Old Stuff I haven't Posted

First of all, Merry Christmas Everyone!

And now, a pumpkin I painted for Halloween:

Here are some process shots of a painting I've been working on for WAY too long. I don't like where it's going, maybe that's why I kind of gave up on it. I liked it better in the beginning.



I'm going to try to get the face back to where I was going when I started.

I think I need to start drawing more. I finally have a monitor now and a memory card reader so I'll post more stuff more often!

Chalkin it up

So I'm trying to get into doing some chalkboard signs, as I mentioned earlier and I've had success so far! I recently did this 5' X 8' sign for a restaurant in Jersey City, Satis Bistro. It's a little on the plain side, but a good start I'd say. I've also done a bunch of other stuff for them through my regular job and I think it's shaping up to be a great restaurant and a cozy detour from New York. I took this picture from a nice little write up about them in Jersey City Independent, with more to follow!

I also made that vinyl sign at work!

Messing around in InDesign

I like to pretend that some of the people I draw have come to write memoirs.

Few things

     So I've been binding some
     books lately.

     I painted these a little bit ago.

     I painted these last night.

     I'm going to paint on these eventually

The other week I went out around Brooklyn and tried to take some picture for color/texture inspiration.

The Golden Nugget- and we ain't talking Vegas

I like this guy

Girl, whatchu do?

One of the books I'm doing is about food, so I've been painting a few veggies here and there. For those of you who know her, Linda Warner would be so proud.

I really just can't settle on which paper I like better. The three that look more like watercolor are just on Strathmore sketch paper. The eggplant and tomato are on 140lb watercolor paper. I think they're actually in acrylic. The others are gouache and watercolor.

They pretty much led to this, although I like them as studies better.


The Letter "I"

What else? Here's a preliminary part of one for a different book:

So a while back I did an illustration for Make Per Month for my friend Charlie of this guy I saw on PATH often and liked it a lot, and decided a few days ago to start doing a bunch of them and possibly making them into a book of postcards or something. We'll see. Here's one I did yesterday:

Forgive my poor scanning skills. This is from memory, this poor woman on the PATH train has severe thinning issues.

Next up, a lady with double chin whiskers:

This city is a treasure trove of interesting people.

Possibly finally doing some art in NY

Well, I AM actually working on my children's books now, however slowly. I'm meeting with some people today to possibly do work for or at a fashion event in September called Fashion's Night Out. Could be a good opportunity I think. I hope. Once I stop being lazy I'll scan and post some of the things I've been working on. Oh and I'm starting a new painting too! I have the panels hung, just not sure what exactly I'm going to do yet. More frequent updates to come---

<----- I wish I took this picture. I hope everyone's having a great summer!

So for the time being, while I wait to get my webspace, my online portfolio can be seen here. Basically it's everything that's already been put on here in the same place.

I Heart Art Update

So they accepted my piece for the I Heart Art show. I'm pretty sure they don't deny anyone, but it's still exciting. If you're in the area come out for the opening: April 17th from 1-5pm at WORK Gallery in Red Hook, 65 Union Street, Brooklyn NY 11231. Woop Woop.

This kinda counts as my art. .

Well, it's art related. Sunday was so fun. Greenpointillism Face Painting had an event called Video Juice Box. It's a weekly show put on for kids and parents in Williamsburg. It's held at the Knitting Factory and hosted by a man named Jeremy. It's a really great interactive show that features new media and is based on video/ digital content supplemented with acts and performances by the Video Juice Box crew. It's a really great social context for kids because they don't act differently in front of the kids and it was just as entertaining for us and the parents as it was for the kids (if not more entertaining). Anyway, Lesley, Kendall and I, through Greenpointillism Face Painting are hoping to collaborate with them and become a cool attraction in addition to the show. Every Sunday at 2pm!

I Heart Art

My roommates told me about the I Heart Art WORK/Wassaic Spring Fundraiser. Each person submits a 5x7 piece to be auctioned for the benefit of The Wassaic Project and WORK Gallery. I just did really quick piece.
