View Master

I had this particular View Master disc when I was a kid. I just found it via the Drawn website but when I followed the link I found the whole series of images in a form that mimics the 3D effect. You can see those images here.
I still have my View Master. It's in a box somewhere. I have some discs too but I'm not sure the Flintstones is one of them. I'll have to pull them out and see what I've got.

Alex Toth

Alex Toth did a lot of design work for the animated cartoons I watched in the 60's. He worked on most of my favorites including Jonny Quest, the Herculoids, the New Adventures of Huck Finn, and Space Ghost. Click on the title of this entry and it will take you to a killer gallery of Toth designs. Man, I wish they'd release all those old cartoons on DVD. I've got Jonny Quest but I want them all...especially the Herculoids.

Ethan Jack Harrington

I met Ethan at last night's Lustre opening. His figurative work is vivid and loose and I like it alot. Oh how I want to get into a figure drawing class again. And a print studio. And a paint studio. And I want to learn encaustics. And...
SIGH. It never ends.

Great show at the Linda Hodges Gallery. This image is Beauty by Daphne Minkoff. Great stuff!

Tarda Mucho

Someone emailed me this link. I love the spare quality of the collage work. It challenges my "fill the space" mentality.

Mark Eaton

I also met Mark Eaton at the Art Party. I just love his figurative photography. He prints these on canvas and they have a nice, soft effect. Very nice. Mark just relocated to Seattle so I'm sure I'll be running into him again.

Doug Keith

I had the pleasure of meeting Doug at the Art Party last night. I love his ArtAxes. I have always wanted to do something artistic with guitars but a) never could find an old one to do it with and b) didn't know what I would do if I had it. Doug doesn't have that problem. I found it interesting that he said some folks are turned off by the fact that the guitars are rendered unplayable. Well, they are for display not play. Duh. C'mon people. Despite the fact that a guitar is a beautiful instrument sound-wise, have you ever just stopped to enjoy the aesthetic beauty of their design.
Doug is also a remarkable illustrator. You can view more of his work here.

James Caudle

I met James at Velouria in Ballard the other night. As I was reading his statement, I saw that he graduated from The University of West Florida...just like me...only 10 years later. I really like his work. I hope we cross paths again sometime.

Building C

We met several great artists over at Building C in Ballard on Satuday night. Here are a couple I really liked.

I am very envious of their studio space over there. I suppose that should be a goal of mine to one day be able to support myself enough to have a studio outside the home.

Crystal Thomas

We met Crystal at the Edmonds Art Walk back in October. We love her mirrors and would love to be able to purchase one someday.
