A painting for the brother of a friend

Heres a newish painting with an oldish element in it. Been a long time since I painted to be honest so this was a good ice breaker and now I'm in the mood to work on the new stuff for the show in august.

A new sketch...

I'm finally going to get started on a series of paintings along these lines. Curious to see what happens when I change up the materials I usually work with. Should be an interesting and frustrating experiment but I need to change up the medium and the subject matter. Things get too comfortable and predictable.

Digital sketch-something to do

When I was young my buddy Buck and I used to go spend the day at this place in the summer way up the McCloud arm of Lake Shasta. Deep green swimming hole, big fish and angry locals. Rarely a soul in sight. I miss the company and the place.

Big Illustration Party Time

Josh and Kevin asked me to talk about art theory and writing artist's statements for their podcast Big Illustration Party Time. It was fun and I felt like a jerk for monopolizing most of the time but if you're interested in a listen heres a link.

I have no idea how to make that actually clickable...

found this recently

Found an old drawing that was sent off to a friend on the east coast a while back. This was inspired by an artist named Robin Earles who is a really great draftsperson (if thats a word). Here a link to her old site (not updated in a few years). Values are blown out but I think its still fun to look at.

newish drawing+digital collage concept

Kicking around ideas for a new series of paintings. Thought I'd post it in case anyone out there is interested. I don't usually do any preliminary sketches but I'm trying to get the rust out of my brain before I start. We'll see where it leads.
