Cat on my Stuff

It has been a long time since I took the time to paint my loved kitty, Samara. Observing her sitting on an unsorted pile of  junk mail inspired me to paint these two watercolor sketches. After all, it was a really good excuse for putting off sorting those bills and advertisements just a bit longer.

I’m Ok with This. Watercolor and ink on illustration board. 2.5″x3.5″ (6.4cmx8.9cm).

Ghosts of Christmas

I painted the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Yes, that is me as Marley.

NSFW

NSFW means “not safe for work”. It is often used as a way to label images of naked people. I agree that nudes are not safe work. In fact, looking at anything that isn’t related to work while at work is not safe to be doing when your boss walks in. Even Hello Kitty is not safe for work. I do not agree with the fact that more art shows, galleries, and websites are refusing to exhibit depictions of nudes. The contemporary art world is becoming more conservative than the Catholic church. They’ve had public displays of nudes for hundreds of years.

The following images are NSFW, but they are safe for home, teenagers, and any toddlers you may have looking over your shoulder. You know why? Because they are art. Stop being such a fuddy duddy.

It Takes Two to Tango

There are two main components to being an artist. The first is obviously creating art. The second is the one that I, and many other artists, struggle with. The second is promoting your art.

I’ve been spending the past month focusing on the promotion of my work. It certainly has been paying off. I have my first solo exhibition at the Ocean City Arts Center March 2012. My drawings are now on sale at the Noyes Museum of Art’s gift shop. Currently, my work is showing in three group shows. People are posting my works in their tumblrs and pinterests. It feels good to be appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Thank you for taking the time to tell others about my work. It means the world to me.

Unfortunately, as I’ve been promoting my work, the time for creation of work has diminished. Illustrations like the one above are all I’ve had time to paint. Hopefully within the next week or so I’ll be able to make a serious painting.

Just because I’ve never seen a machine elf, doesn’t mean I don’t believe.

Always Sunny

When I’m in the suburbs, I paint tall buildings. When I’m in the city, I paint park scenes. I don’t get it either.

Below is another painting of Rittenhouse Square. Philadelphia in late summer makes me smile.
