I started out this day with a favorite sweater, a light-light weight olive green cashmere sweater with these things that hang down and are supposed to be tied. I never do. Tie them. Except today. Today, I tied them.
And then I tested turning this painting into a card. It seems I like making cards way more than I thought I would. You fiddle with it this way, tinker with it that, change the curves and saturation in Photoshop, crop, adjust … you get it. I was only showing off how many ‘workshop words’ I know.
The one on top is printed on shiny photo paper. I had a plan. The plan needed me to haul out my super duper sharp Turbo charged paper cutter. It’s fantastical. I know, because about a month ago, when I was trimming monsters down to fit on blocks, I also trimmed my index finger down. It is nice and svelte now. It bled like a mother. For a little bit, we were even worried because the cut was deep, but that paper cutter blade is so sharp, it kept the wound nice and tidy.
Much like it did to my sweater tails, all tied up, high enough to rest on top the paper cutter where any normal person would barely notice them. Which is how they got sliced. And a little bit diced.
