  • Sheltering-in-Place: Day 214

    Haramore and Patadon made another appearance today. This is not uncommon. They visit me frequently, I just don't talk about them often. I really needed them to be on their way, though, so this drawing happened.

    Rest in power, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. I hope we live up to your expectations.

    It's been a few days since her passing. It's time to keep fighting for equality for all, liberty for all, and justice for all.

  • Sheltering in Place: Day 179

    Granted, I have no idea what goes on inside the head of any alpaca, sheared or otherwise. This majestic beast, however, was giving off all sorts of possible emotions.

    “Johnson Eziefula...is a self-taught artist, who expresses himself in a technique he calls contemporealism—a coinage from contemporary art and hyperrealism....”

    Kayla May shows us deeply personal iconography in bright colors. She combines not only cartoon and graffiti styles with realism but mixes her mediums as well. This work is colorfully and graphically forceful. Her content bridges the personal and the political. It's fun, and it's hard. Seek her out. It's worth it.

    I needed an illustrator today to make sense of the [expletive deleted] nature of the world right now. I found Acetheartist and his Boogie Wrld, where we are encouraged to create our own lane. I have so much respect for this concept and philosophy. It's what I needed. I hope it's what you need, too.
  • Sheltering-in-Place: Day 156

    A couple days ago, I learned that a friend from high school died suddenly. All of the people we have in common seem to have been notified, so I think it's okay for me to talk about it here now. No, I'm not going to use her name. I am going to reminisce a bit, though. This will be disjointed and non-chronological, just FYI.

    Fowokan's sculptures are sometimes realistic, sometimes stylized, and always alive.
  • Sheltering-in-Place: Day 141

    This is a sketchbook entry that I revisit less often than I should. Every few years I write something like this to myself.
  • Sheltering-in-Place: Day 138

    I'm relieved that Shantay Robinson talked about how varied Daphne Arthur's work is so that I can focus on how friggin' haunting it is.
  • Self-Portraits of the Apocalypse

    I spent the first 100 days of my area's shelter-in-place order making a digital drawing a day, give or take, and a blog post to go along with the art. It kept me making art. It kept me thinking. It kept me posting things on social media as a way to reach out and communicate. It also helped to keep me, I dunno, sane (?) through all of this weirdness that is the not-exactly-United-right-now States' response to the coronapocalypse.

    In order to keep things organized and easy to find in the future, here's a list that links to each of the blog entries.

  • Sheltering-in-Place: Day 131

    Kimlayn is currently an LA artist with a background in fashion. Her paintings bring Matisse to mind, with large blocky areas of color and an interest in form. As always, I invite you to go check out her work where she keeps it.
