I pulled out my pan gouache set this week. Gouache is a watercolor that has white in it so that it’s opaque. It usually comes in two forms: tubes and pans. The pans are dry little circles of paint that you have to wet in order to use. You’ve seen them. They make them for […]


I dug out a bunch of old paintings this week. I tend tuck things away in boxes and in cabinets and there they sit for years only to be taken out and looked at on occasion. This box has a lot of small gouache and watercolor paintings in it. The sizes are from around art […]


In deciding what to write about this week I dug through a box of old drawings. I’ve got lots of boxes of old drawings. Some of the boxes are store bought and some of them are homemade. My fanciest store bought box is an 11x17x4 inch aluminum box. I don’t remember how much that one […]


This week I went through a drawing burst. I made nine new working drawings on six by nine inch sheets of paper. They’re all about the same size but don’t all have the same proportions.

This week I’m taking a look at a faux comic book cover that I did back in August. The date on it is August 10, 2017. That’s the day I finished it. The date on my stuff is always the day I finish something but that doesn’t tell you when I started or how long […]


It’s time to pull out some old work and do some art writing. This week I grabbed a binder off my shelf that holds a bunch of my paintings on paper. It also has some ink drawings from when I was first learning how to draw directly in ink with no underdrawing. As proof of […]


It’s that time of year again when the summer is ending so I thought I’d recap my summer TV watching. It was an odd year for me and summer TV since there were not a lot of broadcast TV shows that I watched this summer. A few of them even started in late August so […]
