An Update on Whispering Eagle Studio Website

I’ll Be Posting Here Until My Site is Up and Running

I’ve been asked by many of my followers where Whispering Eagle Studio went. It hasn’t gone anywhere; it’s currently being redesigned. The problem is, that being a web designer / developer / graphic designer, my own site takes a backseat to those projects. I’m working on it when I can sneak in a few moments. I can’t say when it will be back up and running, but when it’s finally live again, look for some great changes. In the works are updated tutorials, new tutorials, new carvings (of course), and a couple of other surprises.

In the meantime, I’ll post the occasional tutorial here – carving, painting, color theory – until Whispering Eagle Studio is back up. This site will continue to be where I chronicle my (mis)adventures, thought processes while making my art, and will also be the place where I’ll present my other artworks. Whispering Eagle Studio will be dedicated solely my bird carvings.

I sincerely hope you would honor me by following both sites.

MUSKRAT!

They Look Like Cute Rodents, But They are Secret Carnivores

MUSKRAT!

Aww…don’t muskrats look all cute and cuddly? There was even a song written about it, “Muskrat Love”, (for you people born after the 70s, here’s a link):

You’re welcome for the earworm.

This little ode to the loveability of muskrats was performed by The Captain & Tennille, who were probably fed magic mushrooms by muskrats and then “inspired” to sing the thing, or lose body parts. The threat probably wasn’t needed, because magic mushrooms, and just LOOK at that darling face! Hell, they even added cute muskrat chatter. Shows you what they know about muskrats. They will eat you, and line their den with your bones.

Neti Pot?

I Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Neti Pot

Neti Pot?

It’s my allergy season now –  lasting until roughly the first snowfall. Everything is beginning to awaken; the birds are singing, and the flowers  and trees are doing the flora equivalent of cluster bombing.  Right now, my nose could water a small yard. The cottonwood trees are the worst, sending aloft little fuzzballs that happily drift in the soft breeze, and taking root wherever that breeze happens to drop them.

Or in whichever nostril sucks one in.

The Creative Cluster Bomb™

And What I’m Gonna Do About It

The Creative Cluster Bomb™

Reading art and design magazines on a bitterly cold November day in front of a hot, popping fire (I love the sound, so I always try to get some logs with lots of sap), is both a fantastic idea, and a not-so-good idea. The fact that I even want to crack these magazines open in the first place is a huge step forward in the Journey back to making stuff. I see what I’ve been missing, but I also see what I can be doing.

I’m not sure exactly at what point I was knocked sideways out my sedate state of mind onto my psychological ass, but I can tell you that the rush of images, ideas – and the restlessness that came with them – will be known now and forever as The Creative Cluster Bomb™.
