I made this print in a one day workshop with my favorite linoleum block artist, Artemio Rodriguez. This print is a self portrait - a print about a girl who is consistently obsessing about her future and dissecting her past. The title of the piece is based on a song by Missing Persons, an 80's band originating in Los Angeles. The song is called "Mental Hopskotch" and it goes like this:
"Sometimes you say you will sometimes you say you won't
you always keep me waiting waiting hesitating hey yeah
At times I think you do at times I think you don't
my mind is rollerskating, skipping, jumping rope, and fading
why must you treat me this way
ready or not I'm going away"
