Sugar Coated Advent 2012: Day Eight

Sugar Coated Advent 2012: Day Eight: Stratosphere Santa, Q. Cassetti, 2012, Trumansburg, NY, Adobe IllustratorAlex Cassetti and I saw a show at the New Museum this summer about the way people are transported into different places (cars, trains, automobiles, bikes, underwater stuff) all shown as a series of photographs which were by their curation, compelling and memorable. I was struck with the marvel of the history of how hard people need to work to explore the world undersea, and underground. I did a whole lot of research on those suits, particularly those stratosphere suits, with little creative coming out of that study, so here is a Santa, preparing for travel. Maybe not with reindeer, but to a place far away and nearby as well. There are probably going to be a few more pop ups inspired by that show in this collection of random holiday themed/ candy inspired/ kawaii inspired images.

It is December today. Not S. California or South Carolina…it is cool, with ermine clouds and tiny reminders that the sun is shining. I like it.

Plenty to do. Plenty to fool around with. Maybe a trip to Sundrees to see if they need more cards or adornments? We will see. It is only the beginning of the holiday swirl.
