Summer Deep

There’s an old T.Rex song called Summer Deep. The first verse goes like this… Summer deep is in the hills againHis lady is a lionessWinds of birds blow through the fields againInvaders from the true worlds Summer ends on September 22, so I suppose we are in Summer Deep now. I spent most of this... Continue Reading →

Fresh Poison

Fresh Poison, 2021, Staedtler Pigment Liner on Fabriano Bristol Vellum, 12 x 9 inches Here's a drawing I finished toward the end of 2021. The title was taken from a song by Hozier.

The turbulent composition reflects the times and the message, I assume, is clear enough. Vanishing Act, 2022, ink on paper, 13... Continue Reading →

Little Summer

This past week was filled with drawing, writing, reading, torrential rain, flooded libraries—not mine—and patches of sun. Some of these things are related. I’m calling this post Little Summer, because so many small wonders seem to come our way during Ontario’s short pause in what can seem like an endless winter. Here’s one. A tiny... Continue Reading →

Lander 1

Lander 1, 2021, ink on 140lb Arches hotpress, 18 x 24 inches Lander 1 detail Lander 1 detail The inspiration for Lander 1—and yes, expect a Lander 2 and 3—came from watching the Perseverance rover descend on Mars in February. I started thinking about humans being sole explorers/ representatives from earth. This piece imagines a... Continue Reading →
