to today (My Grandpa's Birthday:)
Another Name Miles Frode The Artist Goes by…
also i have gone by The Vagabond Wordsmith and my
dads brother, "Uncle John" once unknowingly gave me my first Emcee name
or Moniker having slipped me one
of his classic notes with numbers and words…
I remember asking him …"what this meant?…"
pointing to 'WindLung' typed onto this money'd payment gift
he was sharing….and i can still hear him
saying…"Just a lill' something special"… and than winked followed by his
one and a billion mannerism finger roll off exitement.
(artshow behind is also my art)
immersed in cataloging my WHOLE ART COLLECTION
(I was planning to finish by my 31st b-day, tomorrow. 4-29)
and helping my mom finish up the VOGUE PATTERNS article
we've been collaborating on for more than 4 months.
It's slated for a fall issue.
I will keep you posted:D
So heres a few pieces on matt board and cardboard
i was blessed to acquire for a 'homeless' guy named Tom
who had a Japanese character tattooed with blue ink over his third eye,
Whom i met when i was vagabonding in cali a little more than 4 years ago
as he was setting up his work in window ledges of a closed coffee shop downtown Santa Cruz.
I love to collect contemporary artists work so much!
Heres a few gouache and ink pieces
from a sketchbook i took to Taos when
i was a guest teacher at a Design Outside the Lines retreat last year.
so theres a smattering of one of my many sketchbooks
i will also be counting in my cataloging.
Just counted and cataloged this piece today
is rare for me…
in the sense that i painted 'from' a black and white photo
that i took in the santa cruz mountains.
oil pastel on navy colored mat board
$250 +shipping and handling
above is a visual sampling of
one of my sketchbook collab trades
This one is with Ray Swaney
over the span of the last 3 years.
What do you as a Viewer/ Reader want to see more of?
Are you one of my Fashionistas hoping for more of my fine art Fabrics?
Or are you wanting to see more of my block prints with runs still open?
…or More of my Hip hop?
PLease comment and help me stay in
the orbit of your interest:)
Thank you as always
May The Muse Be With You!
