SeriouslySickSocks™ New Life….

Posted: August 9, 2017 in Uncategorized

I have been busy this summer leading two workshops at the Dairy Barn Art Center, Athens, OH which coincided with Quilt National (quilt exhibit through September 4, 2017) and curating MONSTER, an artist invitational show that will open the end of this month, August 25. I will be an artist in resident the duration of MONSTER, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1-6 PM, breathing new life into my adorable horribles! My workshop will be located in the front gallery of the Majestic Galleries and visitors are welcome to stop by and visit while I work on new inventory (finally!). New SeriouslySickSocks will be available at Starbrick Artist Gallery, Nelsonville Ohio during the upcoming  holiday shopping months.monster postcard layout

I am sharing a link from a little project a vis com student did of my SeriouslySickSocks™.

Mike interviewed me, recorded, took photos at my office and studio as part of a project during his senior  year full of video/photo projects. Here is the result even though it is a year later….not a problem and it turned out pretty fun!

Here is the link: http://vimeo.com/51137652

Enjoy.

This is how my brain has felt for the last 6 monsths!

This is how my brain has felt for the last 6 monsths!

….This is how my brain has felt for the last 6 months!

It has been a long winter and not so pleasent.

But the sun is starting to shine more and there are events starting soon!

During the long winter I have been coming up with some new ideas for seriouslysicksocks™ but I am in catch up mode with a number of major projects in the studio and there is  much busy-ness in the ‘real world’ work place.

So …new seriouslysicksocks™designs will be happening soon!

An Invitational Art Show (10 women artists) is happening April 27 in Nelsonville Ohio; I have been asked to show recent artwork.  The opening will be April 27, Sunday evening probably around 5 or 6:00pm till darkish???? not sure. I have 3 new paintings, 3 drawings 1-3 new doll design and a projection of this years GIFs creations. But if you would like to know more info about this show please send a note to serioulsysicksocks@gmail.com.  I will be posting more info about that show soon. Everyone is invited.

Really…I promise…I really do want to be better with this blog thing!

I have been in 2 other art shows since last fall. Women of Appalachia (WOA) was up Nov – Dec 2013  at the Multicultrural Gallery, Baker Center, Ohio University, Athens Ohio. Here is a link if you would like to read about it. I had 3 drawings hung in that show. When the WOA show came down at Baker Center the show traveled to Park View Gallery, Chillicothe Ohio. The WOA show was up in Park View Gallery Jan-Feb 2014.

I attended an experimental drawing and painting class, fall 2013, Ohio University, Athens OH. The class actually had me very busy and it showed in my seriouslysicksocks production over the holiday and winter…  BUT! it was an awesome class and I had so much fun, learned lots,  I spent a lot of  time on something I love to do….paint and draw! One painting from that class will be hung in “POP Culture Art Show”, (Opening Friday evening, April 18) presented by Arts West our Community Arts Center, Athens OH. This art show is to coincide with the upcoming 4th! Annual Ratha Con Comic and Pop Culture Comic Convention, April 26, 10:00am – 5:00-pm at the Athens Recreation Center, State Street, Athens, Ohio. Here is a link to Arts West and the Ratha Con Facebook page (go like them!).

The last year has also has had me loving ….and I mean loving! to do animated gifs. I am so inspired by what other people are doing with GIFs! Tumbler is my favorite place to go for inspiration and I do have a GIF blog there. If you would like to take a look at what I have been working on here is the link:       http://attedragon.tumblr.com/my%20gifs. I go by attedragon on Tumbler

I made the GIF  intro on this post this morning; screen grabs/frames taken from the movie Forbidden Plant. That movie is my all time most favorite B Science Fiction movie ever! A Classic! This movie inspired George Lucus to create Star Wars! One of the first feature length all color sci fi movie of the time, astounding sound effects and sp fx….again… for the time. I love this movie….

I entered 3 GIFs in the Tate Gallery (London) call for entries this past January/Feburary. The opening was in Feb. They gave you 5, 1840’s paintings from the Tate Gallery collection for artists to make their GIFs.

MothMan is one of the most family friendly, most amusing festival anywhere. I mean, there is a MothMan Beauty Pageant the Friday night before the festival! And all those lovely ladies and young ladies donned their jeans,sweatshirts and shinny MothMan contestant pins 20120916_113408 to come out and share those fabulous smiles on us venders who where trying to stay dry in the pouring rain Saturday! There was a good crowd that braved all that wetness to say hello as well, and all of us who where vending and trying to keep dry truly appreciated your visit. Sunday was a different day entirely….
