This is a mixed media sketchbook page from last year, mainly with acrylic and scrap paper. It still needs some work, but this is where it stands after some photoshop polishing.

Relief Prints

July.9.2009

All of these were done during my printmaking class, in editions of five (with extras made in some cases.) Most of these are available for sale.

intaglio print from copperplate etching, 8″x10″. I also did a few with spot watercolor, and one with silver-foil in the triangles. When I get around to it, I’ll update with an example.

Linoblock print on handmade paper, 14″x14″.

Collograph print, 10″x14″ (this edition was done in various colors and without color, this is just the only one I have scanned.)

Watercolor monoprint, 5″x7″. I did 4 other masks in a similar style, this turned out to be my favorite.

Oil monoprint, 9″x7″. This was also printed with different color combos, different duck placements, etc. I think the cloud and water made this one stand out.

Illustration. 3:25.pm

After more than one photo shooting attempting, many de-cat hair dustings, and using nearly every light stand I have…the final is here!

It is all paper and a lot of careful gluing, with acrylic on the board and mica pigments (“glitter”) on the black wall. Some gouache was used on the guys skin because I don’t have the right paper color, so I made my own. The floor has curled paper swirls holding up frosted mylar that I coated with matte medium to take the transparency down. Evidently, glue works even better because you can tell where the papers meet.

The only process shots I have. I kept with the pink swirl, but as the piece developed the yellow wasn’t working. Her vest also met a green marker for the same reason. Luckily, all this made for minimal digital work.

Paper frills

June.10.2009

A new illustration I’m starting, with not flat papercuts! I was in the sketchbook and saw a Megan Brain image on my stack of inspiration/reference. Trying my hand at it and it’s fun!

Weekend paintings

I’ve been spending the days in studio. After warming up with sketchbook pages I’ve started a papercut. Then after that I started to scan months worth of work. Now I’m even more behind in blog postings!

I had this fabulous dream that the park across the street where I grew up was full of these tiny little colorful groundcover flowers. I’m a sucker for the little gems hidden in lawns. While the evenings are cool enough I’m going out and taking my macro plant photos.
