Apologies for the lack of updates, been busy with many things. Including a new series which is TOTALLY different than anything I've done, so it will be interesting to see the finished product. The work will be shown Nov 8th and I'll be selling prints. Keep posted for deets! The series is called "Whiteness"
"Growth", 36"×24", colored pencil on cardboard. This was an experiment using cardboard because it's much cheaper than illustration board and the colors really pop if you keep some of the cardboard color. Covering the entire board I think mutes the colors overall. Well here it is!
On an unrelated related note, I take commissions! Want a portrait with trees coming out of your eyes, mushrooms, hands, regular ol eyeballs? Let's talk, send me a message!
This one started off too Lisa Frank so I added some truth to it. And now it's a bit sad. Oh reality. I don't know why I did the trees pink/red, halfway through I was like, "wait!? Why didn't I do these green?" Doesn't look terrible, but they really should be green. This one does have a lot of off white, french gray which really slowed me down. Evidently it's super boring to color in grays- it took me weeks! Measures 20'' x 30''
I think those bird are up to somethin. . .
Also, this is vaguely based off my drawing of New York last year:
Postcards and stickers came in!! Postcards are $2 each, stickers are four for $1. Discounts if you buy more than 5 :) I also have the chameleon in a postcard as well. Ah yes, the slow morph into LisaFrank. What's next, trapper keepers? O_o
Yeowza! It's been too long since my last post. Here's the latest drawing in my new place! I've moved to a magical neighborhood filled with flowers, trees, and birds. The edges got messed up so I just cut them off. It will look pretty cool matted on a different color or even white.
All finished! Yip! I'll have a piece at the Center for Contemporary Art, CoCA, on exhibit this Thursday, April 6th for the month. Part of their "Make America Create Again" show. Here's the event page, come stop by and say hello: www.facebook.com/events/1927771547452212/
And we will be at it at the Box House, be sure to stop by! We're going to be having virtual reality live painting :)
I did this little doodle on the left and got super excited, finally, a cathartic piece to release stress! Then I looked at the back and it has that fist piece I started. GOD.FUCKING.DAMNIT. Oh well. . . Below is a fun doodle with sharpies I did at work. Inspiration: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT1FFGY-oB8
Sassy sunset throwing shade at the clouds over Mt. hood but Rainer is as clear as ever! I like this piece the more I look at it and it has really lifted my spirits the past couple days. I didn't mean to make the face so sassy, the random, not-baby's breath, baby's breath with the blues gives this an underwater feel. Neat. CASCADIA!
