The response from the second posting was very sparse. Many people tore off the quotes tagged at the bottom, but not many people (except 1?) wrote filled in the blank. I am not sure what the third posting will be…the second wasn’t as ‘successful’ or insightful as the first. However, it prompted me to design a survey that would solicit more of a response from people directly.

I got over 100+ responses! I still need to figure out how to translate the answers and analyze the data collected. I think I might push this and the illustrations of the houses further for Unbound (RISD’s printed book fair in April).
Ruth and I started our collaboration! Back-and-forth memory prompted postcards. I just received her response to the first postcard I sent, today.
I made some progress on the posters describing the various directions of the Christian journey–prompted by my ISP advisor, Cyrus, I split the posters into four, one for each direction. I worked on the distance read this week and still need to decide and design/compose with more smaller text, and consider the 2 other reads (half-way, and close-up read). I am also deciding between dark-grey text on light-grey background, or light-grey text on dark-grey background. My illustration friends prefer the top row, and my GD friends suggested the bottom.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) our usual DP meeting day, is a major snow storm day in Rhode Island. Our meeting was canceled. I have other small projects I am working on, including: progress on NUA UNO (hopefully launching next week with Mel and Kah), a mini illustrated zine on the houses I’ve lived in, second meeting with DIIRI this week (fortunately the Know Your Rights workshop tomorrow is reschedule, so hopefully I can make the new day/time), Sanctuary’s new Discipleship class meeting this Wednesday morning, I have some new forms and content to work with.
I had a nice conversation over lunch with Jenice about our time at RISD, RISD Homegroup, and our current projects. She left me with the followign bible verse as a word of prayer over her this week, I can resonate a lot with it too:
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8, ESV
