Lunar Boy Road Trip

Nothing like a robot on a wire to get me going. This drawing reminded me of so many lame paperback science fiction books from the sixties and seventies that my dad used to read, and at the same time underground comics. I very much want to do more with these. Let me know what you think of them, and also let me know what your favorite science fiction book covers are. Mine is the old school cover to "I,Robot".
Here are a couple of the birds that I am thinking of using in the helmet and head phone series. I saw a lady downtown who was doing these huge oils on canvas that basically looked like these vignettes on a massive canvans. The branches took up the whole surface, but the birds were tiny, and low and behold placed in the golden mean.........Hmm. I bet that woman went to art school.

This weekend I am driving down to Astoria to trade out some of the images that are hanging there with some of the newer bird paintings. Trading out the paintings will be cool. I think the bird paintings are the creme of my work so far, and hopefully others will agree, but the best thing about going to Astoria is that I get to go on a sweet drive through the country and I will not be in city limits for two whole days. Now that is a beautiful thing.

I'm going to take down a disk with jpgs of everything I am taking too, so I will let you all know when Lunar Boy's website is updated and you can buy some new paintings.

Until then Rock out with your Asimov Out.
Be well.

Some New Plans etc.

First off, I am planning on a new series of birds in seemingly regular situations with helmets on. Hopefully I can put together an entire show worth of them. It will be the "Terrified of Flight" show and I would of course have to play all 764 Hero during the opening. I think it is a cool message though.....thoughts?

Second, here are the plans for the first piece that I want to construct in a box. Joseph Cornell style. I might start subbing birds for the robot though. I don't know. I may try to get Camwyn to help me with it, when I move back east.....I'll buy the Guinness?

And here is a painting that I am sending to my parents tomorrow. It won't stick to the fridge or anything, but I was thinking about it and absolutely missing the days of drawing weird stuff and seeing it up on the fridge. In fact when I go home now there are still drawings my brother and I did on the fridge. So cheers mom and dad!

Dusk - the bird
on the fence
A contemporary of mine

It has been way too long since I've posted anything on the blog, so here are a couple things that are going on.

1.) The new website is in the works. Expect it by the end of the year.

2.) I am looking at grad school in the northeast. Soon I will be able to write grants and get the government to pay for my supplies and time.

3.) I've started to do some quieter work, which I will be posting a little at a time in the next couple weeks. Sort of like the haiku piece at the top.
