A tribute to Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I have been spending my summer creating quilled drawings. For those of you unfamiliar quilling is the Victorian craft of creating picture and decorations with thin strips of coiled paper. This summer I have been bringing this teqnuqie into the 21st century by starting my work in the computer; then I print, cut out, quill and photograph, finally I bring it back into the computer for some finishing touches.

I love Rant with all of my heart and have read it so many times I have lost count. There was so much inspiration I could have tapped into when creating this piece. I considered the tooth fairy and santa clause, that line of thinking lead me to make a totally different work. However I couldn’t pass up the chance to create a piece depicting the the moment of time travel.

I can’t figure out how to up load the poster to this post, so here is a link to my blog.
