art for SFBC Winterfest

I donated this piece to the SFBC (San Francisco Bicycle Coalition) Winterfest 2011 Art Auction. It's happening this coming Sunday, December 4 in San Francisco. More info on the event is available here. I am a proud member of the bike coalition and encourage those of you out there that are bicyclists to join up. You get great discounts all over town and, at the same time, help make SF a more bike friendly town!

looking at

I picked up this new book documenting Jim Denevan's large scale drawing on Lake Baikal in Siberia. (I also got to meet him and had him sign my copy!) It's full of gorgeous photos and includes a film of the project. I was so inspired by a number of things: the sheer beauty of the drawing, the enormous scale of the project, the collaborative nature of it all and the willingness to create something so ephemeral. The film delves a bit into what it all means to the artist as well. Learn more about the project here.
