The Most Soulful of Caterslinks
Today’s “fan art” comes courtesy of my amazing girlfriend, Azucena Nava-Moreno. Here’s her take on one of the rarer species of caterslink to inhabit the Jungle Oasis.
As an artist, I find inspiration from a lot of other artists that I really love. It couldn’t be more true in this case since this artist also happens to be my “special lady friend,” Azucena Nava-Moreno. We just finished setting up her brand new website which is full of wondrous things. Click on the pic below and go look. You’ll be amazed. And I ain’t just sayin’ that ’cause she’s my girlfriend.
I thought I’d share these wood block paintings that my super-amazing girlfriend, Azucena Nava-Moreno, is doing for a gallery show (not sure which one or where yet). Anyway, we’re working on a website for her so she can strut more of her stuff. For now, I give you these works in progress!
We made every attempt to make it to the James Gurney Dinotopia exhibit in Midland, Michigan over the weekend, to no avail. Managing to get there with ten minutes to closing, we couldn’t justify full price – nearly a dollar a minute. So instead of cool photos of me and Azucena standing next to Gurney’s incredible art, I’ll offer a link to his blog instead. Gurney Journey is not just a peek into the art of the creator of the Dinotopia series of books, it’s an in-depth course in art history, processes, and anatomy. Check it out!
