a little publicity

I just got word that Gen Art Pulse did a little piece about the upcoming show and there's a little blurb about me and they even included "Finger Bone". She's not for sale in this particular show but the other pieces are similar in feeling.

Just to air a little insecure nonsense:
I'm pleased they included me in the piece but I think I'm a little self-conscious about the "Tim Burton" comparrison. I feel like my style has largely been in flux lately as I try to grow as an artist and experiment with subject matter and style. I'm pretty hard on myself when it comes to my own work even though I form attachments with everything I make. I can't help but fear being considered part of a "trend" and my work not experienced individually. I also don't want that fear to influence my creative process. I also don't want to come off as pretentious but sometimes you can't help it when talking about art. This becomes a bit of a loop.

I guess this is what people who make shit go through.

Regardless, I am thankful to be recognized and mentioned by such a great internet art resource and I'm excited about the show. Please come if you're in the area. I'll be around so be sure to say hi!

Hey Lady! Thats awesome they mentioned you in the article. Don't take what people say about your work to heart. Be happy that people are seeing your work - it happens no matter what, everyone is going to be compared to someone. Tim Burton is amazing enough & I would take that as a lovely compliment! Hey - we should do a trade?
