This is the original piece, finished. Done by hand on white paper with black ink pen, then scanned and the background colored in digitally.
I really like inking hair, so I just drew a hank of hair hanging there, like, "What are YOU looking at?!" I like it so much after scanning and coloring it that I may do MORE hairy drawings.
A long time ago I started this little landscape at the exact dimensions to be my Facebook cover photo. I finally decided to finish it. And there's a bonus lil' purple fairy ant wearing a pink beanie. I don't know why.
Here it is, bitches! My first solo art exhibition, which is also a zine release. The place is the Hibbleton Gallery & their "BookMachine" zine space in the Fullerton, CA Magoski Arts Colony. The date is October 6th, 2017, the time of the opening reception is 6-10pm during Fullerton's Art Walk. Here's MORE INFO.
You can have your pre-fab garden gnomes. I'd rather have some weird thing made out of junk, any day.
So here is "Yardsy." When I was supposed to be cleaning up and consolidating stuff in our back yard, I got distracted with cinderblock and old pots, and this happened.
Here's another one. Is it a fierce warrior, or an extra from an '80s music video? Hard to tell. But it's pissed off.
So I just thought I'd share some of the art pieces I've done since I've been on vacation this summer. I go back to work on July 18th. But I'm trying not to think too much about that. I love my job in the high school library, but there will be some hefty challenges as soon as we all get back. New library management software system (Atriuum), new textbooks to process, Registration to prepare for, etc. So for now, ART!
We've also been doing stuff like having hardwood veneer flooring installed in our living room and hallway, and two new ceiling fans, and planting new stuff in the back yard. And on the 4th of July we set off a shit-load of legal fireworks in front of our driveway, alongside our cul-de-sac neighbors who were setting off clearly ILLEGAL giant scary fireworks. It was thrilling!
