Big Blog

Wow, I haven't posted in a while and things are going very fast here....
A sampling:

Illustration for The Green Bird, Illustration Techniques. 8x10", scratchboard

Early stage of drawing for Drawing for Illustrators

Not done but mostly there.

Early stage of 3rd drawing for Drawing for Illustrators. The assignment is to do loose, unfocused markmaking (artist word! :D ) until an image starts appearing from our subconscious. Then we can start developing it.

...later on...


detail of bottom left corner

Pollockesque diptych of slouchy sad rabbit (left) and llama and bull's head (right). Not done. In the tradition of Ex Nihilo.

Experimenting with some new/old techniques. (Stuff I used to do a lot of updated with ideas from the internet).

More Fun Than Homework

I continued to productively procrastinate this afternoon by working on Retinue. It is coming along well and I have a spin-off piece using one of the figures.

Also doing some watercolor work in Illustration Techniques that I will post soon, maybe. Well, next week probably.




These things are starting to suggest other, bigger things to me.

Something From SCAD

I've been experimenting with the Scintique screens here at SCAD (you draw directly onto the screen using a stylus instead of using a mouse; it's just like using a pencil on paper (!!!!!)) and am digitally coloring this sketch/collage from my sketchbook.

Having some silly fun with lasers. :)

progress so far:

I need to redo the drawing on the pope/saint figure and figure out what drawing to do in the foreground.
(the main figure(s) are model Sean O'Pry, fyi)
