Strange occurrences…

By on Jan 17, 2022

  This weekend some strange things happened that I can’t exactly explain. I’m trying to lock them away in the memory vault but they keep nagging at me. On Saturday we all left the house together to grab a quick lunch and pick up a few groceries. We weren’t gone very long, anywhere between an hour and an hour-and-a-half. When I was bringing in the groceries I walked around the table and kicked something on the floor. I put the bags down and looked to see what I kicked. There was a coffee mug on the floor. It was clean with nothing in it. I picked it up and told my youngest to not leave stuff like that on the floor and she just stared back at me blankly. A few hours later I was in the kitchen cooking and my wife came around the table and kicked something. She too kicked a mug that was on the floor in the same spot. Different mug, but it was in the same place the...

Speaking of Sleep…

  I don’t know why but I’ve been really leaning into esoteric rituals and olde timey magics lately. I made black eyed peas for New Year’s, I’m back to quiet meditative drawing and I’ve even been taking vitamins. Not to mention, I’m starting to really embrace this whole sleep thing. I haven’t been drawing as much but I’m feeling pretty good.     I’m getting back into drawing but not like I was for a while there. I think I lost focus for a while but honestly that is just a bunch of navel-gazing. I’m trying to balance things out a little better. I made some big steps last year when it came to KnitDog and with those steps came some reevaluation. I’m still working through that but I’m making some progress. It’s that question I always struggle with, “What is an artist and am I really...

I’ve been sleeping on this…

I bought an Apple product and received 6 free months of Apple Music. I wasn’t really interested but figured I wouldn’t let it go to waste so I activated it. I first started building a playlist on my phone and I was surprised when I opened my computer to find the playlist was also ready to listen to there. It was pretty neat but not that impressive, I’ve been using Spotify and that basically does the same thing. Then last night I was at the gym and didn’t want to listen to the limited music I have on my phone. I remembered the new Silk Sonic album dropped and I have been obsessed with “Leave the Door Open” so I opened iTunes and sure enough it was there, no ads, just ready to go. I have to say I am totally on board now. It really was nice to be able to access anything. I’ve run into the problem on Spotify where musicians I like don’t have...

Bottle caps that keep me going…

By on Nov 24, 2021

  It’s been a weird couple weeks. I’ve really been in a funk since Mighty Con. I’ve been putting alot of thought into my art and where I want to go with it. I think I’m going to step away from stickers for a while. In all honesty I’ve really been stepping away from just about everything lately. I haven’t been drawing or anything. Well that’s not entirely true…     The bottle cap thing has been the only thing I’ve been working on at all. I really like making them and they are turning out pretty neat. I kind of know what direction I want to go with them, which is Gravity Falls related, but I just don’t have alot of motivation right now. I’ve broken out the sketchbook a couple times but never got around to actually drawing anything.     It’s not due to a lack of ideas. I have one particular...
