One of my resolutions is to be a more consistent blogger, meaning I’ll need to update at least a couple times a week if not everyday. We’ll see where that goes. 😉
Jeff Kennedy from the Drawing flies 365 blog, and Jason Borger from Fish, Flies and Water [blog] are going head to head in a weekly exhibition of fly art. It’s interesting to note how each artist interprets the pattern. Jeff has a more classic take on the Mickey Finn while Jason presents a more progressive pattern, taking advantage of body tubing.
Here are the 2 results from week one. This should pan out to be a great project and I’m looking forward to seeing all the results.
For those of you who followed Jeff Kennedy’s Drawing Flies 365 project in 2008, this will be a must have for your library. There is a 15 page preview available, click here to check it out.
This 154 page book takes you on a visual journey as I draw/paint 365 fishing flies every day for a year. I decided to self publish this book through Blurb, who is a print on demand publisher. The book quality is superb. I am offering the book in two versions, soft cover or hard cover with a dust jacket.

A new blog has emerged onto the Internets. Thanks to Flyangler over at http://flyfishcalgary.com for pointing me towards this new gem. Jeff Kennedy is a talented artist and in my favourite subject to boot. Don’t you think this blue Fire Fly would make a great tattoo? One of the nice aspects of Jeff’s work is his ability in a range of mediums from digital to watercolors. Jeff, you also need to get working on your other site http://www.fishingbabe.com/ 🙂 .
