I've been away for awhile but in my absence a lot of good things have happened! I'm always honored when people contact me to write about my work. Last summer I made a zine that collected some of my most celebrated papercuts from the last three years. I sent this zine to Fecal Face, and didn't hear anything from them for months. In late January I received a request for the zine. I was very curious how this person had found out about the zine (I'm based in Berlin at the moment and my only real press for the zine was done on facebook). I was informed that Fecal Face had blogged about the zine! That just goes to show you that things sometimes take time. I'm so honored because they not only blogged about my work, but they did a feature on the zine. Here is the link to their post: http://www.fecalface.com/SF/good-stuff/5123-cut-it-out-by-lavender-wolf
Again, I am very honored. About two weeks later my partner (I had a civil ceremony here in Berlin this past March!) told me that I had also been blogged about on Juxtapoz magazines blog! This was a great surprise. Here is the link to Juxtapoz's blog post about my work:
There are a few projects that I have on the back burner at the moment. I'm working on artist book that's a diary of sorts. I'm also writing a graphic novel that I plan to illustrate using papercuts. I will post snippets here and there. I'm definitely an artist who works in series. I prefer presenting work when projects are finished, but I feel like sharing, so new work will be coming soon.
In other news, I contacted one of my favorite models, Shaun Ross and sent him the papercut portaits that I made of him last summer. I hope he likes them. I'll keep you posted. Thank you for following my blog. I will have some new work for you all to preview next Friday.
love and gratitude,
