artwalking

look busy doodle # 1 from yesterday's artwalk. sharpie pen on newsprint

yesterday was bizzay..i punched the clock, selling and schmoozing the day away at another montrose artwalk. spoke with ed and mike from art in the vault and all but signed on the dotted line..they seem interested in marketing my 'about face' series. so, i'll be sending jpgs/ bio/resume/statement materials their way. next step, the interview and photo shoot that will be featured on their website..

look busy doodle #2. sharpie pen on newsprint

as a participating artist in the artwalk, i have to 'demonstrate,' while dealing with customers. it's a bit of a juggling act, but producing these doodles has become 2nd nature to me..something i can easily separate from at a moment's notice. i was asked multiple times yesterday if i would draw someone's face on demand. thanks, but no thanks. i don't like to take myself too seriously, but working at disneyland is NOT on my agenda.

wanna see more anybody feel adventurous and wanna name them??

all doodles from yesterday. sharpie pen on newsprint.

doodle #3

doodle #4.. this guy's a bit of a bruiser, eh? the sharpie bled from the drawing in front of him..happy accident #1,482,003

doodle #5

doodle #6

doodle #7

Hi! I live nearby montrose (on Canada blvd) where they had that artwalk and just happened to be on that street. i had no idea that they had something like that right up my street! I got a chance to see some of your work and really admired it. I also make collage art and it was inspirational to see other artists in particular your work.

Re: pammy
YOU ARE TOO SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!
you should see the face over kimmy's bed..it takes up her entire bedroom wall. it was a face i drew in college with cow sticks. veeeeeery colorful and big. i gave it to her for a college grad present, mostly cuz i couldn't store it anywhere and i knew she'd be the only one on earth to love it. and don't you worry pammy, you'll be getting my next calendar/book!!!!

Re: pammy
Yessssssssssssssss, the family arrived safely and are they ever beautiful! now I have to decide if I want to be generous and give a few as gifts-----or be selfish as in -their mine! all mine! and nobody can touch them!!!!! I'm rich, I'm rich, I'm independently wealthy! Wait, life is not a cartoon and I am not daffy duck. I have to keep reminding myself. Thank you! Thank you! Love, pammy
