I am spending the entire month of July 2014 in Portland, Oregon doing a self-directed artist residency.
I will be committing to at least 40 hours of art-related work each week. Included will be full-time studio work furthering my work in pen-and-ink, watercolor, acrylic, and possibly other media; printing out higher-quality versions of zines previously only photocopied and stapled; getting t-shirts made; performing Eagle Scout: a One-Man Play, and possibly co-directing a short film; and approaching local galleries about showing my work.
I intend to create a full proposal and apply for a micro-grant at the Durango Arts Center to cover a portion of the costs.
This is a very exciting thing for me and I hope it expands my creative boundaries and opens up doors for new opportunities.
I am doing a one-man performance of "Eagle Scout: a One Man play" at Animas Trading Co. in downtown Durango. This is a tragicomic soliloquoy, written and performed by myself, wherein I dress up in my full Boy Scout uniform and experience a vast array of emotions while listening to an old mix tape. It will make you laugh, but you may even weep like a child.
