Jade Loves Grandma

Jade Loves Grandma
My doodle on Grandma’s fridge.



Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.

A quick drawing for Jade from last year.

Last week was really wet … Finally the rain stopped.

Great day enjoying the flowers outside together.

My little daughter has so much energy.

Jade’s my wild flower.

She’s the wildest rose.

Lady Bug Express … Special Delivery !!!


Jade received a beautiful letter last week from a guest drawer  !!!

Ziggy Short Crust is on a quest to revive the lost art of letter writing.

This is her  post about Jade’s letter.




The drawings, writing and details are so beautiful!

During Christmas, we set up a pretend mail box.

Jade couldn’t believe it … A real letter for her !!!




After the letter, Jade demanded some lady bug puddle jumping!

Thank you so much Ziggy for brightening our rainy day!

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?

Good Bye Sunshine

Looks like the long stretch of amazing weather is over.

It was great while it lasted.

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.
