Who's my favorite derby girl?
If you answered #800, Jojo Thrasher from Roc City Roc Stars, YOU'RE CORRECT! Maybe it's just because I've been working so intimately with her boobies. Anywho, I had some major revelations on the piece this week. I was attempting to mount her bust to a window, but it just wasn't working out. I looked across my studio, and saw this mirror from a project that was abandoned months ago. It's working! I attached it, brought some branches in, and I feel really awesome about how the piece is coming out. It's still unfinished, there will be 2-3 more spiders crawling on her bust, and some bats in the background, but I think it's going to come out AWESOME. Hot glue was definitely my best friend in this :)
In other news, I crashed my bike twice earlier this week on a really nice day when I rode out to the pier, Charlotte Beach, and onwards. My bike is still being repaired, but when it gets repaired I also have some new toe clips going on along with a new back rack and panniers, basically, once I get back in the saddle, I'll be even cooler, if you can imagine that. I miss my bike though! In the meantime, I have a heart shaped scab that will make a pretty neat scar once it heals up.
Finally, my friend Kira had a sweet gallery opening this week at Lovin' Cup, and her work will be up there for some time, so if you missed the opening, go check it out! (I may be plugging this show because there is a portrait of me in it).
