Grad school is taking over again.
This response worked out better than I thought it would.
I am glad you liked your birthday gift.

So, thanks for the birthday present, i had a lot of laughs.

Ok, so i chose to respond to the red rings around your three circles although the first one reminded me of a teat. It took me a while to get a good idea and then longer for good enough light to photograph it but here it is..

So, the spring semester has begun. I apologize in advance for the delayed entries that will occur.
For this response, I tried a bunch of things and none of them were all that exciting. This one had potential and could probably lead to something else more interesting. I figured I would leave that "something else" to you. After stepping away from it and coming back to it later, I thought that it really reminded me of rocks and minerals. I don't know if you ever had a similar experience during childhood of trying, with all your might, to draw your favorite rocks and failing miserably...but, after working like this, I came to the conclusion that "drawing" rocks with watercolor and acrylic could be the solution I was looking for. Can't wait to see what you do with that.

Dear Diana,

So, it took me a while to respond because I just didn't know where to start, I had so many ideas! but here is a trio. The first three I did, because I had to limit myself three and respond, but if I make a super cool one I'll update you with it.
Also, Justin laughed really super hard at this picture and I it reminded me of you and our metal band Butt Whiskers and their hit song, Pizza Road kill. Anyway, Good luck with school and Super DUPER ConGahRaths!! on your JOB!

For this one I tried to recreate the bleed shape and pattern that you got around your piece. It looks better in person. For some reason I could not for the life of me get it to scan with the correct colors. It is a bit lighter than this with more even tones. ....technology....


PS: I got the job! :)

Dear Diana

So, I've made a couple of these and have plans for more but i'll just post the first. Good ol' red square, the paper warped a bit but I promise it is a square.

It was good to see you and I'm sorry I missed you at Matt's show, but hopefully I'll see you again soon. Also, did you ever end up doing anything with that acetate thing I started? And feel free to mail me(not that you have my address) something to finish/change.

Dear Diana,

Here is a more loose response as promised. As far as holepunching I am really excited about the one I'm working on except for I don't have the pattern I used before which I really wanted to but that is o.k. I suppose.



Hmm...envelopes, eh?


So, here is my response. I had a million ideas. I decided to laboriously design and make my own envelope as inspired by your piece. Only, instead, the pattern is all on the outside. The mismatched grid on the folds was supposed to be the only part indicating what it is. Can't wait to see what you do next with that great new hole puncher of yours.

Dear Diana

So this took me longer than I hoped, I'll try to keep the next one a little more loose. So, I took a found pattern on an envelope and hole punched it. It is the ol' cross-hatch that I guess was supposed to look hand drawn and may have been at one point, but that was long ago. It reminds me of a drawing I did a while back similar to this one . Kinda like it but different. Like the same, but not.

I can't wait to see you tomorrow,
