Making of the Hierophant

Time-lapse video of my Hierophant drawing for the Major Arcana Group Tarot Show at the Metallo Gallery in Madrid, NM held Oct. 12, 2013. There are 22 cards in the Major Arcana; 22 artists were selected to each do their interpretation of a single card. 


The Lion Comes Alive

Here's a time lapse video of "The Old Soul" coming to life. he took me somewhere between 25-30 hours or so to create over the course of a week. The planning, however, took months: I found the peonies on a walk in Nashville with my girlfriend this past June; the red dragonfly landed and stayed a while in my festival booth in Bernalillo, NM earlier this month; I'd been collecting source images of lions for about 6 months, but came across this pose a couple weeks ago; I had an idea for the mood I intended him to carry, but personal experiences over the summer paved the way for the emotional content he carries.


A Day in the Life...

  One of the reasons I post social media pictures of all my booth displays is to preserve their individual uniqueness. Every setup is it's own beast, a temporary art gallery customized to it's location, allotted display space, festival theme, and momentary inspiration that can take half a day or more to construct. My display at the Bernalillo Wine Festival took me a snappy 3 hours real time, from opening my van doors to zipping my canopy shut. This counts as an easy day at the office!
