studies for a collaborative project…

these are some rough sketches of a collaboration project I’m doing with Sarah Manson from Ireland, they are still only in their beginning states.

Okay here we go again!

So I think posting about how guilty I felt made me work extra hard to get some decent work produced…. of course when I say decent these are merely study drawings but I always finish my studies since I consider them a piece in themselves. Hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave any comments, they are always helpful! By the way they are all made with chalk pastel and india ink washes.

some of the drawings Im considering for the review

I need input… I have my own thoughts of course but always interested in what others have to say… take a look and let me know which 4 you would choose.

My two new favorites…

I love these but as usual they are collaborations and soon enough they will not look like this so as usual I need to share them with the world before they no longer exsist! Let me know what you think. The layering and color are really exciting for me also, the combination of mark making is quite interesting.

Works from last year… they needed more recognition.

Below are a series of images that were from last semester final project, however most of my new images are drawn from all my previous works and they never got the attention they deserved. They are primarily drawings in colored pencil and the absence of information contrasted with a graphic web was what I was truly working towards.The first image was from a series of drawings based off the idea of pods. The images after are all different renderings of the same idea. The round object represented the remains of something that had broken down/decayed and was being pulled together by the web which was the interconnecting force among the pieces, like a life line.

this image is not completed in this photograph once I photograph it again I will update the image.

new shapes and forms…

Since I’ve been working on complete tonal images I have had such a desire to draw something that is a bit more graphic and less defined. Thus the images bellow developed. The shapes evolved while working on a collaboration project and have started to tell their own story!

I’ve been really interested in line quality and the way shades of grey are used within an image.

This is the most recent version of this piece.

I wanted to be able to work larger while not getting to precious with the work so I’ve been doing a few images that are on a heavy duty craft paper which allows me to work as large as I want this is about 4 feet tall currently.

This was the initial image to have these circular shapes and I love it but it wont be around much longer, this is one of the pieces from the collaboration and I have handed it back to Nicole for her to do her layer. Sad face.
