New Art: Spray!

Guess what?  I drew an ELEPHANT! That should come as no surprise.  The true surprise of Spray! though is that upon finishing the outline, I hated this piece – but, instead of scrapping the piece altogether, I had an instinct to make it work.  I added a squiggle here and there, some contrasting lines and…

New Art: In the Garden

I spent the last couple days working on a new piece titled In the Garden.  After receiving some feedback that people would like to see my work feature more women, I decided to deliver.  In the Garden is a piece I hope translates to represent serenity and beauty.  After sketching the image, I took a break to decide the color…

New Art: Clownin’ Around & Straight Jacket

I woke up this morning with a couple visions in my head for new art involving clowns.  Seems timely provided the media’s coming clown fixation (Lady GaGa’s ARTPOP cover art, the upcoming American Horror Story: Freakshow, “Crazy Steve” from IMPACT Wrestling and rumors about who will play “The Joker” next).  I have a feeling pop culture is…

New Art: The Jungle Beat

New Art: A Supernova, Skater Boy, Shadow, Mother Monster, Elephants, & a Vision

I’ve been BUSY creating new [visual] art throughout February (instead of writing, which was the goal!). You’ve probably seen most of the recent works, which include: Gerry’s Flamingo, Dancer, Lion, Flamboyance, and my surprise 17-piece collection titled Visions of Meditation – but there’s more! Today I’m unveiling 8 new pieces – in just this one post! As usual, I’ve added small descriptive paragraphs…

Resolutions 2014: #BecomingTheBobbyJames & Joie de Vivre!

Forget coming up with a word or theme that’s supposed to represent my year – last year’s “theme” was Up, Up and Away and… well that didn’t happen.  I didn’t fly anywhere – I didn’t even fly a kite.  How depressing.  So I got to thinking – “What’s the problem? Why didn’t that happen?” The only thing I…
