8/28/2012 – What Did I Do Today?
Not enough. Never enough.
I did print out submission forms for the 2012 Huevos Rancheros Quinceañera Celebration Silent Art Auction and started piecing together some ideas.
First thought was that a new piece would be something in the thread of my recently begun Existential Dinner Party series…with eggs of course. “Deviled Eggs and Despair?
But then I notices something long forgotten in my idea file…”A Breakfast of Eggs and Absinthe”.
As usual, I don’t remember where the hell this came from. That’s why I put it in my idea box. I guess I should have put something in my Sketchpad. Thankfully we have google to remind me that eggs and absinthe is a great(?) morning after, hair of the dog type drink. Now I’m already thinking of using eggs in a vintage graphic sign type design on old fence pickets so if I add absinthe to the mix, I should start looking at all those wonderful Victorian absinthe lithograph posters.
So posters. Looking at posters. Need to work breakfast in there…posters…breakfast…absinthe…breakfast…Breakfast at Tiffany’s! I’m going to work Katherine Hepburn (growl!) with a chicken into this bitch…with her looking at absinthe getting poured over a cracked egg in a spoon into an absinthe glass. That’s the plan for now anyway.
And that is what I did today to advance my art career.
