abstract drawing

Completed this drawing a few days ago. I think I started it weeks ago, and put it down for awhile, and then resumed. It began, I assume, with some ink (maybe pencil before that?), followed by colored pencil and then some more ink details.
It’s on archival 8 ply mat board which is 10 x 8″ – the drawing itself roughly one or two inches smaller. This piece, as with most of the other works I’ve been posting on Instagram, is for sale – if you’re interested in purchasing art please send me an email, these works are priced to move.

Drawings in a book

About 13 years ago I found a pile of books near a dumpster, this was before there were those Little Free Libraries. Seeing all those neglected books waiting to go…to the dump? I would hope at the very least they were going to be recycled. but I don’t know. I grabbed one of them and went home. Eventually I started altering pages, blacking out words, and drawing in the book. The words on the pages made nice details for the backdrops of drawings. I still have the books, and it’s nowhere near complete, but I also recently came across a few scans from the book and thought I’d share them here and on Instagram. Maybe one day I’ll complete every page in the book, at least that’s something to work towards.

You heard right. I’m planning on giving away a drawing each month to one lucky newsletter subscriber… and it could be you! The only requirement is that you’ve signed up to receive my newsletter. It’s free to sign up and you can unsubscribe at any time. I’m thinking the giveaway will be around the middle of each month, so you still have time to subscribe for the July drawing.

I’m thinking, since this is the first month of trying it out, I’ll pick a random subscriber around the middle of the month. Subscribe now and I’ll have more contest details sent out via newsletter soon.

the lucky subscriber might win this drawing…or something else, who knows

Find me on YouTube

I’m on YouTube now. I have been for a long time, but I actually started a channel for uploading art videos, and uploaded a time-lapse video of drawing last week.

I’m working on my second upload now, which should be posted today, tomorrow, or the next day. I’m hoping to post about one video per week, sometimes older drawings, sometimes brand new things.

Follow this link to my channel & subscribe, help me get to my first 100 subscribers!

regaining my ability to focus

painmeds-01.png

Most of February and some of March I was recovering from a bicycle accident at home. I did some digital drawing, but wasn’t too motivated to create anything except healed bones (a broken pelvis is quite excruciating!)

I drew this pill bottle using a graphics-tablet and Adobe Illustrator, my left hand pinky finger was broken and made drawing on paper difficult. The bottle was filled with heavy pain meds, which made it hard to think straight, but definitely helped manage the pain. I’m better now, and recovered just in time to be told to stay home due to the global pandemic 😕

Now I’m slowly getting back to drawing, some paper, some digital, and am looking forward to sharing more soon. Please check out and follow my other social media sites if you haven’t already:
