ACEO 2 - Never A Good Sign by ursulav ACEO 2 - Never A Good Sign by ursulav
So I've been fooling with these ACEOs -- little cards by artists, 2.5 x 3.5 -- and I kinda wanted to do a project with a set of cards that included phrases taken from my life, blog, etc. Kind of like thoroughly random journaling devoid of context. (I cannot shake the feeling that my old art professor would have approved, but I'm going ahead with it anyway.)

So, when my boyfriend was playing Dead Space recently, I heard myself utter the phrase you see before you, and it struck me for some reason, it is.

The jar is a modified version of one I did in a long ago painting, printed, cut out on heavy illo board to give it a 3-D kind of effect, and worked over with colored pencil and pen.

And seriously, IS it ever a good sign? Really?

Original is for sale, wee little limited edition prints will be available at some point.

I can't think of a single situation in which such a sight would cheer me up, no.

That oddly reminds me of the time me and some friends were going through my campus's Science building and met a WALL of jarred dead animals... :giggle:

oh god. This reminds me of something I saw on a forum.

"If I was a woman, I would want to get pregnant. But not keep the baby. At the 3'rd or 4'th month of pregnancy, I'd get an abortion, keep the dead fetus, and put it in a jar of formeldahyde. I'd repeat this process again and again til I had so many jars of fetuses that I could cover all the walls of a small closet with them. Then, I would get pregnant again but keep the baby. If that kid acted up, I would use that closet as a time-out room for them to sit in as a reminder of how easily I could have aborted their asses."
