catching up: illinois trip, projecTransparency, and–other things

my trip to illinois totally wiped me out, and i came back sick and sunburnt and behind on a million and four things.

so–that was fun.

i have not finished the special video that i am touting about in the vids; it will be completed soon.  <–it’s at least started now, which is more than i can say at the time of filming.

i am also bungling about in adobe premiere for video editing because movie maker makes me angry and my mac is old so no imovie, and i’m not importing all the video onto my ipad just to edit it in imovie.

I AM AN ADULT; I WILL LEARN ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS.

or, at least, poke at them and swear creatively.  *hands*

i’m also thinking that this week i might projecTransparency about influential-for-me artists since they’re not necessarily the same as my favorite artists?  <–this directly relates to the projecTransparency supplimental down at the bottom of the post.

opinions?  is that something that’s interesting?

remember, definitely depere is next friday–july 18th!–and i’ll be at great harvest bread company in depere, wi, which i think is funny because i keep getting places that are severely bread-heavy and i have a gluten-intolerance.

(re:  it’s not funny.)

but, chief bread-head brent was super-cool, and yeah, i think i’ll like it there for the july and september definitely deperes.

i will also be premiering one of my redbubble shirts because OMG IT’S SO COOL.

and, related (because art) but not connected to definitely depere–can i write “definitely depere” a few more times?–i am leaving my studio at the ARTgarage.

that doesn’t mean that i won’t be teaching for them or participating in gallery nite or participating in shows or just generally showing there anymore, because i will; it just means that i’m not going to have a studio there anymore.  there are many, many reasons why this is happening–first and foremost, that i just don’t get in as often as i’d like–but a lot of it has to do with the ARTgarage and its board not fulfilling (or taking more steps) to fulfill its mission.

i also think that i’ve largely outgrown them, and that there are other, better venues for me to focus my time–like entering shows and making prints to sell on etsy and, potentially, conventions–on than at a place whose patronage comes from people who thing thomas kinkade and pretty pictures of ducks are the epitome of art.

which sounds incredibly elitist of me–and probably is.  there’s nothing wrong with this, but it’s not what i do, and being at the ARTgarage isn’t doing anything that i need it to do for me. (which also sounds selfish.)

ffs, WE’RE JUST NOT COMPATIBLE AT THE MOMENT.  that sounds nicer, yeah?

*HANDS*

and, i’m busy like whoa with The Rainbow Hub, so there’s that too.

i’ve also started a Patreon for those of you who might like to donate to the cause of keeping tentacle-made studios up and running.  <–i do not currently have the goals and perks up yet; they will appear soon.

please excuse the particular ridiculousness of this video.  like i said earlier, i’m learning adobe premiere, and it apparently doesn’t like videos of different sizes.  (and, i have figured out how to fix that yet.)

*hands*

artists mentioned:

_________

*tentacle-made studios and projecTransparency’s Patreon

*remember that shirts and things are available over on tentacle-made studios’ redbubble.

*and, that tentacle-made studios has commission page!

and, in case y’all are really curious about what i write for The Rainbow Hub, y’all should check out my tag there.

okay.  i’m done blathering at y’all.

courage.
