The Cooz Who Broke The Internet & other new works

Hello again everyone,

I hope anyone who celebrated the 4th of July had a great time.  I myself stayed indoors and worked the holiday away.  As you know, I took some time off this year and in an attempt to get back into my groove, I’ve been playing around with different mediums to see what fits.  Some of the experimentation has simply been returning to a medium like charcoal, that I haven’t used in years while other exercises have involved working with a medium like oil past that I’ve rarely made use of.  I’ve also been utilizing the ol’ ballpoint pen in sketchbook routine again as well as making mixed media transfer prints.

I think I’ve enjoyed the oil pastel undertakings the most.  I can make the pastel look like paint but I get do most of the work with my fingers.  I enjoy pushing and smearing the pastel around the work surface.  Below are photos of the eclectic fruits of my labor.  I hope you enjoy them.
