Playing Catch Up

I’ve been in the wonderful habit of painting more than posting. Here’s a watercolor from a few weeks ago. My reference can be found in this /r/redditgetsdrawn thread.

2014

I’ve been painting a lot this year.

Here’s a friend’s baby. She was born December 31st, 2012. She has my grandmother’s name.

My scanner does not do this piece justice.

Nothing Serious

Like most creative people, sometimes I struggle with artist’s block. Group assignments are a great way to fight this not so serious ailment. The following works took no longer than forty five minutes to create. They are in response to specific themes assigned daily by Reddit’s Sketch Daily Club.

Painting of my favorite word: Sparrow

Drawing of my favorite villain: Samara

They aren’t masterpieces, just fun little exercises. Sometimes, it’s nice to make art without serious intentions.

 

 

First Person Shooter

The Etsy Gamers’ game of the month this May is Bioshock. They seem to be on a first person shooter kick, which is OK by me. The following ACEO is of a Little Sister and  Big Daddy. It is hard not to think of the under water city Rapture as a horrific steam punk version of Oz. I had fun playing with the art deco arches of the game.  This Big Daddy’s name is Toto.


Not in Kansas Anymore. Ink, watercolor, and paper. 2.5″x3.5″ (6.4cmx8.9cm).

SOLD

Prints Available.

Three ACEO’s One Post

More pretty girl ACEO’s. Why? Because, honestly, they sell the best. And I like doing them. Reminds me of my animation days.

All three the size of playing cards, signed & dated on back. Fifteen dollars each. On sale in my Etsy shop.

Naked Girl

The model in this piece refused to pose nude because she had found out she was pregnant earlier in the day. I respect her choice. However, if posing nude is something motherhood changed, perhaps she should never had become a model to begin with.

As artists, we trust our models are not ashamed to be nude in front of us. That is why use the word “nude” and not “naked.” Naked implies a vulnerability. This was a person I had drawn without clothes many times before. Knowing her preganancy made her stop modeling made me feel as if I had not being drawing a nude woman in the past, but a naked girl. I felt betrayed, in a way. This piece properly reflects our mutual guilt.

Back From the Dead,

it is sketchbook Saturday! This is an older sketch of a patchwork zombie playing with a pair of yo-yo’s. At that point muscle memory is all you got, you know?

Not So Sketchy

This, like so many sad Saturdays before it, is not a Sketchbook Saturday. Maybe next week I’ll snap a shot from my brimming book of doodles for your viewing pleasure. For now, settle for this:

This ACEO sold the day I posted it. That felt nice.

I have so much to show you!

I haven’t been posting, but I have been creating. Get ready for an action packed week of new art. This drawing is from Dr. Sketchy’s. I’ll go more into that tomorrow. The model’s name is “Cherry Bomb.”
