Admittedly, I've been pretty lax about updating everyone with how things are progressing,...

...but they're progressing well!

Expect an official, aptly-named website!

For your excitement:


In any case, here are some of the things I've been working on. I'm hunkered down in a basement, playing around with different things and working at vastly different scales. The large fish number is about 2.5x4 feet, if you can believe it.

I'm more or less painting, while at the same time working on tying my site together. It's proving to be pretty cumbersome a process - in a good way! Basically, I'll be working on the site - specifically, the gallery sections - and I'll be inspired with a new idea from my paintings or other artists' websites or anything really, and I'll want to bring it all back to square-one - either that or I'll just start painting too much, and some of my older stuff starts to drift off as being irrelevant. I don't think it's irrelevant, really.

Anyways, here it is:

Take care,

So, here is more flash work I've been setting up as samples for curious kids.

The process of sitting and drawing with a tablet is fun, and it's great for working around with color with a strange sort of throwaway feeling to it (in the sense that, if I don't like it, I can get rid of it easily enough).

I miss painting with this frequency, though.

More to come...

Take care,

It's a little bit late, and I'm a bit tired, but I thought that I would post some things that I've been working on at camp.

I've been playing around in flash, to get the much desired "you kids can do this, too!" effect.

I hope it's working. They're becoming more inspired to investigate this strange world of working with colors, animation, and tablets.


Anyways, what do you think?

Take care,

Some obligatory new stuff...

I've been telling myself for weeks that - hey, I haven't posted any new work, even though I've been working consistently enough to show something.

So, here's some work.

I'm drawing inspiration from everywhere, lately, trying new things, letting go of or changing old things, keeping up with the process, and just generally playing away with a supply of paint that is dwindling (I need to buy more and possibly better paint).

I really like the sense of freedom that I feel with the whole thing, and I hope that enjoyment shows through more than anything.

In other news, I'm getting ready to make a huge push to get an actual website up. Although, it isn't keeping me awake at night. Although, although, it probably will keep me up at night when I get to work on it.

In completely separate - although, maybe not - news, I'm off to camp on the 19th for two months. I'm curious to see how my work will change, through the great experience. Time will tell.

Let me know what you think. As always, sorry for the lazy documentation. I'll get around to tightening up the presentation a bit...maybe...

Take care,

So, here are a few new pieces that I've been working on. I also have a larger one that I am really enjoying working on, but my camera absolutely devours batteries - to the point of me running out of them - and it's just too big to piece together on the scanner.

I'm just really enjoying the process, though, as usual. There's this aimlessness with the whole thing that really lends its hand to what I actually paint and how I actually paint it, and all of that is mixed in with my opinions of my life and hopes for the future. So, it's all pretty dynamic and purely spontaneous, which is good. It really lets me break out of norms that I set for myself, or, at the very least, appreciate when I do something stupid, which I feel is important.

Beyond that, though, I'm really focusing in on what I want to do with my work. The most obvious thing to note is that I do want to make a living doing the work that I feel good about - which is to say the work that I blog about, and not the work I get a paycheck for.

I do know that I eventually want to have a show with the work I've accumulated.

I do know that I want to take the time to write some sort of fleshed out statement - there's a lot in my head, in the way of talking about my artwork. Things have changed, since I first started working on wood.
