1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Thrift store leather pants to reversable underbust corset. on: December 08, 2008 07:19:28 AM
The placement of the print was half intentional and half not. When I dyed the leather, it was part of a class project so I was experimenting with different shibori techniques for each piece...

damn, that's dyed leather?! ...sorry I jumped through from your posting under the corset tute so completely missed your full description. Well then mad props and I love it even more  Cheesy

I read your title and thought 'woo hoo - leather corset' but I have to say I actually find the print side really striking. On the third photo the lines in the pattern on the front echo/exaggerate the curve of the corset - no idea if this was purposely placed or just serendipidy but it's a great effect nonetheless.

As to the boob issue, believe me, they are looking mighty fine from here  Tongue

Wow on the fangs, would never have guessed that was a diy effort - look really professional, great work!

Wow, talk about conflicted. While the composition, colour and stitching is really good,

Damnit, no wonder he feels 'behind' - that is a fab surprise, very nicely done.

Is that a new light over the mirror, or have you modified the old one? I always wanted a hollywood style row of bulbs like that!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Ram w/Gas Mask Stencil *first post!* on: August 22, 2008 12:52:28 PM
That is freakin awesome - thought it already looked good drawn out in black for stencil cutting but the white on black is really effective and the design is just kick ass (is that yours?)

All of the FDS bands are going to camp in the same area and my boyfriend wanted a flag to put over the area for whatever reason...

If it's a big festival then a flag is blooming useful to remember where your tent is, especially if you have been imbibing the product of the grain or the grape!!

That is a very beautiful piece that I do believe could be presented in a gallery/art context.

My advice should you not get the place in the society (and if you still wish to pursue that line) is to apply to display and/or sell in galleries. The best way to prove your work is 'art' is to have it accepted within the market as such.

I don't know your background wrt displaying or selling your work but from their perspective I would doubt that they would accept ANY artist who did not have some gallery and/or show/prize/festival experience. Sorry if that sounds as if I am trying to rain on your parade, it's actually that I agree that more 'artisans' should be represented in the art world and I would hate to see you give up on that goal by 'falling at the first hurdle'.

Good luck.

Oh, like a thousand thumbs up for the change of medium/size. While I do lurve your original jewelry pieces - I would hesitate to buy one for myself as I am rather amply endowed and I really don't think I could work out a way of wearing either a brooch or necklace without drawing undue attention to that area. Not that I hate my boobs but it can cause embarassment when someone admiring jewelry suddenly realises they're staring at your chest...

...hmm, possibly TMI there! What I was trying to say is that I think this translates fantastically well into an art piece and widens your market sales wise (I'm imagining a commissioned wedding present with a matching/complimentary male silhouette, details on both being specific to the couple...)

No no no, they're Camels!! Duh

I freaking love these, I want one NOW

(well done on creating them, btw - getting a bit carried away with how much I like them and forgetting the critique bit)
