art every day month : days six-nine : explorer manifesto

i-am-an-explorer-web

Fully powered and back online! I've never been so in awe of artificial light coming from our very own fixtures. I wept openly. Thank you, thank you, thank yooooouuuuuu everyone for helping to keep me mentally afloat. That crazier than crazy week also coincided with the close of our first year in New Jersey (my "Jerseyversary", as one of my fellow local artists put it) and I couldn't think of a more appropriate way to end it -- in total chaos. Truly, it has been one of the nuttiest years of our lives. I whipped up this Explorer Manifesto to commemorate the ride -- if it's all going to keep on going this way, I might as well own the journey. My husband immediately requested (and got) the first print of this one ;)

A few of the doodle originals I created while in hotel exile are now in the shop, including Another One Goes in the..., Lapsus Memoriae, Non Compos Mentis and House Troll.

List it Tuesday will start right next week right where we left off (we'll double up the entries so you can enter your movie line link again.) Suggested topic for next Tuesday: ideas for list topics! (I need them.)

Andria said...

Love this piece, Aimee! I hope things "normalize"...whatever that means! :-)

Jessica Sporn said...

So glad you're back to normal - whatever that is. It's funny - I'm feeling more shook up now than I did a week ago. Some sort of weird post hurricane aftershock I guess. A glass of wine always helps.

Bella Sinclair said...

You OWN it, baby. You own it good! What a great way to commemorate a rockin' roll kinda year. And YAY for electricity! YAY!!!!!

Gina Sismilich said...

Love your piece - the writing is cool and I like what you have to say!! Good attitude about a bad situation. Glad you are all ok-happy PPF!

Pointy Pix said...

I love this - it would be perfectly appropriate hanging in my new studio in our new house in Scotland whenever we get it and wherever it turns out to be! I totally forgot you would be caught up in the madness of Sandy! Glad to hear normality has been resumed to the extent of electricity at any rate!
