Ramblings

Play Your Cards Right.

I sketched out the face cards used for playing cards. I'd like to get them made into a full deck.

Started coloring in the King. I'll flip the image on the actual playing cards.

Sketch & Color

Lately I've been doing a few drawings and messing with them in Adobes series of apps on my phone.  

Here’s a guy I drew up and knocked around and then colored in Adobe Sketch.

Hallway Pass, Homeroom, Common Knowledge

I’ve been thinking about this for awhile and I’m still trying to settle on things a bit, but I’m looking to do a few shirts focused on school and learning. I think I’ve settled on the name, which would be Common Knowledge. I initially came up with the name Hallway Pass and then Homeroom but Common Knowledge sounds good to me. I’ve listed out a few things so we’ll see. The image below will probably be the first run of things.

Lately I’ve been working on some 8x10 pieces, these are acrylic on canvas panel. I’ll be doing a few of more of these. Below you’ll find the sketches and starting points.

Carving Out

I recently picked up a small Speedball Linoleum kit to mess around with some printmaking and to make a small card for a friend. I totally forgot to carve everything out in reverse though. I think I may use the photograph of it instead though. 

The phrase would read "I love you almost as much as I love myself,"

Ink and Paper

Began work on a few collages. They are all on 5x7 canvas panels which I will probably combine with some older work I’ve done.

Barking!

Finished a few of these up a few days ago. These are a few pets for a friend of mine. I still have a couple more to do though. The two below went off in the mail last week and I hope their new owner enjoys them.

The pets I’ve been doing have changed up a bit. I’m wanting to capture someone’s pet and keep it fun and light - when I started doing these they were more based around simple shapes but I’ve enjoyed pushing them further and playing with texture lately too.

Spotlight on the Arts - Fairfax VA

Spent Saturday May 12th painting with a few people out in Fairfax, VA. It was a really nice day in Old Town Square. The event started at 10 am and I think I got there maybe around 10:30 or slightly earlier. I wanted to work on a character portrait so I got started. Progression photos along with the final are below.

 

I want to play with the idea of masks more. Character drawings that are wearing masks - though I'm not entirely sure what that should look like but I've been messing with a few things.

There's a really neat site called Masks of the World check it out and browse over the different masks from different countries. It's pretty neat! 

Many thanks to Matthew (WhoArtwork), City of Fairfax, and Plaza Artist Supply.
