Wine, Love, and Lyrics in a time of Quarantine.

Good heavens. it has been so long since I last updated this poor blog. The longer I left it, the harder it was to return. And then so much life happened—love and death and art and tragedy that has left me a different person, and anyway is far too much to sum up here even if most of it wasn't too personal.

But I like blogging and I like having a little hub for my work. So even though Instagram has wormed its way into being the main place that I toss my most current art and updates, I'm going to try to give this old space some more attention, from time to time, whether anyone is really reading or not.

And in that spirit, here is a short series of illustrations I did to go along with a special curbside wine sale organized by The Locke Store in Millwood, Virginia. The idea being that the first ten people to order a case of wine would also get a piece of original art. The illustrations quickly developed a little theme (Wine and love and music and separation) and a feeling of a very loose story. I find myself wanting to do more with these two romantic vagabonds. Time will tell. For now, enjoy:

This last picture isn't really of a piece with the series above, but I like it and it was part of the wine sale.

And that's all for today! Stay safe my friends.
