BLOG ENTRY Oct. 21st. 2014 Im feeling inspired to draw this week.
-Some weeks I wont draw at all, which when I think about it seems odd, Im clearly the kind of person who can see things and in a second can jot it down or get an idea on paper. A lot of times when the TV is off, or its late night and Im thinking, my brain races and I’ll get ideas, and this can kick start a creative process in the lab…. but some weeks can go by where I wont draw anything at all, it’s weird and I can’t explain it at all, I dont force it i just let it be… In any event this week in NYC its getting to be colder out and darker earlier, this is the time of year where I always switch gears and start to get settled into my studio time… This goes thru the winter till I get a break in the middle to go to Miami around Dec. or maybe Puerto Rico around the 1st or 2nd month of the new year… but for the most part I generally become the all nighter kind of studio painter where I stay up for days and days drink wine by the bottle, order tons of take out, listen to tons of music, and catching short naps here and there where I can… Weeks become a fuzzy blur at times and in some cases just not seeing sunlight for days in a row… I think Ive become used to this kind of lifestyle over the years and still find it hard to explain to normal people who would look at me like somethin’s gotta be wrong. In all honesty, it’s something I love and look forward to, straight zoning out for days and days feeling delirious sometimes even haha//, ill set up a new painting across the room and knock out, so when I wake up its the first thing I look at and try to view it fresh for the first time… It’s an amazing experience for me I hope some of you might experience one day for yourselves…
The point Im getting at is I can feel this energy building up inside me this week that I think will launch me into this indoor season over here very soon. Ive been drawing and painting a lot lately, much more than I regularly do, my brain just wont shut off and I have this urge to get it on paper or lose it forever….. I think Im making up for some lost time, this time last year my head wasn;t int he right place and I couldn’t focus on things.
I love scribbling, so here’s some sketches and some things Ive been messing with this week. Again, some other conceptual stuff I wont share but some fun stuff below….
The last couple pics I threw in are just some randoms to share. This isn’t your regular entry I guess. More things coming next week, hang tight and my next post will have some big updates I hope I can finally share…
BLOG ENTRY , Oct 17,2014 The Paddle 8 online Art and Collectable Auction.
The show is called Part of the Toy Tokyo: From the Archives Auction and it’s a display of items from Lev’s ( Toy Tokyo) private collection. I’ve known Lev for a long time, and he has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to investing in the right things/people, he just sees around the corner I like to say. This auction is all his creation and I’m happy to be able to say there’s a few of my pieces in there that have a chance to find a new collection. There is a lot of other incredible pieces in this auction as well. Have a look, and register is you see something you like, PADDLE8 is a very reputable Auction House that has been doing a lot of great things, show them your support.
Above is the master copy Bronze staue created from my Horselington Figure by Jeff Decker of Hippodrome Studios. We initially had plans to do about 5 of these but I changed gears and moved away from The Horselington character so this remains the single and only Bronze ever made. If you know anything about Bronze work, you know the history and legacy of Jeff Decker, if not use your Google skills. I was honored when he was so excited to do this. It’s unfortunate we never made more.
