Sketch of the Day

I just read the recent Fables compilation, War and Pieces, and Mouse Guard Issue #4 from Series 2: Winter 1152. Both were excellent as expected.

At work today I was doing some hum-drum filing in the bowels of the building, and spotted the 1990 hard cover of The House of God by Edward Norman. I checked it out from our Library and brought it home so that I can enjoy it at my leisure. Church architecture was always my favorite part of art history.

This is two days early because of upcoming travels and other busyness, but Happy Birthday to my dear twin sister!

Exhibitour Photos

In retrospect I should have taken more photos, but here are a couple from last weekend's exhibit in Wausau.

Joel and I displayed work in the Exhibitour this past Saturday in Wausau, WI. It was a fun event - I will post some pictures of our display when I get a hold of them.

Sketch of the Day

I was playing around with ideas for labeling another home brew.

Sketch of the Day

Today was a beautiful day for a walk in one of Madison's older neighborhoods. I really love the Tudor design, and tried drawing this house from memory after passing it on the way to a hair appointment.

There is no explanation for this one really.

Wizard World Weekend

Today we returned from Wizard World Chicago.

During the convention we stopped by the booths of some friends: Christopher Shy of Studio Ronin, and Tim Seeley of Devil's Due Publishing. I was happily surprised when we came across David Peterson in Artist's Alley. I enjoyed his Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 series, and bought the first three installments of Winter 1152 along with a poster, signed of course. Also in the Alley we came across some fantastic artwork from Imaginism Studios. Later during our browsing we bought a few 30's Pulp cover reproductions.

There was a beautiful new (all digital) theater near the hotel, so we watched Kung Fu Panda, Wanted (I also bought the book at the convention), and Wall-E. The animations were both great, and Wanted - although it deviated from the book quite a bit - was overall a good, watchable movie.

All in all, a very nice weekend.

We put up some work in the Common Wealth Gallery this past weekend. It was a short show, but a great turn-out for the opening (during which my work included labels and better-adjusted track lighting). The next venue we're pursuing is a nice, new chocolate shop in town.

Ron Hansen

Following my brother's good advice, I listened to today's podcast of Fresh Air with Terry Gross. She talked with Ron Hansen - a Catholic deacon and author of The Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - about his newest novel, writing and art in general, and how it relates to his Catholic faith. I quite enjoyed it, along with his tales of twin-hood (I too am an identical twin).

Pilgrim Icon of St Raphael

An icon of St. Raphael is currently traveling around the diocese here (full story).

I was interested to learn that icons are described as being written rather than painted.
