  • Art in the Time of Corona

    Here are two more of the paintings I started last year, but decided to improve with a little more painting experience under my belt. I only did minor improvements to the first one, but extensively repainted the second one. They're both acrylic paintings with a little bit of colored pencil too.

    I also made one minute videos of the different phases of the paintings to show how they progressed:

  • Dark (2017) - Spoilers and discussions

    Damn, that was good! I went through it faster than I would have liked because I was anxious to see how it turned out, but I think I'll first let it sink in a while, then rewatch season 3, then maybe just watch the whole thing all over again. I've tried out a couple of different podcasts, and it really makes me appreciate the insightful commentary we get from a good 'ole Bald Move deep dive. I would have loved to hear that for this show.

    Wow. It's just astonishing to me that people still refuse to do such a simple thing like wearing a mask.
  • Art in the Time of Corona

    It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's Bird Whisperer Project day! June was the Greater Roadrunner. Mine is black and white acrylic ink on toned paper with a touch of colored pencil.

    I have a bunch of new stuff I'll be sharing soon. I've been doing a lot of work and sent out for some test prints of them. I had planned to start posting a lot early in the month, but with the protests going on, it just felt wrong. So I've been quietly busy making stuff and will start posting it next week.

    The DragonCon 2020 drama is interesting to follow. I had written it off as not happening, but it looks like it might? Something about how the Con will go out of business if they cancel. And anyone following this thread since its inception can guess about whether or not I'll be going (my ticket was bought last year). It's very interesting. It's a microcosm of America as a whole.

    Edit: the con is in early September

    Wow, I had not heard that @JaimieT. I've never gone, but the community of artists I associate with the most is deeply involved with DragonCon and similar cons, and most have canceled well in advance. I think a lot of cons have or will go out of business, but it's hard to imagine they could pull off a show right now. Quite a few of my artist friends make most of their entire living off cons, and it's been a rough year for them. But almost everyone I know has said they wouldn't take the chance of doing one now even if they could.
