Maybe it's "credit" more than "attention" that I'm uncomfortable with? I have a friend who wants to submit our Zombie Bunny project to Somerset Studios next Easter and the thought of my name in print makes me squirm. I've been avoiding putting anything in my eportfolio at school because that will be my name AND my work out there on the web for anyone and everyone to see. It just creeps me out, and it makes me feel like "Who the fuck are you to put your stuff out there like you're somebody? You're just a chick sitting on the couch animating fruit for idiotic cartoons." Harsh, right? We say meaner things to ourselves than we ever would to anyone else. See how I'm babbling to avoid saying what I'm here to say? I'm super squirmy about this!
This is Suzi's book. By now, you guys all know that Suzi and I are good friends. She moved here to be close to me and Kelly, we hang out and drink a lot of coffee together. We paint together. Her book is really great. Amazingly great. It comes with a DVD, and shows all the steps and stages of making a mixed-media girl, Suzi Blu style. I LOVE it. But I've avoided promoting it (which is silly) because....
I didn't want to tell you about this! How sill am I? It's my painting in Suzi's book.
So, the book is AWESOME, and you can get it at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or from the amazing Suzi herself! Now I have to be done talking about it, I feel a little sick. Ridiculous, I know.
