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.

Pasticcio 4 is here!

Pasticcio Quartz 4 is hot off the press! We've upped the ante, with a smashing selection of work from new artists (and a few established faves) stretching the walls of our print gallery, a complementary bookshelf brimming over with self-published and handmade volumes to surprise and delight, and some enigmatic words defined. Guest contributors share suggestions, thoughts, and vision. Take a leap into blog land with Lisa Hoffman, consider the demise of the iconic Polaroid with Wally Bock, and attend a summertime chalk art extravaganza with Corina Gerety. Mary Beth Shaw explains why certain images bear repeating, we have a convo with Lou Robinson - art.and.ghosts, and you can digest it all over a slice of delectable Rose Petal Pie. If you're already a Pasticcio fan, issue 4 is indispensable. And if you've just heard about it, you're in for a delicious visual treat. Its pages are filled with art, quotes, and tidbits from all these fascinating artists and writers, and dozens more:
