Live Feed Tonight from The Sketchbook Project

I'm taking part in a group show that was organized by ArtHouseCoop in Atlanta, GA. They do great collaborative projects that connect artists from all around the world. You can read more about them on their website at http://www.arthousecoop.com/

Tonight they are broadcasting the opening of "The Sketchbook Project 4" from their gallery in Atlanta at 7pm at http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject/broadcast
Which is the first stop on this traveling show.

Below are some drawings that are in my sketchbook that I submitted for the show!

New Documentary "Herb & Dorothy"

Yesterday I listened to a story on CBC about "Herb & Dorothy". Instantly I was hooked and have to see the documentary. The story of an older couple, Herb a postal clerk and Dorothy a librarian, both under 5 foot, living in a 1-bedroom apartment in New York. Sounds ordinary enough, right? But, this couple is one of the most influential art collectors in Manhattan.

You have to check out their website www.herbanddorothy.com Where you can see pictures of the couple, their apartment, and their incredible art collection that they've amassed. On the website there is also the trailer for the documentary which is screening Sunday March 1st in Toronto at 4:00pm at the Al Green Theatre, Miles Nadal JCC, 750 Spadina Avenue.

When I grow up I want to be just like Herb and Dorothy.

Halo Halo ScreenPrinting

The new website of Toronto printmaker extraodinaire, Jeff Garcia, just recently hit the web. It promotes his up and coming show, Halo Halo Exhibition and Fundraiser, as well as his classes, printmaking co-horts, and his love of screenprinting. http://www.halohalo.ca/

I took his "Screenprinting for Illustrators" course and would highly recommend it. Jeff is a great instructor that encourages experimentation and pushing the limits of a medium. Fun Fun!

I was lucky enough to have my little screenprinted dolls featured on his website under the "Screenprinting for Illustrators 4" link.

New Drawings

Here are some new drawings and collages that I did about 2 weeks ago. I love the delicate line and gentle palette. I feel like the little characters, that my friend called corndog people, but their just bundled up in winter coats. The series is heavily influenced by Camilla Engman, my favorite Swedish Illustrator.
