The art group that I’m in currently has an online gallery that you should check out! The theme of the show that’s up right now is Monster Mayhem. I’ll post some of my entries later this week.
I’ve been getting ready for an art show the past few weeks, and it’s been a blast. The show is titled “Heroes and Villains,” so you can pretty much guess the subject matter for all of the pieces being entered. You probably recognize this scene from when I posted its’ progress a number of weeks ago. I decided to finish it up with the addition of Wolverine. The idea for this painting was very much influenced by the new Wolverine movie coming out which is based in Japan.
I wanted to try something new with the pieces I did for this art show. I decided to combine the two styles of art that i have the most fun with: concept landscapes and cute, chubby characters. I like how they came out, serious yet playful.
If you’re in the Rochester area, you should come out to the show on February 8th at Record Archives!
It seems to be an established tradition, as of three years ago, for me to draw our Christmas cards that get sent out during the holidays. This year I was inspired by the comic Calvin & Hobbes, by Bill Watterson. I basically drew myself with my girls in the style of the comic with a watercolor scene from one of Watterson’s book covers.
Exciting news! My site has been featured on the blog for a sweet social site called Funsherpa. You’ve probably heard of it if you live in the Chicago area, but they’re rapidly expanding to other cities, checking out all the cool and fun things to do in each one. Check out my interview and blog feature HERE!
Oh, and the big-eyed yeti is mainly because it’s the animal that comes to mind when I think of a Sherpa in the mountains.
