My Relationship with Perry Mason, Part 47 of ?

I don’t even know how to begin to document my relationship to “Perry Mason” (the television series staring Raymond Burr. (I also enjoy the new version with Matthew Rhys but I’ve been saving the final episodes of that since it hasn’t been renewed for a third season, but that will definitely have to be a […]

What I Did in the Pandemic: Thoughts

The page spread from 2020 is the post. That’s a sketch of a chef on one of the many cooking competition shows I watch. It’s simply fun to watch people create things.

What I Did in the Pandemic: Journaling of Course

Roz: I used to go out and overlisten…can’t think of the word…eavesdrop. Dick: Yeah, “overlisten”: You made up a new word for overhearing. [Above: an actual conversation recorded on an index page.] Returning readers will know that there were some digital glitches just when the Pandemic got started. My Drobo died and had to rebuild […]

Life Hacks and Westerns

The theme from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” is being whistled a lot around here lately. Every time I enter a room where Dick is for instance if I’m wearing my shawl. I learned something when I was in the hospital in September—You cannot braid your hair when you have an IV in […]

Good Costume Design

You know a TV or movie has good costume design when even a crap warm-up drawing conveys a sense of angles and era. Here’s a warm up sketch of “Detective Sgt. Strange” (actor Sean Rigby) from “Endeavour.” The costume lines are so “sixties-in-Britain.” “Endeavour” has ended, but you can still stream it on PBS and […]

In Context: Trying to Catch Up…

I’ve been relocating my studio and trying to unpack and organize. I think I’m getting to the end then I see another box, and behind that another box. Sometimes I wonder why I didn’t leave most of those boxes in storage. But right now I can’t go there mentally. I need to keep opening and […]

A Cut Above—Wood Carving Competition Show

Spoiler alert, I’m going to write about who won “A Cut Above” season one. Don’t read if you want to watch a chainsaw-woodcarving composition and be surprised.     First I just have to say I love Adam Beach. He’s a great actor and now we know he’s a great TV show host too—who absolutely […]

Studies: Observing the Subject Over and Over

Studies are something all visual artists do, pretty much every day.  Studies are about cementing the observation of a subject into a visual approach you can apply to your paper or canvas. But studies don’t always happen before you make a more finished piece. On this page spread, which is in a Canson 180 Sketchbook […]

In Context: I Invent a New Game for Two Or More

You can read the text on the page spread if you click to enlarge it. As to the brush and ink wash sketch—I was watching the Great British Baking show that evening.

Try, Try Again

I watch the British Police drama “Vera.” (In the US you can see it on PBS, but awhile back I started watching it on Britbox and think the episodes come in a bit earlier.)  I watch it because I’m totally in love with Brenda Blethyn. She’s so amazing. But as I’ve already discussed on my […]
