Art projects in the works, rain in Portland, recommended reading, and more
After a brief sunny spell the rain has returned to Portland. Feels quite different from how I remember last year, in which we got hardly any rain at all (which makes Portlanders uneasy). But now I rather miss the sun. Anyways…
Lately I’ve been getting back into some stream of consciousness index card drawings. If you’d like to own a small original work of art, this ink drawing of a bear has been added to my webstore with others.
I’m also working on (partially) wrapping up a children’s book project from years ago, and the black and white dummy book should be available soon.
I’ve got numerous comics and short stories in need of enough polish for publishing and hopefully those will be coming out sooner rather than later. I’ll be releasing them at the Bedtime for Mystics substack. These are more story oriented than gag oriented like a lot of my prior comics.
What else is on the horizon? Oh yeah, I’ve got the Secret History of Albert Einstein currently being written. A growing project on Tools for Freethinkers, which may just end up becoming a book at this point. Some written and illustrated material for next month’s Maybe Day (a reflection on the works of Robert Anton Wilson). More poems, of course. And, if I can find the time, maybe I can get back into some music making.
Ok, enough yammering about my projects.
Hope you are well where you are.
