Shakespeare's Birds I - finito!
Two Houses/One Landscape - check!
The starling project continues. This week the fallen bird was scanned and 3D printed. I believe my next step is making a mold so multiple copies can be made.

Long story short...the grad students are funding the trip to NYC through a CSA project. All of the deets are below. My portion has turned into what I like to call "Truck Stop Art" and I'm pretty happy about it. Here is a glimpse of the little dudes in-progress...
Dear Art Lovers and Community at large,
This fall the TCU Master of Fine Arts candidates are making works of art to sell in “Shares” in a “Community Supported Art (CSA)”, a riff on Community Supported Agriculture (which supports small local farms). The original concept creates a symbiotic relationship between consumer and producer that encourages quality product and local support for small business. Our take on this project has similar goals in introducing the artwork of local artists to the public. Through this CSA, a total of 20 shares are available for purchase, each share will include four unique and original works of art.
The money generated from this project will help fund the MFA students educational trip to New York city, led by TCU School of Art professors Cam Schoepp and Adam Fung, in January 2015.
We invite you to participate in this project by purchasing a share (or double share if you want to receive 8 works of art, all 7 of the MFA students and selection from one of the three TCU, School of Art, Assistant Professors participating, see list below).
The price for a share is $300 (4 works of art) and $600 for a double share (8 works of art). To purchase a share pay via paypal “gift” (pay to email “firstname.lastname@example.org” ) or check made out to our managing Professor, Adam Fung. Paypal is our preferred method of payment.

December 11, 2014 from 7:30pm-9pm, a Release Party will be held at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts. This lively event will be the first time shareholders get to see their purchased share and pick up their share.
