We are all human, all the same species, all part of the same gigantic family.
By the way, I like your femurs!
This one is from 2013. I often post older works on Instagram, since many who follow me there are new to my work. But I should do the same on occasion here on the blog, since many of you may not have seen absolutely everything I’ve ever drawn :)
NEW 2019 CALENDARS ARE HERE! 3 of them!
8 x 11 inch WALL CALENDAR
Like the last 2 years, I’ve put together an 8x11 inch wall calendar. Each month is printed on an individual sheet of cardstock, and the whole calendar is held together with a silver binding clip. Put the current month in the front, remove individual pages and use them as prints, or display them however you want. OMG so much freedom.
16 x 20 inch BIG POSTER CALENDAR
For the first time I’ve created poster calendars! These are 16x20 inches, printed on archival, acid-free, durable matte paper. There are two to choose from: What to focus on, and Don’t forget to play.
Shop for calendars here.
P.S.: if you are buying these for Christmas presents, don’t wait too long. Allow plenty of time for shipping!
Coming soon....A 2019 Calendar! I’m just working out the final details.
What you see here is a mockup, printed out at home. I need to finalize the artwork, and go over everything with a fine tooth comb before I send it off to the printers.
I hope to have it available in my shop the next week or so. 🤞I’ll let you know once it’s ready ✨
A little while ago one of my drawings appeared (full page!) in Max Joseph, an arts magazine put out by the Bavarian State Opera. I am absolutely impressed that the an opera company is so well funded that it can put out a beautifully designed 100 page magazine. (And yes, they paid me to use the image.) You don’t see this in Canada, that’s for sure. Germany, you are amazing: you clearly VALUE the arts.
(the painting on the magazine cover is by Alex Sewell.)
… but only to the things that matter.
I keep seeing quotes and articles and manifestos that basically state “Say YES to adventure! Say YES to everything!”, and others that extoll “the power of saying NO” and “Saying NO gives you time and possibility”, and there’s lots of truth to all of these, but I found the above statement to be most helpful to me.
This drawing is available for sale here. Ink & watercolour, 8 x 10 inches.
I'm from Canada, not the US, so some may tell me to stay out of American politics. But many of the decisions made by Trump's administration affect the rest of the world, including (and especially) Canada. So I won't be quiet, or indifferent. Regardless, Obama's message is a universal one, and relevant to EVERYONE.
But hey, what's even better than writing about it on a blog is VOTING. If you are lucky enough to live in democracy, you have that power. So the next time there's an election where we live, whether it's at the municipal, county, provincial, state, or federal level, we need to get informed, get involved, and VOTE. It matters.
