Dallas and a little press

Hey all,
I'm in Dallas teaching some workshops for Cheryl and Megan at TEN SECOND STUDIOS. While I was away my local paper did a spread on me. Check it out if you like. The reporter followed me around while I did some junking. It was a pretty fun day.
and a book review


Missoula Secrets of Rusty Things book signing Sept 14th at Liquid Planet 5-7. more info to come,

ciao,

Michael

Great paper ! It was nice to learn a bit more about your junk hunt and such !

I loved the journalist's perspective on it: "He bought a golf bag without even checking to see if the wheels turn."

The junking excursion ("junket?") and the photo of your studio were both almost exactly as I had imagined the they would be. For some reason this surprised me.

What a great article, thanks for posting this Michael.

I had a bit of a giggle when I read the bit about the golf-club cart, purchasing it solely for the brass plate, yeah... I can most definitely relate.

Oh, and I approve that you take coffee with you when you go junking! I'm not a morning person so if I'm getting early out of bed to venture into the cold frosty morning I most certainly need to partake in some coffee, it's the rules.

if i pretend to be a journalist, can i go junking with you?

the article was great by the way - i always buy stuff like that and people always say "what are you going to do with it?" shrugging is the best answer!

So I guess my having bought a 50 pound typewriter just for the metal name plate on it isn't so whacky. huh? Oh yeah - the keys...
Great article and review - I'm thinking one of your most endearing qualities is how open and available you are to the rest of us! Deb

Hey
I love the fact that I can click a button on my computer and be exposed to such wild art! I really appriected your comments on when you sit down to create. The whole process of love and hate with the object in front of you! I go thru that everytime, this battle that goes on. Thanks for sharing your thoughts made my day!
be well

Hello- just found your blog while visiting Judy's Numbers. I love the headline "makes stuff out of junk"...Looking at your art makes me wonder why I throw anything away..if we were neighbors I would feel compelled to give you my trash, I mean that in the nicest way. Keep those creativity wheels turning...
