Check out the new sketches page on this blog for more hot from the hand mock ups and thoughts. I havent been doing much computer stuff lately- just trying to keep my hands on drawing out quick fast and honest ideas to see where they lead.

I’ve been searching for creative points of inspiration and came across compelling female artists with long careers such as Ida Applebroog and Barbara Norfleet. I hope to be able to keep doing my thing for as long as they have. Hell, Ida is 85 yrs old this year and still showing new shit. lol

I will say that i didnt think i’d ever get into abstraction, line and form like I have recently, but I think it reflects my mental exasperation with trying to make everything MEAN something. You know? Anyways let’s see where it all goes.

I’m attracted to the simple thoughts that come from little images like Norfolk’s below. the relationship between these 2 people (characters) says alot simply through location and attire. Most of us want our work to be picked up on a deep level with light effort in such a manner right? it can be hard to force, and surprising to capture.

More to come-
