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 •





Ball of Ravel

May 9, 2017 – I often wonder how much it will take to get my work noticed. Although art isn’t – or shouldn’t be – about recognition of the artist, it is intended to be recognized by someone other than the artist. That may not be true for everyone, as some artists do fine by simply creating for themselves, but if art is to communicate anything, it needs an audience. I’m creating art everyday. I’m not posting it everyday, or trying to promote it as often, but there is some effort there. This is what I’m wondering – how much is required in order to find that tipping point. It may be just a matter of time and space •
