Current state of the studio. Getting there — it’s a really big change from when we were still scraping the floor and painting things!
I forgot to post this, but Hell Yeah Detroit posted a really great article about my side project, glyphcitydetroit and referencing my work in general.
So if you’re here from that, HELLO! I’m so happy to see you! Is there anything you’d like me to cover, in terms of tutorials or how-to posts?
Working on Skillshare class assignment tonight.
This is the final dying breath of this sketchbook, I’ve managed to fill it completely in ~3 months. (Usually, this takes me 8 months or so.) Might have to switch to the other one to finish my night’s work, which is really weird and disjointed feeling. .-.
It’s that time of year again — that’s right, we’re accepting applications for the 2014 Chelsea Art Market!

This is my obligatory “hey, come to this art fair that I help host” post of the day.
It’s 100 dollars for two days! You can’t beat that deal. If you’re near or in Michigan, you should apply. And then we can totally hang out, by which I mean “I will bring you water and talk briefly in between running around like a maniac”.
glitchy self portrait quickie, because why nottttt
Hey, did you want to stalk me more effectively? OF COURSE YOU DID.
I have a new updated about.me rrrrright here, for your viewing pleasure.
I can’t stop listening to Beyonce lately. not sorry for making this.
The second part of our studio cleanup went so well, that we’re ready to move our supplies & desks in this week. Not sure if anyone who came is on tumblr, but THANKS GUYS!!
I included a shot of part of the downstairs woodshop/spray area, but actually my studiomates Matthew (& probably his girlfriend Jade, also), and Ellen set that up.
We finished from 10am-6pm:
- took down moldy drywall in basement
- cleaned and removed drywall debris
- determined strength of stairs, maybe how to reinforce them
- figured out, finally, where to put the desks, letterpresses, and other presses
- realized we might need somewhere for screenprinting too?!
- acquired another letterpress, maybe (what)
- 2nd coat of paint in bathroom
- removed paint from main room
- mopped main room
- cleaned stairwell
- disinfected bathroom drawers
- organized supplies
- disinfected bench in main area
Hopefully I’ll be able to post progress shots of the new setup in progress.
(It’s also worth nothing that the giant blue mural in the one room isn’t ours — it’s from Transmat Records. It’s a bit damaged from age & water, though :/)
we’re playing Skyrim right now, and jesus CHRIST Lydia, could you BE more passive aggressive.
I mean I know it really sucks to get a ton of free mage gear and have to like, CARRY A FEW BOWLS, but I’m just over here saving us all from murder dragons ok
