Not Much To Say

I don't know if I have much to say today.  I've just ben working on some more drawings, combined with painting some patches and getting product ready for the new web shop, which will include a new website.  Still got to get my act together and send all the files and images to the web designer.  So lot's to do.  Feels good to be productive again, just gives a good feeling.  I guess that's all I got to say for now.  Enjoy the drawings, more ideas coming out.

My Obsession With Form and Balance

I seem to have a strange obsession with form and balance in the images I create.  No mater what I do I seem to always go back to them.  It’s like I have these rules for what makes something look good to me.  It’s hard to describe in words what these “rules” are, but when I look at them it just clicks in my head,  like drinking a cola when your thirsty and you make that “ahhhhh” sounds after…..it’s that feeling.  On the opposite side it makes it hard to create work with “mistakes”,  my brain doesn’t like it,  it doesn’t click.  How ever I’ve learnt that if I want to create art and not just design I’m going to have to embrace these mistakes,  cause art doesn’t have to be pretty.  Let me say that again…. art doesn’t have to be pretty.  This is a new revolution for me, cause I’ve always created pretty art,  but really I don’t have to.  I think it’s time to free my minds a little and break my own rules.  Forgive me if I cringe a little….I’ve slow to change.

Rework

Here are some new pieces that I've created.  Tried to do one with lot's of color and where the images I create over lap and pushed together. I don't know if the colors came out the way I wanted.  Have to work on that technic more.  The black and white pieces below it are the original piece and the reworked one.  They both have there charm....one is a lot rougher than the other.

Every Monday X Basco5

I recently did a illustration/design job for Every Monday Jewelry based out of Utah US.  I did four images that they could post to there instagram.  They game me total artistic freedom which worked really well for me. They have only posted one of the images so far so I can only share that one for now.  If your company is interested in hiring me for a similar project just hit me up.   Let's do something fun together

Icons Aand Places Of Work

I recently realised  that I'm going a bit in sain from working at home.  It seemed to work ok for the first few months after I started up again, but now, not so much.  I'm getting a strange form of cabin fever.  When your whole world becomes an apartment your bound to want human contact.  So I started searching for a studio.....and I think I found one!  It's a shared space with about 5 other creatives.  They seem like really nice people, and I get my own little corner/desk to be creative with.  I think it's going to be good for me, going some place, having a works space, and having some peers to chat and be creative with.  I've always worked best when I've had a studio......this is going to be good.  A new chapter, a new start.  I'm looking forward tot it:)

A Has Been

After 2 years away from art making, I've come to the realisation that in some ways I'm starting over. My creative network is pretty much gone, like a plant with no water it is now dried up and brown. It's only natural that this should happen, but at the same time it's a hard pill to swallow. I won't be getting any jobs out of the blue for a while, and posts on social media will not bring results, and suddenly being in a newspaper like back in the "wow it's street art!" days. I'm a voice talking to myself in a empty room. Time to start from the bottom. But perhaps this is a good lesson, humbling..... I am a hasbeen (has been something). So for the 10 people that read this...thought I'd share. They don't make life easy do they? and no one really mentions this stuff........
