The Hopper Eleven Swinging its Tail

A one legged creature with one foot and three toes swinging it’s tail circling into oblivion.

The Hopper Eleven Specimen Swinging its Tail - 10" by 10"

These one legged creatures with three toes are common amongst my art. Found on flowers, on eyes and hoppers, a creature of my own creation they tie “it” together for me as an artist. A signature style of sorts.

I began *drawing Hoppers in Early 2004. Their upper body is always round, full of spirals encircling to the core of their being. Each circle represents an idea, a thought that we as individuals each experience every day we are alive on earth. A Hopper is memory. A Hopper is life.

A Hopper is usually happy. Eleven is ecstatic as he is full of many many dreams.

Happy Hopping!


Size – 10 by 10 inches or 25.4cm by 25.4cm
Mediums used – Pilot G-tec C4 pen on acid free Fabriano Sketchbook paper.

*I am still recovering from my move to WordPress.com. Much, let’s say 90% of my images are still missing from my blog. It’s going to take time to put it all back together again. You’ll notice past hoppers not even there… only the trail of words written.

  1. Interesting idea to tie a lot of your work together. Not sure if there is anything like that in my work… perhaps a noticeable style or approach to what I do.

  2. I think after 20 years of drawing or painting we artists begin to develop styles that perhaps go unnoticed by ourselves. I picked up on this only over the last couple of months as I seem to be drawing this tripod footed creature quite a bit lately.

    What it actually means who knows… but i like it. And that it is all that matters.
