Wrinkle by Wrinkle

For anyone following my blog, I’m sure you’re wondering, when will DFA #1 (a.k.a. the elephant drawing) be done. I hear this a lot from friends. The answer is, it’s still several months away from completion.

Why is it taking so long?

Well… I’m not a full-time artist. I’m currently working on wildfires, and my pencil only hits the paper between field assignments. Come the end of the fire season, I’ll be on DFA #1 non-stop until completion.

For those of you who have followed me this far, thank you!!! I have some big plans for the completed drawing and prints. I look forward to sharing the experience on my blog.

Cheers!

An Artist’s Website

After three days of design, coding (sort of), and content creation, my WordPress website/blog is up and running. WordPress makes it pretty easy, though knowledge of HTML and CSS is helpful.

I’ve looked at dozens of artist’s websites to see what the trends are. I deviated from the norm a bit, opting to place emphasis on the blog, and my current project, Drawings for Africa, instead of a gallery of work, as other artist’s tend to do.

I’ve tried to keep things simple. The blog will be the most dynamic part of the site, with updates, videos and pictures, and highlights of other enjoyable moments posted every week or two.

The purpose for this website is twofold, 1) to convey the story of my artwork, and 2) to provide a way for me to share news and information on environmental problems. I hope that my posts will serve as food for thought.

If you have any ideas or suggestions to improve this site, please feel free to comment.
