I had a great time at Quick Draw in SOMA last week! Lots of great artists and visitors, and I even got to draw Adventure Time fanart! It’s a great place to kick off my comics diary for the year, they’re surprisingly slippery comics to put online, since feeling of-the-moment is so vital to both maintain my attention and for them to maintain their relevance! I’ve come up with a method that is fairly quick and spontaneous, but it STILL ends up taking a week from drawing, painting and scanning. I’ve been spoiled by the immediacy of Instagram, but there are several more comics lined up for the very-near future.
I’ve been busy chatting with clients and preparing for my new show this Friday! The workflow right before a show is intense, both creating new pieces that have lingered in dreams for months, and touching up projects that have sat unfinished. I’m excited by the array of pieces, from small sexy lady paintings to large tropical beaches, and I think they’re going to look great on the walls of Field Day!
I’ve been playing with my stop motion app as I work, here’s what I was painting this morning:
