Proposed logo, Strength for the Journey 2007

I had actually created this last year. I'm a frustrated cartoonist! The sun and the dog are really reminiscent of the old cartoons for me. I like the pallet of colors and the laid back feeling.

Buddha Sketch

This is ATC size on cream colored stock.
We often see religious symbols in fabulous giant settings of churches and temples. But some of the most important are little cards and statuettes in the places where we work and rest.

Canidating Sunday

This is ATC size on cream colored card stock. I drew it during church service today. I know the canidate minister looks a bit like a fly-person. Her face was not as important as her stole and the heart from which she spoke.
Our settled minister looks a little more human. Glasses, nose, necktie make a quick sketch.
The ghost of a lot of things were around them: cave drawings of hunter-soldiers and a buffalo, the Venis of Willendorf, the wheel of many religions, the computer monitor, a phallic like microscope.

Classic Love

Valentine ATC
Six of these went off in trade to a couple of other artists in the Midwest. They are 2.5 x 3.5 inches and made for trading not for selling. I enjoy this "concentrated" format. I hope we get some local swapping done. They truely make for a currency of talent.

Strange Bedfellows ATC

This is an ATC or Artist Trading Card which I giving in a Valentine exchange with two artists in the Mid-West. ATC's, never sold just traded, are only 2.5 by 3.5 inches in size. The best ones are unique and hand made. It is a fun challenge to make these tiny works of art.
