I have been doing so many projects! Most of them you can see on instagram but I've also been updating my website often. I started murpthMAIL back in April and I've had a new theme every week since then, you can learn more in the murpthMAIL tab. I have created over 200 pieces for murpthMAIL and over 300 pieces including earrings, stickers and digital art. Quarantine has kept me busy! I started a new job last week which has taken away a lot of my art time but it's great to have income again.
DUE TO COVID-19, I AM NOT EMPLOYED, PLEASE REACH OUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUY ANY OF MY ARTWORK AND FOR COMMISSIONS. IF YOU'D LIKE TO SUPPORT ME SO I CAN KEEP IMPROVING MY ART AND LIVE, MY VENMO IS @MURPTH
It sure has been an interesting few weeks. I've been away from most of my jobs for 3 weeks now. Unfortunately, my coworkers and I were let go from the theatre to collect unemployment but, even though I'm not working, I'm still employed at several other places. I've been doing some art projects to make some money, some digital art for a coworker, cosplay designs for a photographer and updating/revamping the website for Murphy Pavement Technology. I hope everyone is able to keep themselves occupied and safe! Remember to wash everything, not just your hands.
Happy 2020! I have been working a lot at Shakes, Logan Center, MCA and some other freelancing. 2020 has been my year for reading so far, I set a goal for 50 and I'm already at 17 (books and graphic novels). I am working on a new graphic design project called City Posters, I've been doing original designs and selling them. I plan to do more art, writing and comedy this year. I just signed up for The Improv Retreat 2020, this'll be my 4th year!
Unfortunately, my computer is no longer reading my SD card and I can't download anything from Google Drive (where I uploaded the photos on another computer) so no new updates yet. Keep up with my Instagram for more content! @MurpthArt
I just did a huge revamping of the website, I have created a more professional layout with fewer and better projects. I still have the entire website saved but since most of it is work from high school and earlier, I figured I needn't share that with everybody. I hope to continue editing and improving the site as I create more content. I always appreciate feedback so feel free to contact me! Links on home page.
Happy 2019! I have been working at so many theatres (as you can see in my 'About Me' page). I will be working at Court Theatre full time for a month for carpentry work, I'm really excited for this next step. I plan to work at even more theatres this year around the Chicagoland area. I will also be taking two comedy classes, one at iO Chicago and a Stand Up class at The Revival, both are beginning this week. I will be finishing my certificate in Interior Design this summer, I am planning to take 3 classes, one full term and two that are only half of the term.
I will be going to Lollapalooza for the first time next weekend and I'm really excited! I will be seeing a ton of different artists that I love including Logic, Lauv, Walk the Moon, Bruno Mars, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Camila Cabello, Tycho and Taylor Bennett (to name a few).
I was going to be the SM for 4.48 Psychosis with the Saltbox Theatre Collective but, because of scheduling conflicts, I will be one of the electricians instead which is quite exciting too! I'm hoping to work with this company more in the future.
I will begin a lighting internship at Chicago Shakespeare in March! I'm so very excited, I will be working on lights for The Scottish Play.
I will have some tidbits here time to time regarding my art.
