    Fan funded art

    by  • 9/17/2009 • art • 0 Comments

    I’ve kicked in for a number of projects where I didn’t know what was going to come out at the end of the deal; knowing only the smallest bit about the artist, and trusting testimonials and sounds-like anecdotes, and the like. Sxip is the latest one that I’m kicking in a couple bucks for. While […]

    New Robots on Etsy

    by  • 6/27/2009 • art • 0 Comments

    Putting up a couple of the robot images on Etsy, including one of my favorite “Friendly Monsters” coincidentally numbered 13. He’d be content to sit back, maybe watch a little Mork and Mindy on channel 57. Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16-ouncer. He’s good fine people, Stuart. Sure, he looks like a horrible flesh-rending […]

    Time for more artwork

    by  • 3/28/2009 • art • 0 Comments

    I spent the day doing some long overdue store maintenance; verifying that everything that was for sale in my etsy shop was filed properly, scanning things I’ve never listed, and uploading those images. About 20 new, never before listed pieces went up on the site today, all for super low prices as usual. I sell […]

    Two Heads Are Better Than None

    by  • 8/19/2008 • art • 0 Comments

    I ordered some buttons with the idea that they’d sell well enough at a fall/winter craft sale here. I have at least 50 to 100 of each of these two pieces. I also have a stack of neodymium magnets (5-6mm, 1-1.2kg pull), so with a pair of wire snips, these pins become rather nice little […]

    Asking governments questions

    by  • 7/27/2008 • art, life • 0 Comments

    US Customs is confusing… so, I decided to ask them a question on their convenient FAQ system. Sadly, nobody seems to have asked this sort of question on the site yet… so As a Canadian citizen, I have been invited to attend and sell my artistic works in a show in the US. How do […]

    Art as Commodity

    by  • 7/22/2008 • art, life • 0 Comments

    I don’t think that there is anything transcendental in my painting; well, not for the viewer, at least. If it’s pleasing to the eye, the mind, or on some other level (I haven’t heard them make any sounds…), then that’s all that’s meant to be. I just make the things to make them, and the […]

    Evolution of a series of paintings – III

    by  • 7/19/2008 • art • 0 Comments

    I’ve been doing an hour here, an hour there. Between doing some web updates and tinkering with the logo-fish (well, sea horse) for Binarysoul, and between thinking of making robot buttons and scanning old photos in… It’s been a busy day. Here’s a brief glance into the current state of the latest little custom project; […]

    Evolution of a series of paintings – II

    by  • 7/17/2008 • art • 0 Comments

    The first layer of paint goes in for the background; “Mars Yellow” which is something like an orange toned iron oxide red. Good for a first layer. With these, I’m likely going to put the second layer down as a titanium buff / naples yellow for a more cream coloured base with hints of earthy […]
