splotchy inks that make you think

Here’s a peek at the ink that’s been flowing recently. As you can tell, Joann Sfar has been big on my mind recently.



So what’s new with me? Well, I recently picked up an illustration gig here in the Upper Valley. I can’t talk too much about it yet, but I’ll let you know how it pans out. There’s a pretty quick turn around on the project, so I should be able to share that with you soon.

Besides that, I’m currently working on 3 stories for an anthology project here at CCS. The anthology that I’m working on with my fellow students revolves around a time travelling delivery service. Each of the stories will be about the delivery of a particular item that plays an important role in the course of history. No fancy time logic here, just a simple premise and solid, whole hearted storytelling.

I’m looking to have the stories done by early December, one revolves around Yves Klein, another around Shodo, and another around chinese latticework. I’ve really been enjoying researching the three. I’m excited to what the sum of our efforts together is going to allow for us to create, especially the packaging.

Finally, as usual, I want to share some music with you. Earlier this week I came across the following video that juxtaposes Stan Brakhage’s experimental silent films, Dog Star Man, with Boards of Canada’s Music Has the Right To Children. There are some really nice moments of synchronicity. Makes for some really nice background noise visually and musically while drawing.
