Why is Miss Pink holding up eight fingers? It is day two of one hundred, making a pink sketchbook and this is Miss Pink’s story.
I have been working on lots of things, round and round. Today working on the face and mood of the next watercolor ‘girl riding in front of graffiti’. The first day sketching can be the hardest, my favorite. Getting the shape of summer, speed, joy and a tiny amount of anxiety in the smile. The first painting what a two wheeler, next a three wheeler (big wheel style). Now for a four wheeler skater. Roller skating at the end of summer, watercolor.

Halloween monsters, what makes them scary, a light hearted look at what makes them tick.
Drawings from a late night, the stillness is inspiring. An old large sketch book and a giant bag of makers.
Monsters, what makes them frightening.
Yes, up late and making marks on paper, today I’m rocking a red sharpie, a red dry erase and a red Windsor Newton watercolor maker. Dogs and peaceshocka for pages. All tiny little thorny. Small micro dogs stitched and fat. Dogs thin tiny little… again and again. lots of red. Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace….all red then I switch to using a strange black ink brush pen, foam tip style… not my fave, it might be a bit dry.

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. 16, 5×7 inch paper drawings, Alex Feliciano …
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 triptych has changed over time and givin me chances …
