I hope you didn’t miss me too much

I did miss my “bloggy friends” as one bloggy friend says. I’ve had one hectic summer schedule going and it’s still crazy as can be (not to be confused with a heretic summer). I’ve just had to shove stuff off to the side to get this done, along with updating my website. I’ve finished the massive over-haul of my whole site. I edited every page except the contact page, which I should have made one little change to as well. I will be updating the site again in a few days because I have a more edits to do. I will have two more paintings to put up then and I have come out with a t-shirt line, which I will have pics of as well.

 

As far as what’s new now, I Must Be On Candid Camera, Jackson Pollock FTW and Going Green are on Page 5. Forget The Future and What Are You Thinking About? Are on Page 6. Page 6 only has two image slots filled atm, but when I do the update it will be a little more crowded, to include some paintings moving around! (cue epic suspense music!)

And if anyone is pondering about the t-shirts I just mentioned, I will have more info to come with that sometime next week (hopefully). I’m in hangin’ with my family heaven right now and it will be getting even better, but I will try to dash out a quick blurb with the details.

I hope everyone else’ summer has been as glorious as mine has. Let me know what’s going on, with links, pics or other juicy gossip bits.

Song:  Since the summer is about silliness, watch this even if you don’t like dubstep.

Art Class Hiccup

Le sigh…I just wanted to write about my class and post all of the paintings that I did for the class in a couple posts, but I need to hold off. I will explain why later, but I can’t right now. It’s rather aggravating since I haven’t had time to post any of this stuff due to school being so hectic, but now that I am free, I can’t due to an almost unforeseen problem.

Don’t fret too much. I will be sure to post all of them as soon as I can. I don’t want to make my intellectual readers be deprived from my work and words any further. I do have some good info to leave for you to salivate on. I will be adjusting the prices of my current pieces, along with putting up 5 or 6 of the paintings I did for the class for sale.

Here is a picture of the three pieces I had in the student show:

Yes the lighting on my work is crap, but it’s not like I have the power to get them to change the lights. My whole painting class looked a little dim (with regards to illumination), compared to most of the other student work. I will put up good individual pictures when I make my future post.

The artist right below my work, on the left-side is Jonathan Montalbano. He’s a talented guy that has been altering images on his computer in a binary fashion to paint them in a traditional manner. If you have any wonders or queries about his work, here is his contact info:

Showing off my creative side

So I’ve never shown a step by step of one of my works. I normally don’t take pictures through the whole process for various reasons (mainly I don’t have my camera on me when I’m painting). Well I took a handful of shots with for the most recent set I completed and I wanted to go step by step with what I did.

First, I need to go over what I used. I still have an acrylic background on all of these which is nothing out of the ordinary for me. As you can see in the picture below, I used Sharpie markers to create the lines, the Bic Mark-It to mark the boarders, and the China wax marker to make the initial design and go over with my melted wax technique.

The pic below shows the three steps I took to get from beginning to finished product. I first laid out the design of each. Afterward, I drew in the lines of each “container” in varying directions, so they wouldn’t overlap with similar directions. Then I finalized it with melting the wax marker to draw over the layout.

My official wax melters.

The final application to this was putting on two coats of Golden Gel Medium – Soft Gel. The wax was smudging and some was even breaking off. I needed to put on a sealer to hold everything in place. It does give a little bit of a shinny finish to it because I used a semi-gloss (the matte looked horrible).

I hope you enjoyed reading this and taking a small view into part of how I get my work from canvas to a work of art. If anyone else has any process blogs, let me know. I am interested in seeing how others go through their own personal steps.

New Set called OCD

I just added this set on my website Wednesday. I started it in ’09 and finished in earlier this year, sometime around the end of May. I took way too long to photograph and have these pictures edited. Though I am happy they’re now up.

I will be posting a process piece tomorrow. A kind of way for me to take you through the steps that I took to get the paintings from black canvas to masterpieces! Hope you have a great weekend.
