"The Savage Garden (Slice)"

This little drawing will be in The 5th Annual Coaster Show at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery here in Los Angeles California. The show opens to the public tonight Friday September 1st.

I am really happy it was accepted and have it hanging among so many great artists. Artists who have been doing 'this' much longer than I have. Lowbrow.
The Savage Garden, a series that has been rolling around in my head for too long. Time to work it out and this show is a good start for me.

If you are wondering the show is based around art drawn, painted, sculpted, printed, mounted on a beer coaster.30

The Savage Garden Series

Ok, the beginning of a series. I am a ways away from really seeing anything serious but you have to start somewhere.
A couple of small paintings, mostly drawings in ballpoint pen, ink, marker. Some here, others I might post.
The idea has been percolating in my head for some time. Time to start fleshing  it out.
Hit this link to see the few others here on Avid Art 2.

Next post you will see why I should really get something a little more concrete down in paint. Well, I guess some studies first but getting it out of my head and down visually.29

Another LavaDog363 in progress

Digital, work-in-progress

OK- found something. One from the iPad Brushes app. A work-in-progress. That should put the pressure on to finish it. Or maybe not. Avid Art 2 is so informal I don't have to do anything, I think.

I had decided to do another version of LavaDog 363 form an earlier post. This designated as  -A.
Digital makes it easy to do other versions from saved ones. We'll see where this one goes. I certainly don't know as of now.

I'll try to get this finished sooner than later and start posting on a regular basis here again.28


I should probably paste, staple or nail up a new post. It has been too long. Although blogs are not frequented much these days... I'll take a look at what I have. I'm sure I've got something laying around.
