Ahhhhh Wondercon, it’s been 30 years in the waiting for me. I love art, but comic books are what really turned me onto the worlds made of pen, ink, and fantasy. I guess in a way you could say comic books were my "gateway drug" to fine art.
It’s been many years since I have been an avid comic book reader, probably 10 or more. Sure I pick up a graphic novel from time to time, but honestly folks, I’m totally out of the loop. Wondercon (held annually in San Francisco, CA) has EVERYTHING that your deviant heart may desire. This year was the 25th anniversary of the event, and the fanboy and fangirls came out in droves. In fact, the Saturday event date completely sold out and I’m told that the convention floor was an utter madhouse.

This guy was selling his photos — and his partners — on a side street. They had some wonderful stuff.
As a general rule, I was trying to pick up only ‘interpretive art’ on my trip — i.e. no postcards or photographs — but I was really drawn to one of his photos.
In the photo, a sax player leans against a graffitied wall — not too far from where I was standing. To me, from my brief and limited foray into Montreal and its cultural history, this photo was Montreal. Cultured, funky, but with a gritty undercurrent; a kind of unspoken groove.
Title: I think the baby’s eating up my inspiration (aka Auction Art #8)
Concept: Jan Leenders
Artist: Jitse Leenders
Acrylic on canvas, 18 x 12 cm (7.1 x 4.7 inch), 2009
As you might have heard, our daughter’s born. Fenne is her name. I suppose you understand painting hasn’t been the first thing on my mind lately. And now I’m ready to pick up my brushes again, I can’t seem to think of anything to paint. I think the baby’s eating up my inspiration. So I asked my son (2,5 years old) for a little help with this one. Ideas for new paintings are welcome. And sorry for the long silence.
This painting is a part of the Auction Art project.
