Mixed Media Mongolian



They aren't drawings, more sewing actually. These pieces have paper from Argentina, Japan, and Mongolia (the postage stamps) and also feature rubber stamp marks based on West African designs. They are two separate cards encased in clear contact paper that has been sewn together with red thread and fashioned so the piece can sit up like an icon. Color versions below. I prefer the black and white but the color versions show the rubber stamps.

I would like to draw the black and white versions and I think they would make cool wallpaper.

Daily Art

I didn't draw today, I sewed. I sewed scraps from an old scarf onto cards and then scanned them. I may draw one tonight and post later. I may not.

Agdash Final

This is another drawing based on a photograph taken by Barry Watson whose blog Upper Clyde Shipping is a must for boatspotters. The next boat drawing will likely be WARRIOR III, one of the tugs that operates in the upper Clydeside.

Stuffed Mice

Rodent Taxidermy doesn't get much better than this. Mousy heads, tails, and everything in between mounted on cherry, walnut, and peeling plywood.

At the Web site that published these images they make money not art, but I try to do both.

Heart of Gold - Mennonite Farmer

This is a Mennonite farmer dude who I accidentally aged about 30 years. The drawing was based on a gorgeous photograph featured in Félix Curto's solo show at La Fábrica Galerí in Madrid. Check out the original image at We Make Money Not Art.

Mustang Driver's Seat - Unfinished

Horsehide and Chrome.
This Mustang interior featured cowhide seats but there was so little of that visible in the photo that I focused on the dials and dashboard. Who doesn't love a high performance automobile?

I found the photo from which I based this drawing on a South African auto blog. The Mustang is popular all over the world as an Iconic American Muscle Car.

Vroom, vroom!


They can't all be winners.

A gimpy foot is a drag.
