A collaboration with the awesome kentonblogs! :3
If any of you aren’t following Erica on Tumblr already, you should get on it. I made this tortoise and hare for a poster project back in school and had been thinking about animating them. Erica is a master of crackly scratch-on-film effects, so we combined forces.
Stakeout, 2014. 9 Sketchbook pages, 9x12” each.
I have completed my first Art Assignment. If you don’t know what The Art Assignment is, check it out on YouTube and Tumblr. The current assignment, from artist Deb Sokolow, is to leave an object somewhere, wait for someone to pick it up, and document the experience. The nine pages of paranoid notes, scribbled drawings and haphazard snapshots I ended up with aren’t the kind of thing I usually post here, but I really enjoyed my stakeout.
Fire and Water, 2014. Acrylic on hardboard, 20x16”.
I’m working on another piece involving a crocodile and decided to explore their scaly wonders further for this month’s theme. Crocodiles, like dragons—which they likely inspired—are associated with several opposite properties: fire and water, death and fertility, strength and weakness. In my research I learned little birds do not eat little bits of food out of crocodiles’ teeth (crocodiles would totally eat them if they tried) and four species of crocodile have been documented climbing trees.
My piece from QDC. Prints and stuff are available over here.
What I’m Working on, February 2014:
1. An artwork I’m making as my way of mourning the loss of Sushi World, Dallas’ 24-hour sushi bar.
2. A set of retro Sci-Fi themed valentines
3. Personal, weekly drawings relating to spirituality. I’ve been making these for several months now, but I’m working on putting them online somewhere quietly.
4. Comics. This one is real dumb, but it may see the light of day when the time comes.
