I’ve managed to keep my 100-day project afloat. My goal was to create abstract works using the torn remains of other pieces as a way to explore themes of building, destroying, and rebuilding. At first, my experiments were a little cautious and had a lot of negative space in them. However, I bought more ink and started to experiment with dripping, staining, smearing, and then letting the pages … Continue reading My 100-Day Project: How it’s Going

So, yes, the work is flowing and … Continue reading Cosmic Exploration
My current artwork is going boldly where it has never been before. It’s a mashup of crazy pop culture influences from Jim Henson and Dr. Seuss to Star Trek. Not really sure how I got onto this train, but it sure is fun. I’ve always loved sci-fi shows and books about the future, both post-apocalyptic and Utopian (which often overlap) and then there was David … Continue reading Creating New Worlds
