As crazy as it may sound, lately, I’ve been furiously trying to crank out at least one very nice, high-level artwork Art boomerang per day, on the average.  Even though that seems to be an unlikely goal to maintain, I’ve pretty much been able to achieve it, at least for the past two weeks or so.  Those that follow this blog closely have undoubtably noticed that my efforts have been rather feministiic in nature too.  Not that I’m trying to get all political with my art or anything, it’s simply that I’m a dude, and for me, women are the most appealing thing artistically I can possibly put on my boomerangs.  The fact that I’m making all of these females “fierce, warrior types,” just goes to show where my mind is….that is to say, where it is, at the moment.  In another 6 months, everything I make may involve tigers or dragons, or Snoopy, who knows what?  Like anyone else, I have a wide range of ideas that rocket through my head, and these boomerangs are simply a snap shot of the thoughts I’m having RIGHT NOW……Stay tuned, as my mind changes often, just like the Michigan Weather!  Below, are what I’ve created in just the last week or so….Enjoy!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

JUST KEEPIN’ IT SURREAL…….

Posted: October 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

This past couple weeks have been very productive for me, mainly in the area of Art boomerang making.  I’ve had time and materIals on hand, plus, the most important ingredient for success when producing Artwork:  IMAGINATION.  I’ve recently strayed away from selling too many things on Ebay.  You see,  Ebay has this nasty little habit of taking 11% of both the selling price AND the shipping, and it’s really hard to bare that, when they actually do next to nothing to earn it.  Basically, Ebay sales occur ONLY due to its massive traffic, and that is ALL……I simply resent that 11% hit because I think it’s a bit on the high side.  You definitely won’t be seeing too many (if any) of my Art boomerangs for sale there….Ever.  The Art boomerangs in particular represent a considerable amount of work, and  to share the profits with a price-gouging third party is out of the question.

My routine for the last few weeks has been simple:  Do a few boomerangs for the production pages of my catalog each day, (found at BOOMERANGLOVER.COM), and, ,simultaneously, TRY to produce one decent Art boomerang per day.  I’m doing pretty good and performing both tasks now……  The new Art stuff is pictured below.

It’s late October, and things are a bit colder here in Ann Arbor now, mostly every day begins below freezing.  My production work is going to slow way down, but the Art production oughta pick up even more….Lots of time to do detailed work in my nice warm, cozy house, versus freezing my butt off at 20 degrees F in that shop!

My Art boomerangs almost always occur in clusters of 3 or more at a time.  It’s a function of available time to do them, plus being struck with an inspiration that won’t take no for an answer.  When both of those things happen, and if the planets align just right, the following pics show what can happen…..You can not stop the time…..Or the Art!
