6X6 madness!

It seems that Mr. Langhorne Slim is having a logo design contest... and I would love, love, love, LOVE to win it! Here are my two submissions to the contest.

Working on 6X6, the final of the man, the myth, the legend, EDWARD GOREY!!!

I've been wanting to incorporate different media into my pieces, and this was my first go, yet another 6X6 piece.

I've been working on getting a nice likeness of George Harrison all week, and I'm pretty pleased with this final piece. In addition to entering it in the 6X6 show, I think I'll use this image for a new promotional mailer to hand out to musicians that I meet.

Finally, a preliminary sketch of Mr. Harrison.

SXSW recovery

So... I just got back from my vacation!!!! This is me in front of the winning art, on display at the Readymade Rocks party during SXSW! It was such an honor to be there, I met many amazing people and got to see amazing musicians perform.

Here's me in front of the other piece that was in the show at the party. The best part of the party was when Sean from Creative Allies got up onstage to introduce Matt Morris and introduced me to the crowd as the contest winner!

I got a lot of sketching done on my plane rides, flying from Roch to Florida, Florida to San Antonio, and back to Roch. This is my favorite from the trip, a portrait of the Bowerbirds from an article about them in Readymade Magazine.

I've been revisiting the work of Egon Schiele this week, and his graceful, graceful execution of HANDS. I've struggled with drawing hands for years, it always seems like a battle to me.

I really like how the hands in this sketch for the 6X6 show came out. Next, I want to try just coloring the face and hands, a-la Egon.

Also for 6X6, the man, the myth, the legend, Edward Gorey. My love abounds!!!

Cycling season has begun!!! Who's excited? THIS GIRL!!!!!!

first tattoo

Now that I've shown my mom... I can show everyone else! I got my first tattoo last Saturday, and it's in honor of one of my favorite singers, Langhorne Slim, and also commemorates my first few years of college at SUNY Purchase.

I got my work done at Temple Tattoo by Greg Caggiano. Check them out!
