Preparing to design more ‘Clem Heads’

Preparing for NEW Clem Dog Head paintings. Lots of ideas (Mexican wrestler, circulatory system, plaids, patterns, and or scale style masks). I though lots of sketches would be a good idea. So I cut a stamp out of this block.

I need to get myself a press, Does anyone have a press they would like to trade for art work?

Drawing now starting to cut a new linoleum block, this is going to be fun.

It took too long to find my knives. Everything came back to me once I had them in my hand.

I think that will do it, Now for some ink. I have no black, just brown.

Brown ink, now for some hand pressing.

I read Danielle Krysa, and I love Vincent Serritella’s work

There are a few blogs I  keep up with, thejealouscurator is one. So I was reading this article and then my world shrank a little. this is how it happened (the shrinking)…

I’m reading, reading, cool picture of a book, reading some more, reading a name ‘Vincent’, more reading, cool picture, …what did i just read? Now i’m backing up and re-read and thats when the world got a little smaller for me…

(“with my amazing PIXAR host, visual-effects expert / fine artist Vincent Serritella, and my good friend Cariann Nesler.)

I read Danielle Krysa, and I love Vincent Serritella‘s work and he’s a nice guy too. Now for some pictures…

The boys wanted baby versions of all the animals, that’s why there are so many elephants, it took a minute to make them tiny.

The Feliciano brothers make monsters.

Afternoon project with TATA:

On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉

Motor bicycle, two stroke!

This weekend got the engine running, kids helped and there was lots of white smoke (the kids thought it was neat). The Fix: Replaced the spark plug and drained the gas and oil out, refilled the gas and oil. Started with a little “starter spray” in the carburetor. From the amount of oil drained out it looks like the case was over full. It’s running like a top now.

‘Nature finds a way’ Jurassic Park

This spring I decided to landscaping the back yard. I cut a young oaks to bring more light into the yard. I am reusing it in the landscaping as hand rails and posts. I was moving quickly so I opted to just drop them in a hole and pack in rocks instead of using concrete. Well the branches and trunks are growing, I don’t know what’s happening under ground, but parts above ground are sprouting and the whole thing looks very surreal.

New Job!

Sparks Grove

After moving to Atlanta from LA I was worried that I would have trouble finding a good job. After a few interviews I really started to worry about the job market. Then I interviewed with the team at Sparks Grove, wow sweet. I will be posting goodies and samples soon.

I have also been given the green light from a previous project and I will be add the drawings to my portfolio.
