Block 103: May 31, 2013

  The sun came out this morning. The birds are chirping. The heat is rising. The world keeps moving, doesn’t it? Date: May 31, 2013 Crane: 103 Days Spent on Project: 103 Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC Person I would have sent it to: Marie B., Brebeuf’s theater director. I maintain that, in each of … Continue reading

Block 102: May 30, 2013

I call this one “Adrift.” Because, you know, I feel adrift today. Date: May 29, 2013 Crane: 101 Days Spent on Project: 101 Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC Person I would have sent it to: Zach H. As I started to wade into the “theater scene” at Brebeuf, I quickly became the gay boy who … Continue reading

Block 100: May 28, 2013

  Ladies and Gentlemen: This is the 100th one! Can I just acknowledge for a second that I have 900 more to go? That this is ONLY 1/10th of the entire project? That this is a kind of milestone? Date: May 28, 2013 Crane: 100 Days Spent on Project: 100 Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC … Continue reading

Block 97: May 25, 2013

  Happy Saturday. It’s gray and raining and abnormally cold this morning. I’ve also been up since 3am. Couldn’t sleep because today is just going to be one of those days where a confrontation is inevitable.

Block 96: May 24, 2013

  Struck me this morning: I’m almost at the 100 Crane mark. That means I’m almost 1/10 of the way through the project. That means I have 9/10 more to go. Oh dear lord. I’m at the point where I can’t really see the beginning anymore, and I certainly can’t see the end. It’s a … Continue reading

Block 95: May 23, 2013

  More of the tone-on-tones today. I kinda enjoy how the blues match up almost exactly between the two fabrics. And I really enjoy the juxtaposition of the lines with the looser splotched lines. Date: May 23, 2013 Crane: 95 Days Spent on Project: 95 Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC Person I would have sent … Continue reading

Block 94: May 22, 2013

  Still on the tone-on-tone kick. I think it’ll make a difference in the long run with the final product. I’m reminding myself it’s good to surround yourself with supporting players, instead of trying to create lead roles with each encounter. Date: May 22, 2013 Crane: 94 Days Spent on Project: 94 Location: Apartment, Washington … Continue reading
