Death of Poseidon

I whipped this up for School33’s Lotta Art fundraiser on April 21, 2012. It’s another pen and ink drawing on canvas and hangs inside a box. I’ve been hankering to work on canvas lately and this is a warm up for a bigger piece. It’s 2.5′ x 1′.

Deathly Repose of Poseidon

Even Gods yield to time. This diorama shows Poseidon’s deathly repose at the bottom of an anchovy tin among the shipwrecks deep in the Dead Sea.

A Persistence of Memory

So. There’s a really big art show at work later today and I submitted this piece – a triptych called A Persistence of Memory. The three dioramas are connected, and there’s more detail about each one in previous posts: Suspense, The Clock and A Good Death. Note: I added a couple of images to The Clock post showing the finished base.

I  earned an honorable mention AND I’ve found a very effective way display dioramas in a public space.

Where…to…next?

The End of the Road

Fuel for thought: all roads are connected, with the exception of those separated by oceans. Therefore, all roads ultimately end at the same place.

This grackle has found the end of the road.

More viewfinder fun on the way!

ArtScape 2010

More than 350,000 people were expected to attend this year’s ArtScape, now in its 29th year and the biggest yet. ArtScape is America’s largest free Art festival and generates more than $25 million in revenue. Every year, the citizens of the east coast unite to collectively bake our brains under an atomically hot sun.  Here are some pics from this year.

My kids and I made circus peanut shirts using left over paint from the giant peanut.

There is something really cool about watching people hug art. I watch a guy actually LICK the circus peanut, but couldn’t get my camera out in time. There are no teeth marks. Yet.

I received some much needed Art Therapy on the Charles Street bridge from Cocoa, while Leezle manned the phone.

The girls and I visited our comics at the Comic Strip exhibit at Penn station (previously discussed).

Here’s the Midway banner on the Charles Street bridge.

The girls illustrated messenger bags at the Target tent.

The art cars were amazing, as was the air guitar exhibition.

I tried to glue circus peanuts to the Throne of Glory, but it was in constant use.

Me and my baked brains.

Here are a few of my favorite Sondheim finalists in the Fox building gallery.

Here, There, Anywhere.

I’m sad it’s over, and relieved everything went well. Now it’s back to the drawing board.
