I’ve been feeling very hot and gross lately, so it’s been hard to sit down and make traditional art. Instead, I made a little newspaper coupon for Donut Wolf, a donut shop from Night In The Woods. What secrets does this shop hold? Is their coffee any good? Is there such thing as a “Donut wolf?”
Find out in Night In The Woods. When I first saw the trailer for this game I flipped. This game clicks with me so much. oh man.
I can provide a scientific rationale for everything I do in the garden: be it building raised beds out of rotting logs to encourage drainage and mycelium; putting a seaweed mulch over my gardens to organically build humus; sheet mulching with newspaper and wood chips to put the worms to work in eating up a grass plane, so I don’t have to dig; or using bricks to build an herb spiral, and thus a series of microclimates.
However, when I’m out there actually working with the materials, it doesn’t feel like science and calculations: it feels like art. It feels like organic sculpture. It feels like I am in a pottery class, but this time my clay has worms, roots, seasons, and needs. Gardening is a processual art form that never achieves completion, and that’s part of the maddening beauty of it.
