This just in from my friend Deepanjana Danda Klein, who is curating a show
this fall. We did a show together last year, and she is very well organized
and reliable. Woodblock content? Well, I'll probably have some woodcuts in
this show!

The monkey cards arrived just fine - no offsetting. I can't imagine
what would cause that to happen other than intense heat, like what
comes from ironing. Why the PO would employ someone to iron your
monkey cards is beyond me, especially when they are always crying poor
mouse. You don't think that is what's behind the last increase in
postage, do you?

I really enjoyed the stone engraving - you clever rascal. Being a
petroglyph lover I will especially treasure that one.

I think someone mentioned that 2005 will be a rooster - is that
correct? I suppose it is time to start thinking of the next animal -

Cheers to you,

Hello---Charles, I received your monkey card & ape-man without any
"bleeding" problems---Thank you and all who have sent theirs! I've made a
little book to enjoy them all and show them to friends. Aimee Y
PS-- I'm still receiving three copies of each digest--one "old" and two
"new"...Is there something I must do to eliminate the extra copies?

Daniel Dew:
It could be important to know a couple of things before making a
recommendation: Where were your getting your BFA from and why do you want it now? Are you
planning to ever go on to an MFA, and what kind of employment might you want
to use the degree for?
It can make a lot of difference.

By the way, since I get a lot of "Dear Mr. Le" letters, I'd like to take this
moment to introduce myself as a middle aged female.

I studied for my BFA at The Art Academy of Cincinnati from 1979 - 1982.
I got an internship at a local ad agency, which they extended through
the summer. The ad agency convinced me to not go back to school, since
I already had an art job and was ahead of the game. Then I got laid
off 4 months later due to downsizing the agency. :-(
My ultimate goal in getting the BFA is to be able to teach someday. I
would love to retire in 10 years form the finance industry and teach
art/printmaking/history full time.
Also, I get tired of people judging me by the fact that I never
finished college. I have spent 17 years in the finance industry, being
involved in the start-up to general manager of a 24 million dollar
business, only to be told recently that I didn't qualify for a job due
to the fact that I did not finish college.
Now that I have the time and resources, I want to correct a mistake I
made when I was too young to know better.
And I love teaching.

Don't get me started about how our educational system is short changing
our kids by leaving art and art appreciation out of the curriculum. I
have gone head-to-head with many people who think art is worthless as a
teaching tool. It is just sad.
