Hello, I am going to be selling my art at the MECA Holiday Sale come next Friday and Saturday. Those dates specifically being December the 3rd and 4th. Here is a preview of the artwork that I will be transferring to linoleum printing blocks by that time and selling for prices yet to be determined. Stay tuned for more updates on how it's looking and come down to the Porteous building on Congress Street to see what the Illustration majors and other artists in the school and community are doing!

In the Works

I have neglected what has become a vital part of my process for I think over a week... horrible!

These last two weeks have been awesome. Just this Tuesday my Illustration class went on a field trip to see a lecture given by James Gurney, the creator of Dinotopia and an astoundingly masterful painter, followed up by a trip to the Natural History museum at Harvard... I was simply overwhelmed by the sheer variety of nature. I didn't get to look at it all but I want to go back and stay the day drawing from open to close. You can find out more about the trip from my professor, Jamie Hogan's blog.

I have not been neglectful of posting because I'm not working hard, in fact quite the opposite. All of my projects are well under way and I'm deep into my work on them, but you'll see more of them when there is something more to show.

I wouldn't post without some images though, so here are a few pages from my Summah Sketchbook.

Father Fox and Rev'run Wolf

An experiment with a sketch of mine on how I ink and then how I get those inks to color in Photoshop.

Also, introducing two new con-men characters who may be making it into more of my work soon.

Oil Painting Away!

So, I've been oil painting these past few months. You might ask, my hypothetical reader, "Why haven't I seen any of these oil paintings?" The answer, landscape painting is an ordeal. You have to get to location, if you forgot your stuff you're ruined for the day, their are insects that want to eat your face, freezing cold, high tide sweeping your paintings away and I'm plain inexperienced. However, there is good news, I do have things this week I am proud to show, they are quick and/or in progress but they are showing definite improvements in my ability to paint. So hell yeah!

Here are a few on site paintings:

This next painting started this way today: 

...and ended this way:

More work will be happening on this over the next week but I'm pretty happy with the progress.

I'm Fine Art (NSFW, nekkid people alert!)

This is an old drawing of me as a zombie wearing my "I am a Fucking Warrior" t-shirt that my grandmother made for me. My Illustration professor, Jamie Hogan drew this as part of a collaborative zine project we did over a year ago. Between now and then she took this drawing, cut it out and framed it. And she sold it!

So now I'm telling all of my friends that I am fine art... and they've been all like, "Whatevs Tom." So it goes.

Here are some nudy drawings I did over the summer. I have filled up quite a few sketchbooks this summer and will be collecting scans of my faves over a few weeks. Without further ado, nekkid men and ladies.
