ceramic splotch monsters and flowers!

Last Saturday our friend Jeff Herrity gave Kris and I some wonderful little ceramic gifts he made for us, while we were at his latest art opening, Transmorgrifications. Can you guess which one is Kris' and which one is mine? In the meantime, I blogged about Jeff's amazing show HERE!

glow-in-the-dark mind.forms splotch monster collab

Well, they really don't glow in the dark, but one can pretend. Thought I'd have a little fun with these in Photoshop, taking this collaboration with Pixo another step further, even if just a little bit.

new (and old) collaborations with pixo

The pictures above are a look at a new collaboration with my Canadian collaborator friend Donald Lee, aka Pixo/Pixo-Hammer/Mind.Forms. For more years than I can keep track of, Donald has been a Blogger friend of mine, where he runs his 10,000 page Colouring Book blog, among others. We've done collabs in the past, where he'd draw through digital means on blank paint splotches I'd make, but this is the first time I mailed him a few pages to draw on using brush and ink. I'm downright in awe of the results so far, as they're, in all honesty, more interesting and exciting than anything I've done with my "Splotch Forms", in my opinion, and his style and approach is altogether different than mine. I can't tell you how thrilled I am about these. 

Below are some examples of past collaborative projects we've worked on as well, all of which illustrate the limitless creative approaches one can take with this kind of thing. Can't wait to see what Donald comes up with next. In the meantime, don't forget to follow Donald's mind.forms Instagram feed!
