Keep Cool 2013…

mmC1

I have been meaning to post this one a few weeks ago, but the family and I made the move down to Maryland from NYC, so with packing and moving two kids, there was quite a bit to get done. Well, we are here now, in Maryland settling in nicely, making the switch from city rats to ‘burbanites .

4 Way Calling…

PhoneSs2

While taking a slight break from my work, to watch the kids full time, while my wife is out of town for a week on business, I played around with some of my older works. I had done enough works with girls and phones (generic looking iPhones mostly), and the four panel structure has been friendly to me lately. So while I had a moment between naps, which was hard to come by with a 4 year-old and a 7 month old, but was able to make this 4 way long distance call!

Breaking up to make up… Love in shades of Black an White…

Elephant Board…

I couldn’t help myself to do another skateboard. I really enjoyed working on the tiger board, it was a nice switch from canvas and paper. Since I sketched out so many, and I enjoyed the process of working on the board, I bought another one and at first I was going to go with a giraffe sketch I had done, but in the end more people actually wanted to see the elephant. This is actually my second go at the board, the first hit you can actually see on my facebook page. Since the elephant takes up a large part of the board, that much grey would dull the entire board. So the elephant gets color, it will still have shades of grey but with color, maybe like a bluish-grey. I might take one more past at this and then it should be finished.

Studio Working

I know it has been way too long since I posted anything. I have been working on a lot of new stuff, and have put my Nutcracker 2087 project to the side for a while. This is some of what I have been doing in the mean time, do not worry I have started working on it slowly recently and will post something very soon! What you see here is a five foot by four foot piece of canvas, pinned to the wall ready to be drawn on and painted. This came with an idea from my studio partner, to take these drawing I had, most of which are only about 8×10 inches, combine them on this huge canvas. The first canvas was to be 8×4 feet, somewhat overwhelming, not to say that five by four feet isn’t overwhelming, but it was easier to handle. I didn’t have a real sketch, what I did was, have all the drawings I had done with this same kind of style and feel around me as reference, I of course sketched out loosely on the canvas with my Ebony pencil and when I was satisfied with enough of a sketch I started with my thick brush pen. It took about two ten hour days to complete the drawing, it was a lot of fun! It’s being painted by my studio mate, and we have clashed already but I am happy with the direction it is going. This is the first of many we will collaborate on.
