Hello again, academia.

It’s that time of year, when the seasons haven’t quite changed but everyone’s already pinned their heart, mind, and soul on autumn’s presence post-haste. It’s those lingering weeks before and just after Labor Day, when books and supplies of all sorts are being purchased at a break-neck pace and everyone’s mumbling the words professor and syllabi.

That’s right, guys: it’s Back To School Time.

Back to school, for me, means pulling a Virginia Woolf and finally gaining a studio of one’s own. My prior experiences with open and borrowed studio space in basements has been replaced by a clean, well-lit and ventilated cubicle within the larger environs of Herron’s senior studio room. It’s more room than I know what to do with, if we’re being honest, but a week’s worth of nesting instinct has changed it into the images you’ll see after this cut:

Studio, View I

Behold: it's like a depiction of all of my work in various stages of its lifespan!

And here's my studying corner, now with 33% more taboret. (Pro tip: I'm writing this here right now.)

This is the "Comfortable Staring at the Painting" corner, now with eerily matching paper and lumber.

And finally: a glimpse of the work in progress after ages! It's close to being done, after which I'll have a nice little post on its behalf.

There’s something fantastic about having a dedicated space; you’ve seen the large pieces of paper, of course, which are going to lead to paper cuts and all sorts of fascinating flights of fancy, but there’s also sketchbook ideas cooking and Secret Projects I’m not quite allowed to release to the public yet. School is basically mad promising right now, everything blending into this one piece of Really Awesome Things. So you’ll forgive me if the ending of this blog is a bit lacking, I hope, as I have panels to construct and project proposals to paste.
