The Fray "Busted!" Issue #1 out now!

Fray is a quarterly of true stories and original art.

This is the cover of Issue #1 of the new print quarterly of Fray. Fray is about true, personal stories and original art. It's a themed book and comes out 4 times a year. This issue is about getting busted or caught in the act and has turned out really beautifully thanks to the love of the staff. Here's my image for the story "Ropeswing Season" by Kirk Read.

Acrylic Ink Work in Prog

crushing thoughts (in progress)

Been working on a series of images on cardboard. I work them out in pencil, as you can see here and then move on to inking them in 3 colors. I think the final result is pretty solid. The color of the board is more realistic in the scan of the final (below). The top one is slightly lighter so you can see the pencil details a bit better.

Been working in Acrylic Ink a lot lately and I'm loving it. It moves with my brush the way I think it should. This is "Pant" 8x11" on wood panel. Enjoy!

Bedford Springs Resort -- It only felt a little bit like The Shining

Bedford Springs Indoor Pool

As I mentioned previously, Tony and I went to Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania. It was a lovely relaxing time. The place has a rich history, established in the 1800's it survived all the way to the 80s when it finally closed it's doors. It reopened last year and has been designed to the hilt. Lots of great old furniture, modern conveniences and unique touches, from rich wallpapers to ceramic room number plaques. Check out Tony's photo set from the trip.

I was 14 Years old in 1992

The Insides

Golden Girls, Weeknights at 7pm

These photos are documentation of a time capsule that I created for myself in 1992. Dated to be opened in 2005. I opened it then, but stored it away for the last few years. So this stuff is roughly 15 years old, and at the age of 14 I thought I might be interested to see these things in the "Future."
