Bristol Madness


Here's my latest sketchbook page. I admit i'm inspired after seeing Wes Burt's sketch pages, and i'm trying to assimilate a few of his techniques. The things i'm trying to keep in mind are:

-push the values as far as i can with my pencil

-use bristol and F lead

-compose the sketchbook page as a whole

-Make linework less apparent and use value to indicate shapes

Geiger wins and elCoro painting!

From the recent Massive Black Workshop, Revelations here in Seattle. Mr. Geiger wins an original oil painting of the Black Frog by elCoro himself! As a favor I'm letting it cure at my house since it had no chance of making it back to Denver on the plane without turning into mud so I get to admire it for a few monthes while it cures. Oh darn...:)

Got a DS?

then you don't need a Cintiq:) check out Colors, a free painting program for the Nintendo DS that takes advantage of the pressure sensitive screen for painting.

Revelations Workshop










Ahoy.. - Some of the dudes attended the massive black/conceptart.org workshop over the past few days. Here are a few gestures i did during the "offtime", as well as a shot of some of us eating some of the most delicious sushi i've ever had.
