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.
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.
Coltrane, 2014. Ink, collage and digital color.
My first QDC post of the year is a portrait of John Coltrane for our group’s contribution to Jazz and Draw. If you aren’t familiar with Coltrane’s legendary work as a saxophonist and band leader, Coltrane Plays the Blues is a great place to start.
Coltrane was a great musical figure to explore in this piece. I’m looking forward to seeing the other portraits from the rest of the QDC.
