Push Peace

Back in the late 60’s and early 70’s I did some rock art posters … wish I had done more. These days the posters I create a few times a year are for social causes. I firmly believe you’ve got to give back.

There is an orchestrated PR campaign underway to foment hate, division and fear … don’t fall prey to these dark puppeteers and their big media lackeys. Find something to like about everyone, find something to agree on … open the lines of communication – our greatest weapon against these merchants of chaos.

A Twinkle in the eye … imagination and creation … the essence of living.

Connection

An aptly named piece because it got the highest number of Instagram likes over the last week. I’m never really sure what will be “popular” and what will not be. It’s probably a good thing because, if I ever figured it out, I might be tempted to follow the formula. My art is my personal communication; if it connects with you, we’ve had a moment. When I was a college Art student I used to say I didn’t care what people think about it – I created it for myself … that’s silly; why would I bother to put it down on paper or canvas if I didn’t care to connect?

Jim Carrey’s Art

I Needed Color An inspiring video about Jim Carrey’s most recent creative direction. I was amazed to see a stupid critical review of his work in the GUARDIAN. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised but sometimes the asinine natter of critics still manages to shock me.

Sometimes my drawings border on cartoons. These are usually my least favorite but I post them anyway because a lot of people seem to like them … beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I prefer the simple, clean lines of much of my other work.

Swan

A throwback to my roots of simple pen and ink drawings. Every once in a while I think it’s a good idea to drop the color and hone my skills with line, form, positive and negative space.

Surrounded

Sometimes the significance of a piece – for me – comes to me after I draw it and name it. In this case I realized I had drawn a picture of the drastic change from bachelorhood to having a wife and her daughter living with me. It’s all good; they are sweethearts … just a drastic change )))
