This was one of the first techniques I learned when I began art school, back in fall ’89. It was eye-opening. For the first time, I wasn’t responsible for every nuance that came along. The surface dictated what marks were left. Suddenly, I felt a sense of freedom from that burden of decision in art; […]
A couple more paintings from this summer, based on memory of the busted up pier that juts out into the point at Crystal Beach, Ont.
I’ve done a fair amount of these over the years. About time I put them all in one place.
Some drawings I did in summer 2016, trying to come up with a logo or t-shirt idea for the Bay Beach Club in Ontario, Canada.
These have been really fun to make and gouache is just the best medium IMHO. I made a bunch of prints of them at the local shop, and after a couple of shows sold quite a few. Contact me if you want one!
The longer you’ve been using an application, the less value you hold to the app developer as a user. Take Facebook. Once upon a time, it was a linear, flowing post stream. If you missed something, you missed it. Now, I have no idea where my posts go or who sees them or in what context. Facebook […]
Great show. Loved the sax, and seeing it live made me realize how hard it is to pull off solos like they did in the 80s. Not enough people there, which is a shame. We’re lucky they keep coming back and should support one of the most notable, iconic sounds out of that era.
Best month of the year. Each day is wide open. Seems like this June stretches on forever.
Made it a lot easier to make fonts. I hate having to export glyphs to another program. Website: https://www.fontself.com/ Here’s my first attempt:
Vikings is one of my favorite shows. Great characters. I’ve especially liked scenes with Harbard lately. He’s an amazing, intriguing character that embodies the mythology and superstition that were rampant in that time. My favorite line of his came during the last show, “Possession is the opposite of love”. Can’t stop thinking about how true that […]
A couple more before I give ’em away…
Quick summary of the trip: The conference: The location: Weather: was awesome Family: Loved seeing my Mom, Dad, Clare and Bob, walking around and learning the neighborhood The Barnes Museum was too crowded. But this made it all ok. Food: Spice End was the best thing I ate on the trip. Second best was Tir Na Nog because it was […]
What an awesome experience, and great job done by the organizers. As an organizer myself, I learned a few tricks and got some ideas for the next WCBUF. One thing I want to consider is killing the whole lunch thing altogether. Too many variables that inevitably go wrong. Provide coffee and water all day long, […]
Work is good when it’s used as an agent of self improvement.
