Air B&Bs offer views and opportunities to paint in spaces you’d otherwise feel weird about treading upon. This one came out after many bodyslams and tears.
WHAT IT IS:
It’s book about a girl named Maven and Braun, her robot protector who by fate or design is kidnapped. Her and her friends come together to break him out but uncover a darker secret that could change the face of humankind.
AND IT’S ALSO:
Heart and soul baby. For the last several years that’s what I’ve been putting into this book. The story has been with me for a long time and now I’m releasing it into the electric wild. Thousands of hours for thousands of images make up this 168 page epic that will be released 3 pages weekly for a year. Crazy, huh? And it’s free! For now…
Crazier still is I’m planning a 200 page Kickstarter for a FULL COLOR print edition. Hoping to launch that badboy in January. So, if you like robots and girls, adventure and mystery…then you just might like this.
So please, follow along, spread the word and stayed tuned. I’ve got good stuff cookin’ in the kitchen.
Earlier this year we had a little excursion up north to Lummi Island. Really, an beautiful little getaway.
Our destination was the WILLOW’S INN restaurant. If you really like food as a form of art, then this is easily one of the most exciting places in the Northwest. We never had a chance to get over to NOMA when it was open but chef Blaine Wetzel was skilled enough to have worked there. And that skill continues to take advantage of the biosphere of the fertile island. With so many inventive approaches to using local grown land and sea items our palettes gave in to a symphony of flavors. After 19 courses I’d never felt better. Usually something like that is just too much. But the careful consideration of quantity and balance of ingredients ensured we weren’t suffering from overindulgence. And the service was impeccable.
Anyway, it’s also some great grounds for painting. 🙂
There’s some tension between the tree and the waterline. With landscape painting it’s your responsibility to make “adjustments” so that the end result shows what the hell you’re doing. Sure, it’s a little bit of editing and curating. But in the end it’ll make for a nice piece and your artist friends won’t give you hell for it.
Otherwise I’m mostly happy with how this turned out. Mostly.
