Creating Ads

     I'm working out the magazine content and I think the first publication is in October. Thereafter, in January, April and July. I've an assignment to complete a stop motion ad, which I'll share here. I've done a few in recent years but I'm a newbie, so I hope I do it justice.  I submitted a Facebook ad today of the video in this post. I hope to do a stop motion for the site over the summer. It's going to be a busy one too. I've been scrounging for energy this weekend, so it looks as if I'll...

New Work, New Lifestyle and Faith Ringgold

Interestingly enough, I'm two weeks on the vegan path and I found myself with a vicious cold that hit me on Sunday. I'm about 75% today but gee wee, it was rough! I pushed myself to complete a piece through it all. About two years ago, I was visiting my acupuncturist to relieve me of some health issues and because I eventually resorted back to die-hard eating habits that didn't benefit my overall health, the problem resurfaced. I've gone a step further in adapting to a vegan lifestyle. Outside of this cold, I feel great. My energy is up, I sleep...

2020

I've rearranged some things on the site and added a piece today. The 8 x 8 resin prints on wood will be in the category of souvenirs instead of prints. I think it would be wise to not add anymore categories since there are 7 now, which give the layout an odd finish. As far as my work, no more categories but as I type this, I could add a category for videos and another for something fun but I'm not sure what.                                   ...

Untitled No. 2

It's a rainy day in Georgia. That being said, I won't be cutting wood in my extended studio today, which is the garage. I am, however, conceptualizing my promo, which will be a combination of stop motion and still photos.  So here's the direction... I'm a 70s kinda chiq. I'm stuck there. I have so many memories of growing up during that time. And not that my work is autobiographical. It was just the best of times. I tend to reflect on my southerness, if you will but the more I flip through my sketches, everyone looked so 70ish in...

Reflecting to Move Forward

Reflecting to Move Forward

But I Like This Hairstyle is an earlier work I created after discovering my artistic voice. That voice will change sometimes, though for me, not significantly. I won't share much about those changes but I'm excited about the direction or angle my work will take. I will continue to inject humor, as seen in the painting. There is a similar piece I've started the pattern on called, Getting the Juice. When I say pattern, I mean the paper cut-outs for the wood that will ultimately have to be cut. I've not done anything on paper in some time and my hope is...
