Fluttershy Watercolor

Fluttershy is not the first pony I’ve painted. She won’t be the last. Prints of this lovely pegasus can be found in my Etsy shop.

Seven Devils

The Atlantic City Ballet‘s newest show opens next Friday. Caught Up in Swing/7 Sins is breathtaking. I do not have the vocabulary to properly describe the skill of these dancers and the caliber of their choreography. The show features contemporary music like Florence and The Machine and Nine Inch Nails. Everyone in southern New Jersey and Philadelphia should be buying a ticket.

Watercolors from their rehearsals:

Ballet Rehearsal

This morning I had the privilege of painting the Atlantic City Ballet as they rehearsed. The company’s beauty absolutely stunned me. Their skill, dedication, elegance, and joy truly moved me. It is my deep hope to work with them again.

As this was a rehearsal, I worked as they danced. These sketches are fast, wet, and unrefined.

Lies and Good Intentions

I got bored with the seven deadly sins thing. So yeah, that series is over now. Here are a couple hares and my condolences.

NSFW

NSFW means “not safe for work”. It is often used as a way to label images of naked people. I agree that nudes are not safe work. In fact, looking at anything that isn’t related to work while at work is not safe to be doing when your boss walks in. Even Hello Kitty is not safe for work. I do not agree with the fact that more art shows, galleries, and websites are refusing to exhibit depictions of nudes. The contemporary art world is becoming more conservative than the Catholic church. They’ve had public displays of nudes for hundreds of years.

The following images are NSFW, but they are safe for home, teenagers, and any toddlers you may have looking over your shoulder. You know why? Because they are art. Stop being such a fuddy duddy.

Skinny People

I struggle with drawing people who are clinically underweight. It seems no matter who I draw, they end up smaller than in real life. If said person starts small, they end up absurdly tiny. This is something I need to work on. All people are beautiful, and I should be able to portray them accurately.

The Camera Adds Ten Pounds. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Unframed: $225.00

Freshly Painted

Sometimes, when I can’t sleep, I just lie in bed and worry about silly things that never seem to matter much in the morning. Other times, when I can’t sleep, I get out of bed and paint instead.

Midnight Issues. Watercolor, ink, salt, and worries on paper. 6″ x 5.5″.

Unframed: $200.00

D’Arcy D’Lux

This month’s Dr. Sketchy’s Philly session was exceptionally fun. The model, D’Arcy D’Lux, really knew how to put on a show.

Sketchbook Splash

It’s Sketchbook Saturday and, as you can see, my sketchbook has gained a lot more color lately.

The following was doodled while watching Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn.
