An Artist's Journey To Nevermore
is now ready to order!
Run in the surf, relax on your own private beach, discover lost coastlines, explore a large island, and travel with intent to wander!
My 184-page full-color art book, An Artist's Journey to Nevermore, is live on Kickstarter, a wonderful crowdfunding site that allows artists to connect with their fans!
Please take a look at my project here, and consider becoming a backer! In return for a pledge during the Kickstarter campaign, which runs through May 1st, all backers will have their name included in the book! In addition, backers may choose from other rewards for helping me fund this project, such as a signed book, limited-edition print, an original painting, New Island travel memorabilia, or a New Island beach house.
The book will only happen if the campaign is fully funded by May 1st!
New Surf Drawings
I have recently begun a series of 22" x 30" pencil drawings. These are an attempt to capture the essence of waves, sand, rocks, and how the light, sunny or pale, plays on it all. I'm working from different photos I've taken during walks on my favorite beaches, combining several pictures to get the right composition. This one, titled Sand, Foam, and Fog was from a foggy morning at Aliso Creek Beach in Southern California. The drawings will be included in a group invitational at the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, which runs May 31-July 22.
