Here’s a self-portrait I did for my 48th birthday party invite. I based the drawing on a photo on me emerging from a quick dunk in 14°C Lake Huron.
Luckystar Studio‘s Gene Evans reminded me that DC Comics has declared July 23 Batman Day. It’s been 75 years since the Caped Crusader first appeared in Detective Comics. I’m not much of a comic book guy, but Batman’s cultural DNA, a crazy mix of camp and fascism, has always appealed to me. Happy birthday, you Batusi-dancing, neck-wrenching orphan!
My entry for the Hamilton Public Library’s art book bag project made the short list. The drawing of the city’s iconic steel mills spewing out plumes of books was not chosen, but I am happy to have been considered. One of Swizzle Studio’s goals in 2014 is to submit to more of these sort of open calls.
