FINALLY FINISHED: illustrator blend tool jelly blobz logo – a vehicle wrap which was an unexpectedly long-term project. With many meetings, legal paperwork, and expensive materials. First one i’ve ever done. my client freakin’ loved this one – like buying-me-expensive-thank-you-gift loved. it’s cool when things designy things work out.

The logo has already populated all over google too.

dress study in ink marker and spraypaint

besides cropping, the phone numbers i had to hide below and the vector nectar watermark, this is untouched post scan-wise. The paper is probably 40 year old 20# legal paper that an old friend gave me years ago. drawn from life, vintage dress on ancient dress form. tryin a get back in the swing after a very rough couple weeks there. bear with me pretty please? thank you kindly for looking.

Somehow i have to get a few of these books. For now i will spare you most of the piss poor hands i studied from the volume JUST devoted to hands. I’m tryin to loosen up and draw in graphite again. Finding that i want to treat it like ink sorta. Not the right way to look at it.

Graphite is grey, after all.

And here’s a costume ref concept from a fun project i’m crankin on right nowz – inked on the crappiest, bleediest paper you can imagine. woot only 98 more pages of it to use. :-/
Technically, the extra arms shouldn’t be … posed … but at this point i cant resist the chance to emote more hands.

Haven’t posted much here since mid december – trying to get the kinks worked out of my domino stack of social media updates to make life easier. Lots more to show very soon!

Somewhere online I stumbled upon this terrifying and beautiful vision of the inside of a sea turtle’s mouth. Terrifying. Beautiful tonal and warm and cool shifts. Immediately i knew it was an image which i’d make a study to record. So much subtlety and ferocity.

There’s a drawing group i’ve been going to on thursday nights. Really good energy and cool people. Good getting out of the studio a little bit. Did the lion’s share of this one, from sketch to underpainting (on 9×11 watercolor paper) at the meeting. woke up the next morning cuddled up with gouaches, casein, and ink to finish it up.
