Talk about procrastinating... this blog was a graveyard for nearly a year. Well that it is no more, time for a resurrection! First off, I've been tinkering with the layout of this blog. As of right now it's more of a reflection of my portfolio site which is based on a minimalist format to allow the art to speak for it's self. Comments or pointers are more than welcome! The mindset of this blog will now be like an open tap on my creative process and incoherent ramblings of everything art and design. Oh yeah... and here are some quick sketches I did of some friends!
I did this piece for a friend that was about to embark on a new voyage to the concrete jungle. This was the first time I used scratchboard, and I believe I was successful in getting the style she had envisioned. I am probably going to explore this medium more and create line work similar to my printmaking.
I know it's been awhile. I've been working on a few new projects and trying to fix my scanner. A digital camera is only as good as it's light source. Just a quick sketchbook dump off, a few animals, a sketch of a obama esquire mag cover, tf2 spy, mad hatter, and a billy mays rip quick sketch. Michael Jackson sketch inevitable. Cheers!
Here's some quick snap shots of my current work in progress. It's my rendition of an Edward Hopper self portrait. His attention to geometrical design through light and shadow, and the ability to capture a common day in America are what I enjoy most about his paintings. The composition has been broken down into 5 different parts based on the brim of the hat. Each part will contain different color schemes of warm, cool, complementary, analogous, etc. Cheers!
