Well, well, well, it looks like Fargo has been tangled up in that world wide web again, but now for the sake of art and burlesque...combined. I finally got all of the webwork done on the Fargo branch page, and I must say I'm pretty proud of it. Though I'm not the most computer savvy person on the block. The first session is going to be in conjunction with my first solo art show, and I am also the first featured model. Mainly because then I don't have to pay myself and then I can spend more on advertising. Plus I do have eight years of figure modeling experience.
The overall theme is "Exploring New Frontiers"... and have what else but a western theme, which seems very appropriate for North Dakota. I would rather embrace my inner cowgirl than raise tribute to the movie "Fargo".. I love the Coen Brothers but I think Fargo misrepresents us North Dakotans.. that's my opinion. Please keep in mind that this is coming from the girl that wouldn't understand why people were more impressed with a wood chip sculpture of Marge (from Fargo the movie) than a fully restored art deco theatre complete with a restored Wurlitzer Organ at the Fargo Theatre. Plus the said theme also works with the art on the walls, all of which is very whimsical and serves as a bit of an ode to the prairie.
Yeah September is going to be a big month. Bad Weather Burlesque is going to do a final Cruise Night Special on September 1, My art opening is September 8, we have a North Dakota themed show on September 9, and then Dr. Sketchy's September 25.. I figure I have most of October to breathe.. and maybe sleep a bit.
I have also been fortunate enough to have some good friends help me out with some of the graphic design elements...yeah this is a huuuuuge thank you to Raul Gomez and Jay Miller.. and the High Plains Reader in general... They have been very supportive of all of the burlesque endeavors.
