The Buddha is back from a nice trip to SoCal refreshed and ready for 2011. I can't wait to jump in to 2011. Looking ahead at a new calendar must take on different meaning for Jeff Kennedy. Jeff wowed us with his 365 Drawing Flies blog in 2008 and a variety of wonderful projects since then (including a lovely hard cover book of his work). In 2010 Jeff brought us the DF52 project. In this effort Jeff drew flies on a weekly basis while at the same time Jason Borger drew an interpretation of the same fly. Twice the wonderful art work for the fly fishing junkie. Set aside some time when you decide to start searching these two sites - it is easy to get sucked in!
For 2011 Jeff and Jason have undertaken another DF52 project and this time they will focus on drawings of fish. If the first two weeks are any indication this is going to be another great project. One of my favorite aspects of these projects has been the willingness of Jeff and Jason to sell originals and prints of their work. I'm thrilled to have a few signed prints from Jeff and a copy of is 365 book.
Check out this project - it will give you something to look forward to every week. Who doesn't need that?
Tight Lines Amigos!
