stark raving whimsy II

here is the next panel of stark raving whimsy. i think i am going to do three of these square panels and then do a larger piece like the big one of moses jones. these ones are kind of setting up the larger piece.

i am working towards creating a different kind of website. i guess with a blog. an art gallery. and a store. i am wondering about selling original pieces–postcards & cards mostly? and also doing prints, cards, and postcards of original works–more mass produced. i am wondering if i should use this domain name or my other alter ego “quixotic mama.” i want to be more aggressive about putting my stuff out there. maybe even create an actual book instead of just zines?

i am reading barbara winter’s book making a living without a job. i totally fit the profile of the joyfully jobless. i completely agree with making a life–not just a living. now i just need to make it manifest.

for further experimentation for my art class and in the interest of evolving my art, i think i will stop by the habitat for humanity re-store and find some random materials to try to put ink onto. that should be interesting.

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.

  1. I think that’s a great idea! You could probably put your stuff on etsy too, especially if you’re doing cards and prints! I really want to figure out how to make a living from blogging/arting too… will you stay still do it all from a wordpress site? Love the new page (obviously)!

  2. i’m working with a friend of mine to do the website. i think i could keep letting wordpress host it. that might be the easiest/cheapest way. i need to figure all that out & then i will blog about it.

    thank you for your wonderful support & enthusiasm!!
