Travel Photo of the Week #2

Sagrada Familia Basilica, Barcelona, Spain (2007)

An amazing church designed by Antoni Gaudi, started in 1882 and probably never to be completed.  The Sagrada Familia is an amazing amalgamation of architectural designs and is a must-see when visiting Barcelona.  I love the city and I love Gaudi's surreal Gothic style!  For more of his work, see Casa Mila and Park Güell.

Woolly Mammoth - Final Image

Woolly Mammoth 
(click to enlarge)

This final image was created by pencil drawing, digital colouring, and photoshopping onto photograph background (image by Craig Dylke).  You can follow the making-of by clicking here.

The impetus for creating this beasty was ART Evolved's Elephant Gallery, up now.  Go check out all the other pachyderms by talented artists!  Go!

Travel Photo of the Week #1

Into the Future: Disneyland's Tomorrowland (1996)

Starting of with something weird and artsy and old.  Blurred light effects, motion, colour...

Ushering in 2011

Last night, the world clock ticked over from 2010 to 2011, and with it, the infinite possibilities of a new year ahead!  Time to seize those possibilites...

To begin with, it must be noted that I have been posting less and less here (only 40 posts last year!)  I don't feel the desire to write about my personal life, nor have I done much traveling recently.   Somewhere in 2010, I made a conscious decision to transform "Bond's Blog" into a space to showcase art and give a peek into creation.  I never fully completed that transition.

So my plans for 2011 include creating the formal art communication space here.  More shared art, more artistic updates, and artsy travel photograph-of-the-week type posts to start.  Organization and planning is key!  I am also committing myself right now to the creation and completion of some sort of kids book - something I have been dancing around for the last few years.  It's time to do something about it.

2010 also saw the continued evolution of ART Evolved as a more significant force in the paleo-art-isphere.  The continuation of the every-two-month galleries and an increase in article content, along with the highly successful Pink Dinosaur cancer campaign, has given me huge satisfaction.  I also plan on spending more energy in 2011 so ART Evolved can grow even bigger!

Thanks to all my friends and followers for a great 2010.  Here's to a fantastic 2011!
