My Stacks, um, Piles

Our artist friend, the ever popular Seth Apter, is having fellow artists share pictures of their stacks of art papers, artwork, etc. Due to a total lack of room for creating and storing any art, I don't have any pretty, little stacks of anything. I have piles. I can't even create a piece of physical art at the moment, because I have to figure out somewhere to store things away. I guess that's why I usually create digitally. It's all on the computer with no mess or room needed. (Unless you run out of room on your hard drive, and that's a whole other problem!) Instead of taking one picture of my piles, I made a very short video using my Flip video camera. I hope you enjoy seeing my mess! By the way, there really is some art paper, chunky books and whatever else can be considered paper in my piles. You just can't tell which is which.



If you would like to see some real paper stacks, be sure to visit Seth's blog at: http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com/

  1. Did you happen to notice that your "mess" or "stack" was color coordinated? See, you are VERY creative with papers and such!

    Nice vid. Thanks for the tour.

  2. Creative chaos!
    It would be nice to hear your voice giving commentary on your mess!
    I hope you'll be able to move into a larger space soon.
    (What ever happened with the garage idea?)

  3. A video. Now that is clever. And so is the placement of the words Mickey's Mess. Stacks or piles, it looks like the space of a hard working artist.

  14. I definitely "do it digital" when I can't deal with a mess. (Or can't find things IN the mess). Love your post.

  16. I see why you have no room for anything except these gorgeous stacks. Of course, I think I see a color scheme there, like PINK! LOVE the video.

  17. An inspired and focused artist - that's what I see - no time to file, when there's reason to create! Bravo!
