Untruth

Remember when I said that I was done with Polaroids for a while?  It turns out that was an untruth.  (Photo cred to the one on the left goes to Jake.)

Due to Magicube troubles, I think it might be time to take some pictures outside in the bright bright sunshine.

In other news: I’ve been playing with old cameras a lot lately, so I’ll have lots of things to post soon.  I’ve also realized that I haven’t finished anything lately.  I guess I’m still learning how to be a grownup artist that doesn’t go to school.  And today I just started what will hopefully be a series of embroideries (if there is a question mark floating over your head, that is completely justified.  But, trust in trusting).

Big Shots. Or, I am still not exactly proficient at taking Polaroids.

The other night I went mildly Polaroid-crazy, with (as you can undoubtedly see) mixed results.  I’m actually really happy with all of them, mistakes included.  I’m just bummed on the very last one, because I had had a beer and accidentally abandoned it to develop all night.  Oops.  Lesson learned.

Also, JACK STOP BEING SO GROUCHY.

New project! Polaroid Big Shot

Oh my goodness.

I mentioned to Jake recently that I wanted to find a Polaroid camera, and he came home from Bookman’s today with (ta-da!) this guy.  I did some internet research, and learned cool things about how Andy Warhol fondly used it (there is a current exhibition of his Big Shot Polaroids at Duke University which you can see here) and that it is beloved by Polaroid enthusiasts for its “eccentricity.”  I found film and MagiCubes for it on Ebay, so i’m crossing my fingers that it’ll all come together and I can make a project of it.

Wheeee!  THANKS, JAKE.
