Non Obama Post (Sort Of)

Yes, I know. This blog has started to look like all-Obama-all-the-time. Sorry, it just so happens that my love of graphic design and printmaking and my enthusiasm about the presidential campaign and my preferred candidate have intersected via this whole "artists for Obama" thing, via Shepard Fairey. So I've just been excited to share all this information and my designs inspired by it. (By the way, I'm thinking about getting stickers made of my design, what do you think?)

What else has been going on in my world? Well not all that much, frankly. I've been pretty obsessed with all of the above. But, I am happy to report that I will be making a trip to New Orleans soon, from April 10th - 15th. Partly to start doing some neighborhood and apartment scouting with my sweetie, for our impending move this summer, and partly to participate in the New Orleans Craft Mafia's Crescent City Craft Market on Sunday, April 13th. (Put that in your calendar right now!)

I'm also interested in coming to New Orleans that weekend because of the V to the 10th festivities that are occuring. Have you heard about all that? It's a big celebration of the 10th anniversary of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues and the V-Day events that occur around the country each year, organized by a coalition of national, regional and local organizations who deal with violence against women and girls. They are shining the spotlight on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast via their anniversary activities, to celebrate and help women and girls affected by Katrina. There's a star-studded production of the Vagina Monologues scheduled for Saturday night in the New Orleans Arena, featuring tons of big names like Oprah and Salma Hayek and Glen Close (personally I want to see Jennifer Hudson!), and then on both Friday and Saturday there are all-day activities in the Superdome called SUPERLOVE, including musicians and performance artists (like Alix Olson, Doria Roberts and Lenelle Moise, some of my favorites!), as well as free massage, health screenings, yoga instruction, etc.

I may or may not end up vending - it's been incredibly complicated trying to figure out the logistics of how to vend there, so I'm still not sure - but either way, I'll be attending some of the events. I'll keep ya posted on the vending.

And that's about it. We've had a lot of crappy weather up here in Louisville, which has been keeping me indoors and away from my studio, sadly. I hope it all ends soon and Spring starts happening. I"m anxious to get back to work.
