It all started with some modeling practice. Cowboy modeling practice to be exact partner. I wanted to incorporate this image in my 5.5″X8.5″ sketchbook. So I used grid method to piece together this puzzle. Altered the image to better accommodate my sketchbook and added lines using Photoshop. Aside from the eyes looking like demon eyes I think the grid method was a success.
Welcome to a new year folks! 2018 promises so many good and bad things! Looking forward to every moment. Woo! Sorry for the lack of keeping in touch. Between switching positions at work, moving, birthdays and vacations. I still kept up with drawing:
15 minute breaks at work, over thoughtfulness and the inability to sit still are the results of the above drawings. Some of these were fun to think about:
Drawing on napkins, scratch paper and sometimes toilet paper were the materials used at work. Don’t get me wrong. I work my butt off at work, which is why I have this need to draw when I’m on my breaks. To escape. To recharge. To win. Doing this has kept me insane, which is what I prefer. Recently I have been getting more in depth with some drawings:
Staying on course. Adding a new little fun in each piece. Dogs that like saying “dawg”. Horses that chew bubblegum. Blue eyes like the sky. Bear harness for when they fall out of trees.
Thanks for your patience with my long break. 2018 here we come! 😀
This month 4 people and 2 animal portraits were made. Totaling out to be 7 people and 3 animals. I will continue to make portraits probably forever. Who knows you might be next!?! People make this world a less lonely place. Same goes for animals. Why not try and connect as much as possible? Make one big giant net. Thanks for the inspiration!
As April approaches my work will be shifting around from painting to drawing to mixed media to different dreamscapes. It’s something Salvador Dali was able to accomplish very well in creating these dreamlike pieces. I have quite a few detailed dreams I’d like to share. “Dreaming in April” will be next months title.
This month I will be adding animals into the mix. Animals from all shapes and sizes play a part in this mass collaboration. They provide a side to people that reveal different emotions. Below are some portrait studies:
Thanks again for being my inspiration!
February Face Off grows near the end. Here are some more portraits:
I may have to think of another name once March begins. March Madness? Monochromatic March? March On? March is certainly going to be full of mixtures. Thanks for your inspiration!
