We will be near the main stage around 3441 Adams Ave. There’s no fee for the event and between the music, food, art and beer garden, should be hard not to have a good time. Come say hello and grab some Trekell goodies, get some food and watch local bands play. Don’t forget your sunscreen! Looking forward to seeing anyone who can make it out!

Seahorses!

Working on a big seahorse themed piece for an exciting project, so there have been many seahorse studies lately. Plus, the more I read about them, the more fascinating they are. A quick heads up that I will be exhibiting at Wondercon in downtown Los Angeles in a few weeks with a couple very special brand new…items available for purchase. Secrets, secrets! I’ll have more Wondercon info soon, but for now, know that I’ll be on the corner, at booth #341, along with the good guys at Yesterdays pins.

For now, enjoy “Abyssal.”

Color.

Been really enjoying this series of work which hinges on the abstract and spontaneous nature of ink flow and other suspended pigments within water on a paper surface. There’s a real joy to only give the mildest direction to the flow of inks on the paper and adjust to the random delightful forms that result. Then it’s a matter of building up washes into thicker layers of acrylic paints but still leaving the wash elements, with all their hard edges of ink blooms to take on various errata textures. I can, and have, just spend hours working on these pieces.

For now, enjoy “Dissociative Qualities of Memory.”
