I’ve been hanging all my projects from silkscreening this semester on the wall in my room. Which! I know is pretty pretentious. But when I think of how at the beginning of the semester I couldn’t even get a simple outline of a cat to print and I’d never used Photoshop before in my life and putting emulsion on screens made no sense to me and I spent forever wandering around the art building because I didn’t know where anything was, I feel like a ~success~, ya know?
[On a slightly related note, art crits are such a weird thing to me… Like, I get the point of them, but in a creative writing workshop you’re like, “Here’s a draft,” and everyone else is like, “Here’s how you can make it better going forward.” For an art crit, you’re already finished. You’re like, “Here’s the thing,” and everyone else is like, “Here’s what’s kind of shitty about it.”]
