Still just doing one minute drawings I feel a bit clumsy with the iPad, new media is always funny at first.

Update, “The lines Attack” show at the Hive, LA

Working and getting excited about this new, in-progress, body of work (5×7 collage drawings, done with paper, paint and ink.) will be shown at the Hive Gallery in May for “The Lines Attack” show.

I have been attempting to illustrate a narrative that until now only lived in my sketchbooks, it’s a fractured series of vignettes that record my musings as I commute around the planet. Some of which, “A study on animal development in responds to auto injuries (in fast forward)”, and A rumination on advances in facial hair despite contrary marketing.

I had a dog, I named him “cow”, he was a happy dog.

Some of my paintings feature a dog. I like to use “Cow“, he was a big Black, white and tan dog. You can see him in the painting (BlueRoom, left, 2009). He is in the background and he is in the painting on the wall, laying down between the red chairs.

I did a piece dedicated to the dreams he might have had, he was a very active sleeper. I thought about it and tried to imagine what smells would look like. Below is a detail (Cow’s Dreamscape, 3of3, 2008) of Cow.

The first panel was purchased by a collector in 2008 from the “Hive” gallery in LA. I loved the idea of the piece i created a new first panel. Below is the set as it was originally.
