I finally finished my Cheshire Cat piece for the exhibition “Words to Images” at the Newark Arts Alliance in Newark, Delaware! It’s been up all month, but I forgot to post pictures here! Click through the pictures for captions. Sorry for the lack of good pictures; I’m in the middle of moving, so I wasn’t able to upload everything yet! I’ll add more pictures soon. Please do not remove this comment. This piece is by me, Grant Shepherd, Summer 2014.

The eraser on top is the Paper Mate Union Eraser.
I thought it wouldn’t work much, but… It erases ink.
And NOT JUST ballpoint pen ink, India Ink too.
If you make a mistake, this eraser can erase the whole thing and leave no trace AT ALL, although you do need to erase quite vigorously.
It’s only about 1-2 dollars.
The eraser pencil on the bottom is just that. It is an eraser that you can SHARPEN like a regular pencil. The brush on top is so that you don’t smear your art when you try to push off eraser crumbs. You sweep them off with the brush.
Even if you’re not an artist, signal boost please?
It’s a very cheap way to get around life.

Do Andy Goldsworthy’s beautiful ice and snow sculptures give you chills?
So much respect for his work. Trying to recreate any of this is enough to make you mad.
Meanwhile all I can do with ice is fall on my ass
I’ve always thought his work was just beyond words
