Artist Trading Cards!

So this is my first Huuuuuuuuuuuuge batch of ATC's. These were made as part of opening night gifts for the cast and crew of Metamorphoses. They were a big hit and fun to make! I liked them so much that I have joined and ATC yahoogroup so that I may continue to make these and share them!
My favorites are Phaeton, Pandora, and Baucis.

New ART!!!!

Yay! I am excited, that somehow amidst the craziness of upcoming finals I have managed to create a small yet fun piece of art! It was for Illustration Friday's subject of 'polar' so of course I went to my favorite arctic animal. Yes I know, one day I will stop drawing penguins!

This was actually just a fun little play with texture. It is a layer of acrylic paint, pen, and colored pencil. I rather like how the pencil over the textured paint came out. It almost has a transparent look to it.

Hopefully as finals finish up and I get my scenic design for Emperor's New Clothes put together I will be able to do more with Illustration Friday but for now! Enjoy!

Yay for bookmarks! I've been churnin' 'em out like a fool!
That, and my scenic design, are about all I've been working on these days. It's ok, the bookmarks give me something to do in Theatre History!
More to come later, once I get my but in gear and do something major! ^__

More Quibbles!!!

Weee for more quibbles!! This is a blue Quibble, who needs a name, that I doodled for my great and wonderfully artistic friend, Serena-chan! He's also on a bookmark because I found a store that will sell my artwork on consignment!

I'm starting small with bookmarks because a] she said she needed stuff like that and b] I can doodle stuff like that in class pretty inconspicously. After that I'm going to work into giftcard sets and journals and whatnot and perhaps even pieces of artwork!

I'm very excited because even though its a small store it's getting my name and product out there which is the first good step in starting a business around your artwork!

I'll be sharing more designs and stuff as I get them together.

Well, here's another APO Cabaret poster. They are tons of fun to work on, because I can be a little goofy. So here it is!

Nothing Much These Days.....

I have many loves in life.

Art and painting being the most significant [right under Kalin of course!] but another great love of mine is playing my violin. Due to several physical ailments in my hands and wrists I was unable to play for a very long time, however a few surgeries later [just kidding it was only one!] I am back in the ballgame, so to speak.

I am currently the violin player in a band for my friend Tracy's show The Last Five Years. The road has been frought with many a frustration and cuss word but I am now thoroughly absorbed in the world of this music and playing my violin after so long. Therefore the flow of artwork, for which this blog was originally intended, has trickled to a halt. But never fear once this is over you will be seeing much more from me!

Off to French class with me!

Bad days....

It's amazing to me how artwork is effected by mood and circumstance, and then effects your mood and circumstances.
This little guy is Quixote, and he is a Quibble. I think a Quibble is somewhere between a naked mole rat and a hamster. He popped up in my journal on a very bad day a couple of weeks ago. I was frustrated with life, my art, music, homework...and pretty much everything, and as I was making out a to do list I look down and there he his smiling and cuting back at me.
I still felt like shit, but with a little less gusto because now I had this cuteness smiling back at me. I'm feeling much better now but this little guy still makes me happy. Squeee!

I'm a little stressed out here recently due to the semester starting, scheduling conflicts, paint charging two different shows at once, playing music that is just a little outside my comfort zone AND taking a drawing class. However, enough whining out of me. I am excited about the drawing class. Now perhaps I'll learn how to do things properly!

To our left is an older piece that is a multimedia collage poster of DOOOOOM!!! The background is a mixture of watercolor paper, tulle, tissue paper, markers, watercolors, pen, and colored pencil. The text and the, oh so cute, little penguins were then layered over it in Photoshop!!

My favorite part of this piece is the mixture in textures. I always find it relaxing to go back and look at old pieces and remember what I really enjoyed about creating them. It helps calm me down.

I'm really enjoying getting into collage work, and multimedia pieces. Right now I'm reading several different books on the subject and am finding millions of new projects to work if I could only expand the hours of the day from twenty four to thirty-six. Then I might have time to get it all done! Off to class now! Ciao!
