Art Nouveau

It has been pretty busy with graduation right around the corner. So much work has been done! First of all, I have a new website up and running. This one should be TONS easier for me to update (thanks to wix). All finished work will get posted there or here rather. Be sure to follow the website. And if you aren't already following, you should also check out the facebook page as I have been posting sketches to various projects. Different images for each page, a little treat for everyone. :)

With that out of the way, here is what I have been working on (and the subject for this post). I, like many, adore Art Nouveau. While I actually like the work of Beardsley and Gaudi (I really think more buildings need a touch of Gaudi), a great many people jump right to Mucha. As such I went more towards Mucha for sake of identification, that and it actually fits better. I choose three animals that have plants that go with them; Fox, Wolf, and Tiger. Also three animals that are high in the popularity charts. I've chosen a watercolor/mixed media approach to this (what was I thinking???). I've also been playing with tea staining to see what I can do with it. Here is a picture of after the tea stain...

This is the last sneak peek I'm giving out. The next showing of this piece will be finished. The purpose though, is for bookmarks for promotional items for my graduation. Maybe even post cards. I don't know yet. At the very least bookmarks, for the random few people who still like paper in their hands.

Months Gone By

Turns out I am just as bad at blogs as I am at keeping a journal. I like collecting them, but I never write in them except once in a blue moon. Not that I have many followers, still it would be nice if I kept up with this.

I do have pictures to share. Some I'm even relatively proud of. I figured I would post them here since I haven't update my website yet. The website coding is giving me some problems and a headache, so until I iron it out it will remain un-updated.

Until there. Have some pictures!

Done for Product Display. I was a little horrified by the label Party Animal, and since the project was to improve upon one, it seemed perfect. That was how this came to be. I have also decided as much as I adore them, chihuahuas are a pain in the rear to draw. Period.

And I did this some time ago, but I am going to share it here since it was just so funny. Love Dog Shaming. Toby pouted afterwards, but he deserves it for being a general brat.

Long Lost Post?

It's been hectic. From IMC to working crazy hours upon my return. Follow that up with the start of what has the makings of a very crazy quarter. Which means personal art has been at a complete stand still unfortunately. The large canvas is just taking up space despite the fact I know exactly what I want to put on it.

So to tide everyone....ha, everyone....over, I am posting the piece that was done at IMC.

I would love to hear what people think. Besides Dad talking about the arms :P

And also, from today, the grayscale version of the new logo I am cooking up for my website. The new website will roll out as soon as I finish all of the graphics for it. I have some nice plans for it. But instead of rushing it for class, it will be done RIGHT. So there.
