I always keep some folded sheets with me — some in my bag, drawing kits, and of course studio. I can make a book anytime. I had this sheet of orange Canson in my bag for months. I kept taking it out and then putting it away.

I’m excited to share the news of a grouping of Rondos acquired by one of my collectors.
I’ll be adding hanging cleats and a template for the proper hanging as a vertical piece. Still working toward names for each. I’ll document the process at Patreon and share it with my patrons.

I'm getting the packages ready for my Vox Box and and Whole Ball of Wax patrons. Each will receive a copy of this art conspiracy between poet David Zimmer and myself. David was inspired to write a poem in response to each of eight drawings I created for my Foldable Dispatches project, a set of limited edition small artists books/zines.

These are an example of the original works that I offer my patrons.

I made this drawing a while back and rediscovered this week. I'm experimenting with this limited palette and basically making small drawings that will lead to larger drawings.
I'll be posting more images and thoughts for patrons only.

On my ello profile, a social network, I share some of my work. I love it because you can present your image as you intended and viewers can see it LARGE.

I'm happy to share this short video that gives you an idea of what my Foldable Dispatches books look like after they are printed, folded, and cut. This video is of the third book in the collection. Egyptian Waters. These books are very simple for you to make once you download them. I even have a video to show you how.

My latest acquisition. A mall pit fired ceramic sculpture by Philadelphia Artist Marguerita Hagan. From her Rongorongos. This is the smallest of the series it is about 5 inches tall.

The Rongorongo shout out a once diverse and abundant life on the Pacific Island. The thriving Rapanui culture and its lush landscape fell to devastating deforestation. With restoration at work today, the island of Rapanui in all of its mystery leaves a clear and profound message.

I’m excited to announce my year-long project for 2021 — a small single-sheet artist book/zine collection. This collection will be available to all patrons including the $3/month Studio Journal level. It’s like buying me a cup of coffee each month.

Inspired by numerous single sheet artist's books out in the universe, I have decided to make works that can be digitally shared with my patrons and collectors. I will be creating at least one single-sheet art book each month.
