I’ve returned to a collaboration with Toni Tiller, making conceptual images illustrating her dream narratives. She posts her dreams at www.http://lastnightsdreams.wordpress.com/page/2/.

This is a conceptual mixed media sketch on paper, one of a few I’ll make for her dream, posted on 3/17/13, “Doing yoga with a ninja”.

She was enjoying a bit of late summer sun  before heading back to the grind.

My cat’s sick, my car’s in the garage, I’m doing commercial work and I’ve got several unfinished paintings in a state of mess in my studio, so I’m posting this simple direct mixed media sketch. My alma mater won at the Garden in OT, though, so that mitigates something. I think.

Another quick sketch between lunch and the next thing.

I’m thinking about the cottage and the lobster and the sea. Not that this image necessarily says that.

That sounds like a good title for a hard-boiled pulp detective novel by someone named Max Phillips, doesn’t it?
