Some progress. It's been a busy week. I had hardly got to work on this at all until tonight. I redid the hippo/water creature all together because I wasn't happy with my previous paper choices. I began fiddling with the background a bit and like where it's going.

Wilson Hsu:

I really like his work. One day I will own some of his prints for my walls. One day I will own prints of all the artists I like!

Going out of town for a long weekend.

I started on this tonight. It was something I had in my sketchbook.

I found some paper I liked and redid the hippo/water creature. I am not sure which one I prefer.

I'm usually really lazy about joining networking sites and often lack the motivation to really set one up. After receiving an invitation to join, I made myself sit down and do it. You can post projects on there, so it's a good way to showcase your work. Also, it's a good way for others to stumble upon your page, since you tag not only your profile, but portfolio as well.

Mine mine MINE.

Also: I went on a lovely date to the BMA last week and caught their exhibit, A Circus Family: Picasso to L├ęger. Overall, I thought it to be a great exhibit and especially enjoyed looking at the work of Fernand Leger. He was a French painter and doing a little bit of research on him brought up a portfolio of not only simple line drawings, but very considered cubist works.

At a creative lull at the moment, so I thought I would take the surprise away from Steph and post a picture of our collaboration in progress. Get ready, Steph! This baby should be in your hands by the end of the week.

It seems I have come full circle and started to read The Something Awful Forums again. Often times I go months without reading them, but I have recently become interested again. Talking to my brother tonight, he also mentioned how he's been reading as well. Must be a twin thing!

An update of the piece I posted yesterday. I digg the idea of a "rising out of the rubbish" sort of theme, which was my inspiration. I also have really been enjoying drawing on top of cutouts I have created. I am not sure I am going to stick with the black lines, but that's all I can do for tonight.

While in the boonies, I watched a lot of television. Almost an embarrassing amount I'd say, considering what I was surrounded by (trees! I love those things!). I won't go into detail about how much I enjoyed Cops, but I did manage to catch a little bit of I Dream of Jeannie. I used to watch A LOT of Nick at Nite when I was younger, which aired an ample amount of the sitcom. Rewatching the show reminded me of what a great intro it has - great shape design to the Jeannie character and the genie bottle. It reminded me some of Mary Blair. It is no wonder that I am drawn to work like this in my adulthood. I grew up on watching old shows from the 60's and 70's. My childhood nostalgia helps to inspire my art-making.

it was so clear to me that it was almost invisible

I started working on this while away, it's in the prelim stages for now.

So the saying says..

I assembled this together yesterday and am going to take it into Illustrator soon.

I leave for vaycay on Friday for ~6 days. I am, however, bringing my laptop complete with a scanner + wacom tablet so I don't fall too far behind on projects. I'll be in the boonies of West Virgina, ya'll!
