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."
"We are in a social trust apocalypse."
"Everything you want is on the other side of fear."
