Pipedreams #8

This here strip is the next installment of the Pipedreams cartoon that Darin Palmer and I created way back when about working in a factory. It was good therapy. Well, at least there seemed to be no shortage of material to work from. I think that this conversation actually took place at one time.

Rick And Morty, Season 2 Sketch Cards

Here are roughly half of the cards that I did for Cryptozoic's Rick & Morty, Season 2 card set. I think that maybe the card showing the fake uncle/alien  getting his brains sizzled may have been rejected. Look away, that one most likely won't be in packs. 

Some blood, drool and puss remain for your viewing pleasure. Show me what you got!

Go Figure Sketch Night At Rainy Day

Here are some sketches from the Go Figure! sketch night at Rainy Day Art Supply this past Saturday. Our model this time was a lithe Autumn Decant. 

Of all the sketches that I did that night i don't think that two looked like the same person. 

A blind contour sketch on the left.

Along with our host Kelly Nemzek, some local notable artist were Darin Palmer and Jay Fosgitt. Check out there works.

Albert Kahn

Growing up around the Detroit area its hard not to be aware and appreciate the works of Kahn, known as the ’Architect of Detroit. 

Parts of my life have beens spent in and around the buildings that he designed, including the Belle Isle Aquarium and conservatory, the Russell Industrial Center, Willow Run and the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Manor. 

This piece and over 30 others will be shown at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte MI as part of my Facets of Inspiration show. The opening is tomorrow from 6-9pm and runs through May 23.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera

Frida and Diego

The Mexican couple has a Detroit connection, as they spent time here. During that time Frida's works strengthened, as she explore different themes and narrative styles.

Diego, of course will always be connected to the area via his murals, Detroit Industry, at the Detroit Institute of Arts

This painting, as well as over 30 others will be shown at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, MI. The show opens this Thursday (6-9pm) and runs through May 23. Stop on by, if you can.

When inspiration strikes or just plain need to work through a problem, one can go to that place between thought and expression, the twilight of consciousness, a place where solutions can be found, thoughts explored, depths sounded.

This painting and many others can be seen at my show (Facets of Inspiration), which the opening night is this Thursday from 6-9 at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, MI. The show runs through May 23.

Pipedreams #7

(click on image to make biggish) 

Here is the 7th installment of the Pipedreams cartoon strip that Darin Palmer and I created way back in our dreadful factory days. The crew arrives in the morning.

The guy that Melvin is modeled after had such a vest type thing, I believe. We were all about believability.

Facets Of Inspiration Gallery Show

So, I have this show coming up consisting of portraits of people who have inspired me in some way at some time. Most times I can't quite put my finger on it, but I do know that creativity can come from many sources. And these people inspire creativity in me in some ways, be they writers, poets, actors, musicians, athletes, painters, sculptors, artists all.

The show starts on April 18th and will be up through May 23 at the River's Edge Gallery. Come on out for the opening reception, if you may.

Owner Past Slack and gallery director Jeremy Hansen are very generous in giving me a slice of space and time at their cool gallery. Much thanks, as always!
