Surfing for Art

Surfing online one day not too long ago, I came across an artist from Santa Cruz. Jim Denevan is I guess you can say, a performance artist, creating massive, “temporary drawings on sand earth and ice that are eventually erased by waves and weather.” His perfect geometry and trickery of the eye is something to behold. If I knew where he was working next I would love to watch him at work. See his Sand portfolio and other work on his website, www.jimdenevan.com. Denevan is also involved in an elaborate international traveling project called Outstanding in the Field, inspired by farm to table dining. Read more here. Find Jim Denevan on Facebook.

Its a bouncing baby blog!

I was recently helping a musician friend, Emily Bonn finish up the Photoshop artwork for her new CD cover. Afterwords, we went out for pizza and beer, and the subject of turning 40 came up. We were talking about a whether we’ve had a change in attitude, or different goals at this age than we had before. For me, ’40’ and ‘personal branding’ seemed to collide this year, and social networking is a big part of that. As the world population becomes obsessed with blogging and tweeting, I decided to jump on the bandwagon. After updating my website, and getting my feet wet on Twitter, I knew it was the right time for me to have a baby blog.
