Plea for help

After I added some Feedburner code to my blog template, my sidebar began to show up down at the bottom of the blog.

If there is anyone out there who could tell me how to fix this, there is a free print in it for you...

Watch the birdies...

I have been working on some digital collages utilizing vintage illustrations of birds and some of my urban texture photos. So far, there are 7, but I have more to complete. I decided to take liberties with the colors of the birds where I could.

Available on Etsy.

It's not really clear to me how, when, and why I came up with this idea, but I was going through a phase where I was experimenting with seeing how many images I could come up with using a basic shape as the basis. In these images, I started with a basic head shape that I manipulated to resemble different animals.

Currently, these are in the Etsy shop...

Going to the Dogs...

I have been trying for about 13 years to come up with series of dogs, and things finally came together with these new images of a few Labradors and a Wire Fox Terrier. A Pug, Golden Retriever, and a Jack Russell Terrier are in the works, among others.

Being that I enjoy the production of art, this series should sustain me for a while, as there will be no lack of subject matter.

These are available on Etsy.

New Lunastrella Rollerskates!

My oldest daughter is turning 5 soon with a rollerskating birthday party on the schedule. So once again my wife needing some art for one of the kids has helped me to create some new work. I added some new background colors to the series for this one, gray and pink.

These are available at Etsy...

What to do next?

I have been buried this week with a motion design project that wraps up today. I am excited to start on some new art soon, but not sure where I want to start. We need to prep for the summer season here in the gallery, so I need to generate some back stock/inventory.

I have always been interested in objects that are so associated with a locale as to be iconic, like red double decker buses and London. That interest led me to create some art of the last few years that I call my British Stuff, however lame a title that is. I ended up researching old buses and found some great resources for some of the transit vehicles from other cities in the UK. I am working now to finish those pieces and look forward to seeing who connects with them.

More critters are on the way, as well as collages with vintage technical illustrations. My maternal grandmother loaned me a mountain of kodachromes that my grandfather took on family vacations in the 50s. They are classic roadside attraction type shots, and I see something along the lines of my Rovinato series happening with those.

Mintd and and Kunek

I have opened up shop on and on These are two sites that allow you to sell your art, so hopefully, that's what I am gonna do. I had the opportunity to join Etsy earlier in it's development than I actually did, so I am hoping to avoid that mistake in the future...

On a another front, I have been listing to a great band out of Stillwater, OK called Kunek. They are are a bit hard to describe, in that I don't want to label them as Radiohead-esque. I urge you to check them out...
