More cuts of meat

I have always loved diagrams and especially these diagrams that show meat cuts. I feel like I may have a way to incorporate them into some new artwork soon.

iPad has inspired me

I was struggling with art for a little while there. However, the purchase of a shiny new iPad has altered my perception immeasurably. I have new ideas and with that I felt it was time to start utilizing this digital sketchbook again. I'll start with this random image of a scalextric track that seems like something I might find useful in art making.

Two new pieces based on some photographs I took from the top level of the parking structure at Cal State Long Beach. I like the god-like view. Like much of my digital work these pieces explore the space between photography and painting. Looking down on our environment is a some what unfamiliar perspective and gives a chance to assess out man-made landscape with a fresh eye. The manipulation of the image is an echo of the manipulation of our environment it's man's need to give order and to create structure.
