New Correspondences & Weekend Scheduling

Spent a good part of today hunting down Magnum P.I. pictures for use in the Newman correspondences... man I found some really good ones. I think the next step is going to be finding as many Hawaiian shirt patterns as I can to use in tandem with the pictures. For the copy portion of these correspondences I’m gonna use unsolved crime articles from the web, just copying them word for work like I’ve been doing with different Barker correspondences. These things are gonna look really cool. I am also getting two rubberstamps made up as well — Thomas Sullivan Magnum III Fan Club & Jonathan Quayle Higgins III Fan Club

For the Kutzbach correspondences I’m gonna do the stick of bubble gum series. I have 15 pink foam rubber bases to build the work on. Each stick will have a different flavor of gum printed on one side and something (probably Bazooka Joe based) on the other. Each stick will then be wrapped in foil just like a real stick of gum. Postage will go on this portion. It’ll be much nicer looking than an envelope.

This weekend should be a busy one. I want to try and get at least 20 Newman correspondences under-way as well as all 15 Kutzbach. I need to wrap up all current Barker and Zimmerman correspondences and get them prep’d for mailing (scan-label-file). Also, I want to get at least 5 sets of general correspondences ready for the group. I need to look into buying myself an inexpensive B/W photocopier for the house — something similar to Sherrill’s.

Once I can build up a big enough set of correspondences (at least 2 months worth) I can get back to work on the Fluoride oil paintings and prep work for the 100 Small Works: Hot, Young and Eager on 25¢ a Day set. I’ve already gotten the images I want to dissect into the 1/8” portions. I’m using the images I enlarged for a set of Naked Lady playing cards I borrowed from Barker. As soon as I finish with these works I’ll probably turn the original playing cards into a new set of 52 +/- correspondences for Barker. I told him I’d return the cards back to him, just never told him how. I’m sure he’ll dig that.

The other thing that I’m going to have to consider scheduling is the final phase of work for the website. Linton said the client has finally finished writing the content. So we should be ready to finish this website up in the next few weeks. I also need to update Lintons website. I figure I’ll just do all this at the same time, that way I can keep all that FLASH thought and method in my head. Was updating the other day to add temporary frontside links since the main site is still under construction and I had the damndest time remembering all my hot keys. I’m using too many applications everyday for me to remember all of FLASH’s little bits.
