A new mega-gram for mid-August.

I have spent so much time on trains in the last two years that they have invaded my thoughts and dreams. This image is built from a quick sketchy painting of Tacoma at dusk from the old Amtrak station. Other imagery includes some photos from my last (literally) morning train commute up to Seattle and a snippit of journaling from my newsletter.

I like this idea of mixing my snapshots and my paintings together. In reality photos and paintings are oil and water. If they’re all digital they’re all equivalent and they blend together colored water.

Digital media is intrinsically a collage, might as well embrace it.
