It was another busy weekend creating art. Such is the life of an extreme freelancer. It's all good. Art makes me happy.
Untitled, 2011, 16" x 20", acrylic on canvas. I was bad, I know I was supposed to leave those acrylics alone. But they are so damn seductive. I did a simple - but not easy - color blocking work. I'm really loving blue.
Detritus Robot, 16" x 20", cut paper. The idea for this work came about as I was cleaning up the yard. Again. The litter in the neighborhood keeps getting worse and worse. Beer bottles, wine bottles, fast food wrappers, cigarette wrappers everwhere! I wished I had a robot to clean up the mess. And here she is. I think she'd make a great vinyl toy.
I wish I were a video artist. I'd make a video of her. I can see her movements, her head kind of moves back and forth like a metronome. She makes a ticking noise when she moves. I started working on a graphic novel about the adventures of this robot happily cleaning up the ghetto. I know, I'm a bit crazy. And it's not like I don't have two million other projects to work on. And, yes, I'm an insomniac. Want more crazy characters? Here's a fun flickr group devoted to this topic (link).
