“Architecture creates such interesting spaces to enjoy as it intersects the sky. It is humanity and God playing, as long as we respect the earth from which the towers emerge.” – BZTAT
Today’s artwork is what I call a digital sketch. I do not carry a sketchbook with me like many artists do, but I consider my iPhone a sketchbook of sorts. Like I would with a sketch pad, I capture moments of creative inspiration with my iPhone, and I later embellish certain sketches into more finished artworks.
I posted this picture from Sammy’s Metropolitan Restaurant on the top of the Huntington Building in Cleveland, OH recently, and so many people enjoyed it, I thought I would make a print for today’s Okey October artwork.
In honor of my cat Okey whose “Gotcha Day” is October 30, I am making an artwork every day in October, and posting it here on my blog. As I have done with “drawing a day” activities in the past, each artwork will be available for bidding in an auction in the blog post dedicated to it.
Along with each artwork will be a “Thought for the Day” that will offer some kind of encouragement about overcoming challenges.
Okey has inspired a worldwide movement to bring awareness to the links between animal abuse, child abuse and domestic violence called: Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause. All of the proceeds for the auctions will go towards the Okey’s Promise: Celebrating the Human – Animal Bond project, which is my second Okey’s Promise public art project.
My recent Kickstarter fund raising campaign for the project fell short of its goal, so I have had to start over with the fund raising. You can contribute here if you would like to support the project outside of the auctions.
To make it a little more fun, I am going to have a special contest! Everyone who bids on one of the Okey’s October artworks here on the blog will be entered into a contest for a free artwork! You don’t have to win a bid, just make a bid. All bidders will be entered into a random drawing for a special artwork at the end of the month.
