Finally starting work on some new ink drawings. I've been thinking about towers a lot lately. Here is a detail from an unfinished piece. It will probably look a lot different in a few days.

Also, figured out the problem with the camera. I need a telephoto lens. So hopefully that will help with some of the blur. Although I'm not sure if speed painting will garner enough interest to make it worth the extra effort. We'll see.

Teaser (a commission)

A full photo and hopefully a video will be forthcoming in the next week. Although, I may have to scrap the latter if the footage turns out to be low quality. It turns out it's kind of hard for me to film close up detail work...which is most of what this piece is. So, we'll see...

More of the same

Monotype above, lithograph below.

Mixed media ink painting. The blue/green/purple patches are actually hand dyed silk that I sewed onto the paper (so some of those lines are black thread).

Old prints and New Series

These two are from a series of prints I made several years ago. I had kind of forgotten about these and stumbled across them while looking for something else this week. Now, I'm trying to remember the process and wondering if I can re-create it in my basement.

Yay! I remembered...this type of print is called a monotype, and it probably is possible to do this in my basement (a lot of printmaking requires special machinery and equipment). On a related note, there is a version of Dante's Inferno with really cool monotypes by Michael Mazur.

These were inspired by Klimt.
These are a series of sketches I made recently. I think these would make nice lithographs. I'll probably have to settle for quill and ink. Which is less labor intensive, so I guess that's okay.

Homage to Munch.

And finally, just so there's some color, this is a lithograph I printed on hand (my hand) dyed silk.

Family Tree

These are some close ups from the "Christmas" project I've been working on, which is looking now, like it won't get done until Spring. :(

It's a family tree. Sorry for the poor photo quality, but the pencil drawing is very light.

Hopefully the finished version will be up sooner rather than later.
