This is my first attempt at block printing on fabric and first attempt at gradients. I dyed some scarves a while back and finally got around to printing. Even though I currently suck at it, I find the process intriguing. #handprinted#textiles#blockprinted#handcarvedstamps
Im so freaking busy!!! Ive been grinding away every since #The BlkGrrrl BookFair. I haven’t even posted stuff about #FlashTag installation down @CAAM. But i’ll get to that laters. Here is a link to the article about me in the L.A. Weekly. You can see it here–> http://www.laweekly.com/arts/street-art-british-punk-japanese-cute-and-black-culture-all-in-one-artist-5460319. I have events scheduled for the rest of the month. Satuday, 4/18 from 12-4 pm, I’ll be part of the Zine Space at The Craft and Folk Museum on Wilshire. On April 25, 2015, I’ll be speaking on the Street Art Panel @CAAM about the #FlashTag Event & Installation. It would be great to have a big turn out for this historical event that happening.
I Hope My Art Offends You!: The Mini Pickannini Show
Hello Lovelys: Im doing a installation of my personal/private work…..Meaning my Pickanninies. I usually reserve this work for private viewing but since the producers of The Black Grrrl BookFair so graciously provided me with a safe, nurturing environment to show this work, I jumped at the chance. My pickanninies usually can only be viewed in the collectors homes. But this time you don’t have to be a rockstar or a rapper to see them. This is one of the few times that the general public will have access to see this body of work. They will be available for purchase as well.
As this year comes to a close, Im busy wrapping up this years to do list, while creating next years. Ive been gone a while but to catch you up on things, I’ve been reinventing myself and business. Its quite easy to fall into a rut when you’ve been at it as long as I have.The Shop, the home studio, the websites, the family, & clients. whew! is all that I can say.
Im separting myself from my other businesses and gearing up my mobile business. Im gonna be quite social for 2015! I have been designing my new marketing materials too. All the graphic design & branding services will be ran out of adahglenn.com. I will use this as a social media newsletter platform for trends, fairs,topics of random interests, ect. AfroPuff.biz will be more content & commerce driven.
Pardon My Mess Im gearing up for a wonderful and prosperous 2015.
Love & Light!!
