Update: On the Edge, The Journal

I have found a great way to procrastinate on the Fashion Illustration exhibition that I'm "supposed" to be working on, due in December.

Working on my "journal" that I meant to keep during the 2014 Edge trip!
Is it still a journal if I work on it two years after the journey?
Maybe it's a memoir now.

I left you hanging in New Orleans on my last 2014 Roadtrip Recap post,
not a bad place to be, by any means.

I'm getting the pages prepped with gesso. Then I'll adhere the ephemera. Most of the maps were glued into place back in May 2014. Somehow I missed a section of Montana and Idaho (Washington is already glued in) so I'll have to make an extension page. Fun times.

I've had some good help sorting the ephemera:
What is it with cats and paper? They always plop down in the middle of it! 
Eventually, I'll get the Roadtrip Recaps rolling again, this time with the journal pages as headers. So we will all know where we are on the map. I will resume the recaps with Day 8, NOLA to Panama City, FL. Stay tuned! See it in photos over on Flickr now, if you're feeling impatient.

Greetings from I-10

I'm doing one of those "Post 5 Artworks..." challenges on Facebook [find mine here], and I thought I'd make it more complicated for myself by making blog posts with the art. Each day a different blog. [Yes, I have 5+ blogs. Ack!]

On the Edge is blog #6. Started January 2013 in support of the road trip that I took in 2014, it has become the destination for ALL my road trip stuff. Prior to 2013, my travel posts went on The Glutton's Progress.

Now that Daylight Savings is here, #myshittycommute got much brighter on the way home. Yay!
No more blinding headlights in the rearview mirror! I've expanded my use of the hashtag to include Waterlogues of my evening rush hour "delights".

Here are this week's:
I-10 x I-110
CA60 x I-5 x I-10
I-10 x I-110
I-210
different route, rare wide open road (not #myshittycommute)
