I have sketchbooks sitting all over the house. I have one in the living room that I only draw robots in. It is a mixed bag of images, the only rule is it must be a robot. It is amazing how quickly you can run out of ideas, this is when you desperately push past more obvious concepts and come up with some pretty off the wall stuff. I think this one is my favorite so far.
Best of all, I built a little gallery space in the front of the shop to display the work of local artists. Our friend Gemma graciously volunteered her work for the virtual gallery. I like the idea of an artist having a show open in cyberspace that allows you to purchase original paintings and prints in the real world.
You can see and purchase Gemma's paintings at RedBubble.

I intend the tiles to be viewed in one linear row, so the eye can follow the Faire from the front ticket gate back to the Ale Stand at the “End of the World”. I have many more to do, but thought I would preview a few of the ones I have completed so far.
