Drawing Club

pencil, 20 minute pose

Last night I sat in on a session at the Drawing Club. It was really great to draw from a live model after a long time of drawing from my head. After spending the last few months rendering monsters, focusing on classic line and shape relationships in the real world and other art school crap was just excellent mental exercise... Hope fully I can make this a weekly thing.

Igloo Tornado : The Aftermath

Igloo tornado, my art fraternity, just had our opening reception at Black Maria Gallery. My camera was out of batteries so I didn't get a chance to take any photos. I poached the one above from Tom Neely.

If you want to look see all of the pieces, and even buy one, check out the Black Maria gallery web site. A few of my little drawings are left.

Here is an interview with that makes me look really good.

Reception pics from opening night.

More pics!

That's all for now. I'll have some exciting news in a couple of weeks. It's nice to have stuff to blog about for a change.

What time is it?

If you don't know, consider purchasing this clock that I painted for an upcoming show at the Pony Club, in Portland Oregon.The show is titled "11:11", which is fantastic, because whenever I notice that it's 11:11, I say outloud "Hey, it's 11:11". The usual response is "So, what?" Then I point out "It's 4 ones in a row." I guess that isn't a very interesting conversation. Below is a detail.

Let me tell you... I think I am done with painting on objects. I don't have anything against it personally, but I always run into problems. Well, at least it's functional.

Edit: Here is the postcard for the show with pertinent details.

Igloo Tornado at Black Maria: Round 2

Guess what, I'm posting on here again. Here's a sneak peak at a piece from my upcoming art show. It's with my buddies in Igloo Tornado at the awesome Black Maria gallery. I went out on limb on a lot of these pieces and it's been a lot of work but I hope people like it!
