Catching Up:

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Been awful busy. I'm battling with the logistics of building a structure that is larger than the space I am allotted to build it in... It has led to the altogether destruction of open room in my studio. Floorspace is coveted. However, my toil is not fruitless. The day before this post I finished seven small pieces to screw onto the truck plus a serving tray which is yet undocumented.

This is my studio through the serving window of part of the ice cream truck which has had to remain on the outside of my space as a forth wall.

Starting to fix the small works to the exterior with screws mostly. The screws will have to be painted in some cases to prevent them from being annoying.

These things.

This is most of the pieces I have done before any of them were fixed to the truck. I still need more. The wall here is loosely tacked together with 2x4's in key places. When it goes up in the gallery it will be reinforced but right now it has to be lightweight so I can move it to get into my studio.

Painting the other side of the cab. There is about a foot of open space to work in back there.

This is a rough look at the dimensionality of the truck before the wall had been tacked together. Right about here is when I started to get really excited.

I still have a lot of work to do and about six to seven days to do it in which is not a lot of time when you're taking 18 credits and are behind in more than one class... But I'm sure it will turn out and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have.
