On a personal note (aren't they all), I am halfway through repainting after the house was torn apart (in a good way) by a plumber (Joshua's Plumbing) and a drywall repair/construction team (I don't recommend them). Maria has her study/gym in the center room now and we have hot running water at the kitchen tap as well as all our plumbing overhead. No more slab leaks!
This Tuesday, I will have another talk/discussion simulcast on Facebook and Zoom about being in the Fog. This one is about fear. Blank Canvas, No Talent, Discouraged by Teacher/Parent/Lover, I Will Never Be as Good as..., It's too Late, I'm too Busy. Having spent my life trying to enable others in their art while doing mine, I have seen some things. I would love this to be a discussion rather than a speech but either way it is happening at 5:30 Tuesday on Zoom. I will check in early and shoot the breeze. Call me at 619-337-5489 if you have trouble checking in, Zoom info at the end.
The chipmunk version of the last one (cause I talk tooooo sloooooow) is at https://vimeo.com/643955113 It is about art vampires.
Thank you, your monthly contribution is helping me enter shows which directly helps the art institutions sponsoring them. I actually got in one with two pieces at the Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery and 8 (donated pieces) at Oceanside Museum of Arts Teeny Tiny show.
My recommended Patreon Artist to support this month is Derpixon. They are working on a very interesting animated piece about a shape shifter. They release bits as they finish them. I enjoyed the Mime piece and their ongoing trolley piece very much. Mainly shows their very nasty work although I get occasional glimpses of their other stuff. You can see their artistic development going back quite a ways. Found them originally through Pornhub. Here is the link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/mime-and-dash-53310864, They also post to New Grounds: https://derpixon.newgrounds.com/ where you can see and not contribute.
Glued the toys onto Miguel's 5 piece series using the very slow drying Liquitex heavy Gel Medium. Will do some finish work with the Gel again. Hopefully at least 3 will meet with Miguel's (hi Miguel) approval!
Thank you so much, remember to claim art and artcards if you want them, Its a perk of being my patron. I still have plenty available and am making new stuff weekly. Love working with you all, Miguel's series has been a hoot, enjoyed the photoshoot/drawing session with Mark and Kim, The portrait and magazine archives for Kris, the Pride photographs for John to name a few. Please add your name to the list in some unique way.
