2 New

Naomi - 9x12 charcoal on toned paper
She's Got Shake Appeal - 9x7 oil on thick cardboard paper*

I drew up a friend that I made while I was in New York, I plan on doing more drawings and some paintings with her as the model, I'm excited to get to those sometime soon!
I used the confetti motif again on the oil painting, I'm starting to like the effect.

I decided to use some of the 'confetti' motif I've been using in some of my drawings.

Gogo Blackwater

Portrait study of Gogo Blackwater (Gogo Suicide)

8.5 x 11 - oil on gessoed paper

I implemented some techniques I learned by watching Donato Giancola and Dan Dos Santos, I will most likely do many more studies this way.

Top to bottom:
Blue Shift - 14x18 oil on board
Patton - 9x12 oil on paper

I've been learning more and more about oil and how it reacts to different surfaces. I'm getting better at controlling the layers, as well as mixing more custom colors on my pallet. I have 9 paintings I'm slowly working on that I will hopefully be done with the majority by the end of the year.

First Annual Supersonic Electronic Invitational

Hey everyone, I've been busy-busy lately, but I got a chance to check out the Supersonic Electronic Invitational over at Spoke Art on Thursday 1/5/12 and it was pretty awesome. I got to see a lot of my favorite contemporary artists in person. The difference between seeing something in person versus online is WAY different. It's very awe-inspiring and can have a profound affect on you in a strange and good way.
I took a few pics (it got crowded pretty fast, sorry for the skewed positioning)

I particularly enjoyed seeing the works of Erik Jones, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Joao Ruas, Conrad Roset and Tatiana Suarez in person, I've been following their works for varying amounts of years/months and I was extremely impressed by the degree of tallent these artists possess, as well as the many others that were exhibited.

If you can't make it, check out what was displayed here: Spoke Art

I also got to look at a painting by Charmaine Olivia who is having a show on 1/14/2012 at Shooting Gallery and I'm very excited to check her work out in person as well. Oh, and before I forget, I was super stoked to pick up a free tumblr tote bag with some stickers and other free-bees, my companion and I were pleased about those too.

More updates from me to come soon as I battle this cold/acute tonsillitis :-/
