If any of you guys truly know what’s going on in my life I’ve made a very big decision to stop attending art school… Don’t worry just a change in my major. I’m looking in to transferring to UWM for Stage Management come Spring semester.
However in the current semester I am taking some time off to really focus on who I am as an artist. I’m giving myself the time and energy in making the kind of art I WANT to be making. I’m building my portfolio and saving up some money for the future.
The following collection has been my on-going summer kitsch/craft/collage project. Since I’m a real life grown-up now. (yucky) I had to officially move-out of my parents house. My childhood bedroom has bed repainted and redecorated COMPLETELY to be the Verdone household’s new guest bedroom. So in the two months I stayed with my family over the summer I did a lot of cleaning and re-discovering. We also had a yard sale to cleanse ourselves of a lot of un-necessary material objects just hanging around. In the process of all this I found an old scrapbook I had barely started when I was a young tot… and with all the paper hoarding I do I quickly found a lot of sentimental and nostalgic scraps to fill an entire book with. This is a bright and colorful brief journey into the last 21 years of my life.
..and hey, I actually properly filled a “sketchbook”
