I have completed three handmade books of which are blank, so you can fill them with whatever you want. They are for sale on my etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/JohannaFalzone

I’m really proud of these books, I think they are my best work yet in terms of craft and I am so happy to be able to sell them and finally allow other s to enjoy handmade books. I’ve had a lot of requests to start making them for people to buy, so here they are! There will be more to come!

I have installed my miniature in S7 of the art building titled: Tea Time With Marie Antoinette, also I had my Bell Jar altered book installed at the counseling center last week.

In other news tonight is the Motel Installation opening, BFA is getting closer, I finished printing promotional stuff and re-doing all of my bio, statement, CV and designing a new layout for those items. This weekend most likely tomorrow I will be installing some paintings/drawings in The Closet which will be for sale.

Today has been really lazy, cleaning out a bunch of stuff, in fact I’m still in pajamas.

Not much here, I know, but I have a ton of stuff going on and I’m trying to finish 3 paintings in one weeks time, so therefore not a lot of pictures to update with because time is non-existant. OMGGGGGGGGGG!!

So I have been non-stop painting/bookmaking etc. Screenplays yup, a lot.

Anyway so this first Friday is the Downtown Peepholes, mine will be at Bon Ami Confections, so you better be there to peek inside.

So far I am currently working on two paintings and getting ready to shoot four more photos for the last four paintings that go with my latest collection for BFA. I am also working on books for installation other than the peephole which is finished, just needs to be installed. The two books I am currently constructing are for a group installation and a solo one. The group one is a leather bound book that will feature photos I purchased from an antique shop to recreate the main woman’s story, it goes along with the theme of the Muse of which this woman is. The second book is a literature based installation where I have constructed an altered book out of the Bell Jar and viewers will be able to interact with the book by pulling out poems by Plath and myself. This is the second interactive book I have made, its nice to be able to invite the viewer although I still fear sticky dirty hands touching my art.

Other projects I have been working on are figure painting and screenwriting. This is the first time I have ever written screenplays and its so much fun, I knew when I wasn’t really making the A mark in Video Art that I was a “filmmaker” rather than a “video artist” although I consider the two the same thing, but some people do not… Anyway I had a feeling taking screenwriting would open the right doors for what I wanted to do with film, so I’m glad its working out! I’ve been writing about my cyclops’ so its great to give them a greater purpose than just being still images on a page, there is now a story and dialogue for them which expands their meaning farther creating an even more meaningful narrative for them.

So I have been sick for 2 weeks now, well it will be 3 and its been awful trying to get myself to make art. Yesterday I finally got the energy to go to the gym and make a Christmas card that needed to be sent out this week before the USPS halts delivery for the holidays. Today I have spent time uploading images of my work to my official tumblr page so all can be reblogged by my followers and lurkers. I may do the same for my pintrest, not sure yet.

I will say updating the internet with my art and actually making the Christmas card has given me a boost amongst this art funk that happens every time I have a break. I have concluded that breaks are bad for me, and that after graduation I need some job that requires a lot of artistic working. Laying around in bed all day is not my ideal lifestyle.

Also I have a pile of FREE paintings I am GIVING away, PRO BONO, email me if you want to pick one out, I also have artwork for sale. All of the Doll Paintings, the Courtney Love/Kurt Cobain paintings, Katy Perry Painting, Cakes In The Ballroom painting, and Sylvia Plath paintings are all for sale. The prices vary, so if you are interested and have enough dinero, shoot me an email. They are for sale obviously because I cannot display them and should decorate the walls of people who love them, its a shame for them to sit in storage (my room). Also I have book art pieces for sale, if you buy a book arts piece they are all installations, I can give instructions on how to properly display them.

So I have officially titled this piece “Veil” because it reminds me of lace wedding veils, I think my mother would be proud considering her and our Cousin Jimmy used to make wedding dresses. I may not have the patience for sewing, but I can interpret it in my art and thats cool with me. 🙂 Anyway these are the final pictures. I walked over to the art building today to ask Russell if he would put a light up so it would shine on my piece and when I came in the light was already up, a nice pleasant surprise!

Also I am working on two new Marie Antoinette drawings today they should be up on here later tonight.
