cartoon life: Seven little cats in the grass

It’s been a week of tired. Sometimes I despair that so much is on the edge. I have no work held back, no posts queued up, no drawings hovering.

Then you just make a mark, and something happens, and you just follow it. So this is fresh – last night – and with no idea what is over the edge of the precipice of tomorrow that I can see.

This is so damned whimsical I wish I could bottle it.

cartoon life: The old tuxedo

Our 17 or 18 year old tuxedo sleeps a lot. It’s hard to get a pose where he doesn’t look dead.

cartoon life: Drawing of Botticeli

Getting around to drawing from the catalog bought at The Uffizi last summer. Recalling that you need a fan and bottles of water to traverse the building. And lots of time, and some idea of what you want to see before you go in.

Seeing from a book is not the same thing as seeing while being there. Drawing is however much more pleasant.

cartoon life: Calico flump

Upcoming, a series of cross-application experiments. Drawings began in one app, unfinished for various reasons and left to linger in the photo app. Mostly begun in Paper, or Sketches, and finished in Procreate.

A challenging contrast of line and form. Not sure they work ideally together.

Art Threat: Hugs With Arms will put affordable art on your walls

After seven years of putting political art on your computer screen, I’m now hoping to put some art on your walls.

We started Art Threat in 2007 because we felt that artists creating socially-engaged work weren’t getting the attention they deserved. After 1200+ posts over the years (and many more to come), I’d like to think we’ve managed in some small measure to introduce these artists to new audiences and help further the appreciation and understanding of political art.

About a year ago, however, I began to think about how I could do more. As someone who is an arts (Read more…)

cartoon life: Cat drawings up at Pinterest

Just put up a number of cat drawings at Pinterest.

Finally coming down to the last days of this head cold. It’s been a battle between me and the cats for nap space on the couch. In these last few days, I’m happy to secede the battle.

Things Are Good: Watch Sustainability Illustrated

Alex Magnin is an illustrator who likes making the world a better place and over the last six months he’s been illustrating sustainability. The video above is about explaining sustainability with science and is a good example of what the sort of videos he illustrates. The videos are 4-7 minuets in length and make for a good quick and informative break.

I have been working as a sustainability advisor for almost 10 years (with the international non-profit The Natural Step) and have seen first-hand the power of innovative sustainability practices to transform lives, businesses, and communities for the better. (Read more…)
