Open Studio photos on megwolfe.net!

Because I'm too gosh-darn lazy to reblog them properly, you can check out the Open Studio reception pics at: www.megwolfe.net

Also, thanks everyone for stopping by the event! Albert and I are immensely tired after all the work, but it was an awesome experience to invite people into our workspace, and we hope you guys had fun too!

October 26th, the Studio door will open!

Sunday, October 26th, from 11am to 6pm, stop by my studio on Sutter street for art, munchies, and conversation!

Artwork will include framed works from "It Meant Something to Me", as well as highly affordable paintings, oil studies, and sketches (including this piece).

Sociology #2

For the past couple of weeks I've been kicking around ideas for Sociology #2. Today, at home, sick, I decided to "screw planning" and jump in.

It couldn't have worked out better. My original plan was to make the art in #2 less conceptual, and slightly more representational. There's the tease for you. This is the cover image:

The zine is still not finished yet, of course, and it might not be until after the Open Studio on October 26th, but I couldn't be happier. It'll be super cool when it's done.

Stay posted!

New Work, and Printing for Punishment

Apologies for the long delay. The past two weeks have been pretty hectic. Aside from conducting workshops with the Academy and plugging my class with Sharon Art Studio, I'm also planning for my Open Studio that occurs in three weeks. It's a lot of work, and I feel like I'm spinning my wheels. I've managed to create new and awesome business cards (each is more like a limited edition print than business card), and at the same time, I royally fubard the postcards for my Open Studio.

Honestly, I got a little in over my head with trying to custom print everything. I've been stubborn to the point of being stupid. I really don't like print companies because my images are almost always two values off, but I should have sucked it up and used one this time. Custom printing works beautifully, but not on larger prints, at the required volume. Not with my printer, anyway.

I guess this is a lesson learned (I still like the idea though, so maybe not). Stay tuned for more Open Studio adventures; I'm sure I'll have several to share soon.

Finally, I also updated with a new sketch for 09/30/08. So there's a nice little goody for your patience.
