Today I practiced some very basic mint math. You know, if you have four mints and you eat one…
Here are images of my newly finished scarf and bag designs intended for the amusement of teachers (and students and people who enjoy language and numbers) – and both designs were inspired by teachers. My most recent blog post on my website tells “how and why I made this” details. https://sueclancy.com/2017/02/06/art-messes-math-mistakes-and-teachers/

I’ve had the cold/flu/crud for the last week. I’m feeling better now and wanted to “do something creative”. Trouble is I still suddenly sneeze and cough so using sharp xacto knives, loaded ink brushes and glue laden papers is more hazardous and messy than usual. What to do?
Then I thought – I know several teachers who have this cold/flu/crud too. What could I make that might amuse teachers? Perhaps make them feel a wee bit better? After some further thought I grabbed my felt-tip pens and have been creating pattern designs that will end up on a scarf and or a tote bag.
Here’s a photo of my pattern design work in progress.
After I snapped the above photo I saw my math mistake. Do you see it?
I did! And fixed it. Hugs and thanks to math teachers everywhere!
Now I’ll do need to do the digital hocus pocus needed to submit my designs to the apparel company I work with in San Francisco California.
But I’ll try to get some rest first.

Practicing “narrative” additions to my “visual story” thing – and this time I illustrated a short short-poem-story-like-substance. Please wash your hands after handling (ahem, wink) this one titled:
Haste Accounting by Sue Clancy
An accountant was working in Haste
who added his numbers with paste
saying “If these sums are wrong
then I’ll sing you a song
but there’s simply no accounting for taste.”
