Coltrane, 2014. Ink, collage and digital color.
My first QDC post of the year is a portrait of John Coltrane for our group’s contribution to Jazz and Draw. If you aren’t familiar with Coltrane’s legendary work as a saxophonist and band leader, Coltrane Plays the Blues is a great place to start.
Coltrane was a great musical figure to explore in this piece. I’m looking forward to seeing the other portraits from the rest of the QDC.
Merry Christmas! I’ve been thinking a lot about the Santa Claus myth and its origins, so I came up with this Santa Claus vs. Saint Nicholas Christmas card. Maybe Santa isn’t as bad as I’m making him out to be, but I think he’s a far cry from the humble saint who snuck money into a poor family’s house so he wouldn’t get credit for it. I hope you’re all having a saintly holiday—don’t let The Man turn you into a Claus.
My last Quick Draw post of 2013! My first year as a member of QDC has been great, cheers.
Super List Saturday, November 16, 2013: 8 Happy Cats.
These cats are happy. Why are they so happy?
The holidays are upon us, Tumblypoos. I have as many gripes about the season as the next guy, but if there’s one thing about the holidays we can agree is awesome, it’s the food.
I’m happy to announce I have an illustrated recipe published in They Draw and Cook's Holiday Sweet recipe book! All the recipes, including my healthy ginger cookies, come from the website and are illustrated by people who love art and love food. Read the TDAC blog post here and buy the book on Amazon here.
