Hey, hey, hey! I can finally announce that I’ve been selected to be one of the 9 artists in Des Moines’ inaugural CSA (Community Supported Art) program. I am super stoked about it. It’s the first time that anyone has actually paid me to make art! (Except for that time when my creepy high school photography teacher paid me 10 bucks for a soulful self-portrait I did—but I have a feeling that was probably something else altogether…)
Anyway, I’m going to be printing out my favorite pictures from the Almost Free series to include in the CSA boxes. There are probably still shares available if you are feeling flush and want to get in on the action. It’s a great way to support local artists. You can check http://makebreak.us/products/community-supported-art-share
Thanks to Cat Rocketship and Make/Break and to the judges!

Thanks to Professor Joan Faber McAlister and the students in her urban photography class at Drake for having me come in and talk about my pictures yesterday. I had never really verbalized my intentions/motivations for my Almost Free series…I hope I didn’t ramble too much.

Dear friendly people of the internet,

I’ve made Xmas cards based on my series of Almost Free photos. If you’ve been following Almost Free and would like a home-grown-holiday-fun-card direct from the heartland, I’d be happy to send you one! Just send me a message on tumblr with your name and address and I’ll try to get one out to you.

Happy Holidays to all y’all! (Hopefully, I’ll get back to photo-taking soonish—but life is busy and complicated sometimes.)

Christine
