My marker was fighting with me the whole way. It made some amazing lines and artifacts while trying to draw a simple line. Then I pressed and that blob happened. I ignored it and moved on.

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.

Yeah. An unexpected expense. Microwave died. Here’s my new studio companion reflecting the reorganization of my storage area. Durable goods seem to be back in inventory although not at normal levels. That's ok stay safe everyone.
Let’s heat something up!
That American Rescue plan check came in handy.
I'm happy to say that my Give Me a Hand pins are going out to my VoxBox and Whole Ball of Wax patrons today. These pins feature one of the drawings from my 600 Drawings project.

One of the 8 new drawings in my soon to be available artist book / zine. My 2021 Project is a series of downloadable, foldable zines. During the month of February I made the drawings. Some freaky weather held up my time to scan them and put them into the layout for printing. You can find out more and follow my process step by step at my Patreon account.

I started this post in January as I started to reconfigure the stusio for a new year of work. My energy was high and I began preparing a series of 6 x 6 panels for new ALLSORTS drawings.
For some reason I stopped after uploading the studio photo.
I just came back to this today after the year came to a screetching halt due to the Pandemic.
I haven't been to the studio in 4 weeks. That has been difficult. The work I wanted to do requires the studio space. Also the materials I need are there. So I have had to change course and do other work.
Last year's experiments that turned out to be 600 drawings. And those experiments are feeding a whole new series of ALLSORTS. Also a new series of works on paper and sculptural drawings.
Here's new work in the studio at the end of last month. I'm be working on them again after hanging and opening my show at HBHQ.
Lots new to share in 2020. It's gonna be a great art year.
