My good friend Lizzy created an animation recently and used the song “Mickey Mantle” from my brother’s demo CD.
Check it out!

Wake is the title of the body of work that I’ve recently wrapped up into the first half of what will be a two-chapter story.
I recently received the InFocus grant to help complete the rest of the work; you can read the running statement for the project at their website.
I decided to make some pictures of the first copy of the “book.” The work is actually encased in a handmade box that reads like a book, as shown below.
Please don’t mind the uneven lighting coming from my window.
For now, I plan on making between 5 and 10 copies and circulating them like a library would, with a due date of two or three weeks or so.
The book consists of 45 spreads, roughly 85 pages, split fairly evenly between text and image; it takes some time to finish.
Unfortunately, this personal experience of the book will be available to only Chicagoans for now.
However, I’ve created a low resolution PDF version of the book for the non-Chicagoans that are interested in reading it.
