As I wrote back in December, my 14' sculpture of opposed ceratopsians "Beauty and Grace" was accepted into ArtFields 2018. The gears are turning, and I now know that my piece will be hosted by The Citizen's Bank. Never having been to ArtFields or Lake City, SC, I have no firsthand knowledge about what the town or the festival are like. The location of the bank on Main Street looks promising!
As I've grown more comfortable with the video editing software I use (Adobe Premiere), I've become more efficient at making videos. Videos aren't a complete replacement for writing, but I think they provide something that writing doesn't. I've posted several more to my YouTube channel over the last month. Here they are in case you missed them.

There's a new festival coming to West Columbia in April: Kinetic Derby Day. I'm planning on participating as an artist in some form or fashion, although we have yet to work out the details. I've created a lot of new stuff since my Afterburner show at Tapp's last summer, but ideally I want to make something brand new to roll out. I've got ideas and materials, and I've started working on it. I'm not going to say what it is because that commitment would add pressure that would make it less fun. I'll just say it will be bigger than a bread basket.
My First Commission
I'm smart with money, but I'm not much of a business person. By that I mean that I just don't want to deal with being a "business." But I do need some cash flow to keep things going as the owner and sole employee of Zero Point Mechanic. So I have embarked on my first formal commission project: a life-sized javelina sculpture to go in an Arizona garden.
