This Week’s Stuff 14OCT2012

October 14th, 2012

The Art

This week I made a commitment to myself that I would endeavor to have one painting in finishing, one in background, and two in prep each week.  Of course that means that I didn’t accomplish any of it.  Well, technically I did, but it was a rework of a painting I started two weeks ago.  I am REALLY digging this painting and drawing every day biz.  It’s even more fun when others join in with me.

The studio has TWO whole members now.  That’s a doubling of membership for every week it’s been open.  We’re developing a schedule of classes to encourage others to come out and play was well.  I’ll keep you posted on that as it develops.  In the meantime, if you’re in Oklahoma and out driving around some night, swing by and see what we’re all about.

The Links

Every week on The Artistic Biker Live! we turn the links on in the chat room for the last ten minutes of the show.  That way, if anyone has any creativity type links they want to share, they can.  Then I review them to ensure that the porn ones are kept safely away from prying eyes and bookmarked for “Figure Drawing” reference later, and present to you all the family friendly(ish) ones.  Here are this week’s links:

You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast

    Hey, I saw the daily drawing link but only from last year, I am curious, are you still doing this?
    I also wanted to say that I think your work with the kids of your community is awesome. As a tattoo/piercing aficionado and preschool teacher, I love it when another member of a so-called “counter-culture” is also a role model for kids, effectively stomping all over whatever negative connotations that your love of bikes, and my piercings may once have held.
    If you need to see any artwork to become a member of your drawing group, I have some stuff up on Deviantart.com, under purplestripeyedspork. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and keep up your amazing work for your community.

    Thanks, spork!
    I don’t draw as a discipline daily anymore, but I did draw longer than I posted the images. I really need to update the gallery. I draw or paint daily and try to turn out at least one finished work a week as well as any commissions I might pick up. I love your spiderweb tattoo and your pygmy giraffe! Keep fighting the stereotypes and maybe we can all be free to be the people we’re meant to be.
    Blade
