Thank you to @waterhouseltd for being an amazing collaborator and for printing and publishing my riso book “Between Tenses” !! 😍 Wish I could have been at the @richmondzinefest with you!

I’ve been thinking about this book so so much lately and it is what inspired the theme for the exchange portfolio of the same name that I recently put together for SGCI.
.

Here is my statement about the book and what I’ve been thinking about: “Between Tenses" is about hovering in between the past and present. Being consumed by attempts to clarify my past inhibits my ability to form a clear memory of the present, and so it goes. The photographs in "Between Tenses" were taken throughout my childhood and then altered to simulate my present memory of the events, while the text is my present self examining the act of recalling those fragmented moments.

It’s always fun to switch between print processes and I’ve been glad for the opportunity to get inky with some intaglio plates the last few days.

Teaching the Zines class at @centerforbookarts is one of my favorites because it’s one of the few where we talk about content.

Meet your blind jurors. Hah! Thank you to everyone that applied to my @sgcinternational exchange portfolio “Between Tenses.” Because of how many responses I got and how many great people I know that applied, I decided to blind jury the exchange and I recruited @kyle_a_holland to help keep it fair. I’ll be sending out email responses by the end of the day (probably) so keep an eye out!

Today’s been fantastic. Hanging out at @peterkrutyeditions (thanks for always taking care of me!!) and seeing Lil Dude and Girlfriend (amazing drawing by @olfactorygleanings) then going to the @centerforbookarts to (finally) finish the second part of the judge chapbook and ending the day by chillin with one of my fave humans @noe.arteaga.
