Process of Procrastination

I’ve been procrasta-working lately and in the midst of it got hip to the app Splice via Kasumi. I went to film school at a time when to many students caused the Avid to crash, Final Cut Pro had only really just come out, and all of my films were on 3/4 tapes if not on actual film reels. It still blows my mind I can do editing on my phone with ease. I decided to play around and made this little time-lapse of a work on paper.

Of course, I didn’t get to finish it because what you can’t see if my cat booping my elbow the entire time! I had to stop at scratch his butt.

It is my first painting of 2018


In other news, I’m so thrilled that my painting “Outcast” has made another cover! This time it is literary magazine, The Journal. They also did a very in-depth interview and you can read it over here.





Biomorpic Progress Shots

I’ve been busy working on paintings for my solo show in November. Here are some sneaky peeky shots of the progress. I’ll admit it, I have no idea what I’m doing and these are very far off from the initial sketches I did.

Arctic Circle to Kiev

A little out of my comfort zone, and I decided to go with a loose look to these. Part of a series of illustrations I’m working on for an upcoming publication; all locations from the Arctic Circle down to Kiev, and then some. It’s rough when you are trying to illustration something you haven’t actually seen the text for, either!

These are all 10×8″ oil on panel.




Science and Surrealism

A few books I’m reading, and some paintings I’m painting.






The irony is not lost on me that I went in for a consultation about an elective surgery, and now, it’s turned into a very needed oncology surgery — all while prepping for this show. It’s been a sucky week thus far, and yet I’m not bothered by pictures of anatomy and cadavers. I don’t know what else to do, really.
