my webstore is live one day earlier than anticipated and this is the last post I’ll subject you to about it— I need to get back in the studio and back to work on some new pieces (as a result posts may be sparse for a bit).
For anyone interested in purchasing work I’ve added a special discount code just for tumblr followers that gives you 10% off— just enter 4TUMBLR at checkout.

transcribed from my sketchbook-
this is the essence of what is driving my work. It is the most simple, straightforward artist statement

fictional reconstruction of a moment

I am in the room I’ve built with my obsessions and biases)

this one, on the wall…
self portrait (hiding in a found glitch)
degraded note to self…
(from last month)
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.
a slight shift in the scale of the lines…
