my bike has gears

Here is another lino block print with watercolour and ink. I have recently found a couple frames in my packed up boxes, so I want to make another little collage piece like the one from my previous post.I posted a photo of it below. These little drawings and such tend to keep me going with creating new pieces.

Not that I am making art for money, believe me I don't make much from my work. Even though I receive the most amazing comments from people and I am very thankful, but so you know all my work is for sale. If you are interested please contact me at any time.

Ok there friends, enjoy my art blog and see you soon.

little sparrow

A nice little song to go along with these...

Devendra Banhart Wake up, Little Sparrow Lyrics:
Wake up, wake up little sparrow
Don't make your home out in the snow
Don't make your home out in the snow

Little bird, oh dontcha know
Your friends flew south many months ago
Your friends flew south many months ago

You're just a babe, you cannot fly,
Your wings won't spread up against the sky
Your wings won't spread up against the sky

Wake up, wake up little sparrow
Don't make your home out in the snow
Don't make your home out in the snow
Don't make your home out in the snow

a few illustrations - bird character

These are some of the newest illustrations I have competed. I've used a mix of ink and watercolour.

I have several other goodies to post, new lino prints, drawings and sketches. There are hopes of a t-shirt series for the above images, mostly likely I will only go with one image but change up the colour with the sizes of t-shirt. Maybe even a bike bag design with the screen printed birdz.

I'll keep ya posted.

drawings and cutouts

I'm still working on a few things, drawings, cutouts and on-going brainstorming. Soon it will be time to move again, taking supplies to another studio and place to live. Until then there are things and stuff around the apartment that need to be prepared for this summers installations. Most of the work will happen at the new place tho. Oh that place is called the Wolfden Bunkhouse, I've spoken about there before and have also posted a few images. Check out the link here, and you may even want to visit the Wolfden for some time away.

a few things on the go

There are a few things on the go, new illustrations, t-shirt design, lots of brainstorming and drawing for the new installations this year and a NEW WEBSITE. I've used a free web hosting called Weebly, as much as I would like a fancy paid site I think using this free tool is actually really nice. Check it out and give me some feedback.

Above photos are a few close-ups of reused drift wood that I painted on, and the bird cut-outs that I will be using for one of the installations I will attempt within the forest of the Algonquin Highlands this year.

More to come, lots of work to do...

take a closer look

There are so many close up photos that I have taken over the years of my work. Work in progress and finished pieces, so I thought why not post a hand full of them. Originally I was going to post over twenty close ups, but how ridiculous would that be. At least this way you can see some of the detail that are in a few of the pieces. Maybe I will make a few posts of some other fun shots of detailed work. Enjoy and thanks a bunch.

bike gears with a log

The hairly log sketch is my favourite little doodle at the moment, why I have no idea. I also decided to re-work a painting that I thought was finished last year, the only thing I had changed was that I added some wax. There are some other things and stuff that I am sketching out and brainstorming with. Most likely there will not be a lot of new work till the spring and summer since I am doing most of my research and such till then. In saying that I will still be posting drawings and project ideas. If anyone out there would be interested in helping me with an installation or two this summer please contact me. Any help will be appreciated and I am for sure you will learn a lot. I will be sending call outs with more details in the next month or so. Till then keep watching and thanks.

from within

You can run after satisfaction, but satisfaction must come from within.
