Study at 31

"Study at 31"
12" x 9"

We all know the "if your going to do something, do it right" proverb and since I have a show planned for later this year I'm going to give it my all. Game systems were sold, no television, weekly trips to the library, art books and dvds get more attention than my girlfriend, the works. So in addition to the preparation, I've been doing experiments in different mediums and materials to explore what is going to be best for certain pieces. "Study at 31" is a self portrait that took a couple of hours and is from life. A few future pieces will involve figures, so this is just a warmup of things to come.

Books in Progress

Visiting the Emprnt site inspired a post about my bookcase that constantly evolves.

Art books, reference materials, sketchbooks, yearbooks, it's ready to lose an afternoon with you.

The pictures speak for themselves, but I neglected to include a picture of a shelf that houses video game magazines from the early nineties. I just can't donate a nostalgic 16-bit love affair.

Take care:)

The Covers of OZ

After a wonderful post from ISO50, I came across some favorite OZ covers. Of course, we have our own american treasure Charles Manson (above), but see some hippie visual goodness for yourself. Link
