Sketch

Sketch

I’m using the seascape and landscape photos from the photo album I found at Goodwill as source material for a series of quick paint sketches. (Quick for me, that is. I’m trying to spend no more than 15 minutes on each one.)

This one was done with Faber-Castell Gelatos and Arteza gouache. I’ve not worked with Gelatos before, but I enjoyed using them with gouache. 11/10 would do again.

I gave in and bought some Arteza gouache paints to play with. I had fun with them, so it was money well spent.

Immunity Against Apathy

If art does nothing else, it protects us from apathy.

Gluebook Volume 9

I finished this gluebook yesterday. It’s another remixed portrait book, this time with (mostly) fashion models. The images came from various fashion and teen magazines (Vogue, Seventeen, W, etc.). The longer I worked on it, the more I thought about how we all more alike than different.

And a quick and sloppy flip through video.

Working

I did a few easy collages in a new book. This time I’m recycling an old middle school health textbook and using images from fashion magazines.

Woe Arm

I overdid things the weekend before last, so last week my wrist and thumb were sore. A combination of aggravated thoracic outlet syndrome and tendinitis. I took things easy this last weekend. Which of course means that today, my left elbow is sore, from overcompensating for my right hand, so now I’m trying to rest my left arm. Good times!
