But the day came yesterday.
I volunteered to work with other faculty on the East Side Studio Tour. Diane and Jen did a fabulous job on the installation of the work. I brought a performance piece based on the wandering pencil exercise I do in class. I asked visitors to scribble on a sheet of paper and I made a character out of their scribble. If they wanted to buy the scribble character they could for $5, thus I might recover cost of materials. I sold this one to Chris who works for the IRS.
India Ink is traditionally a carbon black ink mixed with gum and resin, molded into sticks. The name 'India Ink' is thought to be a misnomer which originated in Europe when this ink, actually from China, was imported via the Indies.
