Snakes & Toads & Women

Spurred on by my sudden flood of inspiration to create things, I started making these neat vintage collages.  I take illustrations collected from old books and I Photoshop them to make these fantastic, strange and funky art pieces. I talked about the above work, Cup of Creation here.   Wildlife and Women are meant to …

Listen Up & Get to Work

Listen Up & Get to Work

I have to have something playing in the background while I work, whether its a movie, music, CBC, or a Podcast.  I have posted before what songs I was listening to while creating certain works, so I thought I would post about some of my favorite Podcasts. They vary greatly, from business, self help, science …

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes

I seem to be moving at glacier speed while creating this side project, so I thought I would post a couple behind the scenes pictures and explain what it is I am making. The Cunning Crow is a fan-fic Newspaper I started making, drawing from my favorite books and TV shows and reporting on them …

Creation
