Last night I helped launch the first Art & Craft Social evening at Hot Art Wet City, with Kim Werker as my co-host. The event drew a crowd of close to thirty people, and the place was packed.

It was amazing to see all sorts of projects on the go, from felting, to knitting, drawing, painting, spirograph, and so much more. There was even someone who brought a typewriter to write letters. I took photos of some of the many projects people were working on. Look at all this fabulous stuff!

Just a quick note about new work in my Etsy Shop. I decided to list for sale some of the many meditative geometric drawings I’ve been doing in recent months. At the moment there are only three, but by tomorrow I will add four more.

Each one is a unique abstract drawing using silver gel pen on a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ black cardstock.

I’ve been working on this paper cut piece for the last week and just finished it today. I was inspired to make something with concentric circles after exploring ideas for a recent commission of a series of small pieces. This one is personal work for an upcoming show.

I took a few photos as I made progress, and kept wishing I could’ve shot a timelapse of the entire process. I will do this with a future piece with a bit more planning.

The finished paper cut design is backed here with red paper to better show off the line work. This is cut from a piece of 14″ x 17″ Strathmore drawing paper in medium weight, and the diameter of the circles is 12.25″.

More work from this series can be seen here and here.
