Wondering at The Eastside Culture Crawl 2013

The Eastside Culture Crawl is East Vancouver’s own open studio tour. I don’t go every year, but have gone for many years. It feels good to wander through studio space, smelling paint, sawdust, and sometimes coffee, tea, and cookies.

Wandering through a painting studio always gives me a sense of wonder, like I’m exploring a . . . → Read More: Wondering at The Eastside Culture Crawl 2013

Reporting Life: Creating blog musings, scribbles and other artifacts…

This is like an inventory of things I do to express myself. I don’t know why I nee to do a catalogue, but it feels right – like emptying a closet before you reorganize it.

DEVOlving: musings on art, music, and creative synthesis…

Yeah – I’m going through a DEVO phase again. I listen to their music all the time. Their voices and sounds are familiar, like visiting an old neighbourhood.

Lost and Found, in a MOOC…

For an assignment for the MOOC, eLearning and Digital Cultures, I created my first Prezi… It’s my little abstract reaction to the bewilderment of feeling lost inside a 40,000 member Massive Open Online Course.

Gallery-2557: Personal Drawing and Collage

Here’s a link to a new gallery on this site – a collection of personal drawings or collages that I’ve done since 1998.

If I draw, it can be immediate, messy and expressive, like the manic scribbles of an angry child. That feels good.
