Holey underwear, this year has been a bit of an issue. To say the least.
Right here and now we aren’t going to go on about anything other than to say “Thank You” to every single person who has been wishing us well. What a winter. At some point we are going to write one of our short essays on the nature of everything and the solution to nothing but not now. We are exhausted.
BUT we are back to work. Mostly. There are a lot of biological brain clouds worked into our recent adventures battling our own DNA for an extended period but there are bits of clearing and we are peeking through.
Band of Horses were nice enough to let me take my sweet time and explore some of the weird brain clouds and come up with a new print for their Spring Tour coming up right now. The art is a sort of free form “let me do what feels comfortable and no hang ups” sort of medicated sunflower to start this new season. The prints are really attractive in a sort of Old Themes meet New Means sort of way. People who get one will see.
A second offering, Road Warrior, is a new small art print in the same spirit to get another little aspect of healing out through our brain, along our elbow, past the forearm vein and along the finger to the pencil then expressed via a nice Kuretake. Look for that soon, here, too.
For them who draw, for profit or even just for fun, they know that access to the void is both therapy, desperately important therapy and also escape and also entertainment and also expression and also happiness and also revelation and also meditation and also access to the real reality, not the reality that every single other person accesses every day but your very own one single reality that expresses itself and then completely dissolves behind itself in the next instance of thought or pencil movement moving into the future. When that access is broken or denied, it makes everything harder. So finding it again is good stuff.
As a Third item, even, consider The Avett Brothers and my effort their behalf and their infinite patience and glory in helping us out with some added purpose of effort and genial acceptance and support! Hooray, is the word for day. And here is the poster art that we provided for The Avett Brothers in Tallahassee, FL. for 2017. We were making an effort to make certain that we did a lot of drawing for this one, just to remind our self that it’s still possible. xo
More to come soon! Very soon.
