World Fire Sculpture Championship (January 24, 2014)

I recently got back from the World Fire Sculpture Championship in Riga, Latvia. I was very lucky to have my proposal printed in the official Riga 2014 European Capital of Culture Programme. I was selected to represnt the USA on the basis of my proposal and resume. I chose Rod Bouc to be my teammate. He is the Deputy Director of the Columbus Museum of Art. There were twelve countries represented. Each team had two members. The countries were: Spain, Latvia, Russia, Lithuania, Australia, Switzerland, Great Britain, Estonia, Finland, France, Sweden and USA.. The sculptures were built on the the banks of the Daugava river which runs through the middle of the city.

Look for  more posts on this amazing experience.



Latest Sketches From My Small Sketchbook (January 12, 2014)

I have a small moleskin sketchbook 3.5 inches by 5.5 inches that I carry along with me whenever I go out on the weekend. These sketches are the latest from that sketchbook. (note: any resemblance to anyone living or dead is coincidental)




The Birth Sketch recreated with Wide Aspect Ratio (January 7, 2014)

Attached below is “The Birth”, sketch that I have expanded into a wide aspect ratio. I like being challenged by this new composition arena. I may or may not turn this image into a vector painting.
