the gazette

So this wonderful site turns 14 today. Holy Moses!  I can't believe this site is 14 years old and I've been a part of it as a member for 11 years. Anyway, I'll keep this short as I'm not much of a writer so here's my story on DA in a nut shell.

I've been coming to this site since 2002, drawm to it (Ha HA, no pun intended) by the large Wallpaper gallery and I was really into desktop wallpapers at the time. I found that the more I looked throughout the wallpaper gallery, the more I got inspired and decided to create my own wallpapers and share it with the community. I joined up with DA in June of 2003. Being the introverted artist that I am, I was nervous at first but found a small group of artist's, with a few stand out internet artist friends,  that I still talk with and get inspired by; I'm looking at you gregoriousone and Senecal, among others.

It's funny to look back and my gallery and see the Time line of DA and bask in the flood of memories from the meteoric rise of deviantArt which brought about the Bandwidth Crisis, the drama around Jark, the artist friends the came and went, with a llama or two here and there. I've seen my art work mature along the way too, helped in part by the wonderful, talented, and amazing artists that I've found here and gotten to know and be inspired by.

Happy Birthday, dA!

Molten by cogwurx
Mixed Media on Masonite
(Oil, Acrylic, Paper)

As the story goes, this piece started out as sort of a collage with a coffee theme to it...but the more I worked on it the more it evolved...mutated if you will into the current visual you see.

So this painting also made me realize that I'm not so much a collage artist as I thought I was and the lovely wallpaper patterns that I've collect for so many years must now be thrown away. I used several pieces of wallpaper in this an they are all but hidden under layers of paint. *sigh*

Brambles And Blue

Oil on canvas

I initially had this idea to make this into a design for a skateboard deck, but the design didn’t really feel right as the painting evolved. I may still put this on a skateboard once I get a better photograph, we’ll see.

I really like these Morpho butterflies!

Flutter by cogwurx


28” x 18”
Oil on Canvas

This was an interesting painting to work on. I had a composition in mind, but after I completed the composition it didn’t look good, so I went back to my sketch and reworked the composition. The result was this more organic piece with the addition of the butterfly, which I really like. I enjoyed painting the butterfly I may want to find another excuse to do another painting with a butterfly.
