You know those windmills out by Palm Springs?

This past weekend we took a trip out there in the burning hot sun – to get out of the house, to explore and roam. I had purchased a few Stabilo pens from the new art store in town Neon Moon Art Supply and had an old mostly empty sketchbook with me. We ended up sitting beneath a billboard along side the highway that provided some shade and I sketched the windmills. While I was drawing a slow rolling freight train passed by and we pointed out our favorite graffiti.

I’m streaming on Twitch tonight – starting around 6 pm Pacific (or 5:30? follow my account and get notifications of when I go live). I’m hoping to finish up this somewhat large abstract drawing which is on the back of a desktop calendar page #PandemicArt

Also, if you haven’t heard already: every month I’m mailing off an original drawing to one lucky newsletter subscriber! I’ve sent two off already and the next could be headed your way, all you need to do is be a current newsletter subscriber – you can find a link to subscribe here – I usually pick the winner around the middle of the month, so you have a week or two to subscribe.

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!

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.

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.
