just a few random photos. ALSO...For those who like music, I found this great site called www.mixriot.com you must check it out. Not sure if you have heard of Pete Tong and The Essential Mix, and if you haven't you should check out the site. Some of the links on the site are hit and miss, but there are a lot of great mixes and old classics.
ok, i've mentioned this before, but I will say it again. I have an obsession with used envelopes and I believe i've gone a little too far. I found this old suitcase in the garbage so I took it and turned it into something. Not sure what to call it, but I must say the out come is sort of fun. Imagine traveling with a suitcase like this, would make traveling all that much more exciting.
I've also worked on a few new pieces, started using wax again which is so nice. My studio smells like a mixture of paint, beeswax and creativity. I nice place to hang out and create stuff.

the thoughts I have are out of my mind. whirling around like snowing leaves from a bright orange and yellow tree. if you have seen it you know what I mean. there are just so many thoughts and ideas right now that what I put on paper feels like a long story or a dream that I forgot about from the previous night. I've started carving new lino blocks, thought of trying wood but I sort of like the feeling that I have gone back to basics. lino blocks are so simple but unforgiving and I like the sense of not being able to turn back, paint over or erase what I have cut out. same things goes for the little bit of street art that I attempt.
a lot is unfolding in my sketch book and I am starting to transfer my brain storming and sketches in larger pieces of something. i wouldn't call them paintings just pieces of something "maybe art", don't know.

some of the driving force to my inspiration are hydro poles, not sure why. Mostly the wooden poles, the seem like they are the forest of our inner cities. The trees that once stood tall in an untouched forest and so important for our earth, still stand tall and hold the electricity to our every day lives.
Which is better? If you know me well you know my answer. Stand tall for all of us...

I've been out of order lately. Life has grabbed me by the ears and has taken care of my artistic freedom. Freedom to paint and do the work that I love. However, I am slowly getting things back in order. I have a few tricks up my sleeve, a few ideas that are going to be very exciting. I will hopefully be taking some of my projects to the streets, where they belong. Keep posted, send some encouragement, I could use it.
