I’ve been awfully busy
lately and I apologize that I
haven’t had more time to
devote to this magazine.In a perfect world rent,food, and clothing wouldbe free; sadly economicreality demands that I earnenough to pay for theseexpenses. What continuesto amaze me is that I amable to do it through myart and through endeavorsrelated to it. In the past
few months I’ve
completed two new booksand collaborated on athird. I also built an origami sculpture for an advertisement.
When I started writing this month’s issue I was still in my old studio. I am now in a first floor
studio with more space and direct access to the street. This makes it much easier to visit, and Ihave open studio hours on Sundays from noon unti
l 4 pm. If you’re in Rhode Island and wouldlike to visit, please come by. If Sunday doesn’t work for you, please call before coming. I’msure I’ll be around.
Origami Bonsai continues to grow in popularity. You may not have noticed, but my OrigamiBonsai related documents on Scribd have been read more than a half million times! I hope youenjoy this issue.Sincerely,Benjamin John Coleman
