The next few images are from this Saturday's show at Sylvia Cross's 120 Sycamore Place Gallery in Decatur, Ga.
The music by Smoke was fabulous and the turn out was very nice. Thanks to all y'all who came out to catch my new work. And, or course, a special shout-out to Sylvia who put on a helluva show.
The mystical, magical meanderings of a 12 year-old mind....
I've been considering a new career path: going on the road with toy pianos doing children's music. Our next gig is at little Tiffany's. She's turning SIX!!
If you're the the sort of visual artist who digs LOTS of fine detail, but you'd still like the freedom of creating fat ink lines at will, the inexpensive croquill pen ( very easy to find in any art store) is for you. About the only thing that is a bit bothersome is having to dip the pen nib constantly to maintain ink flow. Primarily, I enjoy the flexiblity of the nib which allows for a huge varity of line widths. With a little patience and practice, you'll find how enjoyable it can be to just to cut loose in your sketch pad, playing with shading effects and line weight.
Congratulations, President Obama. You proved his point.
A little fun with one of my all-time favorite books. Holden Caulfield is my hero.
A U.S. Army soldier wanted my work on his arm. I created a few designs and this is the one he really liked. I got a kick out the opportunity to do something so permanent.
I recently did some caricatures at a craft fair. The weather was stunning, the cotton candy was spinning.
I chatted with Devon about this one and it's DEFINITELY a monkey-squirrel riding a giant banana....with dramatic bolts of lightening symbolizing the turmoil that endangers Post-Greenspan economics.
Seeking the wild gourd
Parting the frosted pasture
Skulking and plunging.
