Making progress on getting stuff set up behind the scenes, finally. Here's another random sketchbook page in the meanwhile.

Stephen King show at Gallery 1988. I figured out the show folder (which was stupid easy /king) and bought most of their framed Pennywise shit. But anyway:

I've seen two of those paintings in progress because I follow the artists on FB (Ania Tomicka and Kelly McKernan).  Cool collection.

Ok, updating the blog again now. Still not perfect, but it works.

I added one more view to the previous study, I had forgotten the posterior view!



And here's a drawing using the SWTOR promo statue of Darth Malgus for reference:



Both graphite 9x12. The Malgus is wicked primitive, but very educational in not being a copy of another artist's work. Struggled with the details at the small scale, it's super primitive. I'm trying to learn Photoshop since I broke down and subscribed to CC for Lightroom and it includes PS, so I'm playing with coloring Malgus. Need to find my crappy old tablet and hope it works with the macbook...mouse ain't cuttin' it.

Still plugging away at mannikins, great proportional tool but I struggle with repetition, though I know it's a key to success...



And a friend bought me a Da Vinci anatomy book, so I did a little copy that I'll put on a thank you card for her.,

I can totally understanding needing to work on line work.  I have issues with control as well.  All my lines end up being the same weight and value and it's something I've struggled with for years.

Anyways, looked back and realized I haven't posted anything in a while, so here's a bit of an art dump based on my 100 day project stuff. 











And then I took a short break for a few days and was trying to get caught up last night.  Everything was shit.  Just total, crappy looking shit.  Ugh.

Some cool variations on the theme!

I relish the few times I don't think my stuff looks like garbage. I'm struggling so much with the proportion stuff. I bought a mannikin to work on, em, mannikin posing. Hopefully that will get me through this phase.

First ever Disney Fine Art show w/ Muppets. I spasmed and picked up 3 print proofs, each numbered 1 of 5.







Would anybody be interested in seeing all the art I acquire for my dumb house?

Those are some nice looking prints, Schild.  I'd be happy seeing what kinds of things you (and others) pick up, because that can always lead me to finding new artists to check out.

I need to get my latest pics online where I can share them.

Bought this one on a whim because well, why would anyone frame a patch? Got lucky and it came in a sick ass treated piping frame. Actually looks great. Deffo paid more for the frame than anything else.

So, I've actually loved this artist for years, just never had walls big enough for his larger format stuff. Alex Cherry. Out of LA, I think. You can grab all of his shit on eyesonwalls.com.

nothing special about this one, just a massive framed art block.

Things that are currently being framed.





I guess I'll post those when they come in.

I'm picking up 6 pieces this coming monday including the Muppet stuff. The other 3 are Pinhead, Alex (Clockwork Orange) and a vaporwave Rocko's Modern Life thing.

OH, one other thing



Ever seen the movie Oculus? The frame I got looks like the mirror in that. It's matted with I think 1.5inches of black with the inside being bright read. *yum*

I have... a lot of wallspace. And I just remembered 4 more things in the house.

And this is the list of places I've signed up for or get newsletters from and check periodically for stuff. Mondo, 1988, and BNG (Bottleneck Gallery) are fucking f5-wars and it sucks ass. Also, Conde Nast is fucking amazing but expensive as hell (deservedly so), so I haven't picked up anything there... yet.

Took the plunge and ordered a Klopfenstein PE101 easel. We use them at the Institute and they're fucking tanks. I've been hating my (relatively high end) wooden easel since I bought it, wobbly and too short for a jarl like me. And made in the US, unlike most of the wooden models. It was nice to actually talk to someone in the office where they're made.

Some artist is going to be really happy with my will, because this thing is definitely going to outlast me!

I have a Bottleneck Piece and agree. I missed out on the limited runs of both pieces I wanted and wound up with an inferior low-color version of the one I did buy, sadly. It was so different I decided to pass on the 'standard' version of the second piece I wanted rather than buy it.  It can't help them in the long run selling things this way.
