Three Hundred And Forty-One! 

This was loosely based on a self-portrait I took weeks ago. I had wrapped up for the winter weather and loved the way my eyes looked peering through all the layers. As my mother pointed out, it has references topics which make people uneasy but I think/hope people can look past that. I tried to dive into the patterning and line work. There is something I really enjoy about the version which contains watercolor. It feels so different from anything I have done before. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Forty-Four!

So not my favorite image but its pretty bold. I was cleaning one day at the shop (Limerick Collision) and came across this great sticker for eye protection. The original image was way larger so I just cut this guys face off and started to draw around him. My contribution was minimal but it was still fun and without my contribution would just be a blue face with sun glasses. Anyway enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Thirty-Eight

Sometimes, if I see something that is inspiring I will just go ahead an paste it in my journal. This girls hair is fantastic and makes for a good base. This image is in the growing process and for whatever reason has started to incorporate woodland creatures. I’m pretty sure I’m still obsessed with the enchanted Forest we built at Halloween and our collection of woodland creatire cut outs. This can be confirmed from my work cubicle which still houses a skunk and deer silouette who receive glitter accessories from time to time. All I am saying is that my workspace is a good time considering I work in insurance. Enjoy!

Another day another page, I love thinking of this project like that. I never really know what I am going to do but I start layering elements and tossing color onto the page and whalla, I’ve got something to work with. The burst images were actually a pre-sketch for a print I did at one point while studying at Umass Boston. Enjoy and I’ll see you next time.

This was a continuation from the other day. I was attempting to finish/resolve the page but I still don’t know if I am done with it. I was SO busy at one point so I attempted to dull it down quite a bit in areas while making some brighter moments of focus. I do love the close up though, the colors and random  positioning seems new and fresh. Enjoy see you next time.

Alrighty another day another page, maybe your already catching onto that aspect of the last few posts but I’m loving this, Not only is it so much fun to rework past thoughts and ideas the blending of each page makes for an interesting Segway. Enjoy, lets turn the page.

This is not complete but it is what I did yesterday so I figured I would show where it currently stands, I definitely need to work on blending the written elements with the painted, drawn and collage bits! That will just have to be tonight’s project! My house is beginning to look like a hoarder lives here with drawings, journals, sketch books and art materials!

part number two, this image is a continuation from Two Hundred and Seven. Interesting to see how they develop image to image. Loving the contrast of the painted imagery and collage imagery. Also, the incorporation of words, or entries is really exciting and somewhat embarrassing!

These next few posts are all interrelated but I’ll explain show that eventually. Regardless this is a new project I started and seem to be thoroughly enjoying the making of. It is a bit of mix and matching elements and mediums and responding to what was laid down on the paper first. Enjoy!
