Paintings Post

Hey Internet, I’m dumping a bunch of paintings here that I did last month. I’ll take them over to Gallery Boom to have for sale later today, though who knows if Christine will put them up now or soon or ever. Anyhow, these were all done with house paint on different types of wood. Snapshots taken with my camera from across the living room, so no judgements on the lighting/focus, right?

If anyone cares, All Good Excuses is now up to 75 different excuses generated randomly. I’ll probably slow down on that and get back to my real work for awhile.

All Good Excuses

I just created a new website, called All Good Excuses, which is a random excuse generator. Next time you need to flake on someone, get your excuse from a professional!

RAGE_1I’ll be adding more excuses this week, or at least until I get bored and move on to some other scheme. For those keeping track, the excuses are all India ink on bristol. Sizes vary.

True Detective

True Detective

11″17″ some kinda ink on bristol. I drew this while watching True Detective and using the parallel pilot pen I got a month or so ago. The pen is great, but I hate the ink. It smears, takes forever to dry, and feathers to a ridiculous amount. I tried replacing it with an ink I like better, but it leaked everywhere. Yuck. If anyone has any experience or suggestions, let me know. I’ll take a crack at swapping it again before too long, probably. As I said, I like the pen and want to use it, I just need it to be waterproof and good.

No posts in forever! I had a lazy July. Probably all the heat. I am finishing up a series of about a dozen paintings that I’ll probably get posted here or somewhere in some sort of fashion at some point. They’re too big to scan. Complicated! Such bright colors! Inspired by nature! Paint!

If anyone liked any of the tiny line stuff I was working on back in Spring, it’s all in a box in my office, since it just came down from a show at the Capitol Theater in Olympia. Now is the perfect time to email and say, “Hey I want to buy that one of that thing,” then get a series of muddled rambling responses back before giving up on me, and going on to make fun of my awesome business acumen to people on the internet. Yow!

Astronauts on the town.

Hey internet, I’ve got an astronaut up in Seattle somewhere.PCalavera_BlastOff

This guy lived in my garage for about 6 weeks while I worked on him, and is now loose in Seattle somewhere. Enjoy him. The project was done through the Museum of Flight to celebrate their 50th year teaching museums how to fly, or flies about museums, I was never really clear on that. Anyhow, I think he’s in Tukwila somewhere right now, then moves to Bellevue, before ending up back at the Museum at the end of Summer.


 

In other news, I got a new pen, so you get a new Panda Bunny.dark PB11″x14″ ink on bristol. A little bit morose, but that’s what this pen is like, I guess. Haven’t fully decided what I think of it.


 

Finally, my gallery, Gallery Boom in Tumwater, has a GoFundMe thing going, apparently. So check that out.

Calavara at the Capitol Theater

So, the gallery at the Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia is all full up of my artwork. You should really go by there, catch a movie, and check it out. The upstairs artwork is all the tiny lines drawing I’ve been doing over the last couple of months, but in the main area, next to the screen, I put together these big colorful monsters as a sort of installation.

Whatta Wait For Panda Bunny

For some reason it’s been over a month since I last posted. Distracted by squirrels, I guess.  Tis the season. Enjoy some Panda Bunny to make up for it.

Anyhow, even though I haven’t posted, I haven’t slacked off on work, though. I continued producing several more pieces for my Tiny Lines stuff (all the art I’ve posted here whenever I was still posting), including writing and illustrating a new book sorta in the style. I’m not sure when it will be out because the printers I use are being crazy slow about getting back to me. It was supposed to be out this week in time for the Olympia Comics Fest this weekend, which I’ll be at as a vendor. Come on by this Saturday and wish me Happy Birthday! I’ll have a new Tiny Lines coffee mug, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Speaking of the Tiny Lines stuff, I’ll be meeting later today at OFS to begin putting a bunch of it up as their gallery show there, which is pretty slick. Should be done sometime this week.

I’m mired in inking little lines all over a 6ft Astronaut for the Museum of Flight up in Seattle, which is pretty awesome, though a lot of work. I’ll let you know when more info is out about this and then when and where it can be viewed in public.

There you go.

yellow12″x9″ India ink (pen) and drawing ink on bristol. I let a 2 year old pick the colors for this one, but in retrospect probably should have left it b/w.  Oh well.

Somewhere out there, I think I did another blue PB, but I can’t find it… somewhere in the stacks of art in my office, I guess, or maybe I sold it. Who knows!
