Activity

  • Painted inside a tower cupula dome above an oceanside private home in Chelem, Yucatan.
  •  Painted in my garden studio in Merida, Yucatan.  Title is the names of the fruits and flowers which grow there.  Hand crafted frame made of rustic reclaimed wood.
  •  This painting was originally made for an exhibit at CreArte Gallery in Minneapolis called "A Day in the Life". Each artist was asked to complete an artwork in a single day. This took me about 5 hours to complete.  From my ongoing Geo-Expressionist series - describing the biological foundations of life and consciousness on Earth.
  • James Grafsgaard updated the Artwork Campesino
     Painted in my garden studio in Merida, Yucatan. Based on my visits to the rural home of my Mayan friends, the family Keb Balaam.

These begin as scribbles on a page, elaborated with ink - led by my imagination and often laughing while I work. The results are a mix of humor and transgression. Sexy Senryu  - 75pages - softcover - published 2009 -. available from the artist.
  •  A graphic treatment of a short story written by my son James at age 20. The illustration was done by collaging Photoshop images found doing Google searches on the internet. Each panel may include elements appropriated from a dozen or more photos, layered with filter effects and sometimes even a wee bit of drawing! The complete story is 32 pages, available as a graphic novel published in summer 2009.. This project was also funded to be recreated as an animated video, by the Jerome Foundation FI…
