Tokyo Solo 1 – Closed

April 21, 2018 – My first solo gallery show is coming up in a few weeks. The opening party will be on Saturday, May 5, starting at 6:30. I will be there all week until the following Saturday, the 12th, for the closing party. All nineteen pieces are new (a few are only relatively new) ballpoint pen drawings. I made the frames as well, which took nearly as long to assemble as creating the art. This is going to be fun; looking forward to it! •


In Remembrance of a Memory

December 20, 2017 – We were in a cubby of a town in an elevator on September 22, 2009. I was flattened against the wall, and she found that hilarious. I might have screamed during her hilarity fest, but it is not important now. All that is important at this point is getting this thing posted •


INKTOBER 2017

November 3, 2017 – The challenge of #INKTOBER2017 was to complete one drawing using ink a day for the month of October. I used a ballpoint pen. At four to six hours for each piece, it was indeed a challenge. Completed, though, and I loved the experience •




Virtually Touching

September 14, 2017 – I often like to put my physical images through digital filters. Just as often, that which I can touch has more value for me. The pen or pencil to paper is immediate, whereas anything done through the computer feels impossibly distant. Regardless, it’s fun •


Trees Don’t Fall

July 18, 2017 – Just finished this one. I started it a few years ago (maybe as many as five, or more), but started working on it again about a month ago. Overall it didn’t take too long to complete, however •

[UPDATE: October 11, 2017 – I just decided this needs more work, so I will do that]



Modified Easy

June 26, 2017 – How easy should it be? To toil over self expression seems to miss the point, though some effort above the standard can optimize output. This was easy, is my point. Regardless, the image pleases me •




Sparth Inspired

May 29, 2017 – Not sure if I’m going to flesh this out any further, but I like it so far. Knocked this out in just a few hours, which for me is unusual with this type of art. For example, I’ve been working on one piece that’s about 80% finished for nearly ten years. The trick here was to work very small, i.e., reduce the size of the window 12.5% in Photoshop, then use the brush tool to paint until a shape I liked appeared •
