sketching at the Met

spent a day at the metropolitan museum of art - got to see the superhero exhibit (which was excellent, way better than I expected it to be), the turner exhibit, and a really awesome show of Buddhist painted manuscripts.
and of course no visit to the met would be complete without sketching a little bit from the greek and roman sculptures.
this one was my favorite.

roadtrip art

so, i just returned from a very exciting and fun roadtrip to houston with my brother. we stopped in columbus, nashville, new orleans, then houston (of course). i found that a good way to pass the time in the car was the draw on newspaper pictures!
here are two of my favorites.

lunar colonies

this is a cover illustration for a book that is a collection of essays on lunar colonies. type may or may not be placed in the sky, so i left room just in case. this is a pretty hypothetical collection of colonies - but I fact checked with the author to make sure none of the structures were physically impossible. i wanted my illustration to be a departure from the typical technical illustrations done for books like this - and i wanted to focus more on making the colony a place that someone would actually want to live! despite being hostile - it should look inviting!

last judgement

i seem to be on a religious bent with my illustration - or at least for these last two posts. although neither would be very traditional depictions.
both were made with acrylic paint and india ink.

figured i'd draw something i don't usually draw....teenage girls! these were done relatively quickly. i'm going to try and make drawing female faces as exciting as drawing male faces (for me, that is).
coming up are pictures of a new pair of sneakers I painted for my brother's birthday!
