what it’s about. I have to come up with a title soon.
