Captive Baby Wearing Stockings

New work. Hatched and stippled ink drawn from a tin type photo I collected in Platte City, MO. About 3X4" in size. The beginning of something...I hope.

Mrs. Edwards & Frl. Kussin (boxing) 1912

I was asked to make some drawings for an interior design project (thanks Meg!) and thought I'd share one of the final drawings. I really enjoy researching a topic when I make drawings...if possible. This project dealt with women and sports, so I went to the internet and looked up historic women's sports. This lead me to this famous image of two women boxing. I learned a little about these two particular women and their boxing match on March 7, 1912. I also learned a bit about women's boxing and the fact that it's taken over 200 years for it to be taken seriously. I'm not sure if I'm correct, but the London Olympics of 2012 might finally include it as a sport rather than an exhibition. Please make comments if I'm completely wrong about any of those facts...I can take a hit! :)

More of Jack's strategic toy placements...

Ankle Crosser

Jack is consistently crossing his ankles whenever he's sitting at the table, watching tv on the couch, or sitting on the floor. It is so amazingly adorable!

Ready Made Toy Sculptures and Juxtapositions

As Jack zooms around the house, his toys often land in the strangest places, and in very clever juxtapositions.  As I notice his little surprise sculptures, I'm photographing them to share his budding creativity.  Please remember, I merely document these ephemeral creations, the genius belongs to Jack.

Camera Envy

My mom and dad's first 'couple camera.' Maybe someday it will find itself in my studio. Not that I would probably shoot with it, I think the film is a pretty obsolete size, but it sure is a cutie.

Took a photo of it as inspiration...since I've been drawing all those camera people.

Drawing in progress ... may have found some momentum in the work...more to come.
