I thought I’d take a quick moment to say hi and tell you/show you a bit about me (mainly for those of you who are newer visitors/followers)
My name is Kevin—
I’m an Artist/Educator (geek, husband and dad too) living and working in Boston. That’s me up in the top two images (both are self portraits from ballpoint pen drawing workshops) and the rest of the images are some examples of what I’ve been working on recently.
I post in three places on tumblr, this blog (7knotwind) is my primary blog where I post everything- these pages reflect whatever I’m interested in, thinking about, inspired by and working on.
I also maintain a process blog: wrk-kevintownsend that documents what I’m working on in the studio (good, bad and everything in between).
Recently I started a 3rd tumblr for a new series of daily drawings that I’m working called Circadian-line.
I’m always interested in hearing what you have to say and try to reply to any legitimate message (usually privately)
an extra special thanks to those of you who’ve been around for a while, I am incredibly appreciative of your continued kindness, comments and attention.
some thoughts from an ongoing conversation with fellow tumblr nealrya. (I apologize for my profound lack of skill with regards to written expression)
Art is still very much intertwined with all things TUMBLR, In many ways Art on TUMBLR is being used to gentrify the web the way it has previously been used to gentrify neighborhoods. see: the village, SOHO, Chelsea, Williamsburg etc…
for the record, Tumblr IS being used in many more (interesting) ways than I have mentioned here…
thanks for taking the time to read this
fluid and dissuading
elusive, ignorant truth
erratic, whitewashed monuments
