The exact quote is : ” I’m going to go jump in the coffee and make some shower.” This doozy of a quote was found in a movie called Candy Jar. 2018.
I could actually be this woman in the illustration. Except, I’m a brunette. You wake up Monday morning in a complete daze, sluggish and drained. Well…Of course! Yesterday was sucked up in a project that somehow just kept getting put off. It would always be at the top of the pile but for some reason..other things took precedence. But now it’s down to the deadline date – June 1st. I can feel it looming over my shoulder with such ferocity that I can actually feel it breathing. The hair on my neck is standing attention..There’s now a continuous sweat beading on my brow. OH, WHY… OH WHY…. Did I do this to myself? Yesterday, was Sunday it was supposed to be the day of rest….Instead of nestling between my blankets I jumped out of bed at exactly 7:00 am.slamming my alarm clock into submission. For the next 5 hours I was glued to my chair …cutting out the words for both screen prints . Then I had to add more worry lines. Somehow his mustache started growing in dimension …four layers of color,,.grew into five. It was definitely adding to the visual weight of the right side. The dilemma is: Do I readjust the problems …or integrate them into the print like I planned it originally… Ummmm…. A weighty problem to think about. Soon after lunch I took myself to Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Uptown. After you print a couple of colors you look back and cringe on just one small adjustment of the paper, at the last moment …before pulling the squeegee through. That one movement has just thrust me kicking and screaming into Readjustment Land also known as the OMG WHAT DID I JUST DO??? place. I noticed that John Bolton is leaning to the far right . Strangely appropriate but not appreciated. Like the woman above who clearly has misplaced her words…” I’m going to go jump into the coffee and make some shower…”My brain is fried. So I’ve decided to treat myself to a mocha at Dogwood before I set to work again. I need to jiggle my brain cells awake so I can change the design some more before his body parts start falling off the paper….
