Sycamore Elementary is studying Tennessee, and each year they pick a Tennessee artist to do a project about. This year they picked me for their first living, breathing, current kind of artist, and I'm delighted and honored. Christy Lott says she wanted to show the kids that real people are making a living and making art right now, here in our town. So they asked me to film a short video and demo for the kids, answering several questions as I go along.
I was just wondering how on earth I'd manage a demo while juggling an iphone as I taped myself, when my excellent sister Erin called to bring me some cupcakes. She nicely bore with me as I collected my thoughts and stopped giggling nervously and finally got going. I don't think I could have done it without her. So if you're bored and want to see a quick printing demo and hear me talk about what I do, here it is. (And my, isn't that a lovely still the video froze itself on?)
