All ten doctors from the series Doctor Who!
Yet more caricatures!!
I'm work on a series of paintings! I'm still in the early stages, but here are a few of my sketches and a miniature proof of concept painting:
Many thanks to RichardG who did the uber-detailed patterning on the dragon!
Hey, want an uber-cute caricature?
So, I've spent a long time developing a style of drawing that I think is punchy and interesting. I like it a a lot because I think it's very 'me'. But there's one problem with it. It doesn't color well. The only pieces that can survive being colored are ones with very large areas of flat black, but my focus is generally more on crazy linework. Coloring makes it more readable and accessible but also a bit bland.
Take a look at the pictures below. Does it work better in with or without color? Maybe I should use a different coloring style? Help!
I've gone to the Bainbridge Island street fair every year since I was about seven and I always spend the whole time doing chalk drawings on the same bit of sidewalk. I found out this year that someone has been watching me! wooooohhh...
She's a very nice woman who apparently sometimes hires chalk artists for parties and she offered me a job! Unfortunately the job would have been this weekend and I'm not going to be in town but I gave her my contact info so hopefully something will come of it. Anyway, here's some photos of me and family/friends playing with the chalk. And in the chalk. And I'm sure some of it is even now frolicking in our lungs.
New picture! It's a steam-punk portrait I did for a friend. He and I are currently collaborating on his website. Here's a screenshot of what it's going to look like:
Based off of this charcoal sketch:
In any case, I think I should continue to do concept art type work for a while because that sounds like a really fun direction to go in.
This image is one of the pieces I did for my BFA show at Cornish. My thesis was about taking a skeptical look at common beliefs in todays world. Hopefully I'll find the time to scan the others sometime soon. They're big so it's going to be a pain.
