Not an "art blog" I'm an artist and I happen to have a blog. All work under the this tag
Portfolio on Cargo Collective
Wildly approachable, hard working, and I talk a lot so drop me a line in my Ask Box or just stalk my page.
Open for commission and collaboration.
My (late) contribution to the lore that is 4/20. The piece is called “Faded.” More like a challenge met, I just enjoyed drawing it because unusual faces are my shiz, and in case you have not noticed, I’m obsessed with body mods. So viola, I’m thinking of just giving this one away. Now that I’m done it’ll just hang around my office desk taking up space.
This is the second of the two pieces i have done for this series and I feel like this is more of where I would like it to be. I like how little there is to combat with visually. I like that the colors in the face are bolder than everything else. I enjoy how long it takes me to do something that feels so simple. But with time becoming more of a problem than a plus, i have got to get to visualizing the last 7 of these pieces. This is going to be an interesting month.
I am sorry guys. I am apologizing because I took on the “30 Day Art Challenge” 42 days before a group show I am doing. So the work for the show is taking precedence over the challenge. Good news though, i am giving you guys looks at the work i am doing for the show. I am tackling a quick series of digital illustrations of beautifully hooded androgynous figures. Something out of dreams hence the series name. This is my first run, more like a feeling out illustration. I am not convinced by this one but being that it is my first attempt, i like the initial look. i am doing some new things with these pieces so bare with me.
In the meantime, I enjoy the love you guys. I mean my piece I did in collaboration with Feline has gotten so many notes, it’s beyond wonderful and I have no other option but to gush a little and just be grateful. That kind of love is what keeps me going, especially during times when I truly feel talentless. I love you guys, thank you.
30 Day Art Challenge // Day 2 Someone You Like (Celebrity)
I chose Denise because of who she was. She was fictional, but she was incredible. She was approachable, caring, aspiring, she dreamed big, and lived fairly by day. She was beautiful and she was smart, but she was flawed and made mistakes. I guess life is easier to learn from when your mother and father are Claire and Cliff. Regardless she is the barometer for the women I take to and this point in my life, I think I have got the right one.
This illustration can be seen accompanying an article in TAC Magazine issue 2. A 3 hour piece that I am kind of proud of. Did something with the lighting I don’t normally do. Ventured out of my comfort zone. The title is a play on the title to Trinidad James, All Gold Everything.
The first leg of my tribute illustration to one of the best shows on tv. Boardwalk Empire has graced HBO for a little while now and never ceases to hold my attention. With its attention to detail and story line that pulls from history, the show is nothing short of amazing. This may fall on deaf ears being that I haven’t seen much of a following for the program on tumblr, but from a fan of the series, you have to watch this show.
Being that a war is currently in the midst on the show, I wanted to showcase the players involved. Here you have it. All the big wigs jocking for a piece of the market, right now, is shown here in all his illustrative gory. This is just the hand drawn part of the project. I am looking to digitally give this piece some color and maybe even start a limit print run. If any one should so want a print, drop me a message or two. Would be great to connect with fans of the show, or of my work alike.
