Collection: Amidst assembling scrapbooks

Snaps of scrapbooks in midst of assembly – both in creation of the actual scrapbook (which creates a lovely substate, as-it-were), the scraps readied to go within to make the scrapbooks into a scrapjournals,… plus kit(s) of tools on the ready, and the workspaces used to do both building and filling, are documented – for no distinct reason than enjoyment of the process.

Signs in the Wild – You and me against the world

Not all prophets write on the subway cars…
Some of these notes are truth – indeed not all #prophets write on the subway cars, some choose cardboard or other substrates yet the medium & message are equally compelling the message is the medium.

At Sea: 4 Insta snaps (with orange sweater and coffee mug)

Presented without annotations. Just a guy, at sea, with beverage – jauntily leaning at times, even posing cheekily or cheerily. Content at the moment. (snapped with Fuji Insta-camera)

Meet some fine artists at Creepers and Chums

Scant days until we commune together beneath the granite peaks of Little Cottonwood Canyon for the Creepers and Chums tribute wake for Lauralee and Rod Ash.

As such, I am pleasantly happy to introduce you to some of my favourite artists, as well as share some of my recent writings and interesting hats, with you.

May I present a few snapshots with some of these lovely co-conspirators? Pardons for the self-indulgence, i’m more than a wee bit excited and hope/suspect you will find a new favourite artist or 3.

Meet: Matt Layzell, Geoff Petrie, Larry Harper, Trevor Erikson, Nikos Paraskevas, James Zepp, Ronit Bhujel, Marty Kendall and others in this non-annotated gallery of renegades.

Mikael Lewis (aka Butterfield) will “headline” the gig with his blues guitar meets singer-songwriter goodness
