100 things I love
100 things I love*
leather & wool
white sheets (crisp)
printing with colin
mom & dad
the smell of horses
pretty book covers
pretty baked goods
falling in love
knowing the answer
being at home
learning new things
doing things myself
ghost paint signs on buildings
accents & dialects
old theaters with chandeliers and heavy velvet curtains
discovering new music
punching down bread dough
golden harvest haze
first day of school feeling
the sacred silence and smell of old churches
*in no particular order. Because sometimes its good to make a list.
Sheen by Greg Coulton
"After producing ‘Mortlake’ a few of my neighbours in the nearby suburb of ‘Sheen’ asked if I could produce something for them.
The piece is a historical celebration of the area, featuring details and iconography to depict its illustrious past.”
BILL WATTERSON ‘A cartoonist’s advice’
"Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake."
I’ve always had a hard time shaking the Protestant-work-ethic-guilt feeling that I must be lazy for having done exactly that.
I hope you like this thing I made.
I hate drawing clouds, but I love drawing car crashes.
100 Abandoned Houses
“100 seemed like a lot, although the number of abandoned houses in Detroit is more like 12,000. Encompassing an area of over 138 square miles, Detroit has enough room to hold the land mass of San Francisco, Boston, and Manhattan Island, yet the population has fallen from close to 2 million citizens, to most likely less than 800,000. With such a dramatic decline, the abandoned house problem is not likely to go away any time soon.”

Marina Abramovic meets Ulay
“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
