Back when I had a little more time, I liked to create multi-colored linocuts. I really loved carving for days, not being able to see the results until the first print. Some day I'd like to get back into that, but in the meantime I've tried to recreate the same technique digitally. It's not quite as therapeutic, but it is fun drawing in reverse. I've been experimenting with how to achieve the look using Lars' favorite cartoons as the subject matter. This one is Wanda and the Alien.
Hey Spotify, thanks for putting Serenade To A Poodle in my Discover Weekly playlist. I have no idea what I've been listening to that made you think I'd like that, but it put a smile on my face.
John Prine is in town tonight, and sadly I'm not there. Hopefully I'll catch him at Red Rocks someday. For tonight, I'll pour a glass of wine and listen to Fair and Square.
Sometimes my 3 year old is into stuff that's not very fun to draw... but the smile on his face is worth it. This kid is obsessed with smoke detectors right now!
Lars is in love with Fall leaves. It really is beautiful in the Midwest this year.
