Paint!



Ed, a friend of mine, decided recently to start painting. Since I've done a rather lot of painting (though not recently) I've been talking to him about paint and colour and all that fun suff. I was telling him about an artist I thought he would like... I am terrible with names and i was beating myself over the head trying to remember... But somehow he found the artist on his own: Jenny Saville... her work is amazing though be prepared to be disturbed if you look her up. Looking at her work had me inspired. Above is a tiny little acrylic painting 6" tall, finished it in an hour last night. Based off an old sketch i found a few posts back, inspired by Jenny Saville.

Spring Cleaning

I've been needing to clean for a while now.. I am a very messy person, and I hate cleaning. I really need a cleaning fairy or something... So the odd time when I do decide to clean I am easily distracted... so today while cleaning, going through mounds of drawings, I found a bunch of drawings that I completely forgot about, that got swallowed up by the masses of paper... making my cleaning excursion into an exciting treasure hunt. I'm not sure if I felt more like a pirate or a kid on Easter morning... but I found myself spreading all the papers around and it wasn't making my room any cleaner. But check out what I found!

Giraffe: I didn't draw this at the zoo.... I'm not really sure when or why I drew this... i drew it (I think) sometime in the fall..
I drew this a while ago when I was trying to draw a caricature of myself to go on business cards.. I couldn't decide so I left it pictureless.

I drew this before I had a blog... at the beginning of the summer 2008, trying to return to caricature mode from fine art land...It was supposed to be a self caricature but it turned out like a self portrait... so I never finished it...

Run Cycle Finished?

So I think I'm done with this run cycle... I've never really animated anything before so some critique would be nice... expecially before I go and rotate all the poses...

-EDIT-

So... I just got Flash on my computer!! (finally)... and I decided to fix the animation up in flash.. It needed inbetween frames anyway.

Previously I was using a combination of photoshop and windows movie maker ... and I was having trouble getting things to look smooth/good..... so below is my less ghetto flash version.

can you tell the difference?

Life Drawing Marathon

Yesterday I went with a friend to a 12 hour life drawing marathon at OCAD.
I drew this first one on the subway on the way down... I really like the guy on the bottom right with the concave face.

Go lime or go home... I didn't go home so I went lime.

The model wanted me to call that last one " I love my horse"
