So I found a bottle of gold ink during Spring cleaning. Somebody pinch me.
Freshly harvested tunes to blow your mind or perhaps just encourage the toes to tap. This show is on Spotify.
Throwing another illustration out there to keep the flow going. I had started this one over a year ago and never got passed the outline stages of it. I guess it seemed overwhelming at the time. But when a publication recently asked to publish a large number of my works, I used the chance to actually finish this portrait. Upon completion however, I conveniently forgot to include this drawing in the collection. Oh well, at least I finally got to finish it.
After The Pause Spring 2021 Volume 8 Issue 1 is available for view and contains within 3 of my illustrations. Thank you to editor Michael Prihoda for interest in my work.
Kitchen Pirates Radio!
It’s a whole bunch of my favorite Paul McCartney tunes! I have never done any theme based shows before, and I suppose this would be a good place to start one. Sir Paul has been on my mind a lot lately, watching documentaries on Youtube, learning more about this amazing songsmith. I pulled Beatles tunes that made me think of Paul the most as well. I know there will be a ton of missed songs and even albums for that matter that others may have put in instead, but with 2 hours to spare, this was the best list I could fathom. I sincerely hope you enjoy the tunes and agree that it is never the wrong time to listen to Paul McCartney. This show is on Spotify!
Some new illustrations. Enjoy.
The Light Ekphrastic
Jenny O’ Grady from Light Ekphrastic was very kind in letting me be involved with this process of giving one of my illustrations to a poet (the wonderfully talented Lois Marie Harrod), with which she wrote a poem based on it, then I chose a poem from L.M.H. in which I drew an illustration from. We communicated lightly with one another, I think our works did most of the heavy lifting though. You can see both poems and their partnered illustrations @ thelightekphrastic(dot)com. Thank you Jenny for this great opportunity.
Aloka Online Magazine
Recently I got the opportunity to work with some very nice people over at Aloka Non-Native English Creative Writing Magazine. They liked my art and gave me the chance to be featured in their fine publication. A brief interview took place and I sent over illustrations, some older, and some brand new that I made just for the feature. Head over to their site to see the interview and all the art. Thank you kindly to Aloka and all their hard working staff and thank you to all of you who have supported my endeavors thus far. I am grateful to have the chance to do these types of things, when time allows. To my wife and children, thank YOU the most.
These were clipped and saved from various rags throughout the years.
