I started in on this lady last month, but I think I’ll backtrack a bit and copy some of the earlier plates. The shading is pretty complex for me, so I’m going to put the training wheels back on for awhile.
These two ways aren’t dramatically different, but…
This is my current Bargue plate in progress. I’m learning how to shade properly, which I used to think I was pretty good at.
The beauty (and burden) of art is that it’s subjective. Whether or not art is “good” depends entirely on the person viewing it. This allows for a wide range of styles and techniques to have a place in the art world, for better or worse.
This weekend, at a Wu Tang Clan concert in Austin TX, I found myself in the middle of a mosh pit. I had never had the pleasure of moshing before, and was a bit unprepared. Considering that you too might like to enjoy the mosh experience, I developed this handy guide.
I think I’m starting to remember how to draw. I hadn’t really drawn anything in years when I decided I wanted to get back to it.
Once in awhile, I do a public facing website (as opposed to the internal projects I do at work). This is the most recent such project I did for Jas Knight.
I created this collage in 2006, before working with John Abner, who has given me a lot of guidance on how to do so properly. No advanced planning went into this piece in terms of layout, colors, sizes, shapes, guiding the viewers eye, etc, but I still relate strongly to my inspiration.
One of my first oil paintings from 2008. The process of painting for this piece was similar to stream of consciousness writing, where the painting comes together without a lot of intellectual interference from the artist.
