Fly High Butterfly

Butterfly Chalk Drawing

Two of many reasons I fell in love:

· Her humour & imagination.

· Her incredible drawings.

She’s a wonderful mother … Our daughter is so lucky.

Jade's Cool Chalk Drawing

Jade drew the fun character and then I thickened the lines (above).

We made a bunch of drawings and Jade danced around (below).

Summer Dancing

Jade thinks everyone should dance in the sun.

Her butterflies are flittering the right of the page.

The ascending “M’s” are Jade’s talking symbols.

The Animated GIF: The Antithesis of Mindfulness

Personally, I love rich visual imagery … It’s the way I think and communicate.

For me, the best Art has ambiguity. I like having the time and silence to appreciate and question.

But now, EVERYDAY feels like an animated gif. The average person is exposed to 3,500 advertising messages a day. We devour images, resources and ideas.

And along the way, maybe we’re debasing and dehumanizing ourselves?

Chalk Art Lane

My wife and a detail of our large drawing. We are the people in your neighbourhood (haha).

Yea, we like to draw … we probably drive all our neighbours crazy.

Shapes & Doodles

Jade & I collaborate with chalk art at the farmer’s market kid zone.

I’ll draw the shapes, Jade’ll draw the details (faces in shapes, shoes, arms, etc.)

Jade’s Drawing: Winging It !

At this party, everyone is colourful and flying.

Jade drawing with her soother … It helps her get in “the zone.” (haha)

Picking Blackberries

Jade and I LOVE picking (and of course eating) berries.

Official Blackberry Tester … To ensure “quality control”, Jade always tests the berries for me.

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly Doodle

I was inspired by a great butterfly and caterpillar library book the other day.
