It’s been quiet around here which means a lot of working has happened.
The summer informational pamphlet for 2018 is complete and is on its way to subscribers, friends, friends of friends, and acquaintances. The Liquid Fault Line addresses strategic retreat from the shoreline in an age of rising sea levels.
What are the costs? What if you don’t want to leave your home and community?
What are the various adaptation strategies and who benefits? What will happen if we don’t plan ahead?
In related news, I’m also working on a new full-length artist book, title TBD, hopefully to be completed in time for the next CODEX fair, in February of 2019. Here’s some in-progress photos:
It’s all about disappearing islands, both real and imagined. I’m hoping to have all the images and backgrounds printed before school starts up in the fall, with the text to be printed in Sept/October.
That leaves November for fall pamphleteering activities, December for mailing and binding and assorted catching up. Reasonable? Perhaps.
I think I’m excited about it for now, and have tried to structure the book so I won’t get too sick of it along the way. There’s enough improvisation in it to keep me interested; I don’t like projects which require all of the planning to happen in advance, I get bored in the middle of production when that happens.
Wish me luck.
