Detroit Drunken Historical Society Celebrates Detroit's 314th Birthday

Last Saturday the Detroit Drunken Historical Society celebrated Detroit's 314th Birthday and as part of the celebration, Corktown Studios hosted a pop-up silent art auction. The exhibition featured local Detroit artists who were asked to take inspiration from an 1883 book, " The Legends of le Detroit " described by the organizers as " a compilation of myth and lore from Detroit's French era." I was fortunate to be able to participate. The party was a blast, the people and art were great, and as an added bonus, my piece sold! I took a little creative liberty and just wanted to present the fact that French Fries come from France and Detroit loves them!

White Elephant Candy Gift Box

Every Christmas the studio where I work has a White Elephant gift exchange. Each year the gift exchange has a theme, the theme this year was a treat box with some kind of treat. People can either make something, buy something, turn something into that something and so on. Myself, I opted to make my treat box this year... industrial meets wacko weird candy land, filled with Christmas candy of course.

Turned out pretty good.

Going Nowhere, The Space Boy



















Another little iPad sketch, this one is random and really simple but
I love how it turned out.
This is a prime example of what I  mentioned before on this blog,
Some things you plan and spend time meticulously laying out
and in the end your not happy. Other times you just start drawing or painting lines and shapes and the art makes itself.
