Being an artist of any kind is an obsessive kind of lifestyle. To many, it may seem like we’re wasting time, but we’re not. Artists (of every stripe) are consciously, or subconsciously, making something or thinking about making something. It’s a 24/7 type of life. There’s no on or off. Just tuned up or tuned down. Ask any artist, they’ll tell you. It’s an natural born fact.
In that vein, here are some of my recent daily doodles. I’ve been making a lot of these. Small pieces of the larger concept.
It’s a long way to the top, if you wanna draw maps.
Hello, and Happy New Year. I know, it’s been a while since I posted. I thought I’d catch up a little while on break but I’ve been quite busy with life in general. I did manage a little time in the studio this week. Not enough, but better than none.
The main reason for this post is the big news. I have been chosen as the local artist in residence for June 2023 at Stove Works, the internationally recognized artist residency in Chattanooga. I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to it with great anticipation.
