Bohemia - Finished!

Finally got some time to sit down and finish coloring this! Originally the guy in the bg was supposed to be coming out of the background, but instead i muted him a bit and flattened him out to make him seem more 2-dimensional... Its supposed to be a sort of ethereal dream-world.

PPS. I'm going to order some more postcards soon... if anyone wants a free postcard, feel free to send me an email/join my mailing list so i can send you a freebie when i finally get them in.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Went to the MET this weekend! ...and on my way explored Central Park a bit...

Why are the squirrels there so fat?? They're about the same size of the pigeons around here!! I just happened to walk by one that I thought was dead, but then jumped up and sat there breathing really hard!! I think perhaps it had a heart attack from too much junk food...

I also started customizing some tote bags (not finished!)-- that will be added to the store section in a bit. They're fairly large totes, good for carrying tons of stuff!

Bohemia - Sketch Stage

... After spending a week reading and sketching I finally started on the piece below. I wanted to use the theme of 'marriage' for this one... Originally it was going to be a very surreal flat 2-d environment, but I decided that I use that solution much too often, and it would be best to try to develop this background a bit more... The pictures are kinda blurry--I used my phone to take them ( the dim lighting did not help either...)

I've been looking at alot of Autumn Whitehurst and Jim Flora's work, I'd really like to use some flat color contrasted with rendered parts in the coloring stage of the drawing. Anyway, It's about 20% done-- alot of drawing left to do!
