Did a wood-burned piece for my friend, Brandon (his work is posted below), and his wife as an art trade at the end of last quarter. In exchange I got one of his awesome posters which is hanging in my living room and it had been awhile since I did wood-burning! My goal by the time I graduate is to have artwork from my colleagues to hang in my new apartment wherever I’m living and do artwork in return for them.
It’s on a 12”x24” panel and he’s a Missouri nerd because that’s his home state.
Sorry it’s been awhile since I updated. I’ve been busy with my freelance job already, but I’m working on new stuff :)
I think I’m done. I just want to cut the corners so they’re rounded and scan the entire piece in, but I can’t do either of these things until the buildings open again in a week.
Ink, colored pencil, vine charcoal, and Mod Podge to lift the hair and lips from everything else.
My final for Survey of Illustration! I may still work on it, but for now, it’s due today and I’m happy with where it is now, especially since it involved a lot of new techniques and experimentation.
I’m so exhausted…I don’t know if I’ll touch any paint this Spring Break o___o
Wood, wood burning and acrylic paint!
EDIT: And it’s Pi day! So today is all about my kitten except unfortunately, she wasn’t born in March, she was born in August…and I can’t do much for her except let her do what she wants and she already does that…
Scanned before I start painting. Completed the woodburning this afternoon. I’ll begin painting tomorrow. The bottom looks busy but it’s because it’s not painted yet so it’s all line art right now.
Time to dive head first and lose myself in my work. Los Campesinos! and a drive to get these projects done will save me.
Woodburning practice. I think I’m going to do a few more before I begin my final project.
It’s kind of scary since you can’t really erase a burned line.
Finally scanned this. ”A Home for You & Me”. I really like the idea of hair turning into unexpected things; in this instance, the flying squirrels’ nest.
Acrylic paint, graphite, colored pencil, gold ink, a little love for a little buddy, and a Los Campesinos! playlist.
Miss you, Puck.
