little 11 x 8 1/2 inch wonderlands where i play around. all from fall/winter 2010. i’ve filled three more sketchbooks of various sizes since. urban landscape watercolors coming soon…
beautiful, my dear. so wonderfully beautiful! xo/xo
awwwwwwwww, thank youuuuu! your last dope parlor post fuh-loored me
You know what, I’m very much inclneid to agree.
Hell yes. I think about this a lot lately, and at it’s best I think shrnaig one’s art with others is like a good conversation. Definitely an exchange. You put it very well cooks need their food to be eaten: not for the positive feedback, but because that’s the food’s purpose.Delicious textures, by the way.
THX that’s a great anwser!
Walking in the presence of gniats here. Cool thinking all around!
Fairly great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanetd to say that I have actually enjoyed reading through your posts. Any way I’ll be signing up to your feed and I hope you post once more soon.
LOVE seeing your sketch book pages. It makes me so happy to see you using your site! So happy! : )
2 things I wish I did more, that I used to ruelgarly, are drawing & playing the guitar. Using your hands directly to make a mark or a sound is so much more creative and satisfying than the digital realm.I don’t know about anyone else but I think the main problem is that there are just so many new things to try, to learn and so much to do with so little time that the computer always wins you can work so fast and the results are more attractive to clients. I sketch a lot of roughs in Illustrator these days a habit I swore I’d never get in to.I have considered doing a life drawing class again, the rigidity of a class at set times often provides the only way we in which we can focus ourselves. Self regulating such things can be very difficult, often we are forced to re-prioritise on the hoof.I used to dedicate a certain amount of time a week to both but in the words of Homer I used to rock ‘n roll all night and party everyday. Then it was every other day. Now I’m lucky if I can find half an hour a week in which to get funky. Sack it, I’m diggin out my Wolfgang and slamming a few riffs out to get me in the mood to work later!
learned a lot
Art, inspiration -in wheavetr form- has a life of its own. It doesn’t show up to be shoved in a drawer. It shows up through the the creator to be released into the world. Keep it, and it keeps you. Let it out into the world, and you make room for what is next, room for the guest. It is the only way to grow as a person, as a creator. Of course, there are lots of talented people who have created masterworks in isolation. Imagine what might have been made with the energy of the world around them. It’s like a fabulous band playing to an empty room. They may be fabulous, but there could be so much more
The passion to express “ones real emotions” is a fine art in its own
The love of our family and friends is the greatest wealth of gifts we can give….
You say things so beulaiftuly, much the same way you create your art. I love it all. When I see your pieces I am instantly transported to a place of wondering, wondering about the experience you enjoyed while sketching/painting, the journeys that you took in your mind. I love it all, thanks for sharing and releasing!
This is brilliant qlutiay stuff. It’s awesome to see this type of work from you, because you wouldn’t be able to see this part of your diverse talent looking at your online portfolio. KEEP SKETCHING!!! As more and more people become photoshop savvy and even hacks like me can follow complex PS tutorials; the demand for such hand made art will skyrocket. Bottom line. Anybody can purchase PS and follow a tutorial, Most people can not draw, paint or sculpt. Please continue to develop these unique gifts and talents.
HOW did i miss this post? Hi, Uncle Eugene! It has been forever since I’ve looked at these posts. I’ll e-mail you. Thanks for the love
I just want to tell you that I am beginner to blogging and site-building and truly enjoyed your blog site. Almost certainly I’m want to bookmark your blog post . You certainly have wonderful article content. Thanks a lot for sharing with us your web page.
thanks for the love! i’ve been busy, but new work will be up soon
and! Dan and Arielle at Tone Creative are responsible for the awesomeness that is this entire layout
thank you so much! i need to add to it. new stuff up soon.
My buddy and I used to draw for hours at his kitchen table miankg superhero comic books (never getting past the cover and first page) but we always made our own hero. There were countless discussions about who’s guy would win in a fight. ..ya well then my guy would use his laser eyes and kill you, or his frost breath! You can’t have both! Pick an ability, you can’t have them all I guess the creator of Superman never had a pal beside him comparing heroes ha ha.
Though I can’t touch your profundity, I must get what you’re talinkg about because I do it: release, release, release. I used to share my sketches/drawings more sparingly, among family & friends, or through my professional pursuits only. But now, through web-based art exchanges & real-life art groups/courses, I’m more free with them. I’m stretching out all over. And I’m being stretched by others, whose influence & ideas intrigue me.Am I a better artist for it? I couldn’t say. But it sure feels good
couldn’t have said it better myself! i recently abandoned all of my old sketchbooks in random places in my town in upstate new york, and gave a bunch of work away. i feel much lighter.
This happens to ereyvone. The problem is that drawing takes far more time and effort and, in most cases, cleanup.It is sad. I used to draw prolifically. Now, I haven’t drawn much of note since I was required to in college. I’m hoping to get back into it as well. It’s hard when you have other crap to accomplish and a limited lifespan!
Totally agree with you on that one. I miss the old college days when I didn’t have a comutper or a tv. All I had was my guitar, a cd player and a drawing board and a large number of pencils. Went through about 8 drawing books in my first two years at OCAD.Drop the mouse and step away from the electronic box people! Find your roots!
right on. the pen is mightier than the mac
