The year 2007 had ended with a bang. Or, really, several bangs. Lots of international travel (four countries on two continents in four days -- that might well be a new record even for me). 80+ hours in the air just going places. My mother's death and the attendant first real visit to the place where I was born in quite a number of years. Meeting people I hadn't talked to in, sometimes, decades. And work is crazy as usual.
So I had hoped that early 2008 would bring a little more rest to my life. Hah. Every year I am amazed how I could have thought the previous year that my life was being hectic.
Consequently, artwork has been hectic as well. Mostly quick experimentations with concepts - stuff that could have been worked out more nicely. Could have deserved more thorough tuning. But alas, I was going for quick thrills through most of '08. It's pretty much all I had time for.
Only towards the end of the year did things slow down to the point of making some real play with art possible...
