Amanda and Stacey. I had to take a break from the painting I was working on and draw them since they were matching outfits and working on their matching laptops at a coffee shop on a Saturday afternoon in Ocean Beach, San Diego.
Passing through time drawing patterns all over this little notebook my friend gave me while riding in the car through Chile & Argentina. Lichen green is my great friend!
Wake up and smell the zines! I’ve now got the physical copies of We the Sea, a little book/zine I made in collaboration with PangeaSeed so you can buy one from me on my website! Learn more & get it here: http://celestebyers.com/We-the-Sea
The men from our Patagonia motorcycle trip. My dad, Jim, Rod, Pablo, Doug, Frank, and Jeff. I drew these guys one night at dinner in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park and started painting the sky when the generator went out so finished by the light of my dad’s iPhone. The moon had a giant glowing rainbow ring around it that night and semi hidden here is this cat with different colored eyes I met in Tierra del Fuego.
My dad just took me on this motorcycle trip through Patagonia, from Central Chile, back and forth through Argentina to the bottom and Southernmost city in South America, Ushuaia in Tierra Del Fuego. I rode in the chase vehicle most of the time, writing, trying to draw, & watching the epic scenery go by. Bumpy green mountain zigzags were made by holding the pen and let it bounce around on this dirt road and within the landscape are a lot of drawings of my dad sleeping. Watch out! If you’re sleeping around me, I will probably draw you. Or paint on you. More to come!
Painted this guy from a book on Native Americans the other night, sitting by the fire in Torres del Paine, Chile. I’d been hanging out with hunters and was contemplating the idea of killing animals for survival so thought this guy embodied that and the strength of a human living within and from their environment.
