June Artist Trading Cards

I am slowly getting my myself into the studio more- I like when I feel like I have my rhythm back.  It has taken some time but I am almost caught up on my art collaborations.  I completed my Artist Trading Cards for June.  I find these still to be such fun. The theme was the color blue.  The backgrounds are cut up Gelli prints.

A Fun Postcard Collaboration.

I was in a very fun postcard collaboration with my three art pals.  John Arbuckle, Brian Kasstle, and Tom LaBadia,  We each started with 4 postcards from where we are from.  Then they made the rounds until all had worked on them.  Because Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox are a very big thing here in Bemidji I picked postcards that featured them.  The next challenge will be to decide who gets which ones.

Sometimes Life is Hard

It has been a long time since I posted last.  Much has happened- it has been hard for me to get in the studio some times.  Last month my brother was diagnosed with lung cancer- he had one lobe removed- I flew out to be with him for the surgery and for a few days afterwards.  Nothing like a wake-up call to be living the life you want now cause all we have is this moment right now.
I am very behind on several art collaborations but I am making progress.  Here is a set I completed with Scott Hall and Carol White.  The first panel Scott did the top and Carol did the middle and I finished it with the bottom.  The next one Carol did the top- I did the middle and Scott did the bottom.  The last one in this series had me on top and Scott in the middle and Carol did the bottom.
