Greetings Seth,

Congratulations on your awards. Your blog is very inspirational and above all, also educational.

Thank you for mentioning The DIRECTORY, a resource and link portal to other artists.

Enjoy the weekend,

I like this 'proceedings' piece. Good idea to use it as an example for the distressed x as well. I've been enjoying your recent posts in my reader. Good to see all the pages of the book collab in sets. Thanks for going back over them!

I have a few distressed exes in my past but yours are better!

Nice link list and nice to give recognition to Egmont's art. I just learned about his blogs recently.

Proceedings is awesome and so like you. I really enjoyed it a lot. Those brass Xs are to die for.

Your post is an artist's version of Fairway and Zabars all at the same time! Great book picks-I have Creative Time and Space given to me by a dear friend and know that it can be life changing! Of course, congratulations on being a double award winner! The xxxxx are amazing, and I know first hand, since I've ordered and received mine from you.:) Hint hint to everyone reading this!! And of course, your newest artwork of "Proceedings" is another great creation- with inspiration of a sampling of what we can do with our xxxxxxs!

I have read Barbara's book and loved it. in fact was at a bookshop in the USA which was selling special editions of it at the time - awesome!

Debrina said...

Ha ha - Numinosity made me laugh there. Like to know what you'll reply with! Well, Alicia gave me a sneak preview of those X's of your Seth. What were they originally? They remind me of Meccano or the connecting bits to one of those lazy arm gadgets....
Love the colour in your "Proceedings" that shellac? (Goodness, lots of questions from me today!! Lol).

Nice to see some of my things again and Svea's rusty paper with her own cipher on it in the middle. I liked that.
Greetings to X from W. (do you remember?):)

I could spend all day here, in dog years, of course.

I have been paging down for the last half hour. I need to take nourishment now.

So much is going on here, I don't know what to say, except, I hope you had a good long snow day on Wednesday to catch up with things.


Go to the Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea and see the El Anatsui show before it leaves. said...
