I came across this article today and was really struck by it. It’s a manifesto of sorts by Jesse Thorne. Although his background is in public radio, this piece will ring bells and raise flags for anyone interested in earning a living from the things they like to make (music, art, comics, cakes, whatever).

Just the bare bones at the moment... roughing in shadows and highlights. Much squinting. A few hints of colour.
The photo is of the coastline in Bay Bulls, Newfoundland, taken by Chris Hammond.
It’s a small one (8” x 10”) so I’m going to make a good effort to see it through in the next few days.

this story in today’s National Post. So I thought I’d throw my hat in ring. Drawn in Illustrator with a splash of colour added in Photoshop.

For a change of pace, I started mucking with plaster and acrylics again. Not sure what I’ll do with them yet... at the moment I’m just enjoying the textures and giving them a few coats of gesso.
My latest studio upgrade includes a “new” stereo, thanks for my buddy Johnny. A few hand-me-down components from him and a few pieces from a “previously loved” shop made up a whole system. Every bit of it is 20+ years old but it sounds great. The record player is covered in punk rock stickers so I thought it would be a good spot for my appalled nun painting. (Don’t worry sister, I only own Beatles records.)
