DRIFT part 1

two children adrift on the sea of the earth's atmosphere, their ship a home-made rocket

A lot of people have resonated with this cute digital painting of two children navigating the sea of outer space on their home-made rocket, powered by a star. I’m even proud to say it took 1rst Place at Digitized back in 2011! It’s knocked around town in several places and forms (more on that next post) and finally come to settle on Society6 and Redbubble. But there’s more to the children’s story:

This piece actually has a place in my personal mythology. The two children are the same kids from Atomic Jazz!

a bright and glorious titanic jellyfish fills the sky, bringing either destruction or new life and vitality to the city below as two children placidly watch.

These two children are my son (right now still in pre-school, I aged him for these pictures) and the little sister I thought he might end up having one day. This little sister is also one of the two possible children filling out the mysterious raincoat in The Seashore:

A child in a red raincoat stands on shore and regards a sailboat while holding a bundle of brightly colored floating jellyfish balloons.

I made these three pieces when I had my son and was aware I was going to have a younger child to accompany him through life, but didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl. The little girl would have been called “Violet,” and so that is her name in these pictures. I did eventually have my second child, a merry little boy! And so “The Seashore,” which I deliberately kept ambiguous, turned out to be the first picture of him in my series of fantasy children.

Take Me With You

This piece featured recently in my November 2013 solo show as a collage with added thread and bead elements augmenting the tentacles. I may make more little collage pieces from it for the upcoming April 5th Art in the Wild show at Wesselman’s Nature Center in Evansville, IN.
