Maybe you noticed the new t-shirt section of the site after I posted Hot Tees the other day? If you haven’t seen it yet, click around. They’re one of a kind. Stalker Magnet and Got Antibodies? are from the Sick Healer collection, an original line of funny & medically inspired tees. Proceeds from the collection will be donated to VoiceLove.
A few years back, freelance design work led me to starting a marketplace style t-shirt shop called Swing Swag using a popular creative marketplace service. After years of observation, I feel like the unnamed service unfairly preys on the right-brain dominant creatives with their complex hidden fees. I decided to boycott them and work on my own online t-shirt shop.
There are 3 48×60 heavy duty stretcher bar frames and a rolled up painting in the freshly painted hallway. Canvas and paint, coming soon.
B&W Show at the RRCArts in Millville up through March 13. I have two pieces in the group show that have never been shown. I recently framed the whole series in wildly reflective frames. I would really like to show them all together someday.
I went to start the car. Click, nothing. Maybe I left the lights on.
After a year of not driving anywhere, I’m still not used to this car. There’s an ‘auto’ setting for the headlights that looks exactly the same as the ‘on’ setting, according to all the light-up indicators that one might be able to see after dark… you know, when you use lights. Unlike like every other car I’ve driven since 2004, someone didn’t include the “lights have been on for a long time so let’s automatically turn ’em off so the battery doesn’t die,” feature. The battery drained but I got some drawing time.
Just like that, I was on the couch wearing makeup with flat-ironed hair in sweatpants. Why not do another mirror sketchbook selfie?
Yes. That is a piece of homemade charcoal I worked with.
You know those orange trumpet flower vines along the Hudson at Battery Park? I made charcoal out of those creeper vines… except they were from my Mom’s. She doesn’t like vines, so I put them to good use.
Homemade charcoal is neat to work with. This vine charcoal came out soft, which was nice for building up subtle tones. A little fixative probably would have come in handy… but it’s just a sketchbook selfie.
A couple of my saltwater pieces are in a pop-up called The Elements Show in Hammonton this week. If you’re free and in the area Thursday evening, come to the opening!
