Heart Shaped Brain

Here's a little piece I made for the "Love me, love me not" show at the Von Common here in Missoula. The Show reception is from 6-10 on Friday the 1st. It will be an evening of readings, performances, art, and fermented liquids. Should be a fun time!

inspiration collection

I recently decided to turn my tumblr site into a space where I collect art and imagery that feel personally important to me. I've always wanted to be better at documenting the things that keep me inspired and excited, and this feels like a good way to do it. This is a Kwakiutl Bear dancer photographed in 1914 by Edward Curtis in British Columbia.

afternoon drawing storm

I had a little down time this afternoon, so I decided to start an Art Zine. I haven't self-published anything in a few years, and I'm excited to get back into it. I'm also slowly working on a number of new woodcuts, which should make their way to my Etsy shop soon.

Anasazi study

Years back I was hiking in Southern Utah and saw this painting left by the Anasazi indians up on the cliffs in the distance. I decided to climb up to them and get a closer look. The figures turned out to be as tall as me. This is one of the photographs I took that day. I recently drew directly on top of a color copy of it as a way to study the shapes. Sometimes drawing feels like it's an extension of my sense of touch. Drawing on top of images I want to get to know better helps me find a way inside, so I can understand it in my own way. This drawing is pinned up in my studio.
