do you know this beautiful girl? this is irritable's alter-ego, the author of the blog, in a self-portrait. geez, it's hard not to look so serious when you are staring at yourself in the mirror for hours and trying to adjust your glasses enough so you can alternately see up close and far away. i really am happier than i look...and happy you came to visit the blog.

SKETCHBOOKS. why are they called sketchbooks when there is so much more that goes in them than sketches? here are some pages from my book for the opus visual studies module. no stitching samples in it, because this wasn't a stitching module. lots of glue and paper and paint and journaling of ideas and concepts. so now who thinks that sketchbooks are only for people who can draw?
by the way, i do highly recommend learning to draw. i just began learning how to draw a few years ago and it has made a BIG difference in many parts of my life.

my metamorphosis project for the opus visual studies module is complete. this is different from any work i have ever done before. because it is a kinetic piece, i am not sure the photos do it justice, but here it is anyway. each circle spins on a fishing swivel and each half of each figure within the circle spins on a swivel. it's a pretty personal bit of work. but i will tell you that the female figures represent me and the circles represent the big black hole that some of us occasionally fall into.
