The LA County Fair ends May 30th which means this is the last chance to see the mural I created in front of the Flower & Garden Pavillion. Read about it in John Brantingham’s essay in the Journal of Radical Wonder: John Otter’s Mural at the LA County Fair. And if you haven’t already watched the process video on YouTube it’s right here: John Otter: Painting Large.
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.
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:
