ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

In This House, a few specs & details

Angela and I had so much fun putting our first book together, together. It was a long process, from searching for a publisher who would take us on, to trying to catch any mistakes in numerous proofings. What I really want to tell you all in this post is how extraordinarily grateful we are to the artists who became a part of our neighborhood for the project. Most of them many of you will recognize, but we hope we can introduce you to one or two you may never have heard of - and we think when you open the covers of our little book, you will be blown away by the results of their myriad interpretations of our "assignment". It's going to be a few months before the book comes back from the printer and is shipped off to everyone, so if you can't wait for a sneak peek at the work of the other members of our collective, here you go:

Tiffini Electra X
Erika Tysse
CW Slade
Alice Scott-Morris
Lesley Riley
Jen Osborn
CĂ©line Navarro
Susie LaFond
Kelly Kilmer
Jill Haddaway
Nina Bagley
