  1. Loved this episode!!!! Ok so Handmaids Tale. YES!!!! I agree I want to binge watch this. Week by week is killin’ me. Props to Elizabeth Moss; very well done indeed. Improv comics; what an awesome idea which brings this up for me. What do you think about improv journal pages; collaborative journal pages. I’ve done a few altered books where we work off each others elements and go back and forth for how ever long we decide. I love seeing how others interpret what I’ve put down and how the page changes through each addition. It’s kind of like it’s own language in a way. The one thing it does require is being able to let go of what you’ve put down, it may change. The last time I did this with someone, we had only one rule which was never to completely cover up what the other put down but anything else open game. It’s a process that fascinates me. I love collaborative projects. I think it takes an artist out of their comfort zone and forces them to take the path less traveled, that they might not go down on their own. On creating personal stuff over work for others. It’s always easier for me to do my own stuff most of the time. If someone asks me for something and the subject matter is something that excites me or that I can relate to. It’s alot easier for me to get excited about it and do it. Art for myself is a release, a pleasure and what I do to relax. Art for someone else is going to be work and while I may enjoy the work, my investment in them is very different. I feel I have to censor myself which is basically what it means to create for someone else, having to take myself out of it, and that for me is HARD to do. Creating is a very personal thing for me. My heart has to be in it so it’s kind of a tight rope walk. If that makes sense. Ok, thaz all I got. šŸ™‚
