101st post & I’ve been tagged to share stuff about me.

101st post

Pretty convenient I’d say, to be tagged by Gold & Silver Stars to share stuff about me. This is my 101st post! It’s a good time as any to tell you I just launched my website. Here are all my illustrations. I’d love your feedback.

Here’s the deal with getting tagged, I have to:
1. Link to the person that tagged me and post the rules on my blog.
2. Share 7 random or weird things about myself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of my post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my answers. They were steam of consciousness with a lot of childhood stuff:

1. When I was very little I was rather noisy. While staying over at my aunt and uncle’s house one day I went into the other room and got very quiet. My aunt got alarmed and ran in to check on me. I was covered from head to toe with ballpoint pen. She said to me exasperated “why did you do this Samantha?” and I replied, “you shouldn’t leave pens around where there are little children”.

2. In my first black and white photography class in college I asked my friend who was an excellent BMX biker to do some tricks so I could take photos. I spent the day shooting his dangerous, death-defying tricks like riding down long stairwells and jumping off rooftops. Later I discovered that I forgot to load film into the camera, it was super embarrassing to tell him.

3. My husband and I met when we were 24 years old. 4 years later and two weeks before our wedding, we found a photo of us in day camp at 5 years old sitting right next to each other. We didn’t remember.

4. I think David Lynch’s Dune is one of the best movies ever. I often pretend to be Sean Young and ride sand worms. My husband is the only person who’s amused.

5. Once a week when I was in elementary school my mom took me to MOMA to look at art and get a black and white cookie. To this day I love art and cookies. I think the repetitive experience of getting cookies and looking at art made me associate art and food. I did a whole series of paintings on food and women’s relationship with it. Maybe she should have taken me out for asparagus.

6. When I was little I called artichokes “orange cokes”. My parent’s were bewildered since they never gave me soda.

7. My whole life, one of my favorite things to do was to get up and draw all morning, through the day, and into the night. Still is.

Here are my tag-ies:
