Well, Today felt like a good day to write!

Hello there,

I know it has been quite some time since my last post but I wanted to announce that I have started a blog that went live on April 1st, The blog is called 365days1year. It is a blog about my everyday challenge of keeping myself in the right mental state to allow myself to draw regularly. With every day I require myself to create something, which can range from a drawing in the sand to a finished watercolor. Either way by midnight of that day there must be a post for everyone to see and read. So far, so good. I am onto day twenty-seven and going strong still. It has been a wonderful challenge for myself, since I now feel that I have an obligation to others to keep the posts coming. Bellow I have included a few images from what I have created thus far. Please take a look and spread the word!

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.

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.

Updated collaboration drawings

the newest version of our collaboration drawings, myself and Nicole Winters… I really enjoy some of the integrations and layering that is occuring.

 

Integrating the figure…

I’m going to keep updating this post with works I do about the figure or that I believe are based off the figure. Today’s drawing was one of the first to truly be driven by the central figural element. Now there was never a goal at rendering a perfect carbon copy of a human just the hints of the form head, shoulder, knee, ect. I like how the figure remains the point of focus but only after you come to it through the fruit like forms that surround her.

drawings that made me crazy for no good reason

These drawings came from an assignment about hiding and revealing, I wish this was more natural but when ever I seem to think about these things I can’t do it, but the second I stop trying I get it! Anyway, I’m still working with the idea and I do like some of the shapes and draping, so this project will continue!
