Here is a link to a photoset of the Like a Rolling Stone show at the Gallery Nucleus. 1 day left to see the show.
My painting, The Fairy Feller’s Master-stroke is in this show that opens at Gallery Nucleus tomorrow night. If you are in the area, check it out. Here is the blurb: ” Rock and roll has influenced generations of the world’s music-inclined youth, from its rockabilly and Doo-wop roots in the 1950′s to the emergence of surf music, Motown and heavy metal in the 1960′s. Icons of rock and roll—such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and the euphoric Beatles—made way for newer names including The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin and the late Jimi Hendrix. The frenzied genre would evolve during the 1970′s, spurring punk rock archetypes like The Ramones, Sex Pistols and The Clash. Rock and roll’s next three decades would see rise to even more sub-genres and historic acts like U2, Guns & Roses and Pearl Jam. To say that rock and roll is a global phenomenon would be a true understatement! Nucleus presents an international roster of creative talent, bringing the wild history of rock and roll’s worldwide influence into our gallery space. The exhibition will feature artwork from a variety of artists reflecting upon rock and roll’s richly exciting timeline, so rock enthusiasts will want to mark their calendars!
I came across a few sheets of thumbnails that I did a couple of years ago. At the time I was just trying to generate a few ideas for monster characters that had a strong organic vibe. Last night I took one and developed it into this tinted ink drawing. I plan on doing more of these. Click on the image to see a larger version.
I am excited to be part of this upcoming show at Gallery Nucleus.
“From the forces that gift us with sunshine and curse us with storms, to the countless creatures that roam sky, earth and sea, to the plants that provide us with breath and life, to even the tiniest of organisms yet to be discovered, we are surrounded by Mother Nature at every moment. Nucleus presents an exciting group of diversely skilled artists that have come together to create a compelling collection of work that celebrates the harmonious existence of all things that live, breathe, and even photosynthesize. This visually stunning exhibition features a variety of mediums from a global roster of inspiring talent and urges to connect us to the beauty, power, and balance within the natural world.”

This picture was sent to me by a collector of my work, Jacob Ludvigsen. It is a miniature silverpoint series that I did called The Iconoclasts. It is really fulfilling to see my pieces so tastefully presented like this, and in Denmark no less!
Playing with ink this morning. How can a substance so simple give us such a variety of atmospheres to work with? This piece is called Apples, inspired by the apples that are still clinging to my neighbor’s tree in the middle of a Canadian winter. The figures are courtesy of my over caffeinated brain!
