Musings of the Artists Mind

My Blue Men keep on evolving, or so it was when I was making them. At the time I was working towards making an orchestra of heads on a single body. I got distracted and moved to other shapes.  

I’m not really sure where this one ended up, but I sold it here in Montreal to someone who moved to Hawaii. It’s fun to imagine it travelling the world, singing it’s unique harmonies wherever it goes. 

It’s partially inspired by African masks and Picasso’s Cubism, as well as my Mother’s singing choir. 

Come On, Let’s Save Mumford & Sons from themselves! When you design your world with The Artist’s Stuff: Prints, Fashion, and uniquely awesome Decor ideas!

What inspires an artist? 

“All they see” is the first and most literal answer. 

For me, that is literally hundreds of gallery & museum exhibits, thousands of books, and tens of thousands of images online.  

Books that Inspired and Influenced my Experimentation:

When asked where to start a book collections, I almost always recommend these art bibles: Janson’s “History of ArtOR Phaidon’s “The Art BookBoth give a nice overview with good pictures. Once you’ve discovered what you are attracted to there most, you can then dig deeper into that area.

These are perhaps the most accessible influences, but the truth is that my influences run deep through thousands of books and works I’ve seen & read. If you have the time, you are free to visit my GoodReads library to see a fraction of the books I’ve read. These are the ones I remember, that is. Or you can visit the ever growing collection on my Pinterest account.
