The Archosauria, and Welcome to It


The Art Show, a project Scott and I (and Raven) have been obsessing over for the last three months, is finally done. We took all our physical pieces to the coffee shop on Saturday and said our farewells. On Friday, we had run all the 11x17" descriptive text pieces (and some digital art) over to Kinkos to get them transferred onto foamcore. The next morning it was done, and we were quite happy.

So the show will be hung by the coffee shop's owners on the 1st. Scott and Raven and I all intend to post a "virtual art show" on our respective blogs, with our respective pieces, including digital representations of the foamcore text pieces and our own notes. Aside from short autobiographies, we were unable to inject any "artist comments" into the show itself (something I would have liked to have done). For those in town, all three of us will be at the coffee shop on Friday the 3rd from 5-7 p.m. Com'on down and say hello! For the rest of you in Readerland, I'll start posting my Virtual Art Show the second Scott gets me jpeg's of my pieces.

Oh, and there might not be an art book. That would be a real shame, because we can SELL the art book, and include bonus material, like a "making of" DVD or, more likely, pictures that we weren't able to shoehorn into the show itself, plus those artist comments I wanted to use. Scott is burned out on The Archosauria show, and doesn't want to go through the hassle of designing and printing an art book. I don't blame him, but it would be a cool idea for the future. You could all just flood his inbox with requests for an art book (scott dot elyard at gmail dot com). Hey, I'm just sayin'...

So yeah, it's out of our hands and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to seeing some of you (I hope) on Friday!

Yup. Right down the street, toward the Snow Goose.

"Hey, I'm just sayin'..."

*Pbbbbbbbbth!*

Money is a far better tool of persuasion, but it has to be substantial, and right up front.

But honestly, I doubt a book would sell. The expense in terms of time and cost is not inconsiderable, and I just have no energy for this right now.

Perhaps in the future...

You know, you could use the show logo and or poster I put up. It would enhance this post vastly. Or directly link to my blargh, if you're feeling particularly lazy...

Big, giant congratulations!

A show opening is so exciting. And with coffee present, you'll be all shaky and excited.

Wish I could be there!

(Zach, could you send your private jet for Combs, Spears and me? )
