Hat Wars Revisited And A Merry Whip Out Weekend

April 9, 2018
   Spent a good deal of the weekend working on a variety of artwork:

Daily Whip Out: "Don't Touch My Hat!" series #7.5

Also noodling nighttime sky effects, like this:

Daily Whip Out: "Ring Around The Moon"

I'm always seeking images and ideas for stories from the road and last weekend in Santa Fe I saw these formidable pictures:

A Page from my Narrative Scrapbook: Z.Z. Wei Page

   Notice how the placement of random paintings on a page starts to create a narrative. We want to hear the story.

    I also wanted to do a storm rider at night lit up by lightning and that led me to here:

Daily Whip Out: "Scratchboard Storm Rider"

   This next one resulted from Kathy coming out to the studio and asking me to show her what I was referring to as "the lift." So, I had lifted the white out of the blue, which created a nice water effect and the shimmering river soon evolved.

Daily Whip Out: "Sky Slipper"

   And here's another shot of Mickey Free on the hunt for the Apache Kid:

"The Reconnoiter" also "Enemy Camp"

   In this age of maniacal social media it's interesting to note that: 

"The Constitution was designed to constrain our worst impulses. Facebook encourages them."
—Paul Bergevin


"We are in a social trust apocalypse."
—David Brooks

"Everything you want is on the other side of fear."
—Evan Rachel Wood
