I was just drafting my 2016 State of the Artist on New Year’s Eve, when my regular working computer crashed hard. Like, data-recovery-because-I-failed-to-make-a-backup-for-three-years hard. I’m taking it in next week to see if I can pay someone an exorbitant amount of money to mitigate my foolishness.
But that’s all last year’s troubles. Let’s talk about this year!
As you can see, I’m going to start casting some lead-free pewter jewelry. I’m just getting my new studio set up and hope to have that work up in the shop in the spring.
There is something a little refreshing about starting the new year without any of my old work available to me. I feel a bit naked, but I also feel like I have an opportunity to start a whole new body of work, and that’s pretty neat!
I saw Star Wars with some old pals, and I’m going again tonight. I really enjoyed it. I expect there to be fanart. Watch my Instagram.
