After completing the final assemblage piece yesterday, I decided to finish off the year by knocking another goal off my production schedule: sending the Tarot of Bones book manuscript to an independent editor. We’ll spend the next few months passing the manuscript back and forth to polish it up so it’ll be more presentable when it comes time to print it this summer.
I’m very grateful to myself for keeping up on writing each individual card’s entry in the book as I completed its assemblage. Not only did it let me write out my thoughts on the card while it was still fresh in my mind, but it also helped me to have the manuscript essentially done by now. All I had to do was put a few finishing details into it and clean it up a bit, and it was ready to send on.
I’m taking the next couple of weeks off from Tarot of Bones concerns, as I prepare to run the third Curious Gallery here in Portland. This two-day arts festival that I run every year is the reason I wasn’t able to start the assemblages til mid-January 2015; if you’re in the area, I invite you to join us for a weekend of curiosities, presentations and art!
And Happy New Year to everyone, too!
