Happy International Women's Day (over the weekend) everybody. I have no idea what that holiday is or how to celebrate- take today's Sweet Nothing as an example- it kind of sort of celebrates the holiday, right? And WOW! I've made it 50 days into Sweet Nothings. Keep coming back.
Recently took a trip to the Jacksonville Zoo and saw an inspiring display of arousing Baboon butts. So, I did this fun number in celebration?
Also, wow, it's been two months now of Sweet Nothings. 2 out of 12, slowly but surely we're getting there. I showcased the first 40 SNs in Savannah this month. They were quite the conversation starters. I'm looking forward to the end of the year show when there's a room of full of these puppies.
Until then, keep checking here for your daily dose.
March will start up on Monday.
Today my Sweet Nothing is borrowing from a pose I first masterfully crafted for Fist City's Volume 2 zine. Look below for a detail of "Playboys" and a detail of "Chair" from the aforementioned zine. Fist City co-founder Lomaho Kretzmann produces some cool stuff in his own studio practice AND he also helped me stretch all the paper that these Sweet Nothings are on. Peep his work here: http://lomaho.tumblr.com/
Pretty busy today so I had very little time to do this lil guy. Quite literally this is the first thing I drew. Sometimes I have a plan before I draw these, but in this case I just had to go with it due to the time constraints... so, here it is, an entry into my subconscious, kind of.
Welp, Instagram sure was fast to remove posts, AND apparently they're equally fast at deactivating accounts too. So, that ends the 3 week long journey of Sweet Nothings on Instagram :( I guess there's always the lawless land of Tumblr of which I'm very unfamiliar. But maybe they'll have me. Of course, I'm always at home at my own site, so, consider subscribing to my RSS feed- though I'm not really sure what that means for you or myself.
Only 21 days in and I've already been stripped of an audience. I've grown dependent on all these endorphine-rich "likes" and "followers" that social media provides. Their removal has left me feeling neutered; sure, I have some of the tools, but no real power! So, make a poor boy feel LIKE A REALLLLL MAN and like ME. Like and comment to your heart's desire (right now I'm averaging a robust 1 like for every post, fingers crossed I can push that to 2). Share the page even. Tell a friend. But at the very least, enjoy the continued Sweet Nothings.
Sliding this one in right before midnight. Tuck yourselves in and take in the Belgian.
Come on out to "The SKETCHBOOK SHOW" at Ashmore Gallery this Friday. Conceived by Justin Harris and Lomaho Kretzmann, the show is the perfect answer to a public eager to enjoy and collect art without spending more than a handful of Washingtons. Last year the show was a big hit, and this year they've amped up the artists list and are taking over three floors of the Ashmore Gallery.

Check out my work in person... but if you really can't wait... I've posted a few of the sketches below. Also if you find yourself getting the shakes and need a bigger selection of sketchbook art to settle you, you can always checkout the "Sketches" section of my portfolio. Until next time my dear friends-
