Day of the Dead Assemblage Workshop In Silverton

I conducted my first assemblage class this past weekend in Silverton, Oregon at the Silverton Art Gallery. It was a blast and it was fun to watch the "students" dig through the pile of stuff that I brought in from my studio for the class. I hope to do another class there in December - this time making assemblage Christmas ornaments.

Time to hit the junk pile again

Okay...I've been absent long enough. I got snowed in with some other projects and have been unable to finish any of my assemblage art - including the much ballyhooed "#10 Combination Plate." It's time to get things back in gear. See you soon.

I think this stuff is just really cool! Digitally enhanced composite photographs entitled Habitat Machines.

"To Show"

I am almost finished with my latest guitar assemblage, "#10 Combination Plate." I think you'll like it. It's been a battle, but it may end up being my favorite yet.

I've been thinking about what assemblage project to start on next. I came across a cool word..."monstrare." It's latin and means, "to show." I thought about it for awhile and I came up with my own word: Monstrarelic. Watch for my new "monstrarelic" assemblages coming soon to a luh-bor-a-tory near you. :)

Wow. This is perhaps the coolest little video (can you call it that?) that I've seen in awhile. It's got cool music and a very assemblage look to it. See what I mean.

Abstract Latte Interview

Thanks to the folks at Abstract Latte for the interview they did with me this week.
It's a great blog created by graphic designer and coffee drinker Joe Blend. Man I wish I had a name like that! Here's the link to the interview....

1,000 Ideas For Creative Reuse

Goodness gracious, I'm happy. Happy I found out that two pieces of my artwork have been chosen to appear in Garth Johnson's new book, 1,000 Ideas For Creative Reuse soon to be published by Rockport Publishers/Quarry Books.

This will be the first time my art has been published and I can't tell you how encouraging that is.

Makes me want to try to get into another book. I think I will.
