Some MMA fighters drawn with a mouse
This is specifically for Leo Svirsky…
I hope this is a thing you can cross this off that list they gave you.

The dfscore: a short intro
It is best accessed on his site directly by following this link: FOCI Arts – Art and Athletics 4
but I have also included this version below for those that just happen across my site willy-nilly….
Introduction by Ray Evanoff
One of the parallels between athletics and art is that both are personal practices. The daily endeavors of such practice become ritualized over time. The repetitive work therein becomes a study of one’s self, forming inroads to unarticulated regions. These regions may be defined or clarified or altered or reflected by the practices that illuminate them. Athletic and artistic practice may thus connect with other parts of life.
Here artist Angela Guyton branches both outward and inward from her physical practice, charting regions along the way that are both personal and broadly applicable. Her’s is a reflection on the body as medium for the insubstantial but intensely significant. She is an overlap between athlete and artist.
I drew them / he paired them with the English middle names they’d be yelling out.
Above: Ingrid Mouth and Christian Wilde. They are my favorite porn actors and they started following me on Instagram because of this drawing! (which now belongs to Richard Craig)
Ingrid Mouth is also ONE HELL of an artist and you should check out HER TUMBLR.
…because everyone should have a little Rodrigo in their life.
I’ve been threatening to make these for over a year and have finally done it. This is my first attempt at resin casting, and also I don’t do too much 3D work anyway…in fact, none at all. Perhaps that will change because this process was really really exciting.
SO–These are the guts! Just a little aluminium foil and some toothpicks to keep it all together.
Then I sculpted him in sculptey
Here he is being shown from whence he came! The silicon mold. He lost a hand in the process of removing him from this thing. That’s ok though.
LEGION! I made these in resin. Some are pink and some I kept in the opaque resin’s off-white.
I just needed to clean them up a little and paint in the eyes then they’re ready to go out to friends.

and then a flash of recognition
“Oh Yoshi, it’s you!”
Angie and Rod, Millie and Mako, and the beach in picture frames.
Making these fulfils something in my long making-things-cycle (there are other cycles, like my daily routine, but my long cycle spans several months). In tandem I am also drawing nature (mostly flora) from observation, reading more than at other points, and running for distance rather than speed. All this stuff goes together right now. It all has to do with an enjoyment of breathing….I think. It’s like I’m drinking out of a big novelty straw as opposed to one of those little cocktail straws. And that is so close to how it actually feels that that is barely a simile.

It rains a lot in Manchester so most of these have been made in the rain. Consequently, the rain plays with the ink.
This is one of my favorite flowers–it just grows in my backyard.
I don’t know what it is called, so if you know please send me a message They are called Aquilegia! (Thank you Rebecca for asking your grandmother who is a flower expert!). They look like little delicate pink hearts at the end of green veins.
Puffins! Drawn on the Farne Islands in Northern England. It was also rainy.
