Art Exchange

Life has been busy but I am now finding the time to do some art. Yay!
My class (MFA, Hartford, 2015) has started an art exchange which means that twice a year we send off a piece of art to a former classmate and in turn we receive work. Below is my piece for Susannah, inspired by the waffle maker at the Avon Residence Inn, Connecticut (our "home" while at school) and my love of cephalopods.  It was fun to do.

At right is a quick cartoon in support of Ali (aka "Eaten Fish") a 25 year old Iranian cartoonist who, in 2013, sought asylum in Australia and is now incarcerated in an immigration detention camp on Manus Island.  Ali’s case has caused much concern as he is subjected to repeated assaults, bullying and is in need of medical care.  Story here: CNRI and online petition.
