"Cancer" Acrylic on canvas, 30"x36"
Bubble Bobble. Digital Painting is scary.
Since it’s PAX weekend and I feel like I’m hungover despite not drinking, I’m going to cop out and post something REALLY old. This piece is called “Warstory” and it’s from my Junior year at RISD. The was a standard assignment to illustrate an article from a magazine called Plansponsor. The catch was that this was that this article wasn’t published yet and one member from the class would get the job.Great for the students, and great for the art director because she got to choose from many concepts.
While I didn’t get the job, my girlfriend at the time did. I wasn’t burnt up because this was where I really started to hit my stride as an artist. I was starting to realize that I could draw almost anything I wanted to and still meet the conceptual requirements of a “traditional illustration job”. This article was about a divorce.
It’s good to look back and be able to say how much I’ve improved as an illustrator, but not only as an illustrator, but as a human being.
"The Great Seal". Sketchy Sketch!
