winter…

seasonal affective disorder has set in. here’s a really simple drawing i put together after weeks of the typical creative drought. it may or may not be completed. i wish i could figure out how to give these works more texture and depth, either digitally or on paper, but i don’t know if i have the motivation to do that.

goals

one of my newest pipe dream future goals is to have one of my drawings turned into a giant mural on the side of a building, or even just an interior wall. i’ve always been more comfortable working small and with as few/simple materials as possible. i don’t like having to hold onto a physical end product. but i do like the idea of a product that is built into a place, which is what my work is about – place (landscape), but also place without physical burden. just “finished” the below piece…

bye, instagram

it was getting, frankly, disheartening, having only porn bots ‘interact’ with my account…so i removed the app from my phone, but not before archiving all posts and deleting all highlights (the account is still activated for personal reference/future return).

i’m interested to see how my work can grow in the absence of instagram’s outsized influence on my (and most other’s) creativity, so i will try to post snapshots and drawings here on my own site to track the growth. below is a work i started a couple of months ago and only found the mental fortitude to return to now, and even that was a struggle.

cumulonimbus

in hindsight, it feels like a blend of the northeast appalachians/white mountains i recently saw for the first time with the brown/gold skies of the wildfire-torn west coast.
