Come meet another of our wonderful writers in our newest Meet the Author Segment! http://underthegumtree.com/2014/07/meet-the-author-chelsea-schott/

Meet the Artist Q&A


Under the Gum Tree: What do you enjoy most about art and its creative process?
Geoffrey Todd Smith: I like being surprised. Sometimes I’ll get completely lost in the middle of a painting and have to respond to a bunch of confused decisions. Just when I am about to give up, I’ll have a moment of clarity. Some of my favorite paintings come from that struggle.

Geoffrey Todd Smith’s work is featured throughout our entire summer issue. His piece on the left is called Astral Guide 2013, enamel, gouache and ink on panel, 20”x16”
His piece on the right: Sex Axe 2013 enamel, gouache and ink on panel, 24”x18”

Meet the Artist Q: Do you have a set schedule for when you work?
@geoffreytoddsmith: I try to work most days. I’m mostly a 9-5 worker. I focus better when I treat it like a job.

"Halloween was the night of all nights in our neighbourhood. It was the one night when, in an era before poisoned fruit and razor blades, we were allowed to run unfettered. It was our unfounded hope that Mrs. Harris would come to the door bearing birdies and basketballs and not simply the stale, loose cup of popcorn she was known to dump, unceremoniously, into our baskets."
- From Lucy Black’s story “Mrs. Harris”
