One of the benefits of living in a college town is that you don't often run out of things to do that are free. That's right, New Yorkers- free.
To the left is the recently expanded and renovated University of Michigan Art Museum. It has a pretty expansive collection, a nice rotation of shows, and anytime I'm out and about in town I can just walk right in if I so desire. It's a nice place for some inspiration. There are times for me when a museum feels so large and important that the inspiration feels forced. Almost as if I am in that location to learn a very important lesson. And I better learn it. But the UMMA is a nice size. It's more like an Aesop's fable instead of War and Peace.
Not that I'm putting down War and Peace.
For as sunny and warm and summery as the weather has been here, I've been knocking around ideas about early spring. Below are some sketches.
Don't bond to these images too much. It's still too early!
I have no idea why the drawing above is showing up blue. That's all for now. I apologize again for the delay in posts. Phil and I received a fancy new computer and we are slowly getting it together. Thanks for reading!

To your left is the Northside diner in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I currently live. It might not look like much, but I'm pretty sure it's one of the happiest places on earth. Philip and I tend to go there whenever it's raining. Like today. Today is a day for galoshes and yellow raincoats and mulling over ideas.
If I had any ideas. But I don't.
I apologize for the gap in posting. I returned from a business-y trip to New York and felt like hibernating for a while. Since I'm still feeling a little artistically lost, I thought today I would share some Amos art for a rainy day. The images below are from the book that Phil wrote that will be out next spring.
I thought the drawing above is a nice picture for a rainy day.
Ta ta for now! I'll be better about posting from here on. Thanks for reading!
