Guitar Man (just about finished)



"Guitar Man"
18"x24"
Collage on paper

This is finished at the moment. I'll need to dive back into this in a couple of weeks to make sure everything is looking just the way I'd like it. I've found that whenever I work on a piece, I spend so much time hovering over it that I can't really notice my mistakes that well. Setting this aside will help quite a bit.

Lulu the Dachshund

Here's a collage from the past--I did this collage a couple years ago as a gift for Ben. I finally got around to getting a decent picture of it and now it's hanging in our new apartment.

Featured in ARTzineonline's galleries

I'm getting over a cold and have been busy busy with my two jobs. However, I think this weekend's forecast will involve plenty of art making.

In other news, ARTzineonline has kindly added me to its artist galleries section.

Updated Website

I've been busy trying to get a grasp of the marketing side of things. I recently redid the layout of my website so that it would be a little more user-friendly and includes a logo I designed. I'm also doing a bit of research about how I can use the web as an artist. I'm planning on working on some more artwork soon, so keep checking back--there will be more.
