Deconstruction

It takes me a good 45-60 minutes to make one of my annual holiday cards. That includes cutting out the cardboard, paper, and ribbon; gluing the paper to the cardboard; assembling the card; handwriting a personal note; hand-addressing the envelope; and sending it on its way. Because of the thickness of my cards, I also make several trips to the post office to stand in long lines and make sure I have the right amount of postage on each.

Today I laid out all the tools and materials I use to create one card. Below is a picture of everything and a few photos of the finished product, including the two sides. This year’s card is a play on an accordion and Jacob’s Ladder book structure, and will have writing on both sides, as the back cover flips to become the front. When folded, the card is about three-quarters of an inch thick.

Spent the afternoon at The Walker Art Center, primarily watching the wonderful documentary “National Gallery,” but also had time to briefly stroll past the galleries and take a few photos:

Shapes, Hard and Soft

This didn’t start as an assignment to find shapes, but as I was putting this gallery together, an obvious theme evolved.

All photographs were taken in Northeast Minneapolis. The outdoor shots are from an industrial yard (through which I was probably trespassing), and the interior pictures were taken at the Casket Arts Building. It houses about 100 artist studios and is one of my favorite places to browse, not just for the art, but also for the experience of wandering through a 125-year-old factory constructed of wood and brick.
