I work in two main areas here: My own art, and conversion of out of copyright materials. I love both tasks equally, and wish you most welcome. Both my own art and some of what I convert contain some PG-13 items. To see everything that’s available, you’ll have to log in – but if you’re OK just seeing the non PG-13 materials, you’re good to go.

My own artwork includes painting, photography, and illustration. The materials I convert – either to vector, or simply by color correction – cover a somewhat wider range, with a bit of a fixation on children’s and scientific materials.

All materials here are organized by tag. You can – and probably should – search for more than one tag. Thus, searching for wetdryvac finds all my work here. Searching for wetdryvac and glitch would find all my work on the glitch project.

My own projects are tagged as follows:

Mixed, media, photography, poetry, watercolor, inversion, brush, ink, silkscreen, B&W, digital, paint, HDR, and color are more or less self-explanatory. WDV stands for Watercolor Inversion, a painting that’s painted with digital inversion in mind as the final. WDVH includes watercolor and other processes on large media, likewise inverted. WDVMM covers inverted mixed media of all sizes. WDVT involves toned paper and sometimes involves inversions – but not always. Ink Pulls use silk screen approach but without the mesh or screen – just ink, paper, and a squeegee. WDVP covers inverted watercolor and mixed media portraits.

Individual series include: Hills, Telegraph Wind, Bangfortune, Chemistry – mostly digital signs of chemical formulas, Hills, Katzen, Sherlock, Math Signs, Occupy and Democracy, Of Shield, Pastels, Pencil works, Poster, Thinkbag comic, original Vector works, Weather Spirits, Webwork, and Scattered Resistance.

Projects based on other materials, the requirements for being that they’re out of copyright and in the public domain:

The Glitchen Project: Tremendous thanks to the folks at Tiny Speck, using materials sourced from – making their materials public domain was one of the most excellent things ever. Project elements are tagged as follows, with base tags of Glitchen and Glitch. Individual categories of Glitch categories: Alchemy, Artifact, Furniture, Beans, Collection, Compounds, Cubimals, Drinks, Food, Harvestable, Resources, Herbs, Inhabitants, Keys, Miscellaneousness, Music, Blocks, musicblock, party, pack, pumpkins, quest, coats, dresses, masks, pants, hats, mask, masks, seeds, shirts, shoes, shrines, skirts, spices, trophies, alpine, firebog, groddle, homes, ilmenskie, ix, overlay, furniture, wardrobia

The USGS map conversion project: Base Tags: USGS – all items. topo – All topographic items. Subtags in this project are by state, town, year, and catalog number where applicable. Some lake and ocean features are also included.

Specific artist and science projects, focusing on image cleanup and modification for print friendliness:

Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn: Paintings and illustrations, tagged by type of work, title, and year. Most source material with thanks to the Rijks Museum.

Projects based on books are tagged by author, illustrator, title, title of plate, illustration, and similar. Where taxonomy or heraldry is included, Latin names, English names, and as much other detail as possible is included in the tags. Books from which material has been converted are listed below, and because artwork is the focus, illustrators are given name precedence in the list.

Working with the public domain images – about 9200 of ’em, of which I expect to color correct and edit about 100-300. I grew up with dreams of the moon, expecting to see more folks go there in my lifetime, so having this material released into the public domain in 2015 is mind-bendingly awesome. / All shots are from Hasselblad cameras, square format. / I’ll probably end up doing…
