More Book Art

For this post I chose some of my favorites from the book plus the ones with similarities in style.
With the exception of the second picture, they all feature the odd figures that I've been drawing/painting for about the last ten years.  I'm not sure where they come from, but they happen on pots when I glaze,  in sketchbooks and sometimes in paintings.  To me they're universal symbols--part of the collective unconscious I guess.  I feel they represent a sense of joy or lightness.

The lefthand side of the  second picture is a dream image--my house was on fire with a moon overhead.  (On the right hand side, I was just drawing legs!)

oil paint, oil pastel, fabric, old peterson field guide, pencil, colored pencil, thread


  1. Yes, collective unconscious. Similar figures are in my notebooks. The last one, though, is new to me--I really like him. This is great and I think the stitching takes it up a notch.

  2. Interesting that you also draw these figures, there really is something to be said for the collective unconscious. I like the last one too. I love the big head.
