dwella vs. Ella 2
Back in July, my nine-year-old friend Ella and I had a gallery show at hot*pop here in Milwaukee. It was the sequel to our first show four years ago— dwella vs. Ella: A Pretty Good Art Show. Naturally, we titled it dwella vs. Ella 2: A Pretty Good Sequel To A Pretty Good Art Show. We are nothing if not wordsmiths.
The premise for this one was to take the first 25 days of July 2012, and do one drawing each day about that day. We’d then hang our drawings side by side to see how similar our lives are. What did I learn? That Ella lives a far more interesting life than I do.
You can see all 50 drawings in a Facebook album I’ve posted here.
