Altered Book Sketchbook Project

It’s been a long time, folks. Teaching full-time, traveling, making art, living apart–I’m keeping busy. Yes, “living apart” fits in that list. Everything takes longer and costs more separately–cooking, washing up, running errands. There’s no backup. I’ve also been cheating on you, blog, with Instagram. Yes, we finally joined the 21st century with smart phones, […]

My First Zine: “Dear Google, What is the Cutest Puppy Ever?” And Other Drawings

What do you do when you’re feeling sad and/or bored? Google search for cute animal pictures, of course! Inspired in part by stumbling across Kristyna Baczynski’s work,  those illustrators I was swooning over a few days ago, and the long stream of graphic novels I continue to check out from our public library’s fairly decent collection, […]

Why Don’t You Draw A Picture? It’ll Last Longer! And Other Retorts in Part XIII of 939 Drawings: My Facebook Friends’ Profile Pictures in Watercolor & Ink

This is a rather small update on my Facebook Profile Picture Drawing Project. I just made another post in the series the day before yesterday, and this is what I have finished since then (+ a few started in on the next page that isn’t completed yet.) This post also contains yet another image that, […]

Sketchbook Party Trick: Inspiring Illustrators

Posted on Aug 29, 2013 in art, books | 3 Comments

John Hendrix Below is a list of random things I overheard or read and wrote down in large text in this red graph paper sketchbook I’ve been working in. They all feel significant to me for some reason. Most of them have drawings beside them and function as sort of captions. They probably don’t mean […]

Delayed Departure and a Tardy Part XII of 939 Drawings: My Facebook Friends’ Profile Pictures in Watercolor & Ink

Posted on Aug 28, 2013 in art, life, online, rants | 2 Comments

I’ve been busily working on our Etsy shop these past couple of weeks. Blake has started back to school (as of Monday.) And I’m still waiting on clearance from the immigration department so that I can pick a departure date, purchase my plane tickets, and finish packing my bags for the United Arab Emirates. I […]

It’s been over a month! I can hardly believe it. We traveled to Chicago & Detroit and Colorado & Iowa, then I heard my good news that I’m moving to the United Arab Emirates to teach for a year, then we’ve been traveling some more! We visited some of my family and friends in Georgia […]

Part X of 939 Drawings: My Facebook Friends’ Profile Pictures in Watercolor & Ink

Posted on Jul 12, 2013 in art, online | 3 Comments

I’ve broken the 300 mark (about 1/3 done on this project!). I got up early before work everyday this week to work on drawing the profile pictures of all of my Facebook friends, a project I set for myself earlier this summer. I realized in my last post that I was considerably behind schedule if […]

http://www.jameskimuragreen.com/ We calculated yesterday that I am about 180 drawings behind schedule on this Facebook Profile Pics Project. Eek! My original plan was to finish this project over the summer, in about 3 months’ time. I still hope to do that, but I’ve got some catching up to do! http://www.tatefoley.com/ As of last night, I’m […]

Wake Up! Drawing Coffee

I’m not really awake yet this morning! Up late last night playing Pictionary and then Trivial Pursuit. It was a blast! Mom and Sue are here visiting from Georgia. We spent several days in Chicago, and now we’re exploring Bowling Green. Detroit is up next! I’m working on scanning in more images for my Facebook […]
