things that people
and cherished. they
here we have two of my favorite things: music and cloth. both created, or to be re-created, from salvage. in the background is my latest acquisition, the troubadour, talked about here. in the foreground is one of my favorite pair of work jeans. carpenters, complete with the extra little side pockets and hammer loop. blown out knee with a minor repair already chanted in. chewed to salem and back heel cuz i love to were my jeans a few inches longer than my legs can manage. one of the legs is ripped several inches up along one side where i stepped on the trailing fragments of hem and continued to try to walk.
if you've been following my blog for some time, you'll remember i've already done a pair of skull pants. now it is time for something different. new. at first blush, i'm thinking something japanese. oni masks; foo lions; noh theatre; hannya masks...that sort of vibe. so, over the next few days, i'll be sketching some ideas while needle chanting in some stabilizing scraps and preparing the jeans for what is to come!
