Been sketching again – I haven’t been much for quite a while, and it’s always nice to knock the dust off and see what comes out.
I was playing with the camcorder function on my cell phone this afternoon, and decided to shoot a quick video of me doodling. And then, what the heck, I figured I’d upload it to YouTube, just to see how all of this nonsense works…
Over at John K’s blog (of “Ren & Stimpy” fame), he’s lately been taking a look at how Jack Kirby drew certain things. Here’s some links:
Well, that was rough. It was a long, difficult weekend, and I left Silverton without anything to show for my time other than a sore back and a lot of questions.
I’m sitting in a hotel in Salem after an unbelievably long day. This weekend is the Silverton Fine Arts Festival, and I’ll be exhibiting at that. If you don’t have anything to do this weekend, why not drive on down and check things out? I’m friendlier than I look, and you really should get out of the house this weekend.
“As Long As I Forget To Die, I’m Fortunate,” 18″ x 24″, mixed media print, 2010. Edition variable, print #2 of an edition of 2.
Here’s a golden oldie: “Kurt Cobain,” 11″ x 14″, acrylics, 1995.
“Untitled (as yet),” 9″ x 12″, hand-colored woodcut, 2010.
Things have been pretty hectic for the last couple of weeks – impending show pressure, family visiting from out of the country – you know, the usual batch of stuff. But I have been working steadily on some woodcuts this summer. It’s been a welcome change of pace from etching (which is pretty much the only thing I had been working on for the last year or so); it helps to switch gears every now and then, and keeps me from falling too badly into an artistic rut.
