almost ready

August 22, 2007 at 7:00 am

The transparency for the seventh and last color is ready.

In the ‘morning’ (2:30 pm, when I wake up…) I will shoot the screen… and if all goes well, print it tomorrow night/today (Wednesday into Thursday).

Thursday: sort out, sign & number.
Friday: pack up some posters, head to Worcester to deliver the Worcester subscriptions.
Saturday & Sunday: back to Providence, address and prepare for mailing. Contact Providence subscribers and deliver posters around town.
Monday: mail out posters.

… there you have it.

The Shape of Content, by Ben Shahn.

Essays about art and why it might be worthwhile to strive to create anything in the world. I read this book when I was 17 or 18, and coming back to it now I found myself thinking “Oh, I’ve read this one before, I don’t need to read it again…” Then a couple of sentences into the essay: “Hey, wait a second — I don’t remember this part!” It’s really thoughtful, down-to-earth, and unpretentious, focused on art’s connection to and meaning within life. Reading it now, it is obvious that this book was about 50% of the reason why I ended up dropping out of the the University of Chicago when I was 19. (the other half? attention deficit disorder.)
