Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Mr. Joe Smith: Creative Muscle's recovering Color Tard. Although his MansLator comp lacked pizazz this week, he was the first to complete his sculpey color triangle. What a trooper.

Color Theory in Sculpey

This is fascinating exercise I found on this very cool beelog. I'm considering adding it to the mix of color exercises we do in Creative Muscle.

Mom's new work

Here's a beautiful new painting by Mom, who has gotten her painting groove back after adjusting to life as a full-time grandmother. :)

New Painting

Here's a painting Mom did of me, Ruthie and Bjorn a while back, set in the old mountain house we had up in Highlands, NC. I love the two little fuzzy black & white dogs at my feet. We still miss Ruthie.

For the Disgruntled Singles on Valentine's Day

We had a blast in Holy Hand this morning. Kevin whipped out his new copy of Hand Job and we all got to work with some down and dirty emotive type. Mike drew this gem and I colored the screws with lovely fleshy tones of pink. Nice, huh? I'd love to do a whole line of offensive holiday cards for folks not in the mood to celebrate.

And speaking of new books about type, I'm interested in New Vintage Type by Steven Heller. Anyone got it and love it? Tell me!
