Portraits

I got busy with my day job and didn’t have time to post much art over the last few months. But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t still making art! Here are some semi-recent portraits.

The Scratch Papers, Page 105: “A Grift for Salami”

Made around the same time as my “Gift for Salome” bust, so I figured I’d give it a similar name. Paper Mache, acrylic; 2010. More Scratch Papers.

“I Am an Amanuensis” 74: Audrey Niffenegger

“‘Being in love is … anxious […]. Wanting to please, worrying that she will see me as I really am. But wanting to be known. That is … you’re naked, moaning in the dark, no dignity at all … I wanted her to see me and to love me even though she knew everything I am, and I knew her.’” Audrey Niffenegger, Her Fearful Symmetry. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2009. Page 277. Amanuensis –noun.  A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. More “I Am an Amanuensis.”

Family Art

Here’s a couple of new pieces. First, a portrait of our good buddy Kasia, her hubby Shane and their new baby Lydia. Happy Birthday Kasia! Second, I found an old high school drawing by my sister, Abby, which I cleaned up and colored. Girl power!

Wait, Is It Beer Week Again Already?

Actually, I had no idea there even was such a thing, but my friends at Track 7 asked me to make a flyer for their upcoming Beer Week events!

Also, here’s a nice article about Track 7 from Sacramento Press that mentions the art created by Skinner and myself for Track 7 beer labels. Update: Here’s another article on Track 7 in Submerge Magazine.
