Sofa Pillow Revisited

From four years ago, a little Sofa Pillow illustration that was part of the original Drawing Flies 52 project I did with Jeff Kennedy. Seemed an appropriate time to revisit it. Still one of the favorites from that year’s series. If I recall, Marshall over at MidCurrent.com has this one in his collection.

Christmas Spey (2010)

A little look back at a holiday fly from another time. “Christmas Spey” from the 2010 DF52 project.

DF52 (2010) – Week 39 Re-Post

I know that I’m late with last weekend’s DF&F 52 image. I will get it done, hopefully before week 40 is here. In the meantime, here is a re-post of the DF52 (2010) week 39 project. This one meant a lot to both Kelley and me and the rock sits on our fireplace mantel. ********** […]

The DF52 2010 Collection

I was looking for an image to fill a spot in the upcoming Long Flies book, so I fired up Photoshop’s built-in file viewer and started digging. As I navigated past the old DF52 2010 folder, I suddenly realized that I could see all the flies from the year at once. I liked the collage […]

DF52 (2010) – Christmas Spey

Merry Christmas Eve from FF&W. “Christmas Spey” from last year’s DF52 project.

DF52 (2010) – Week 50

The Drawing Flies 52 image from last year at this time: Winter’s Hope. This was one of my favorite fly drawings of the 2010 project. The full post is here.

DF52 (2010) – Week 41

Yeah, I know, DF52 week 41 is not in order (this is week 48), but I was thinking about big, late-season streamers, and had to re-post this. This Yellowstone Sculpin is vying to be my favorite from last year, and it is for sure in my top-five. I did one commission based on this painting, […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 47

This Blue-Butt Caddis was last year’s week 47 image from the DF(flies) 52 project. It was chosen in memory of the late Tom Helgeson. Check out the full post for more about the fly and Tom. This year’s week 47 image will be a marble trout (due tomorrow, but with the holiday and all, it […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 40

This week’s DF52 fish image (spotted gar) turned out to be a last-second type of drawing. Too many fits and starts to be able to properly dig into the details and the play of light. Last year’s week 40 DF52 drawing, however, was just the opposite. The Wickham’s Fancy had a good start and ended […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 39

This week’s DF52 fish is going to be something a little different (stay tuned). In the meantime, above is the week 39 image from last year’s DF52 flies-only project: the Bunyan Bug. Drawn on a rock, with a rock, both of which came from the center of A River Runs Through It territory. You can […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 35

This week’s DF52 fish is going to be a silver (coho) salmon. Keep watching for that. In the meantime, above is the week 35 image from last year’s DF52 project (2010 was flies only): the Crazy Charlie. You can read the original post here.

DF52 (2010) – Week 33

For those following the weekly Drawing Fish 52 (DF52) project this year, here’s a look back at what was happening last year at this same time. The DF52 project in 2010 was Drawing Flies, and the fly from week 33 (corresponding with the Dolly Varden this year) was a Sakasa Kebari (for Tenkara fishing). The […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 31

For those following the weekly Drawing Fish 52 (DF52) project this year, here’s a look back at what was happening last year at this same time. The DF52 project in 2010 was Drawing Flies, and the fly from week 31 (corresponding with the chum salmon this year) was a Brassie. The fly is shown above. […]

DF52 (2010) – Week 29

For those following the weekly Drawing Fish 52 (DF52) project this year, I thought that I’d do a little look back this week at what was happening last year at this same time. The DF52 project in 2010 was Drawing Flies, and the fly from week 29 (corresponding with the muskellunge this year) was a […]
