Serious Play Documentary
Part 1of 4

Adobe's documentary about our book is finally out. They are evidently releasing a new part every week. It came out better than we expected even though I look like a total spaz.

Here's a link to the video on Adobe's website:

Capitol Hill Watercolor Society Show
at Nancy
1930 Second Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101
Open: Tues - Sat 11 - 6

Founded in the spring of 2003, CHWS is a collection of fifteen to twenty, local watercolor enthusiasts. With much admiration (and a tiny bit of animosity), the society aims to change the more official, stuffy reputation of the watercolor world. There will be some amazing, aquatic-themed pieces on display - maybe a narwhal, a boat or a bit of sunken treasure.

I forgot to post this in time for the opening, but it will be up through August, so if you are in Seattle you should stop by! Here are my pieces for the show. They are freshwater bacteria made from layered cut paper, watercolor, and ink.

Here's two process pieces that I've been working on. I'm still dealing with spiritualist themes. These were done using additive and reductive techniques, cutting away and layering, and are still in progress.
