Well, Today felt like a good day to write!

Hello there,

I know it has been quite some time since my last post but I wanted to announce that I have started a blog that went live on April 1st, The blog is called 365days1year. It is a blog about my everyday challenge of keeping myself in the right mental state to allow myself to draw regularly. With every day I require myself to create something, which can range from a drawing in the sand to a finished watercolor. Either way by midnight of that day there must be a post for everyone to see and read. So far, so good. I am onto day twenty-seven and going strong still. It has been a wonderful challenge for myself, since I now feel that I have an obligation to others to keep the posts coming. Bellow I have included a few images from what I have created thus far. Please take a look and spread the word!

studies for a collaborative project…

these are some rough sketches of a collaboration project I’m doing with Sarah Manson from Ireland, they are still only in their beginning states.

some of the drawings Im considering for the review

I need input… I have my own thoughts of course but always interested in what others have to say… take a look and let me know which 4 you would choose.

a recent drawing

Today I worked on a print all day and it came out the way I wanted it too but I used part of one of the first pulls in this drawing. I like this drawing which is why Im sad it is going to be used in a exchange, its always the way. This first image is a close up of the print I cut up, it was in a early state of the print with a shine colle from a woodblock I did in the past.

Bellow is the Drawing, a combination of drawing, paint and print.

My two new favorites…

I love these but as usual they are collaborations and soon enough they will not look like this so as usual I need to share them with the world before they no longer exsist! Let me know what you think. The layering and color are really exciting for me also, the combination of mark making is quite interesting.

Updated collaboration drawings

the newest version of our collaboration drawings, myself and Nicole Winters… I really enjoy some of the integrations and layering that is occuring.

 

drawings that made me crazy for no good reason

These drawings came from an assignment about hiding and revealing, I wish this was more natural but when ever I seem to think about these things I can’t do it, but the second I stop trying I get it! Anyway, I’m still working with the idea and I do like some of the shapes and draping, so this project will continue!

New Collaborative drawings

I’ve been posting the states of the drawings that Nicole Winters and myself have been passing back and forth and this is the next state! Enjoy because they will never look like this again.
