This weekend the family dragged me to a scarecrow building contest. This is a contest intended to allow kids to be creative and show off their stuff as budding young artists. Of course, my wife decided it would be a great opportunity to kick some underaged-art-noob butt. Pictured here is her winning entry in the category "most likely to scare a crow."
Here are post on my site that pertain to art. I also have and entire Art section, so looking for "art" tags may not be the best approach towards completing your quest!
After more than a dozen years of maintaining a personal Web site, I have finally decided to monetize this thing (well, okay, that doesn't count the Google ads in the sidebar, but those barely earn any money anyways). I have gone through my gallery and enabled a PayPal shopping cart system to take orders for my art. Currently, there are about twelve prints for sale. So, start shopping now!
Thank you for your order. I will package and ship you art in the next day or two. Please feel to e-mail me if you have a question or if there is a problem with your order.
The majority of these works for sale are limited edition prints. Each of these works, although they exist in multiple, is considered an original work of art in and of itself. Each print signed, numbered and hand-printed by the artist himself. The editions are usually limited to no more than 25 prints. In other words, these aren't mass-produced posters, they are each the result of days, sometimes months, of hard work.
My family and I just spent a weekend in LaGrange, Georgia visiting with relatives. Among the highlights of the trip, aside from the obligatory breakfasts at Waffle House, was an evening spent roller skating at Red's Roller Rink. When we walked in the place they were blasting "Ice Ice Baby" so I knew this was going to be a fun time. I hadn't been roller skating since the late eighties and it took quite some time to get my roller disco legs back in action, but once I got going, it was hard to stop... literally. Anyhow, I also enjoyed the Jesus mural at the far end of the hall. Click the image above for a full view!
My daughter created her first "Hello World" program to today. It was programmed in sidewalk chalk++.
This is going to be a poster for an upcoming Nonagon show. It's based on an earlier image I made about a decade ago that I never did anything with. Hopefully I will be able to finish in a day or two so that we can get these Xeroxed off in a timely manner.
UPDATE: Here's a link to the finished poster.
"For decades, the liberals have pretended that they can be anti-big-business, anti-commerce, and anti-marketing -- while still being staunch defenders of free speech. But in a free society -- where art and literature are not monopolies of the state -- the private sale and marketing of books, movies, music, etc., is the indispensable means by which artists and intellectuals express their ideas.
I've been making web pages since 1995. At first it started merely as a practical way to get the work we were doing for MoonRock Software available to the masses. For over ten years I have been working in web development at Ajenda Interactive Media.
Here's a little doodle I made while watching the first of the 2000 presidential debates. Al Gore's official 2000 campaign song: Slip it to the Android by Chrome which I am rockin' out to as I type this.
Here are some pictures of my workspace from about 2000-2007, which was just a corner in my apartment. I work primarily as a woodcut printmaker. Of all the printmaking processes, woodcuts (relief prints in wood) are perhaps the least toxic. This means I can get away with doing my work in the confined space of an apartment. The process also requires very little in terms of equipment. A knife, wood, paper, an ink roller and ink are the only supplies one needs.
I've added some more art to my gallery under illustrations. These are a series of digital paintings I created for a self-promotional presentation for Ajenda Interactive Media. Here are some shortcuts to each of the images: Start, Approach, Profile, Strength, Experience and Next Steps.
My first in a series of posts about Election 2008. Your choice this year: a huge government liberal or a big government conservative—neither of which showed an ounce of leadership skill during the bailout crisis.
