Process

I want to share a piece I painted almost a year ago and never got around to doing anything with. I rarely work in a larger format. Most of my art is done on bristol or watercolor paper no larger than 11×17 (for scanning purposes mostly). I wanted to try something a bit different and purchased a few 2ft x 2ft wood boards to paint on.

Tiger Process

Starting with a few pencil sketches and eventually a final sketch I used a projector to trace my original sketch onto the board.

Then the painting begins.

Ghost Children

Illustration I did for Ghost Children, a short story by D. Winston Brown. For me, the story was about change. From a child to a man, or maybe not even having the time to be a child but losing that innocence and becoming a man at an early age.

As for the illustration. Well, it’s another experiment for me. Experimenting with different mediums (acrylic, ink, computer coloring, textures).

Progress Shots

Progress shots of a mural I’m working on for the lobby of Downpour Studios. I wanted to chose a subject to illustrate and was having a hard time picking. I ended up choosing “farmers.” Might sound a bit random but it’s not. While true farming is fading there are still farms near my house and I actually was baby sat by a woman who owned a farm. I’ve always had a lot of respect for farmers because their lifestyle is HARD. I sit at a computer most of the day or paint all day. These people get up early, go to bed late and work manually for most of it. I wanted a reminder to always work hard and work towards a goal that means something. I feel like that is exactly what a farmer is.
