“Plastic Play Date” (2012)
Some newly designed cases and skins for iPhones, as well as laptops, iPads, etc.
Autopsy of “Wormy Love Children” (12” x 30” / 2011)
I did each face and its set of creatures on separate pieces of paper. They were combined on the computer after they were inked and cleaned up.
This is one of the first pieces without stippling that I did in a long time. The worms are reoccurring in my stuff lately, as I am using them in an animation project that I’m currently developing (and need to keep sharp on drawing them).
Autopsy of “Mr. Hands” (8”x30” / 2011)
This was a rotation study of my brother’s hand. He has all of his fingers, but for the purpose of what I wanted to try, I gave it a nice clean cut.
Since it was a sequence, I also went with a rainbow pallet.
Common question is “Why is the 6th hand is missing?” A very common question, indeed.
Autopsy of “Lovely Couple” (12”x18” / 2010)
I like drawing clothes and fashion and messing with color options. The male’s face is based loosely on an angry cat. The woman’s dress was a mix of two or three fancy styles I had pictures of.
The pink tie is based on a skinny tie I bought the day I began coloring this piece. It’s pretty much the same shade. If anyone comes across a violet vest like this and wants to make life imitate art, send it my way.
The pencil and ink was done on a sheet of feature film/large format animation paper before it was scanned and colored.
Lastly, “Lovely Couple” was made available as a print (giclee on stretched canvas) for a couple of gallery shows. If anyone wants to buy it, or make a fancy trade for something rad, let’s.
Autopsy of “Rainbow Wars” (20”x40” / 2011)
Part 2 of 2
Here the initial colors are laid down to start working up from.
One thing I dislike about much of the digital mediums used for film, painting, etc is that they offer too many choices. It is easy to loose an idea when you have endless options for revision. I do not allow myself to re-paint stuff in digital. If I lay down a color, I then only let myself build up from there by layering. I apply semitransparent shades of the additional color until I find something I like, the way you would with physical paint.
