The Eisner American Museum of Advertising & Design is holding it’s “I Love The Eisner” event on February 20th, 2009 and it will be featuring the “250 Square Feet of Art” exhibit.
The description says: “250 Square Feet of Art” gathers the work of local artists who each received a square foot of plywood with which they could create a work of art.
I submitted a piece this year, it’s titled “Crayons” and it looks like this:
I believe they auction them off to help raise funds for the Eisner, though I’m still not sure if there are more than 250, and only 250 get selected, or if they all get auctioned off, or what… Yes, I’m short on the details.
Anyway, if you happen to be there, keep an eye out for my piece, and let me know if you see it there… Thanks!

Still snowing in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I will attempt to move some of the snow using my “snow flapper” but it’s electric and the long extension cord is in Maritime’s practice space in downtown Milwaukee. Also, the dentist called and canceled my appointment for today. Bummer. I still need to get to the bank, but may have to postpone that. Office Holiday Party is tonight, roads should be cleared up by then, and tomorrow shooting another interview for the documentary.
For all you people who like to freak out when it snow… now is the time to do it.
I finally feel like I am getting into a comfort zone shooting with the Nikon D40 now… The shot above was taken yesterday morning as it was freezing cold, along Highway 67 in Dousman, near the Bark River. I just dropped the kids off, and on the way to work, it looked amazing so I took a shot. Oddly enough, I took about a dozen, but the first one turned out the best.
Also, PortalWisconsin.org used it on their home page on December 5th, 2008. I liked that so much, I took a screen shot of it… :)
