Mixing Money and Blood

From a series of images that relate to some family history:

My great grandfather’s sister Emily was told she had to marry her brother’s business partner—who otherwise could not be trusted.

Did I mention the man lived in Australia?

Some of my images are cut out of a material called Neoprene that is gooey in a good way. Here’s where I get it.

A new discovery for me is S  IMG_7472erge Bloch: A French illustrator with that certain something. Reminds me of a lot of people, but is his own person.

Mama and baby caught up in the web of life

I’m no sucker. I didn’t even have to buy that Japanese book about the “Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.” All I had to do was to inhale the first few paragraphs in a bookstore and the magic had already begun. A tsunami of putting things away instead of letting them lie about took over my life. Perhaps because the author had said this would be magical it was. I began to think about the value of less everywhere else. How a good story has distinct edges. How I make pictures by cutting out what shouldn’t be there. How writing gets better when you subtract words wherever possible. “Elegance is refusal,” as Coco Chanel once said.
