I’m super honored to have been invited to participate in QPop’s “Bros vs Bros” art show, focusing on Super Mario Bros and the Shaw Bros. Growing up on Nintendo, I couldn’t pass up making fan art of some favorite foes turning the tables on Mario! Leave it to a koopa to put an unripe Yoshi egg in a [?] block.
I’m super excited to be a part of Paging Mr. Herman: A Pee-Wee Herman Art Retrospective! On display from July 19-25th, 2014, the Nerdist showroom at Meltdown Comics will have a million, billion, trillion pieces of Pee-Wee inspired art! I recreated his wallet, complete with images and cards of his past. All illustrations were made with watercolor and markers, and the wallet’s cover was painted with acrylic. See you there!
Another drawing adapted to watercolor, drawn during a sketchgroup last summer. Drawn from a frame of some movie… with “China” in the title, I believe.
You have to get out and appreciate nature and its colors from time to time. As I was getting a ride back to school from the beach, I absorbed the colors of the sky, and let the telephone wires dance along as the car moved.
As artists, we can put infinite work and detail into tiny or large portions of the canvas. However, it’s the application of artistic knowledge that directs the attention of the viewer. In this example, the part with absolutely no work (a square left white) hogs all the attention, when all the work went into the colorful squares (which even have patterns of color theory, if you look carefully).
Painted this last year after a Portal-a-thon.
