Farewell Blogger. Hello New Website!

Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog over the past two and a half years. I've decided to merge my poorly-neglected portfolio site and this semi-updated blog into one website. Hopefully the result will be a happy new place you guys will enjoy spending some time at!

DuttonArt - Words and Pictures

Subscribers! - You'll continue to receive new updates from the new feed address (you may just need to click the refresh button within your reader). If you'd like, you can update your feed readers by clicking here.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been working toward a new goal, which may or may not fly with everyone; art and literary journalism. I always cringe when I hear about a celebrity of some sort announcing a bold new direction. Like the dude from N'Sync taking up writing, or Joaquin Phoenix taking up music. I'm sure they can do it, but I tend to be skeptical, so I feel embarrassed for them ahead of time. Luckily, I'm not a celebrity. I'm also keen on embarrassing myself. So I have some room to be flexible. I'm also no Steinbeck, but I hope you guys will humor me anyway.

Of course, you'll notice a lot of familiar material, presented in a much more accessible format. A lot of my sketchjournal images throughout this blog have been catalogued by book, year, or travels in the gallery section. And of course, you can always revisit the one hundred seventeen posts I've left behind.

Thanks again, and see you at the new site!

omg how weird! all of my family lives in georgia, south carolina, and mostly tennessee. i love your work, and im not gonna lie, it's weird seeing "dutton" and it not referring to myself, haha the only other time i've even seen anything with the same name was at a book store; there is a publishing company that is called dutton publishing. hah
