The 8 Faces of No Posts

Welcome to the new year and some new art…Expect to see some different thing posted over the coming weeks. Fair warning that it will not all be fly fishing related! These images are definitely a part of that “Not” fly fishing related thing I just mentioned.

I call them “The 8 Faces on New.” They were created one night while killing some time in front of the tv. All were completed on the iPad using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

Adventure and inspiration is wherever you happen to find it!

THE BEARS FISH

The piece below was done for Abel Reels as a new Tshirt design. If you have followed along for a while, you’ll know that I entered their “Reel Art” contest late last year…and came in second. But a few months later they contacted me about working on this.

This design is a take on the California flag and the fish within the bear is based on California’s State fish, the Golden Trout. The geographer in me took over at some point and I tried to incorporate all the varying geographic regions of the state within the bear. Enough talking…GO BUY ONE HERE!

Fly Fishing’s Venn Diagram

To honor John Venn’s 180th birthday, Google decided to make a handy dandy Google Doodle…And well, I needed to share this anyway and as soon as I saw the Goog this morning I new this was how it had to be done!

No matter how you enjoy fly fishing, be it from the surf, from the banks of a farm pond, right on down to your local river, or some far off destination I can only dream about…The excitement really happens the instant that fish meets your fly! That’s what this piece was all about…Enjoy

SUSPICIOUS FISHUS

My wife leaves town for a couple of weeks, and this happens…My first foray into making a sculpture.

The Suspicious Fishus – 34″ tall and 35″ wide, the base and supports are rough cut mesquite, and the fish is comprised of maple and red oak. All the pieces were hand cut, sanded and fitted.
