It Has Begun - My 2015 Art Prize Entry

Gulp! Here we go again - I'm excited to announce that I've thrown my artistic hat back into the Art Prize ring with my large carbon dust portrait - "Rob" - which you may have seen glimpses of in my Instagram feed or on YouTube where I've been posting time lapse photos of the creation of this piece. 

Rob - the largest drawing I've ever done - 20 x 80" - carbon dust & white chalk, 2015.

Some details of the piece (which is very close to being complete) are above. Below is the first time lapse video... in my opinion, the most dramatic of the series. Enjoy!

One More Day to Vote for my Self-Portrait!

If you haven't seen it before, this roller derby self-portrait was created with carbon dust/pencil on paper that I had my derby teammates skate over. So, dirt & rink crud is definitely part of thee piece. This was the first attempt at what would be my series for last year's Art Prize. So, if you like it, could you give me a vote? Voting closes tomorrow: https://jerrysartarama.wishpond.com/2015-jerrys-artarama-self-portrait-contest/entries/17456978

Thank you!

Bon Voyagé, Self-Portrait! London or Bust!

I'm a little nervous, you see. 

I'm a little nervous, you see. 

Letting go of a piece is always a bit emotional for me. "Will I ever see it again?" inevitably pops into my head. Welp, nothing risked, nothing gained. Off to the post office!

The People's Choice vote for this piece is ongoing HERE, if you'd like to throw a vote my way (hint - don't click the FB 'like' button, click the 'vote' button).

Me, post-derby.

DEEP. BREATH.
