Day 8 – May 13th – Ice Cream Pants

Ice Cream Pants

Pen, Watercolor, Collage on Paper

There is an amazing ice cream place in Denver that serves dairy free ice cream for the lactose handicapped. Sweet Action. It has changed my life.  Although yesterday I was really full before going there, and I still managed to eat an entire waffle cone … and also finish off Kyler’s. It was one of those moments when you’re so full, but you can’t stop until its gone because the thought of wasting it is too much to bear.

Result: I had to leave an art opening to go home and put sweatpants on.

UPDATE By Stephanie Atencio:

Steph: “When I sat down to work on this project, I kept thinking that you ate too much ice cream. I wanted to play off of your theme: EXCESS! I thought, there’s nothing that explains excess like the royal wedding!”

  • About the Project

    I have been influenced by the "100 day challenge", or the "100 days of summer" that creative people continually participate in. In such a project, an artist, photographer, videographer, writer, etc. will create one thing everyday for 100 days in a row. This summer, I have decided to launch my own creative challenge that draws from this premise. I have sent out requests for addresses of all the people who are important to my life in one way or another. Instead of choosing an arbitrary number, such as 100, I have decided to make something creative everyday for as many days as there are addresses of people who have influenced my life, and in turn, influenced my art. Each day I will make something new and different and, at random, pull one of these names from a box. The item for the day will be mailed to that person. If they choose to participate in this collaborative project, I ask that they change, alter, add to, or respond to the item I have sent in any way they like. Each day I will photograph and post the item to be mailed out. When I receive them back, I will update that day’s post with a photo of the finished collaborative piece. The thumbnail for posts that have been updated will show a red triangle in the top right corner.
