Free Art (Tomorrow Only), 2013. Silk screen on cotton
I printed a bunch of these up as patches the other day—they’ll be up on Etsy soon. The message is a riff off the “Free Beer Tomorrow” signs you see in bars and a response to the abundance of would-be clients who expect art and design (or some part of the process) to be done without payment.
Super List Saturday, May 4, 2013: 6 Things That Feel Really Good.
I bought a brush the other day and discovered I really like the way it feels compared to combing. Why have I been using combs all my life? Then I made this list.
Wool, for Illustration Friday.
You know that pair of Levi’s I’ve had for about ten years? The ones that are frayed and covered in paint and have the knees all worn out? I think the time has come for me to be rid of them, not so much because they’re too beat up, but because I’ve beat up some other jeans enough that I’m painting in them now.
I’m not quite sure what to do with them, though. My (now deceased) grandmother bought them for me at a church sale, and I may have created more art in them than any other article of clothing I own. Maybe I should cut them into pieces like I did with that big drawing?
Today is Wacom Wednesday!
I got a new computer last week, and I did this little test with one of my train portraits to see how Photoshop and my tablet were handling.
Super List Saturday, October 6, 2012: 8 Things In My Framing Apron.
I don’t know if the Tumblr outage will screw up my SLS this week, but I’m gonna roll with it and see what happens.
So I have this day job where I sell and construct rectangles made out of wood, metal and glass. It’s a pretty OK job, especially compared to others I’ve had in the past, and I get to wear this apron. It’s like a Batman utility belt for all my gear.
Super List Saturday, September 8, 2012: 9 Impractical Shoes.
I bought a new pair of shoes yesterday. I looked around at a few different pairs for a while, but then I remembered that no matter what I was going to settle on whatever cheap and comfy grey* skate shoe was available, so I got those. Maybe I am trapped in the ninth grade or something, I don’t know.
Anyway, that got me thinking about what kind of crazy impractical shoes you could design, and here we are.
*Grey and brown are great colors because it’s hard to tell when they get grimy. PRO TIP.
