I’ve been busy with banners lately, but I just got the latest round done and so I have a little time to rest my sewing muscles and update this here blog. Here’s what I’ve been working on:
Oh, how I love this banner! It was commissioned by the Gay Ole Opry, Brooklyn’s premier queer country music extravaganza. For those of you in the Brooklyn area, consider checking out their upcoming event on October 14 at Southpaw.
“Yes and” is a principle of improv comedy which basically boils down to accepting what your fellow actors contribute to a scene and building upon their contributions to make the scene more interesting. It’s really the only hard and fast rule of improv and a principle that I try to keep in mind during any collaborative endeavor. It encourages spontaneity and collaboration and almost always results in something more interesting and fun. It’s at the heart of what we’re trying to do at Artistic License, an organization my sweetheart and I started to foster creative collaboration in and beyond Knoxville. I made this banner for a friend I did improv with in college and who also happens to be the funniest person I know.
